I love waking up in the morning and feeling my thighs burn… I have finally started working out again. This time I am taking a different approach. I was going to join a local gym because the classes are always appealing to me, but we are also trying to save more money. So I have decided to try my man’s approach and invest in a “home-gym.”
It feels like a bit of a sacrifice because I have belonged to a gym for years, but I also think this will be a good time-saver because we will cut out the travel time to and from the gym & I will never have to wait in line for a shower or bother with towel service or the hassle of forgetting anything. Overall it feels like a win!
Workout of the Day: Kettle-bell circuit & Spinning
- Kettle-bell lunge and twist (10 times both sides)
- Kettle-bell squat and press (10 both sides)
- Kettle-bell swings (15)
- Halos (10)
- Chops (10 both sides)
- 10 straight leg lifts on the Captain’s Chair
- 20 Sit-ups
*Repeat this circuit twice!!!
- Ride stationary bike for 45 minutes
- Change the resistance every song!
This was a great workout to get me going again. My goal this time around is to establish and maintain a good, consistent habit. I had initially planned on completing 3 circuits, but I decided to stop after 2 because I wanted to have enough energy for spinning.
*Always listen to your body and don’t overdo your workouts. Especially when you are just starting out!
Word of the Day:
- be enrolled at a college or university.
How is the month of October treating you so far? Have you settled into your groove for the fall? I can tell that this is going to be a good month. September was a non-stop whirlwind and October seems to be filled with an orderly chaos now that school has officially started. After only one week of classes, I already had to start playing catch-up. I just want to stick with this program, learn the fundamentals, and come out being more educated than I was going in.
Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers! I have a long road ahead of me 🙂
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
