It’s 2018 and everyone is shouting out their “New Year, New Me” resolutions. But let’s be honest. You probably came home from the bars last night around 4 a.m after forcing your Uber driver to stop at Taco Bell and decipher your slurred, incoherent order before you finally curled up to your cheesy fiesta potatoes in your jam-jams, just like you do every other weekend.
Getting to the gym is hard and paying for the gym is even worse. Memberships take more weight off your wallet than your waist. Luckily, I've collected 28 of the easiest, best workouts for us lazy folk into one full-body circuit that you can do at home. Seriously. No need to try and create the perfect messy bun, squeeze into an expensive “cute” gym outfit and pretend like you know what you’re doing at the gym.
We get it. Working out sucks. We would all rather eat doughnuts instead of listening to an all-too-peppy aerobics instructor who delivers empty lies by repeating “you’re almost done!” Which is why I’ve searched high and low for the best workout apps for women that don’t suck. I figure if my phone can find my friends, order pad thai, and deliver dog food to my door, it can also provide an at-home workout plan that actually works.
It’s not that I’m a picky eater, it’s just that I know what I like and what I won’t touch with a ten-foot pole under absolutely no circumstances whatsoever in my entire life. I might be over 21, but I love kid friendly meals. Pizza and mac-n-cheese are life and dinosaur shaped food inexplicably tastes better.
Back in the day, a diet was something you tried on January first because you felt guilty about the size on your clothes. A basic diet is all about avoiding everything you love and filling a meal plan with cardboard-like meals while pretending to enjoy plain water (or La Croix).
Over the years I’ve noticed that my body has slowed down a bit and I have to pay the price for those large cheese fries. This doesn’t mean I don’t eat the fries, it just means I have to compensate with a little clean eating on the other days and adding in a little workout.
