Happy Labor Day! I hope you’re enjoying this day away from work, and if you are one of the few that finds yourself working, then my thoughts are with you!
Though, I can’t say anything myself since the day is just a normal run of the mill Monday for us. Luckily, I love what I do and don’t find it too labor intensive.
Did you find yourself indulging a bit more than normal over the weekend? Don’t you worry you’re not alone. In fact, did you know that Labor Day is the second largest cookout event of the year? Food for thought!
If you found yourself eating a bit off this weekend or you know you’ll be enjoying a bit more beer, burgers and chips later on today then that is all the motivation you need to do this workout.
It only takes 10 minutes, it’ll will get your heart rate up, burn off some calories and take away some of the guilt you might have from overindulging these past few days.
