Fitness Is Like A Relationship

When I looked to see what I was working out to today. I was trying to think of something else I could do. Do you ever do that? Cardio is not my favorite all the time. As I get older I seem to breathe harder but that all comes with it right? I have to say I think the only reason my husband and I work out everyday is thanks to the products we are on. I love how the gel makes me feel. When people come up to me and tell me how their moods are better, they have more energy, they sleep better, & so much more. That makes me so happy. I’m just glad to help people feel better that’s my job. 🙂

So today knowing I was going to do cardio I did 2 pumps of gel it helps with muscle growth too. I can definitely tell when I don’t use it. I have to say I was telling my husband the other day I have no problems getting out of bed in the mornings I feel great!

I decided to do the Cardio just because its a challenge and I don’t like to lose. So I did it and in my video you will see music is loud because I was breathing hard so I just turned up the music.lol. It was a great workout I love fitting into any pair of jeans I have in my drawer. Some I like better than others but it sometimes I have that fear will I get those on? The answer is yes every time. Thank goodness or I wouldn’t be doing my job right. I hope you enjoy the video I love putting them on.

CARDIO


IT’S NOT A COFFEE BREAK

Don’t just sit and drink coffee. Best thing is the earlier I get my workout done the better off Iam to do it and get it done.

Today was Cardio it never gets easier sorry to tell you that. But as I get older it gets tougher..lol.. Some Days are not so bad. Today was not bad as long as I can keep my breathing under control. All in all it was great workout and burned some calories & fat. It was just 30 minutes but man it is one of the hardest cardio workouts I do. I’ve done it several times but it don’t ever get any easier but I guess that is what keeps getting me to go back and do it again. 🙂 I feel cardio no matter how you do it is good for the heart & get the blood circulating.

I just did a quick cardio video today. My husband and I decided to fast so it should be an interesting day. We’ll see who gives in first. 🙂 No doubt it will probably be me. You go through those hunger pains for awhile then they finally just go away. Oh yes they will come back drink more water.

Following others that have fasted to see how long they can go without eating inspires me. All the changes they go through with the detoxing, more energy, think better, healing of the body & so much more. I can at least do 24 hours or more. I don’t suggest working out like I did and doing it the way we are. Its something you should prepare yourself to do.

Sometimes You Just Have One Of Those Days.

I’m still in the mood to workout. But sometimes I don’t feel like talking all the way through. Getting closer to the holidays. I feel sometimes my husband and I are the only ones for miles. Yes we have the ones that have to drive by to check pastures and so on. But missing my family as I’m sure everyone that can’t see there’s feel the same way.

After talking to our accountant yesterday hearing that she can’t even talk to her mom that is in a home because her mom has Dementia. At my mom can still talk to me on the phone and I’m Thankful for that.

Hopefully soon will be able to talk to my family in person. I look forward to that.

It’s Monday & I Got Dizzy

Working out is my therapy. It just makes me feel better. But sometimes when I get up to fast I get dizzy. But I made it through another great workout.

Hope you enjoy this. I just do a little of everything. There’s something about after I do a workout I can work around the house all day.

Warm-Up first just make sure your legs and everything are warmed up Round 1- 2 times through everything Squat & press with the weight I used a 6 Football runs in place Round 2 2 times through again Hold 1 weight sink move leg in circle for 60 seconds (I used a 10) Hold both weights with a slider do 2 pulses back Round 3 2 times through Lunge row curl row one time then 2 times with a knee up Grab a loop yellow, green or blue and do a twist Round 4 2 times through Sumo Squats for 30 seconds then jump for 30 seconds Take the loop under foot and do a hip lunge Bonus Chest press with leg drops Tricep kick backs in plank ( I went on my knees.)


SOMETIMES A WORKOUT IS ALL THE THERAPY YOU NEED.

So I got the step out again. I really feel it even if it is only like for 20 minutes. I’ll continue to do other workouts too! But this is something different. I feel it works the arms, legs & core plus I’m getting my cardio in.

I’m no professional just got keep moving or we will all end up stiff & not good. Don’t be a couch potato.lol You can move slower you don’t need to move fast & you can do some of a workout and each day maybe go a little further.

Working out truly motivates me it takes my mind off of all the bad going on. It relieves the stress. I truly believe it is the best therapy for me. I don’t like to watch TV all day that is just a waste of the day. Actually the tv usually don’t come on till my husband comes in at night. I will listen to music sometimes or health videos. I’m all about what can make the body feel better.:) I love reading about healthy lifestyles. I like listening to certain doctors that are eating the way I Am.

For now to get me through everyday until I can’t I’m going to keep working out. I feel like it helps in so many ways. Have a Happy Saturday!


LEG BURN OUT DAY!

One thing to do a leg day but I thought I had to go one step further and do a step workout too!

It’s all fun as you notice on the step workout I was fast and then slow in a lot of places. I like doing the step workout it’s just a lot of cardio.

Get Your Board Out Lets Have Fun!

So today I did Pilates and I struggle a little on it so I didn’t video it. Took some pictures though. After Pilates today I decided to keep going and get my board out man do I feel it in the back of my legs.

I did video workout on the board but I didn’t talk on it. Just have fun moving and burning calories. Every little bit helps.

Working out along with healthy eating works best for me. I have to watch what I eat. My husband on the other hand don’t have to he can eat, & eat and still stay the same. Some people are lucky like that. Or are they? Have to wonder when people can eat whatever they want and not gain how hard is that on them? Is that clogging your veins when you can eat sugar, and bags of chips? I’m just curious about that.

Eating healthy you’d think would get boring but it don’t when you can feel your abs every morning going oh ya..:) I have worked hard for that.

At age 56 I’m glad to know that my arms are solid & everything feels tight. But I definitely work hard at it. Just have to keep moving.
