Ice Cream and Exercise

I know the title of my blog is contradictory!  Today is National Ice Cream Day.  Since ice cream is one of my family's favorite treats, we had to make sure that we made time in our day to get some.  We started the day at the pool.  It has been so hot here lately that the pool is not even a cool enough place to be!

After the pool, we went Coldstone Creamery.  I love the flavors and the mix-ins!  (You can see from the photo above that my girls love it too!)  My favorite is peanut butter cup perfection.  If you love chocolate and peanut butter, you must try it!

Later in the day it was time for me to exercise.  Let me preface this by saying I am not someone who exercises all of the time.  I know that I am supposed to, that it is good for me, etc.  Honestly, I usually do not have time during the school year to fit it into my schedule.  I try to do a better job in the summer.  I have found that my favorite workout is Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Level 1.  (There is a level 2 and 3, but I have found level 1 to be my favorite.)  Don't let the fact that it is level 1 fool you.  It is quite a workout!  The best part of this workout is that it only takes about 27 minutes from start to finish.  It is hard to make excuses when a workout is only this long!  It incorporates strength, cardio, and ab work.  You only need hand weights.  (I actually used cans of soup when I first tried it before I had weights!)  Give it a try.  I bet that you will love it!

What do you do to keep in shape?
