If I’d stuck to this challenge daily, we’d be just about on Day 30, and even though I still have 9 more workouts to go to finish what I’ve started, I can easily say that this is a habit I’m happy to have formed. I look forward to my workout every day and that’s saying something. There are some better habits I need to get into, like mixing it up more, adding more cardio, and doing longer videos, but overall I feel better than I did 30 days ago (and some of my old jeans fit again, so there’s that.)
Wednesday (day 19) I did this Full Body Activation video by Gymra. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this. I loved this video. You swing your arms and your legs and work your whole body in non-aggressive ways for 30 minutes. It was a great workout.
Verdict: Will be on regular rotation!
Yesterday I started Barre Full Length Ballet Workout: Sculpt Your Hips, Thighs, and Butt, in Less than 15 Minutes by JessicaSmithTV. I made it more than halfway when I started feeling dizzy. It wasn’t the video, though, it was a bad day for allergies.
Verdict: I’ve done this video before and really liked it. It’s tough and you definitely feel your legs and butt afterwards. I’ll come back to it because I love a good barre workout.
Today I did Pop Pilates: Pick-me-up Quickie Workout by Blogilates. It was pretty quick, though I felt it while I was doing it. I followed it up with 40 crunches, 40 bridges, 40 leg crosses, and 4 triceps dips just to lengthen the workout a little.
Verdict: Short and sweet, though I wish it were longer. I don’t mind putting a few different videos together though, so this one might make a comeback.
