Every so often, on Friday, I will be posting different workouts and ideas to get you moving and fit!
When I was a teenager I don’t think I ever worked out. I ate what I wanted and didn’t gain much weight. I was average weight. Not super skinny, but not overweight. Don’t get me wrong, I was not an athletic person at all. I wasn’t on any sports teams, although I did try out for basketball and got on the call back list! Okay okay, everyone got on the call back list…But I did enjoy music. So I put music on in my room and would dance dance dance while secretly hoping no one would walk in and catch me dancing like a fool. I did this for fun, but thinking back I now realize that it was all that dancing that kept me in shape.
Too bad dancing isn’t going to work for me now. Thankfully after having my adorable children my body needs more to stay in shape. And I am up for the challenge. I mean, I gave birth to them! If I can handle that, I can handle anything (Disclaimer: I am in no way trying to scare any new pregnant ladies out there. Giving birth is super easy and relaxing, almost like a mini vacation! Why else would I have had 3 children in 3 years!).
|So for those of you first starting out or haven’t worked out in a long time, I suggest dancing! You can put on any music you like and dance however you like since no one is watching you or if you have kids, dance with them. If you want to do more structured dance I recommend watching some videos from Billy Blanks Jr. Here is a link to YouTube with great short videos. Click Here
They also have a new DVD out that I might try. Just something fun to change up your workout. Check it out
No matter what, have fun!
