This was one of the most asked questions I received from my survey several months ago.
What does my exercise regimen look like?
Last week, I tried to document my workouts to share with you.
Monday-I hit up my favorite workout class. This class is a core and weights type of workout. I forgot to take a picture, so I used one from the week before. :)
Tuesday-I went for a quick run before getting the kiddos up for school. This is not my norm. I usually go to a cardio class at the gym on Wednesdays and this particular week I couldn't go Wednesday. I fit in a little run on Tuesday instead.
Wednesday-I did absolutely NOTHING physically active. #keepinitreal
Thursday-One of my favorite ways to work out at home is with a video. I'm one of those people who doesn't like spending too much time during a workout. The quicker, the better! At home, I start thinking about doing a load of laundry or emptying the dishwasher instead of finishing my sets of squats. So-videos with an instructor telling me what to do is the way for me to go! Lately, I've been working out to Jillian Michaels' videos. I put it on my computer while I have this on the television...
That's killing two birds with one stone! haha! The show helps keep my mind off of my inability to breathe. #winwin
Friday-I forgot a picture, but I met a friend and we went for a long walk.
On the weekends, I'm kind of hit or miss. If I haven't done much during the week, then I'll make it happen on the weekend. My go-to weekend workout is a Pinterest workout or a video.
A couple things...
*I'm not a fitness guru by any means.
*I have some weeks I'm a rockstar with my work outs and other weeks I hardly get to the gym.
*I give myself a lot of grace-it's more about being healthy and active.
*I want my kiddos to see a mom who's healthy. That's my goal!
*I think it's important to find things we enjoy (that keep us moving) and do those! I tend to get bored doing the same thing over and over. My classes at the gym help with that...the instructor is always changing it up so I never know what's coming.
*My goal is 4-5 days a week do something physically active.
*I think every stage of life is different-right now at this stage I fit work outs in when I can while staying at home with Bowen, carpooling, shuttling kids to different activities, and working from home. When all my kiddos are in school, I'm sure I'll spend more days at the gym, but for now-this is my schedule.
What about you? What do you do to stay healthy?
Today, I'm off to the gym. Gotta get movin'!
