I Tried A New Workout .... Again!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Yesterday I tried a new exercise routine. Holy Moley!! emoticon

I thought I was gonna die! emoticon

A few months after I joined sparks, I hit a plateau and sparkers suggested changing my workout routine, so I did. Well that change was made back in January. Now it's July. For the last two weeks I noticed I have NOT been enjoying my workout AT ALL.

So I told my hubby and he suggested changing it up .... again. Ugh. emoticon

Okay, so yesterday I tried a new Youtube video workout: Ultimate Workout for Belly Fat Loss - Cardio and Abs Workout. There was a lot of mat work with legs in the air. It felt like my legs were on fire and about to drop off!! emoticon

After 17 of the longest minutes of my life, I was done. I felt sweaty and accomplished. Whew! emoticon

And you know what? Changing up my routine was EXACTLY what I needed. I usually take Fridays off from working out, but not today. I'm totally looking forward to trying this new workout again after work. emoticon

Have a great weekend, everyone! emoticon

    Awesome! We are works in progress. Always good to try new things and change things up when our bodies stop responding after a while.

    I also use Fitnessblender.com workouts in addition to spark workouts. My daughter sent me one, a 37 minute cardio/lower body workout. HOLY CRAP! The first three times I did, it took me just under and hour because I kept pausing it to catch my breath and walk around a bit. SO effective though!

    I'm glad you found somethign you enjoy!
