Week 4! I can hardly believe that I’ve been back in this workout thing for a month. Its really made me feel a whole lot better. My mind and concentration, even my energy is better than before. Not to mention, aside from feeling sore, I feel really great about myself.
WEDNESDAY: 15 MINS FULL-BODY WORKOUT by PopSugar Fitness
Also called Fast and Furious Calorie Burn (on Youtube). This workout is pretty intense. When life gets busy, I try to get these intense workout bursts to stay active. I’m slowly gathering a good little bit of these and I want to try new ones so that I can keep the workouts diversified bit by bit. The instructions are done really well so its easy to follow even if you are focusing on the moves and there’s demo before each one before moving to the reps for the move. At the end of this, it feels extremely hard to do for some moves.
I love this one a lot and I’ll probably head back to do this again to see how strength improves.
SATURDAY: DETOX YOGA & PURA VIDA
I needed to get some yoga in and since I was going to a arts and crafts show and going to taste some alcohol, I wanted to do a detox session before. This one is supposedly very good for hangovers and I can actually see it really working out for that. Its to help boost metabolism and I definitely felt like it got my blood flowing but also relaxing. Its a few moves and the sun salutation.
I followed this through with Pura Vida Workout from Tone it Up. Its one that I haven’t done in a long time. A full-body workout again. I didn’t quite feel it in my legs while I was working out but today (Sunday), when I woke up, its been reminding me how hard that workout was.
If you click the image, you’ll have the actual link with a video for this workout. Some of these are a little hard to understand from the description but its a pretty good workout. The dual movements covers the full-body. Spider Monkey Push-up is a pain to do.
FYI, I did 20 reps for first two moves while I did 10-15 reps for the last two. Completed 3 rounds.
I’m not hitting the 3 times a week nowadays. There’s just too much stuff to do. Still, this weekend, tracking my body transformation is starting to be motivating because I’m seeing better results this week. Thats my inspiration.
I’m totally back on track. Its great to see my body heading in the right direction. Its an amazing feeling to get back some of that feel-good element, reduce stress and start feeling more confident about myself (and my body). Loving it! 🙂
