Home for Thanksgiving Break!

Well good morning fitfam!

So I'm currently blogging from home-sweet-home! On a one week break from college to be with the fam for Thanksgiving break woot woot! 
Man it feels so nice to be home! I've missed my parents! I'm a big baby at heart :) And I need a nice break from classes phew stressing me out.
But once I get back, 2 more full weeks of classes, then finals week, and then 3 weeks off for Winter break! So unfair though, most colleges get a whole 4 weeks! We only get 3!
But I can't wait to celebrate the holidays, Christmas, New Years, my birthday (January 2), and then (uck) back to school by the 7th for a whole new semester with a new set of classes!

Anyway, just wanted to share with you all my workout plan for whenever I'm home for vacation, because I currently don't have a gym membership at home! I may get one over the summer, but there's no reason to now since I'll only be home for a month!

Here are a few things I do in my house or outside if it's nice enough!
(remember, the key is a good clean diet to see change!)

Nike Training Club app
Jogging/Incline walking/Elliptical
At home weights (5, 10, 15 pound dumbbells)
At home gym - leg extension, chest press and pec dec machine, cables
Yoga/Pilates/Stretching videos on Youtube
Jari Love Slim and Lean workout DVD
10 minute solutions workout DVDs
Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred DVD
Full body circuits (strength & cardio)

Yup! So even if you don't have access to a gym, there are still soooo many ways you can get your exercise in! Youtube is a fantastic way for this because you can basically search any exercise and there will be a video on it! You can still get fit without the gym! Just make sure you do have resistance training in there summer! Make your body work against something! 

If you don't have weights at home, here are some alternatives:
Duffle bags filled with clothes/textbooks
Soup cans
Text books

Be creative with your workouts!
I'll try to post any circuits that I come up with while I'm home this break so that you can all give them a go!


  1. I'm sorry you're having a ruff time lately. I know what it's like, I just created a blog the other day trying to motivate myself to do better. Feel free to check it out. Maybe my big screw up will make you feel better about your decisions. lol.
