I. Suck. I started this Summer Blog Challenge off with great intentions, and then life hit. Between blogging, giveaway events, being a wife and mom, I have only posted two times so far. But on a positive note, this will be the third post!
Today's post question asks: fitness guru or couch potato?
This is an easy one for me! I love to work out. LOVE. My college degree is in Exercise Science, and I even worked as an instructor to teach people how to become Fitness Trainers. Exercise has and always will be a huge part of my life. I worked out my entire pregnancy, even on the day I went into labor!! I truly believe that being as fit as I was helped me last for as long as I did during labor...which was...by the way...40 hours!
I try to work out 4-5 times per week. I am in love with The Firm DVD's. They are so easy because:
- I can do them in my home = I can look like a nightmare without having to worry.
- It provides entertainment for my baby while I jump around on boxes and contraptions like the picture above.
- I can check my facebook updates in between exercises.
- It's cheap.
- I can have the AC on as high as I want.
But in all seriousness, The Firm provides a great total body workout with weight training and cardio. It provides a schedule to keep on track and even lets you supplement with walks, jogs, swims, etc. I have all 5 systems and tons of DVD's that I switch out on a regular basis. I even got hubby doing the power yoga video! I know you are dying for a video of that right? Well I will do you one better...here is a picture in my sports bra, no make-up with my packages of fluff! The fluff was my motivation for getting through the workout. I was so tempted to rip them open, but I restrained myself!!
