The Cupcake Workout - Seriously!

Confession: I ate a TON of cupcakes on Saturday. I was stressed,  working on a deadline and in perfect view of them sitting on the counter. I probably should have stopped after the first bite, but I kept eating because they tasted delicious. (If you are looking for a great chocolate cake recipe, check this one out!) Anyway, fast forward to Sunday -  I felt lethargic and icky. I wanted to get myself moving and sweat out some toxins.

That's where this "Cupcake Workout" came from. It is NOT intended to "work off" all of the calories I consumed. It's just a workout to get your body moving and break a sweat. After finishing the workout, I felt more energetic and less sluggish.


Complete 30 seconds of vigorous effort followed by a 15-second break for each of the exercises. You will complete THREE sets of the same exercise before moving to the next one on the list. For example, you will do 30 seconds of push-ups with a 15-second break for three sets before moving on to single-leg bridges.
