Waking Up Accountable Continues

As you know, I started Waking Up Accountable to get myself going in the mornings and make sure I'm exercising during the week [no matter how busy my schedule is or becomes]. Week 1 was a complete success! It was challenging to get myself out of bed 15-20 minutes earlier, especially on a daily basis, but it was also unbelievably refreshing to feel the positive difference that each morning workout made. Not only that, but reaching the point where it started becoming easier to roll out of bed and get moving is one of the feelings I love most! Last week, I decided to create and complete a fresh new schedule of morning workouts to switch it up from week 1. Now, I have 2 full weeks of routines to use in case I don't have time to make a new one each week - SCORE! Check it out, give it a try, and start feeling better one morning at a time:

30 seconds plank
20 squats (or lunges if you prefer)
30 seconds side plank on left
30 seconds side plank on right
50 (phantom) jump rope
Repeat 2 more times

50 (phantom) jump rope
Repeat 2 more times

100 jumping jacks
20 crunches
20 side leg raises (each side)
10 burpees
12 reverse crunches
12 back extensions or supermans
50 (phantom) jump rope
Repeat 2 more times


20 ski jumps
15 mountain climbers
12 dumbbell chest press
12 dumbbell flys
50 jumping jacks
12 dumbbell overhead press
Repeat 2 more times


30 seconds plank
The Hundred
20 bridge
1 minute shadow boxing
Repeat 2 more times
End with 5-10 minutes stretching and/or yoga poses
