How to Get In Your Workout

How to Get In Your WorkoutI know…sometimes getting in your workout is the last thing you want to think about. Maybe it’s a time thing, or you don’t like going to the gym, or you don’t really know what to do when you workout that will actually help you reach your goals. You know how important your nutrition is reaching your goals, well Yes we do need to workout too. 

My Friend Mallory Moger created this fabulous one-week fitness challenge. These exercises below can be done alone or with a partner, at your house or at the park—no equipment necessary. Each series of exercises shouldn’t take you longer than 30 minutes. Tip – make sure to schedule your workout in your phone as an appointment!

Stick with this for one whole week and see how you feel. At the very least, you’ll discover you have what it takes to keep moving even when your body wants to quit. And that’s something to be proud of!

Let’s get started!


This is one of my favorite workouts! It’s hard at first but gets easier as you go because the amount of reps goes down by one after each round.

  • 10 Pushups
  • 10 Jumping Jacks
  • 10 Squats
  • 10 Crunches
  • 9 Pushups
  • 9 Jumping Jacks
  • 9 Squats
  • 9 Crunches
  • 8 Pushups
  • 8 Jumping Jacks
  • 8 Squats
  • 8 Crunches…

You get the picture…keep counting down (7, 6, 5, 4, 3) and when you’ve finished your 2’s, finish off your workout with a 1-minute plank!
