Just a quick exciting update !!
My nutrition has been ON this last week! I have cut dairy milk out as a test. I think I may have a sensitivity to it and replaced it with almond milk. Ever since I have not craved chocolate....coincidence???? hmm...
I've increased veggies, fruits, protein and transferred to more whole grains and added nuts into my routine.
AND that solution i was talking about last week.......WELL I did alter where I exercise its just not a place more people would be caught doing a workout. Again the house I am in is VERY small so unless I workout outisde or in front of the television that someone is watching then im SOL. So tonoght I found a bodyweight workout on youtube by a guy from nerdfitness, wrote it down and went into my bathroom....YES my bathroom to do it. That way i didn't bother anyone else and they didn't bother me. There was just enough room to do everything int he wokout! After doing the circuit 3 times I just right into the shower and voila!
I've also been unable to go to Zumba this week because of workshops I needed to attend and my staff meeting, both taking place at the same time as Zumba. i figured this would be the perfect time to add those strength training workouts in.
Here is the beginner body weight circuit:
Warm up: 5-10 mins (I ran on the spot , jumped, and did jumping jacks)
20 body weight squats
10 push ups
10 dumbell rows per arm
15 second plank
30 jumping jacks
Repeat three times.
Now this was a beginner workout and I was able to complete the entire workout in between 10-15 minutes. not including warm up or stretching.
One observation i had was the leg exercises were fairly easy because i have been doing this in Zumba alot. however, the pushups were KILLER. I found the plank and pushups really worked my arms and core which felt pretty awesome.
Anyways. Have a great night. Apologies for the lack of editing and the random scrambling of words typed. I guess that's what happened when a tired person tries to blog!
