Get yo’ fitness on – Week 2 and a Mark Edge Giveaway

Okay fellow worker-outers!  I gave you a week break to recover from week 1 of Get Yo’ Fitness On, but it’s back ‘on like Donkey Kong’! I’ve managed to keep up with the workouts, so I hope you have as well.  Also, for the first time in a LONG WHILE, my hubby actually mentioned to me that I’m looking fit lately, so maybe some noticeable, physical changes are happening!

Ernieways, on to this week’s workouts (click on link for summaries exercises):

There you have it!  Three days of workouts for the week!  Remember, diet is also a big part of your journey to wellness and being healthy, so make healthy choices!  I’ve recently taken to protein smoothies and hard boiled eggs, and I have to say, not only are they filling, but also healthy and low in calories!  Check me out after a workout with my smoothie and hard-boiled eggs on the go:

Get yo’ fitness on – Day 2, Week 1

So??  What did you think of the first workout??  Hope you enjoyed it!  If you happen to have missed it, be sure to check it out here.  As a momma of two, it’s often hard to to both find the time to workout and have workouts that can be done anywhere.  That’s what I’m hoping we can provide you with during this six-week period.  I started working out a couple of weeks ago, but more seriously since starting the 6-week program designed by Home Fit Consulting.  So far, I’ve done a decent job of keeping up with my workouts and making healthier food choices. Here are a couple examples of some of the things I have been eating lately.

Kale Salad, http://chicinacademia.com

Kale Salad – kale lightly rubbed with EVOO, tomato slices, half a diced avocado, and a little bit of feta cheese.

post-workout snack, http://chicinacademia.com

Post workout snack – unsweetened soy milk, single shot, decaf latte with three hard boiled eggs. Only two were consumed as one ended up falling on the floor before I could eat it. 😦

I am not working out every day, but have tried to squeeze in small workouts like the one in this post, a 7-minute workout, or even a short 20 minute workout on the treadmill or elliptical.  I find that although I am not working out for long periods of time, I do have more energy than before and am maintaining my weight.  So, all in all, this new ‘healthier’ lifestyle is leading to positives all around.

So, for day 2 of week two, Home Fit Consulting and I have the following workout planned for you:

I’m personally excited about this workout because they target the areas I’m always looking to tone up – my legs and abs.  The forward lunge is one of the only movements that truly tones and slims my thighs, so hopefully it will work for you too!

Finally, please keep in mind that this six-week program is not designed to make you lose weight.  IF you do this in combination with some cardio and a healthy diet, there is a chance that those changes will result in weight loss, but that is not what this program is designed for.  The program is designed to incorporate fitness into your weekly routine and to provide you with opportunities to achieve a healthier lifestyle.  Also please note: you should always consult with your doctor before considering any workout program  and do be careful as you try each of these moves so that you don’t injure yourself.  For additional questions, feel free to reach out to Cody Robinson of Home Fit Consulting!

Okay, now that the serious stuff is out of the way, be sure to have fun with these workouts!  Can’t wait to hear about your experience, so make sure to leave me messages in the comments section below. 🙂

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!
