Wreck it Winter Workout

When its cold outside, No one wants to go for a run or brave the low temperatures in order to get inside a gym.  We are much more inclined to sitting at home bundled up in a thick blanket with hot chocolate and Netflix on the tv.  It is just so much easier to stay at home and let the winter pounds add up.  We are not going to the beach anytime soon, so what does it matter?  Bring on the poundage!  This is a recipe for disaster, especially after the holiday food binge marathon is still fresh on the belly.  Don’t let those stubborn fat cells entrench themselves any further.  You can get an awesome workout without a gym, equipment, or even leaving your house!
