Beat the crankies with this exercise routine

Today was a productive, creative, fun-filled, mentally exhausting day at work. So exhausting that I took a nap when I got home, and I am not a good nap-taker.

I hit the pillow like a ton of bricks. Then the pitter-patter of little feet and an unusually loud-voiced 3-year-old woke me up about an hour later. I wasn’t ready to get out of bed, but who is? Sleeping is awesome.

I begrudging drug myself out of my goose down, pillow top and walked like the hunchback of Notre Dame to the nearest bathroom to see what kind of hot mess I’d become during my one-hour blackout. I felt awful and cranky.

Donnie wanted to go out to eat so I was forced to pull myself together. I did the best waker upper I could think of (no not jäger bomb shots-it’s frowned upon before a family dinner). I did my 5-minute workout. It’s literally 5 minutes and it really gets my blood flowing.

Step away from the computer for 5 minutes and try it (in this order):
50 jumping jacks
5 pushups
20 crunches
20 mountain climbers
30-second plank
7 burpees

Well? How do you feel? I feel great! Best I’ve felt all week. Let’s Buffalo Wild Wings it up!
