Hey Everyone! I hope your all doing great! I wanted to make this post about my new fitness routine. I have been working out and changing my diet. So far I have lost 35lbs and I could not be happier. I am in the process of getting gastric bypass surgery and I wanted to try and lose some weight on my own so after my surgery I can continue. So here is what I have been doing.... First I cut out all the fast food and soda. I have gotten into the habit of reading the labels as well. I tried counting calories but I get so busy that I can never really keep track so I control my portions and read labels. I also joined the gym. Now my personal goal is to workout twice a day. It may not always be possible but I try my best. in the morning Hubby and I go to the gym together. OMG it is so much fun when you have someone with you. We really keep each other motivated. I also have some workout stuff I use at home so for my nightly workout. This is my workout equipment... I want to mention everything I bought was on clearance or on sale.
I have a yoga mat, a heavy duty resistance band, a 7lbs Kettlebell, 2 Five pound dumbbells, some workout videos and workout gloves. I also have a manual treadmill and simple pedometer (not picture). I keep it all in a big basket I got in Goodwill.
I have noticed that it is really easy to workout when all of your stuff is already in one place, so I keep the basket under the end table in the living room next to the treadmill. now if I want a quick workout I have no excuse because everything I need is already there. Now I also take a bag with me when I go to the gym in the morning. I keep it packed at all times so I can get up and go and not waste time.
Inside my bag I keep a Mp3 holder for your arm. I use my cell phone so I just stick in the holder. I have my headphones, a small bag, a brush and a towel. Now in the small bag I keep all my travel size products to save space. I normally get all these items for free using coupons so I keep them in a basket in my closet so when I need to refill its all in one spot. I keep a small deodorant, a small body wash, Aleve, a face wash, shampoo & conditioner, and wisk samples to brush my teeth. The bag is light weight and if I need to freshen up at the gym I have everything I need. I keep track of my workouts on a small calendar that I keep in my office space so I can visually see where I am at.
Well I hope you all have a great day!!! I would love to hear your comments and dont forget to follow me!
