Home Cardio Workout

I have been going through my emails and have a ton of workout emails to go through. Since I haven’t been able to get to the gym much lately and work has been slow, I feel like quick home workouts are my best bet. This one from Popsugar Fitness looks nice and promising.   Warm…

Arms and Shoulders – 4/21/18

Yesterday, I journeyed back to the gym after what felt like a very long time. I’m feeling like I need to do some major work on my arms and shoulders to get ready for the warmer weather that’s popping up. 10 minute warm up on eliptical Rotating all these exercises for three sets of 15:…

Leg Day – 4/14/2018

I search for leg day and I see all these memes about how leg day is this person’s favorite. No thank you. Not for me. I dread leg day, although I know it’s important and it’s where a lot of my future content with my body lies. Maybe it’s because I’ve fallen out of it…

Chest – 3/12/2018

I’ve been very sporadic going to the gym. I went a few days a week ago to do shoulders, cardio and I did a yoga class on Monday. I was talking to a woman I met at yoga class and she was talking about how hard it is to get back into the weights part…

Arms & Cardio – 3/5/2018

Earlier this week, I went to the gym for about an hour of cardio on the elliptical. It felt pretty good until the end. I was so ready for it to be done. Even with an episode of The Crown on my phone, I was getting tired and ready to not be there anymore. I…

Shoulders on a Tuesday – 2/27/2018

I revisited this workout I posted nearly a year ago for shoulders and triceps. I went to the gym with my hub though and we wanted to get home before the baby had to go to sleep so the workout looks different than the one posted in April. And when we got home, the in…

Monday, 5/15 Leg Workout

After not visiting the gym in a long time, I finally made the trek there last night and did a leg workout. I’ll admit, it was not the best leg workout and I have plenty of excuses for why. But I will instead just focus on doing better next time. Legs: 10 minute warm up…

Sunday – Back Workout

On Saturday, I took my baby for a 2 mile walk after I finished at work. I didn’t follow the carb cycling at all as I said. Sunday, I went to the gym in the morning and did a back workout and did some interval running for 20 minutes. Here’s the back workout I did:…

Core Exercises for Diastasis Recti – Ab Separation

Exercises to repair separation of ab muscles. I thought I was at 2 finger widths apart around my belly button, but I checked again the other day and it seemed smaller. I’d been randomly doing vacuums, and I guess it helped. I’ll keep going with these exercises  from Melissa Bender to keep building up that…
