Last week was pure Blogilates magic.
It kicked my a$$.
I chose 4 different routines from Blogilates.com.
And one day of using Tone It Up’s Excited For Spring cardio routine because I was celebrating my last gym day and wanted to take advantage of the plethora of cardio machines.
There are times my forearms have difficulty with plank-y exercises so I had difficulty with some of the moves in the upper body and core routines. It all started with Downward Dog in Yoga class over a year ago. I don’t know what happened but it happened over time and I’ve had pain in the tendons above the wrist (inner side) ever since. I find ways to modify but they may not be completely safe ways for everyone so I won’t mention them.
This week I’m back to a mash-up between Tone It Up and Blogilates. My problem is that there are so many routines I want to try and I hate waiting to try them. I want to do them all at once! But that would so totally not work. So I choose the routines that I most want to try even if they’re not all from the same site. If you haven’t guessed it, Tone It Up and Blogilates are my favorite fitness sites.
Here’s what I’ll be doing this week:
Cardio: Food Baby HIIT Workout
Lower Body: Thigh Trimmer and Butt Lifter
Upper Body: Pura Vida
Core: Sleek and Slender Abs
This last routine I’ve stuck in because I want some extra arm work. Also the additional core work it has just looks too fun to pass up. I may or may not do the recommended # of sets considering I do have the other arms and core routines.
Extra Upper Body/Core: Love Your Arms & Abs
I need to measure myself. My belly is feeling and looking bigger than usual. Full and solid and fat. I’m thinking it’s my diet but I’m not sure if that’s all it is or if it’s connected to my exercise as well. My decreased cardio I mean, not the routines I’m doing now.
Can beans make someone fatter even if you only eat, like, ¼ cup a day? I’ve finally found a great source of fiber. I’d hate to have to give it up because it’s blowing my gut up. I feel like the Pillsbury Dough Girl.
What’s your favorite food for fiber?
