 As we all know by now, I love to cook and I love to eat! With all the sweets that I make for Gabriella's Goodies, I really need to workout to keep my weight under control. Now let me just start off with 2 very important things.

1. I do NOT eat everything that I cook. I usually either have my hubby taste test things, or I will bring them into work and have someone else try them :)

2. I do NOT like to workout. In fact, I (half) jokingly told my husband that the only reason we were getting married was so that I could let myself go. However, right after we got married, he decided to get his ass to the gym and start this crazy workout routine, so now I feel like I need to keep up with him.

OK, now that that's out of the way, I can tell you that I have been trying to find workout routines that are easy on my asthma and fun so that I won't get bored. I feel like I am now in a groove that I can share with you. I don't belong to a gym, and I don't own too much workout stuff, so if you are interested in getting in shape, I think this is an easy routine to get into. You also do not need to work out 5 days a week, but if I don't then I get used to not working out and I fall off the workout wagon.

So here is what I do:

Monday: 30 mins of yoga, 20 mins of running/jogging, 10 mins of weights. There is one station on youtube that has amazing full yoga sessions: http://www.youtube.com/user/yogayak

Tuesday: 30 mins of Belly Dancing (who knew it was such a cardio workout?) I use youtube.com for this, and they are all pretty cheesy, but if you can get past the cheesiness of them, they really do give you a good workout. Here is an example of a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=In1bptHtm0I

Wednesday: 40 mins of Zumba (20 mins of which was solely abs) (sorry no good links here, I actually got the DVDs for my birthday last year.)

Thursday: 30 mins of Zumba

Friday: 20 mins of running/jogging, 10 mins of weights, and then either Zumba or Yoga

Weekends: FREE!! I typically don't schedule something for my weekends, but if I am feeling especially tight or stressed I will do some yoga

I just thought that this would be something fun to share (non foodie related). I want to start doing some work with a punching bag and more weights, because I really want to focus on upper body strength as well as getting rid of some flabby areas :)

I will try to convince the hubby to do a little post with the workout regime that he sticks to(for those men who read this), but I think it's very similar to this: http://stronglifts.com/stronglifts-5x5-beginner-strength-training-program/

Enjoy! :)
