Count Reps Not Calories

Written by: Kayte Corrigan

Thinking about working out, but just can’t get there? Thinking about that dinner later this week at the restaurant you’ve been dying to try? One doesn’t exactly cancel the other out, but you’ll feel better indulging when you know you put in your time. You felt the burn on your glutes, held your plank until the last second and laced up your sneakers one extra time this week. Take one more class that usual, grab a quick run or hop on your bike instead of worrying about caloric intake. You’re a health conscious decision maker, bottom line: wouldn’t you rather count reps than calories? Think about that the next time you’re about to abort the workout to order take-out. More activity, less worrying.
