some days we all just need a little motivation.
I have been working out now for almost 4 weeks (on Thursday). I've only taken 2 days off becuase we had a family Christmas although my workout those days was swimming and chasing Cullen around a hotel ;) Some days I don't do vigorous workouts, such as Sunday my workout that day was pushing Cullen around in a stroller at the mall for two hours.
I try to workout different muscle groups every day so certain muscles have at least a little rest to recooperate.
AND I love waking up sore, it reminds me that pushing myself the day before was worth it.
Hard to read but I think I'm going to try this workout today!
I am always looking on pinterest for new exercises/workouts to try! I also get Shape and Fitness magazine so I tear out pages in those magazines of workouts I want to do. Finding new workouts is a huge motivation for me, I like to try to challenge myself.
Yesterday I was telling B I did wall planks for the first time and how holding it for a minute was incredibly hard. He told me to try walking up and down the wall while holding plank. I am going to attempt it today.
For me working out has become an addiction! As soon as Cullen is down for his nap I put on my shoes and head downstairs to work out anywhere from 60-90 minutes.
I still drink my lemon water every morning.
I love it.
To start my workouts I either walk at a steep incline at a mooderate rate or I jog at a slight incline for 30 minutes. I do this every day. I used to love running before I got pregnant and I would run 3-4 miles a day. I'm working my way back up to that.
Do you use any apps to help keep you on track or for workouts?
Something I know I need to work on, eating fruit.
I love veggies and eat them throughout the day but I never eat fruit. Planning to head to the store this evening so I'm going to grab some....I think ;) Pretty sure I sway away from fruit because of all the sugar and carbs even though I know it's good for me.
That's all I've got for today!
Planning to work on a HUGE post of Culley clothes!I'm off to have story time with my sweet, smiley Culley. He just loves books these days!
