Pinterest Workout Challenge #2

27 Aug


Pinterest Workout Challenge

Well, it has been two weeks and I am a little disappointed with myself at how many days I have missed. =(  I would do good for a few days and then sleep in….. or forget…. Sigh. So I have made a little list of what I need to improve on:

~ have workout clothes ready for the morning 

~ workout even when my OH is home

~ Get up around the same time every morning

Honestly, I think getting up and working out when my OH is home is going to be the most difficult one! He is only home 3 days a week right now, so I always want to laze about with him instead of lacing up my shoes and working out. But I’ve simply got to. This week, my mom and I have been meeting each morning and walking with our dogs. We walk about 3 miles. Woot!  But I want to also do a workout. . . . I was thinking of continuing the leg workout, but how boring is that when I’ve got a bunch of different leg workout pinned? So, I am going to come back to that one some day and try this new one.

Ironically, this one has the same moves as the first workout I chose, with a few more added in. So, the goal is to do this before/after I walk with my mom! As this isn’t a stated ‘in 2 weeks’ workout, I am thinking I will set it a goal for myself. 2 weeks and stick with it. 

Are you joining me this week in the workout challenge? What workout are you doing?

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.
