This is what i do when i have snoozed the alarm clock one too many times and i know i will get stuck in the morning rush-hour if i carry out a longer routine.
Other than her comments are a bit too much sometimes, the routine is great and quite challenging.
Total Body Toning for Beginners | Pilates Bootcamp With Cassey Ho
I did snooze, i did find excuses to sleep in a little longer, but in the end, i was brave enough to face the September morning cold and to fight the numbness in my body. Yes, it is hard, but if it were easy, everybody would do it.
I guess i kinda wished today were Thursday and not Wednesday, and that is why i did the Thursday Workout ;) Actually, i was curious to see whether it will be easier this time, as last time the butt&thigh left me with pain… in one thigh. Worried that i might have not done the workout properly last time, this time i started with the other side.
I admit that during the 2 difficult moves, i took small breaks – however, i would not have been able to complete the exercise otherwise. Hopefully, next time ( or the time after that) i will be able to go through it without feeling the need (or the tremor) to stop :)
And yes, this time, i can feel my buns. Yey.
I bragged to a colleague/friend that i can already do 6 push-ups (normal, not girly). He insisted i show him, to make sure i do them right. So yes, i did a push up on the balcony, at the office today.
Yes, i think i like my work buddies.
I hate doing cardio, but i know i have to start incorporating it into my workout routine….. so i started light :)
P.S. The above video already includes a warm-up, but i did some 5 minutes before just in case. Will know next time!
Okay, so while continuing with the challenge of the morning workout, it gets more and more interesting as it gets colder and a bit darker every day at 6 a.m… but i am not backing down. After all, a healthy mind in a healthy body, right?
Here is my Thursday routine, with great videos from FitnessBlender . Plenty to choose from, depending on the fitness level and ones preferences.
So here it is, Thursday, day 4:
Butt and Thighs Workout
Having forgot to separate the deciding from the doing – as depicted in the great article from Raptitude – i also seem to have forgotten to separate the deciding from everything else( the overthinking, the challenging the decision, the finding of excuses). So in the end, i did not continue with day 2 of the challenge, telling myself that i would do the challenge every other day. After all, it was already 8:35 pm, i had no energy, i was hungry and i wanted to eat, and then be in bed by the 22:00 pm bed time… And i had worked out for 40 minutes in the morning, so that should count for something, right?
No. I am plain lazy.
