Hey guys! No, I did not forget about posting! Today I decided to post about fitness. I have heard many people complain about doing cardio. All I constantly hear are complaints about having to run. Most believe that running is one of the only ways to burn calories, including the elliptical, stair master and the bicycle. Truth is you don't have to go on a machine to get some cardio in! Here i'll suggest some alternatives to help burn calories without using a machine!
"If you're not struggling, you're not working hard enough." This quote means so much and it's true. Remember that English teacher that always went deep into the meaning of a quote? I need you guys to be that teacher right now! This is my mantra for working out. A mantra is a motivational quote. Go out and find your quote and use it to stay motivated.Now, here I have some 30 Day Ab Challenges that I want you guys to try. One is from Blogilates and the other from 30dayfitnesschallenges.com . I'll create my own little workout routine for you guys later on. Good luck!- Sin
Told you guys that I would share my way of getting fit. One of these was is by a personal instructor on youtube. The channel name is called Blogilates. I know what most of you are thinking - "Oh it's just pilates. How will that help me? It's only for girls, that doesn't help at all" I'm here to tell you that it's not. Anyone can try it if they really want to. The instructor's name is Cassey Ho, and she has been teaching pilates for over 9 years. Her videos will kill you! On her site, blogilates.com, she has a free meal plan, workout calendar, printables, recipes, and anything you could possibly imagine a fitness trainer would have. She will definitely tighten your core and build some muscle - all at home! The only thing I will say is that you have to do some type of cardio like running, using the bicycle, elliptical, etc. She's not much of a fan of cardio. She even has her own app! Another app I downloaded is called PumpUp. That app is amazing! It has exercises that could be done at home and at the gym. I encourage you guys to try them!
No one ever cared about their weight and/or their appearance when they were younger. But there comes a point in life when you decide that you want to change and get fit. Not everyone feels that way, and that's great. But the ones who do whatever it takes to get fit never quit. I started working out when I was 14. I was not as worried about my weight or appearance until I realized that my weight gain was causing me health problems. I was a big chested, non-curvy girl. All my weight was in my chest and that affected my back and knee greatly. I didn't feel good at all; I felt like everyone always pointed out my big chest and well, who wants that ? So then, I decided to start my journey.
