~ 3 days of toning (weights/resistance bands/or body weight)
~ 2 days of stretching/yoga (besides warm ups cool downs)
~ 2 –3 days cardio
~ 1 day adding something for a stubborn area – legs/butt/abs
I haven’t done an update in a few weeks. Mostly because it was more of the same. 30 minutes of this – 30 minutes of that - but I hit a bit of a rut last week so I thought posting might get me out of it.
I took a few days off 2 weeks ago to go on a on a mini vaca at the beach. I walked a lot so I figured that was exercise right? It was – but coming back and doing a *real* workout was super hard for me for some reason. It’s like I lost months of momentum and couldn’t make it through 15 minutes without wishing for it all to end. lol
I managed to get back into a routine and it’s getting better but my former enthusiasm is lacking. It could also be because the weather is warmer. I hate working out when it’s hot!
Problem #2 – I’m not getting enough stretching in and my body is becoming less flexible since I started rather than more. I’m getting stronger so yay! but my goal as I age is stay flexible. I had originally tried to get a yoga/stretch day in once or twice a week but that wasn’t working so I started adding a 15-30 minutes stretch or yoga routine every night. It’s helping so hopefully I can stick to it.
So that was more than you care to know but it felt good getting it out of my system! hehe
