I've been following the blogilates beginner's work out calender this month and am now on day 5. I'm exercising to feel healthy and strong, I have also lost three pounds but that's not the main reason I exercise. It annoys me I have to justify why I am exercising with mí madre. People automatically assume if you exercise you are attempting to lose weight. I'm exercising because it is recommended that you exercise at least 30 mins a day because it reduces obesity and obesity related diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular problems, respiratory disorders and don't get me started on the link between physical and mental health. Endorphin's released during exercise help to boost your mood and motivation to do things during the day. There is a whole list of benefits for exercising, there are different types of exercise for different goals that you set. It's not all about losing weight.
Any who, rant over. I'm just enjoying exercising at the moment as I am starting to feel the benefits of being more active. Granted I need to eat a bit better (we can always improve) so I'm going to try and compile a list of student budget healthy food options. That's my next goal :)
A lot of this weeks workouts have been about the legs and butt, and today was no different. I've basically tried to go hard core today and am sore already.
Today I did the Power Vinyasa Sun Salutations B video by Sarah Beth (go check her out she's fantastic)
I also did a dancer leg work out I found on pinterest, friggin sore!
Then a butt work out by Blogilates, and my goodness I don't think I'll bet able to get out of my chair after that!
Definitely will be worth it. Give it a try.
Here is the dancer legs work out
WARNING! VERY SORE, DO AT YOUR OWN RISK! lol
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
