Well, it is winter here in North Dakota. This morning it is a whopping 23 degrees. It has already snowed here a few times, and thankfully all of it melted. However, the freezing cold weather is here to stay (no matter how much I beg and plead …okay maybe overly curse mother nature). I know most of us want to hibernate once the cold weather hits, and this causes us to pack on the pounds. Make this the year that you don’t hibernate and gain that winter weight! Make it your goal to stay fit and healthy. I know this will be my goal for the winter, and I know it is going to be hard. There will come times when I will start pacing the kitchen (while hiding inside from the snow and –50 degree wind chills) craving something warm, gooey, and sweet. I will fight it!!! We all must or the winter weight gain will win again!!! I will not let white, ugly, fluffy stuff that falls from the sky be the reason I gain weight and you mustn’t either!
So, we all must continue working-out throughout the horrible winter weather! The added bonus is that by continuing your workouts or starting to workout you will have that beach body for next year!! If you are just beginning, make sure you are incorporating cardio and weights into your weekly workout routine. This will keep you toned and burning calories throughout the winter.
Right now I’m missing my beaches and warm weather in Florida a bunch. Therefore, I pulled out this old workout I did a lot in Florida. You can do it on the beach or dreaming you’re at the beach .
Also, stay tuned for a free give-away that will be announced this weekend!
Bad news everyone! It is freaking snowing and sticking to the ground here in good old ND this morning. Needless to say, I’m not a happy camper and a few 4-letter words have been coming out of my mouth. The good news is that Hank and Tilly are outside playing and living it up in the snow. Lady and I (being the Florida girls that we are) are inside grumbling, so I decided to create some happy endorphins and workout. Even though it is snowing outside, I thought I would go with a Halloween theme since the rest of the country is enjoying their fall weather! After I finished this workout, I followed it up with my Ab-tastic 30 Workout.
Next up…crock-pot applesauce! That should warm me up a bit!
Well, fall/winter (lows in the teens) is here. I’m not really all that excited about it since I love warm weather, but with fall comes heartwarming foods. I have spent quite a bit of time in my kitchen baking the past few days. I’m breaking out old recipes and creating new ones that use apples and pumpkin. We have a ton of both ingredients. With all this baking comes eating, or as I like to call it “taste testing,” and the taste testing has gotten a bit out of hand. Like most women, what I eat loves to settle in my abdominal and thigh area. So, this morning (before the baking begins yet again) I did some cardio and worked my abs pretty good with this 6-Pack Ab Workout. I always go to these ab exercises when I fear the worst for my abdominal area. This workout targets your oblique abs a bunch and will help those muscles pop! If you are a beginner to working out, you may only want to do 2-3 sets of these exercises. Remember to stretch afterwards!
This abdominal workout is designed to hit every muscle in your abdominal region. It will help tone and tighten up your abs and help you work your way to that “beach belly” you have always wanted or want to keep! If you are a beginner you may want to turn this into an ab-tastic 20 workout. Remember to stretch afterwards!
