I promised myself I would finish the rest of the DVD after I got home. Well, I am home now and that P90X legs DVD is not going to happen tonight. I am hopefully going to get up a bit earlier to finish it, also hoping that I add in an hour of cardio later in the day. I am trying to get the motivation to get back onto a routine. Especially after the cupcake making (and eating) weekend I just had. I will post the recipes to those cupcakes soon! In the meantime, you've gotta make this copy cat recipe for Cheesecake Factory potstickers.
Oh! Did you know, the Cheesecake Factory has a skinny menu. there are items below 590 calories. I love how menus are listing calories. That way it takes all the guess work out and add in a little guilt. Oh, that guilt - it does wonders.
Questions: What do you do to keep you motivated to workout? What type of workouts are your favorite?
