I am going to confess something hoping I am not the only one. Most days I wear yoga pants so that when the opportunity to work out comes, I am just READY for it! The beauty of yoga pants is they look super cute with a comfy top and most flat shoes. I have even rocked ballet flats with my yoga pants and didn’t feel totally unfashionable. Today I wore my favorite black Champion yoga pants. I should have bought 5 pairs of these when I found them, they are amazing. I own them in capri form as well so I can rock them year-round. The girls got to bed on time tonight so I got to get my new favorite show in(This is Us) and my work out in – yay!! All I had to do was throw on a tank and my five finger shoes.
I have been teased many times for loving my five finger shoes. I have had them for 4 years and I still love them as much as the first time I wore them!! They feel like you have no shoes on, and they don’t make my feet look huge, so I can wear them with a t-shirt dress or shorts in warm weather (whenever warm weather decides to show it’s face–arghh!!) #whereareyousummer. I checked Amazon for you guys and you can still buy them here.
In case you are wondering what exercises I do, they are 99% of the time going to be by Fitness Blender on YouTube. You guys, they have over 600 workouts for FREE on youtube. I have been obsessed with them for a couple years now. Whether you only have time for a 5 minute squat workout or you want a full body workout with weights, they are for you!! They have kept me interested in exercising for way longer than I have ever been able to go in the past. They don’t put music in the background so you can rock out to your own tunes (or watch TV) I have done that, if I want to watch TV I will just put the exercise video of choice on my phone and watch my favorite shows at the same time. I do a 1 hour lower body pilates video by Fitness Blender that requires you to be on the floor the whole time. You can totally watch your favorite show during this work out! The link to this amazing workout is here.
Tonight I chose a couple of my trusty favorites. I wanted a quick arm workout and even quicker ab workout. I started off with my favorite bicep/tricep video by popsugarliving (link here). Then I did another favorite arm exercise by Fitness Blender (link here)I ended with an 8 minute ab exercise by Fitness Blender (link here).
If any of you need a change to your exercise routine I hope you will try some of their videos out, it changed my life! I was able to quit the expensive classes I was attending and stay toned at home. I have never been one to be able to work out successfully on my own, so having easy to follow videos has been a life saver! Now if I could only stop eating so many carbs….
