Being a mom is truly a joy in my life. I know you feel the same joy and fulfillment as a mom being able to care for your kiddos.
I wouldn't trade it for the world, and nothing can bring smiles to my face like my sassy, silly, beautiful daughter.
That being said, I'm an exhausted mom.
My to-do list grows by day and running a household and growing website (yes, I'm talking about fitwirr.com, the blog you are reading right now!) is no joke.
For a health and fitness blogger, it's hard to openly admit but the truth is my life leaves me no time for myself or gym. Really.
I love gym workouts, and I long for those days I religiously went to the gym with my hubby and lifted weights while he spotted me.
Unfortunately, 15 minutes of commutes to and from the gym is time I don't have, and it's a luxury I can't afford right now.
What I can squeeze in every other day is a workout that tops 20 minutes including stretches and warm-up.
Thankfully, that's all I need (and all you need) to stay fit and keep unwanted fat off my body.
The workout I do tones you up in just 15 minutes a day and burns calories far more than other workouts out there.
In fact, if losing weight, burning fat and calories and getting leaner is your goal, I don't see any other workouts that bring as much value and effectiveness as the one I do.
It's a faster way to get in shape because it triggers the afterburn effect.
Without this effect, your workout is doomed average.
The afterburn effect sets your body to burn more calories after you workout by elevating your resting metabolic rate, and you can achieve this by elevating your workout intensity and keeping your rest time short.
By going from one exercise to another without much rest in between, your body is forced to perform without full recovery, allowing you to hit the maximum oxygen intake.
It's a heart rate pumping, out of breath workout, but if you can get through your 15 minutes, you set your body to burn additional calories for the next 24-48 hours.
