So far so good. My restart on the New Year has been going excellent. I haven’t had any problems getting up and getting in a workout in the mornings, I’ve been entering in all my stuff in My Fitness Pal and we’ve eaten at home every night this week … granted, it’s only Wednesday. So I would call that a success of sorts. Yes?
I’ve been focusing on three things in my workouts.
1) Cardio. In the form of T25. T25 is a no brainer. It’s 25 minutes of running, kicking, jumping that gets my heart rate up way high, integrates strength exercises into the mix and did I mention it’s only 25 minutes. That’s the best part.
2) My bum. In the form of “The Perfect Bum” series that I found on Amazon Prime for free. I am so very glad that I found this workout on Amazon Prime. It is awesome. It’s Pilates based, so I feel like I am getting a really good core/bum workout and can already notice some changes happening in my posture and my bum. Yes!
3) Arms. I have been neglecting my arms. So in between my cardio and my “Bum” workout I do three sets of 4 arm exercises, 10 reps each. I have been switching the types and sequences every day to keep it from getting old and moldy. I refer to my umpteen Pinterest arm exercise pins for inspiration.
All three of those things equals a full hour of exercise, and it feels mighty good.
Obviously omitted from the equation is running. I’m going to get to that. I swear I am. I have to. I have to do a 10K in 5 weeks. I’ll get there.
How about you … Are you staying motivated to work out?
