^^I recite this quote to myself when I’m “too busy” to exercise
Capris & top Marshall’s // Shoes Tj Maxx // Gloves Marshall’s // White hoodie Costco
I get pretty much ALL of my workout gear from either Marshall’s, TJ Maxx or Ross, ha ha, they just have the BEST stuff for way cheap, I also love Target (then again who doesn’t!) I though I’d share my current workout routine with you guys today. Sorry about some of these pictures, but seriously, it’s hard to get a good photo at the gym, there aren’t many photographers ready on stand by to take your picture ha ha. So I just set up a timer and took some myself.
Now I don’t workout EVERY SINGLE day, but I do try to be active in one way or another in whatever way I can. Whether it’s doing crunches while watching Kylie play around on the floor, or choosing a far away parking spot so I have to walk. But when I do make it to the gym, this has been what I do, give or take a few alterations depending on the day & my mood. (I have to make sure I’m having FUN, or I know that I’ll slip into not going at all).
Legs—My gym doesn’t have a good leg press machine, so I make one out of the bench press he he. Like you see in the 2nd to last pic, just get a mat and lay it under the bar. And it’s really not as hard as you’d think to keep in control of the bar with your feet. But still, have a friend spot you if possible. *I also use this to work my calves.
>>>I do 100 lunges with a medicine ball. 100 walking or 50 for each leg standing in one place.
Arms —My triceps are 1st priority for me…so I don’t get flabby arms. I alternate between free weights & any other machines that work the triceps. Planks are also good for firming up. * I also do a variety of different arm workouts. Free weights are my favorite for deltoids, biceps, chest. And The I love the lateral pull down machine.
Abs—I do 300 crunches total (25 of a variety of different kinds). If this is a lot, take you’re time to work up to it.
Cardio—If I run, I run outside. I hate treadmills, I feel like a mindless hamster stuck in a wheel, or a vegetable minded robot, so props if you can enjoy it. But if it’s too cold, or too hot outside I’ll do something like Tae Bo or P90x.
Yoga/Stretches—I always do some sort of stretching every day! Yoga is my favorite, but sometimes I can’t get into the mindset for it (usually when I’m interrupted by a baby I don’t do something as fluid as yoga).
***A good workout mix is vital (in my opinion). I change up my playlist, but currently this is the one I’m loving. Don’t laugh or judge at some of these, I LIKE them (only while working out for some reason) 🙂
