Back to basics - Zwow #1

This morning I found it super hard to get out of bed again. My body feels stiff all over from the weekend just passed, and I think that regardless of all the dancing, walking, drinking, partying I did - sleeping on the ground for three nights does not do wonders for anyone.

I was originally going to get out of bed and go for a run or do a workout in the lounge room, but to be honest none of those options sounded better than having an extra bit of bed time.

Lunch today was more of that amazing Farro Salad that I have made in the past.  It is so simple and easy to make up - it really does only take about 10mins.

The weather was so lovely and warm today.  I am truly blessed to be able to work from my lounge room right now and have all the windows in the house open.  Working in a big office can definitely have its pro's but not being able to open a window to let fresh air in, really does suck.

Wednesday WOD
Zwow #1 - click HERE for link to the Zuzka Light Website

10 dive bombers
5 burpees
20 squats to leg lift on each leg
5 burpees
10 side plank lift per side
5 burpees
10 pistol squats on each leg
5 burpees

Repeat the above circuit 3 times.  This is a time challenge so you need to write down how long it took you.  

My time today was 19mins 55 seconds and I burnt 251Kcal.
*I can't complete full pistol squats so mine were assisted by holding onto my dining chairs and going as low as I could.

Talk about sweaty Betty afterwards.  It was pouring off me and it took my heart rate a bit longer than usual to get back down to where it belongs.  I highly recommend this workout and future Zwow's I post.  You don't need any equipment - just your body weight and around 20mins each day.

There are no excuses - this IS the best time to start getting back into it or even start workout, if you needed a nudge.
