Healthy Obsession #3: Exercise
I have never been overly fond of exercise and after I had kids, I used the excuse that I didn't have time to go to the gym or work out on a regular basis. After years of trying to convince me of my need to exercise regularly, my very fit husband finally won over my excuses and just over a year ago, I started working out regularly.
We work out exclusively at home using Crossfit exercises and techniques. The beauty of Crossfit is that you don't need a lot of equipment to do the workouts and many of them can be done without any equipment at all.
Another huge benefit to Crossfit workouts is that you can get an intense and excellent workout in a short amount of time. By completing the workouts as fast as you can, you get some added cardio work during a seemingly non-cardio workout. The only equipment my husband and I use is a pull-up bar my husband installed in our basement and a set of weights...but like I said, you don't have to use equipment to still get excellent workouts. I will be posting workouts regularly...some will use equipment but the majority of them will use just your body. If you are looking for a way to exercise regularly but don't have a lot of time or equipment, this is the workout agenda you should use!
