Pinterest Workout Challenge

12 Aug

14 day challenge

Today, I am starting a new series “Pinterest Workout Challenge”   Where I am going to pick from the numerous workouts on my Pinterest board and, well, do them! Because we all do it – we pin these great workouts that promise outstanding results and then. . . .look at them a few months later and think, “I really should do this.” So, while I’ve been thinking this series idea over, I hadn’t set a date of when to start it until I got up this morning and did this workout! 

14 Day Lean Legs Challenge

Now, when I was younger, it was rare to see me wear shorts. Ever. If I did, they were long…. to my knees. I hated my legs. They were/are blind-you-every-time-you-look-at-them white and the opposite of what my friend terms her legs as ‘chicken legs’. I have always been super sensitive about  the fact that I have stretch marks on my thighs and that when I sit down, my thighs look twice as big as they actually are. These past few summers I have gotten better about wearing shorts – realizing that I’m the only one who sees my legs in such a negative way.  Driving around with my OH over the weekend, I told him I want ‘runner’s legs.’ Now, while I had to explain what that meant to him, I’m sure all you ladies understand what I mean by that. Firm. Shaped. Fit. Tanned. I know I might have to give up that last description but that’s my goal!  I want to be fit overall but for this next two weeks I am going to focus on my legs. 

Our house has no carpet, only linoleum so I try to avoid workouts that require laying down. . .which limits me of course. But I am excited to commit myself to this challenge!  Check out the workout – it’s super easy – I will say I’m not too keen on some of the photos on this site (while they aren’t horrible, they show a little too much for my taste)  but I just scroll down away from the photo.
