That's right! We've got a Full Body Workout for our Friday!! We are going to conquer one more Full Body routine for the week and go into the weekend looking and feeling fit. I hope you're ready because this routine is an awesome body blaster!! You'll need some weights today and again, start with 3 repetitions and work up to 4 or 5 if you're more advanced. And be sure to work in 30 minutes of active cardio before or after this circuit. Are you ready? Press play now!!
Have you found a workout buddy yet? Doing anything with someone you like always makes it more enjoyable. If you're less than fired up about getting in some exercise, find a friend or family member who you love to be around and ask them to be your workout buddy.
This helps in a couple ways, not only does it make working out more fun, but you have someone to help keep you accountable on those days when you don't want to get out of bed. If you have to be at the park at 6am to go running, you're far more likely to do so if you promised your friend you would be there. So, look around you and find someone who has similar interests and goals for health and fitness as you do. Then choose your workout of choice and schedule a date! Get started today!
We are into our final week people!! How exciting! You've been doing amazing so far and we are almost there. Your dedication and perseverance is awesome!
Today we have some abdominals to do. Let's work on chiseling some sleek and sexy abs with this circuit. Once again, I've upped the number of repetitions I'm recommending, so start with 3 and work up to 4 or 5 if you're more advanced. Grab your weights and let's get to it!
I love pesto. Seriously, I could put it on everything! Especially when I've got fresh basil growing in the garden :) It's packed with flavor and good fats, which so many of our bodies are craving. Here's a simple recipe for pesto. Give it a try today!
2 c. basil (loosely packed)
3 Tbsp pine nuts
1 Tbsp walnuts
2-4 garlic cloves
1⁄2 fresh lemon
1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Rinse and dry basil and peel garlic cloves. Put the greens in the food processor and pulse regularly until finely chopped. Add the garlic and nuts, and pulse some more. Squeeze the lemon in, then drizzle the olive oil in. Be sure to scrape the sides down with a spatula to make sure everything is mixing evenly. You may add more olive oil to get a thinner consistency. Scoop into a bowl and enjoy on top of any and everything!
It's Tone Up Tuesday people! This week is now in full swing, so let's get after our Full Body Workout. Put the work in NOW because at the end of our 30 Day Challenge you'll be so happy you did!!
Are you feeling faster, fitter, stronger? If you've been following me all month, I can only imagine how good you feel! It's amazing, how far you've come. Just think of all you have done in the last 21 days! So cool!
Let's go into the final stretch here, even stronger. Re-dedicate yourself to power out this last week of workouts, starting with this one right here!!
Ah yes, legs & booty. One of the most requested areas to workout and one of the more difficult to change. Legs & booty take time, consistency, and dedication. Their transformation will not happen overnight, as with most things. The exercises in this circuit are excellent for strengthening and reshaping your lower half. You've been doing so great with this challenge and we are almost there. Let's finish it with a bang!
You'll need your hand weights for this circuit. And I'm upping your repetitions of the circuit. Try to go for at least 3 repetitions (4-5 if you're more advanced) of the whole thing and then let me know how you're doing in the comments down below!! Let's do this!
Did you know there's a very simple way to reduce your chances of certain cancers, help prevent Type II diabetes, reduce high blood pressure AND boost your immune system? It's true! And that way is, to 'Eat the Rainbow'. By this I mean choosing fruits and vegetables of every color of the rainbow.
Regularly eating the rainbow of foods helps give your body the nutrients it needs. It helps get you fiber, vitamins and minerals, and powerful nutrients that can help ward off disease and illness.
So the next time you go to the grocery store, try to expand your selection of fruits and veggies and be guided by your eyes! Choose something from each color of the rainbow and then post a photo of your bounty here!
Alright, I hope you had a great weekend because we are back at it this Monday with a Full Body Workout! You are officially two-thirds of the way through our 30 Day Challenge. Congratulations!! You've done an amazing job so far. Let's celebrate by killing our Monday morning Full Body Workout! We can power this out and start the week with a bang. Grab your weights and let's get to it!
That's right! It's a Rest Day! Woohoo! Take this time to relax and do something nice for yourself. I often get carried away with the hustle and bustle of life, but it is also important to take some time to care for ME! Such a simple concept, right? Nonetheless, I know what it's like with the things that all of us take on in life: family, work, friends, volunteering, etc. With all our responsibilities, we often come in last on our 'To Do' list.
Today be sure to take some time to go for a walk, read a book, take a bath, or just call that good friend you've been meaning to catch up with. All of these things are good for your soul and re-energize your battery again. And I'm sure you're well aware, when we feel good, we take much better care of the other people in our lives. Take a break. Take care. Have some fun!
I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Here's our last workout of the week: Upper Body. Be sure to stretch for 5-10 minutes before you begin. Then, grab your weights and some water and let's work on chiseling those arms and shoulders!!
