February – Week 2
2 weeks down, only 2 and a couple days to go! Woohoo! We’re halfway there people! Keep up all the hard work!
2/7/16 Booty Time:
- Quick Cardio Warm Up – 5 min
- 3 Minute Butt Shaper – 3 min
- Lower Abs & Booty Blast – 10 min
- Natural Butt Lift – 4 min
- The Bold & the Bootiful Workout – 8 min
Oh my goodness. My hips died afterwards. It was such a good day for my butt though. Really really good.
2/8/16 Strong Arms:
Missed. Spirits were low. Too low. The end of the day was the best part. My dad suggested I go outside to do my last yoga challenge because there wasn’t any room indoors. When you’re tall, you need a lot of room for the full body length floor poses. I generally like being tall and I don’t even mind towering over people when I wear heels now. But there’s just not enough room in this house for me to get into full body length floor poses.
2/9/16 Cardio Core:
Missed again. Today and yesterday I was feeling super depressed. Stress finally got to me.
2/10/16 Luscious Legs:
And my own addition of 3 minutes of standing hip and thigh exercises. Still depressed. Still stressed. But at least I pushed myself to do something of exercise today (and my hips did get tired at least) along with some adult chores.
It was sunny and hot in the sun today. I wanted to stay outside and lie on my mat and I was doing so when a bee decided it liked my bright blue leggings. Either that or my sweat smelled sweet. Maybe a combination of both. It landed on my hands and kept walking around on me.
I forced myself to stay still and had to mentally remind myself that a bee wasn’t like a wasp and it wouldn’t sting me unless it felt itself in danger. Needless to say the moment the bee flew off of me, I packed up my stuff and went back inside. From the way the bee was circling back to me, I’d say it had been intending to land on me again.
2/11/16 HIIT Me Up!:
Missed. Couldn’t attribute this skip to stress. My personal cloud had lifted and I was happy. I got busy with other stuff and forgot. Then, because I don’t like HIIT all that much, I forgot for the rest of the night and instead spent the time with my son. I did my yoga/pilates challenges though. That was fun.
2/12/16 Relax + Refresh:
I missed the stretching workouts for this day, but since it was a day for resting, that’s not a big deal…right? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
2/13/16 Total Body Torture:
- Quiet Cardio Shhhh! – 5 min
- Swimsuit Slimdown: 8 Min Bikini Body Workout – 8 min
- Spring Leaning Slimdown – 8 min
- Walking – 30 min 1.5 miles
OMG. I wish I hadn’t skipped so many days this week. Although, I skipped out on 2 of the 5 videos for today, I got a great workout in. I was huffin’ and puffin’ and wishing I hadn’t been so lazy and eaten all that junk food this week.
This week didn’t turn out so well. I didn’t reach my goal of exercising 5-6 days a week but at least I got the bare minimum in. Life is super stressful right now and there’s not much I can do to change it. That’s what finally got to me. A lack of control and having to watch others be unhappy. Here’s hoping for a better time next week!
