Every December, I make a long list of New Year’s resolutions that have a habit of falling apart by January 2nd. So, this year, I decided to set more achievable goals! Instead of…TWO hours of exercise every day, I decided on 30 minutes 3 times a week. Rather than saying no carbs for the rest of my life, I set the goalpost to tweak my weekly menu, substituting a double serving of veggies for pasta/rice/bread for dinner. And, so far, I’m happy to report that my bite-size goals have helped me stay on track!
Those of you who have read my blog for any length of time have heard me gripe about exercise. I know it’s necessary for my health and well-being, but why must it be oh-so-painful?! Nevertheless, through some tears (not ones of joy), I dusted off my Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and began my 2014 workout regime, complete with a Fitbit to keep track of my progress.
After hearing Jillian bark, “Pain is weakness leaving the body” one too many times, I decided to mute the DVD and blast my iTunes instead. I’m not sure why it took me three years to come up with this idea; but, it’s definitely made my workouts much more enjoyable! Apparently, I’m not the only one who is motivated by music. Studies have shown that music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by as much as 15%.
As a stay-at-home mom whose gym is otherwise known as home, I crank up the music on my iPhone while I workout. Not only do I enjoy it, but my five year old very gleefully jumps alongside me. For me, there is really no reason for earphones – it would just mean having to pop them out every five seconds to hear what my daughter is asking me. 🙂
But, for most people, earphones are the ONLY way they can listen to music while they work out! And, unfortunately, one of the biggest complaints is the lack of earphones that fit the contours of your ear and don’t fall out during active use. Enter: yurbuds, the #1 selling sport earphone company in the United States! Founded in 2008 by an Ironman Triathlete and a 24-time marathoner, their products are ergonomically designed for comfort and exceptional fit, while providing best-in-class audio quality and durability.
