My Last Thoughts On the July Workout Calendar, and This Week’s Workouts

My Last Thoughts on the July Workout Calendar:

Can you believe we are already down to the last week of the July workout calendar?  I feel like it was just last week I was talking about my first thoughts on it.  So what do I think about the calendar now that we’re almost done with it?

Let’s just say, I hope next month is not too different from this one!  I feel like the way each day’s workouts were set up this month really maximized the results.  I can definitely see results from the beginning to the end of this month.  Not to mention I’m down to 148.4 lbs as of today!  That is nearly 3 lbs down in just one week.

I was telling some people the other day that I can’t believe how easy it has been so far to lose weight and see the results I want to see in such a short amount of time.  Especially after trying so hard for years and years without seeing any results at all.

Booty Blast Sunday Workout:

I have to say, I’m really excited about this workout, because this is my very first time ever to do the Beyonce Bootylicious Bum Butt Badonkadonk Bonanza (try saying that 3 times fast)!  I always like the Booty Blast days, because this is one of those areas I think most of us like toning up.

Legs & Thighs Monday Workout:

Now that our butts are thoroughly worked, it’s time to work out those legs and thighs.  You can’t have one without the other, right?  And of course, the video I’m most looking forward to in Monday’s workout is the Thigh Trimmer & Butt Lifter.  I always like the workouts with the Pilates equipment (resistance bands, power ring, etc.) just a little bit more than the regular workouts.

Hard Core Tuesday Workout:

I hope we have a Hard Core day in the August calendar next month…  Or at least something like it.  These were probably my favorite workout days, and this last one probably takes the proverbial cake.  Look at all these muffin-top targeting workouts!  Yep, that’s what I need to work on the most, in my own opinion.  I really can’t even pick one that I look forward to doing the most, because they’re all really goods ones for this day.

Upper Bod Wednesday Workout:

Ahhh, the arms.  My arms are always crying at the end of these hour-long workouts!  But these are so good, my favorites for this day are between Victoria Secret Angel Arm Slimming Workout , which really gets you working and pushing yourself, and the Push Plank Challenge that starts out feeling so simple and then by the end of it you’re wondering when they’re ever going to stop.

Cardio Core Thursday Workout:

I just can’t even believe it’s the LAST workout of our #ForceofJuly calendar.  But we’re sending it out in style with these fat-burning and ab-toning workouts.  Hands down, my favorite video in today’s workout is The 5 Best & Most Effective Ab Exercises.  How about that Saturn Ring exercise?

 

So if you’re doing these Blogilates workout calendar workouts, what were your thoughts on the July Calendar?  How many of the workouts did you do each week?  What results have you seen?  I’m just more and more amazed at how much I love these workouts and how much I truly want to keep sticking with them.  Even when things come up in life that would normally derail me and all my progress, I’ve still been able to stick with it and keep seeing the results.

Working Out This Week

Hey guys!  Sorry I missed posting yesterday.  I actually missed everything yesterday, workout and all.  😦  Let’s just say I have some pretty serious stuff going on in my family at the moment that all sort of exploded the past couple of days.  But today, I had to jump right back on the Blogilates wagon.  So I’m going to do something a little different for today’s post, because I know things might be a little hit or miss for the next week or so.

Hard Core Tuesday Workout:

My favorite of these 5 video’s for Tuesday’s workout this week would have to be…  The 5 Minute Ab Express!  Since I missed this whole workout yesterday, I will probably try to do it on Friday this week and use yesterday as my day of rest.  I’m pretty sure being severely stressed out burns extra calories, because I still weighed a little less this morning than I did yesterday, despite missing my workout.

Upper Bod Wednesday Workout:

Today’s workout was pretty intense, especially once I got to the last couple videos and my arms wee really getting tired.  I’d have to say my favorite workout video for today was probably Toned Arms and Sculpted Back.  To be honest, I’m not too sure if it wasn’t because it was such a relief to sit or lay on the mat for this workout because I’m still so exhausted today.

Cardio Core Thursday Workout:

I’m excited for Thursday’s workout this week because it’s really focusing on the “love handles” with a couple of the workouts.  My favorite video for this day, definitely Love Handles Hysteria.  My least favorite, and probably my least fave of all the Blogilates workout videos…  “Hot Summer” POP Cardio Dance Workout.  Not because I don’t like the moves or the song, but because I don’t really keep up with the moves very well.  Plus, I feel like it kind of drags out a little too much.  I usually substitute this video for a different cardio video for about the same length of time instead.

Bendable Body Friday Workout:

How about a nice relaxing stretch video to get your Bendable Body/Rest day in?  I keep saying this, but I really hope Cassey comes out with some new stretch videos for these days.  This month’s secret workout video on the Blogilates App is an AMAZING video, so relaxing and energizing.  It would be perfect to add to the list for our Friday videos… alas, it’s exclusive only to monthly calendar subscribers (which is only $0.99 a month, really not much at all).  At any rate, I should be doing Tuesday’s workout on this day since I missed it on Tuesday, as I of course mentioned previously.

Sexy Saturday Workout:

I know it’s crazy, but my favorite workout for this Saturday is the 100 Burpee Burnout!  Burpees have seriously shaped and toned my legs and have really helped me shave inches off of them.  Some of the more intense ones, I can’t really do (like the ones with the one-handed push-ups), so on those I just do a regular burpee during that set.  It’s still one heck of a workout.

So please let me know about how your workouts are going this week!  I will still try to get on every day and post as usual, but at least this way I’ve got the playlists posted up for anyone that likes using them.  I also have all the Playlists saved on my YouTube channel, which are accessed most easily through the link in the menu at the top of my page here titled “Daily Workout Playlists.”
