Or shall we say Fit-torials? Anyway, fantastic workout last night, folks. Let’s walk through it, shall we?
First: the requisite sweaty, social media shot. (Done for Snapchat, in case you’re wondering. And no, I have no idea how it works.)
A bit of a smug smirk, no? And yet that’s the face you make when you’re murdering a treadmill, folks.
“This hurts. And you’re not smiling or smirking anymore, are you?”
Tiny guns growing in them arms. Also, since you see my trusty earbuds, the following artists are great for a workout:
- Justin Bieber (I’m serious. He’s annoying, but the little boy is talented. We’ll discuss further in another post. Kindly withhold the hurling of tomatoes in this direction.)
- Anything from the 90s. Last night, I rocked Ini Kamoze and Born Jamericans, great blasts from my past, and they had me literally running in rhythm on the treadmill.
- Whatever floats your fitness boat, really. I’ve also rocked Carly Simon and Anita Baker in my ears while exercising, so to me, it’s whatever you prefer.
Closeup of the facial sheen. (I love to see myself sweating.)
That’s it for the pictorials. As far as last night’s regimen:
-30 minutes of cardio on the ‘mill
-30 minutes of the following: squats, Russian twists, bicycle crunches, weight lifting (again, trying to birth some guns), and my very favorite, planks. I tried to do multiple reps of each.
-At least several minutes of stretching
You read about my winter struggle to find motivation. Since then, I’ve been really pleased with the turnaround and getting back to my routine, so I wanted to share.
Tell me: if you’re a gym rat or just enjoy exercising/being active, what are some of your favorite things to do?
