Enjoying life one day at a time!
This week I worked on trying to target my abs again. I have been really confusing on my lower body strength that I fell to incorporate my ab workout, so this week I tried to get back in the swing of things. I started to do stand up crunches while I brushing my teeth, going up the stairs and while standing in line. I also begin to run again. I am trying to get in the routine and walking up early to do ab workout and just running at night.
It was nice going back to the original exercises from the beginning of the course. I forgot how hard they were but I enjoyed them because they are effective. I know my stomach is going to be sore in the morning. I like the teaching days as well because now I can incorporate both exercises in my routine.
This week I had fun working out. I forced my friends to come with me and we took over the swimming pool at AFC. Swimming is a great exercise. I did a couple of laps and I was beat! I am going to start swimming more often.
I love learning new exercises this week. I have already start using some the exercises in my morning routine. Though I usually work on my core area and butt, I have enjoyed doing cardio workouts to build up some sweat. I also enjoyed teaching the class, the teaching days are a great way for students to learn new exercises for themselves and others.
This week exercise was good. I enjoyed learning new exercises from my classmates. The best part was hula hooping, I did not realize how much that helps with my abs. This I also started new diet to help achieve the perfect abs. I started eating one product foods along with a lot fruits and vegetables.
My butt hurts! Squats with the weights seem to more effective than regular squats. I have been doing squats outside of class and it seem like they were not doing anything but ,since Thursday, I have been using the weights and getting that burn I have been looking for. I also been working on my abs. I have created a new diet to go along with my training as well.
Working out this week was amazing. I was able to run my mile in seven minutes and forty two seconds without feeling like I was going to pass out. I can see improvement in my breathing through core training. This week I have been working on my arms and flexibility in my free time.
Today's workout went really well! Partner exercises seem to be a more effective workout for me. I love the fact that I know more exercises that I can incorporate with my friends. My friends always want to go to the gym with groups but when we go it seems we always do separate exercises, now I can demonstrate how we can do exercises together. My favorite exercise is with the medicine balls!
This week's workouts targeted my arms! I was able to see progression in my arms because they are no longer soar as they were at the beginning. I also enjoyed the ball exercises, though rough, I feel that they were very effective. In the last three weeks I can tell difference in my body. I can tell my stomach is slimming down and my thighs. I still want to work on my butt so this week I am going to try to do more squats and butt exercises.
Yesterday workout was intense, but very helpful. I did not realize how much I needed to work on my arms than I thought. My arms are a little soar today but with more work on them it too shall pass. Yesterday also demonstrated that I am improving on my core because last week I was struggling on doing planks but it was easier this week. In between I do not go to class I will be running at the gym for cardio workouts to even out my activity.
