Ok, so who tried the new EXTREME Abs Workout yesterday? All I can say is… WOW!! I thought I was going to die. And then, I turned around and did it a 2nd time just for kicks. Yes, I’m feeling the consequences today. But, as Cassey Ho says, “Sore today, Strong tomorrow!”
Any men out there brave enough to give it a try???
I wanted to get some cardio in, but since I got home so late from work yesterday evening, by the time I ate dinner and finished the Blogilates workout playlist, it was really too late to drive all the way to the gym for some cardio. So instead, I grabbed a dumbbell and…
Print this baby out and take her to the gym with you next time! Tell me what you think and how many sets you can get through. So far, I can only get through 2 sets before I’m totally dying.
The Importance of Eating Clean:
What are your favorite clean-eating meals? I like easy-to-make foods that I can just throw together quickly after I get home from work, because I try not to eat too late in the day. Sometimes, like yesterday evening with late home visits (I’m a social worker), it is unavoidable, which makes it even more important to eat healthy and clean. I won’t even go into the whole stress/cortisol weight gain issue that goes hand in hand with my field of work.
I don’t know how many times I have been pressed for time during my workday, so I drove up the street for a quick, cheap, fast-food taco plate to get me through the rest of my day. The trouble with that? All that greasy, processed food, while completely tasty, made me feel so tired, all I could think about was taking a nap. Then I’d still have to trudge through the rest of the day, sometimes making long, boring drives that made me even more tired. My waist-line kept growing, my energy levels kept draining. (Talk about a negative correlation!)
Now, I plan my meals in advance so I stick to the healthy stuff a whole lot better. I save money because I make my own food, so I’m not having to pay those high prices at restaurants or fast-food places, and I only buy what I need for the week when I do my grocery shopping. My new favorite invention: Ziploc steamer bags! Not to mention, I’m eating seriously delicious food, I get full on MUCH LESS food than I used to eat, and I don’t feel lethargic in the afternoons after lunch any more. Here is what I ate for lunch and dinner today, for example.
