Workout and Word of the Day: #55

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I want to thank you for joining me for another workout and word of the day!!!  Writing these posts have helped to hold me accountable and that is more valuable than anything I could ever ask for.

This time around I wanted to start my weight-loss journey and really embrace it as a sustainable way of life.  I had little bouts of weight-loss success in the past, but it never lasted because it was an unrealistic quick fix.

I had success in the past with personal training and preparing for an event, but that broke my bank and the biggest thing it did was help me with consistency.

For years I belonged to a gym or a swim team and that helped me because the classes are so much fun and there is a social element to working out at a gym.  Nearly a year ago we decided to “break up with our gyms” and create a home gym to save money.

I think that this is the longest I have ever gone without having a gym and I honestly think that (for where I am at right now) I work harder at home.  When I was at my heaviest, I started to feel so self-conscious and didn’t want to work out around other people.  Working out at home has given me the space to be free and completely me ❤

I am not knocking gyms, health clubs, personal training, or cross-fit; I just want to prove to myself that I can lose weight and get healthy without spending an exorbitant amount of money.

Workout of the Day: Jazz Fit Warm-up + 6 Pack Abs + 40 Minute Silent but Deadly workout

Yesterday we were fairly busy throughout the day and I kept putting off the workout.  Before I knew it is was 10 pm, but I didn’t want to skip!

This Jazz Fit Warm-up was a lot of fun and can probably work with any upbeat music.  Enjoy!!!

I worked up a sweat with this 6 minute ab workout!!!

I got in trouble for making too much noise so I sought out an apartment friendly workout 😉  NO EXCUSES MY FRIENDS!!!

40 Minute Silent, but Deadly: There were a lot of fun and creative moves in this workout!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
