Leg Day 12/11/2012

As the holidays approach, my goal is still to stay motivated in getting to the gym.  If I’ve had a busy day, I often fall into this mental pit where I can convince myself I’m tired enough to not work out, or I’ll somehow make it up tomorrow. It’s usually b.s. and just an excuse. To date, there has never been a time when I’ve regretted going to the gym. With that in mind, my goal is stay on schedule as best I can amidst all the crazy holiday activities.

AND, the below workout took me less than 12 minutes yesterday.  I can do it, you can do it.  Get to the gym.
