So, I took 2 days off from working out because it was that time of the month and I was tired and didn't feel like reenacting that scene from The Shining:
But, I'm ready to get back on track with my workouts because I miss them! I also think I need them, frankly. Between my new scale, my time of the month, and my insatiable desire to eat everything in the house (which was really just 2 pieces of Ezekiel bread at 10 pm last night...with butter), I need the workouts to get that scale moving! I can't wait to get my new workout clothes I ordered!
This song, best known for the Mannequin Challenge, made a good warmup!
This was a super fun routine, but the moves are hard in the middle!
This is one of my repeat videos. I just like doing it! It's a fun workout! I did this one twice because I taped myself doing it the second time, but it's still too much of an exerstruggle!
This was such a fun one and it's not that hard! I did this one twice and you can see the results below! Yes, I'm being brave and posting me working out. Being honest about my body and my out-of-shapeness is important to me because it's something I need to come to terms with...that it's okay to have a fuller figure, that it's okay to be out of shape, but trying. As someone who lost a lot of weight years ago, I always felt that extra pressure to stay in shape because people looked at you as a "success" so when the weight came back on, it was hard to face that because you feel like you failed not only yourself, but people who looked up to you. It's that same fear that has kept me out of a gym for so long. I don't want to be the fuller figure, out of shape person at the gym, but how are you to ever get in shape if you're afraid of putting yourself out there. Seeing myself exerstruggling is hard for me (I was on cheerleading and dance team almost three decades ago), but necessary because it's the first step in getting out there moving and getting in shape. If seeing me doing these workouts is enough to get someone else moving, then it's worth it to me to put this hot mess out there! If I can do it, so can you!
