Hello friends! Happy Valentines Day! Hope you all are well! We are doing good over here. So who still goes all out for Valentines day?! We don’t I will cook us a nice dinner and will just relax at home. But we do need to squeeze in a date night soon.
So today I wanted to talk about my workouts and what has been motivating me. I made a promise since last year that I would continue to be healthy and take care of my body. My biggest motivation is my kids. I want to be healthy for them, But also show them to be healthy for themselves. Since adding workouts and just being more aware of what I eat has really helped with my daily activities and my health. I turn 40 this year and I want to feel strong. Turning 40 isn’t scary to me, I’m proud. I also want to feel great and that motivates me to keep going.
My favorite workout is dancing. I love it so much and it actually works out your entire body with having fun. I would love to find a dance class to take a couple of times a month. But in the meantime I workout to the fitness Marshall on youtube. His videos are short and fun. Not to mention great songs. I workout to these videos 3 times a week. I put 25 minutes on my app and I get my cardio in. I do about 5 videos in a row. I love it and you feel the burn.
My newest workout is the Sweat app. This has been so good. I started off by taking on a 12 week challenge and I’m on week 5. I remember reading by 4 weeks you will see a difference, by week 8 friends and family will and by 12 everyone will notice. Well I can honestly say I see a difference. I’m so happy with my results. I feel stronger. If you aren’t familiar with what it is. It’s also known as BBG, Bikini body guide. It’s pretty popular out there on social media and let me tell you it works. What I love about this app is that you have different categories I’m on beginners. You can work out anywhere using this app. I’m giving a short look into this app over on my instagram if you want to take a look. The exercises are not easy at first even the beginners, But 4 weeks in almost 5 I’ve seen so much improvement. I can actually get the burpees done, LOL! Those were killers to me. I still haven’t lost lbs on the scale but inches for sure. My clothes are fitting me better or even bigger. So that’s a good sign. I gave up last year on the scale. I go by more on how I feel. My legs have never been this strong in my life. I was called chicken legs in grade school, LOL! But now I have muscle! I really recommend this App if you are looking for a good workout with convenience.
Well ladies that’s my motivation to good health. Till next post!
