Todays workout: Fitness Blender's 5 Day Workout Challenge Day 1 Video

   UGH, today was a tough one! It has been raining all day so instead of going for a run I decided to do a free workout video on youtube from the Fitness Blender channel. I really enjoy doing their videos. I like that they aren't screaming in your face like a lot of the videos you see advertised on television. Fitness blender has videos for all fitness levels. I started out doing their low impact cardio videos two months ago. I certainly would not have been able to finish this if I hadn't! I love that they making out seem like fun, and that they offer their videos for free on youtube. I don't really plan to do the whole workout challenge unless it continues to be rainy outside or I just don't want to get ready to leave the house. I might add in another video before the night is over.



   I didn't read the description before doing this video, and if I had I would have noticed that you do need some weights for a few of the exercises in the video. I don't have any weights so I substituted in some heave objects that I found around the house. I might just have to get some weights now because that was a pain!

Workout outfit of the day:
 A pair of  Walmart Danskin Now shorts, a black cami from Kohls, and the Old Navy sneakers I talked about in the previous blog post.



 
Initial Thoughts: Oh, this won't be so bad.


End thoughts: There is a reason we are sitting on the floor. My jello legs won't stand up!

  1. Cute workout outfit of the day. I'm sure it's intense, I didn't finish watching the video. The last exercise program that I did was hip hop abs.

  5. I really need to start working out again. I'm not great with the videos but we have two treadmills, some Chuck Norris thing, another thingy attached to the wall, a weight bench, a bike/elliptical combo thing, and two sets of stairs. I should look like a gold medalist, but I'm 20 pounds overweight because I'm not using any of them. I gotta get in shape!

  24. I love your workout clothes but I can't imagine how you do the exercises off a small screen. I'm near sighted and that would be a major challenge. Keep up the good work.

  25. I love that there are so many options for exercise these days. Sometimes I can't get a run in and doing an online video is a lifesaver.

  27. Swallowing my new supplements pills definitely takes effort. But they have certainly helped to re-energize my enthusiasm for working out.
