Workout with my weights and resistant bands, stretching my legs out with the band’s by doing several light moves, nothing crazy, nice & easy, lightweight & proven to help work the muscles better then doing squats or stretches alone.
My attempt at skipping for the first time in God knows how many years 😂 It took a few attempts but if you at first don’t succeed then try & try again 💪💃
Managed 20 skips before tripping up lol, it’s a fun workout for the whole body & my skipping rope has a timer fitted which tells me my calories & how many skips I did & only costs £4 😏
Just one weight & loads of little moves, you can add pretty much anything to a workout 💪🏋️♀️
Attempted this move which looks easy but it involves using your upper body strength to get yourself back up & pick up weights which is optional. Such a great move to build muscle, tone your upper body, have better balance & burn calories. Hard at first but just like with any move, the more you do the more you get better at it.
(10 reps x2)
When you haven’t got time to fit in exercise before of after work. Well you can do this which only takes 10 minutes a day.
* 5 moves in total
* 1 minute per move
* x2 reps = 10 minutes
What’s 10 minutes a day in the morning? Plus it makes you feel good about yourself & keeps you positive throughout the day.
Add 2 minutes or another rep & again it’s still under 20 minutes, with or without weights (before I had weights I used tins of beans, worked just the same) 💪🏋️♀️
Lil warm up before my “80 day obsession workout” total time this morning, 60 minutes.
With it being darker in the mornings it means I can’t go running at my normal 5am time as it’s pitch black so I’m doing alot more home workouts especially with winter only around the corner but theres still no excuse not to exercise, where’s there’s a will there’s a way, I may even take up evening running 🤔
I always loved morning runs because it’s quite, no one around, whole street and park to yourself, no traffic, no crazy drivers driving through pedestrian crossings as I always encounter, with the evenings I find the total opposite but my problem every winter has been stopping running and putting on weight, especially with the georgous mince pies going on sale however this year it will be different.
Why? Because I’m not going to stop exercising, yes I will indulge and enjoy but I will still train insane and make sure I continue to run, even if it’s later in the morning on weekends, running by far is my fav thing to do and my home workouts have been an example that you dont need to pay for the gym to lose weight, its okay if you enjoy going but for me I never did. So far I have lose 2 stone and dropped nearly 3 dress sizes all from home workouts, running, eating good (no fad diets) and it wasn’t fast results either, it has taken the duration of this year, the right way, not the way that these celebrities advertise dropping a dress size in a week, there’s no rush, enjoy every moment, indulge and celebrate coming this far.
