OOTD: Workout Wednesday

 

 

Hello Again There Gorgeous…

With guest posts comes Workout Wednesday, also! I know that going to the gym or getting a little workout in is the last thing we want to do when we have a million other things we need to do in getting ready for the holidays, but just think about that little outfit you want to wear on New Years Eve when you are trying to think of an excuse not to go, and make a little time for the treadmill!

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday

 

Top:  Forever 21 Padded Workout Tank – forever21.com, $15

Sports Bra:  Victoria’s Secret Supermodel Cami Sport Bra – victoriassecret.com, $33

Pants: Adidas Tight Workout Pants – adidas.com, $55

How can you not want to go to the gym just to wear this cute little outfit?! It’s so adorable… I would drop what I was doing just to be able to wear the workout outfit, but that is always my inspiration for working out (if I can’t think of anything else…)! I just absolutely love workout clothes, not only are the super  comfy, but they make me look so sporty so even if I am not going to the gym right then, people think I am and they think I am so skinny… Hahaha (just a little confession… I probably shouldn’t tell people that, but consider yourselves lucky!)

I hope you beautiful ladies have an awesome day and keep your eyes open for more to come later today maybe…

OOTD: Workout Wednesday

What better inspiration to hit the gym than the upcoming holiday season? I know it is a busy time of year for everyone (especially this week…) but this time of the year is one of the most important times to make sure you aren’t skipping any gym sessions! It is so easy to lose sight of your goals and progress with the holiday season coming, putting off the gym until January with all of the other New Year’s Resoultioners, but that is not the way to go, ladies! Trust me, you will regret this! So, take a half hour out of your day and hit the treadmill (or whatever machine you like to frequent!) With that being said… this week’s Workout Wednesday:

Don’t cheat yourself and cause yousrelf to say “shoulda, woulda, coulda”.  You should and you can prevent these future feelings now! So, get off your gorgeous little booty, and hit the gym! We all love being skinny, but sitting on the couch eating all of those cookies, pie, cake, and everything else you have in the home is not going to get you that way or keep you that way… So get your butt to the gym girlfriend!

Stay tuned for more Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

 Happy Hump Day… Hit The Gym!!!

Wow… Where has the week gone?! It’s already Wednesday!! Don’t let the stress from the past two days of work (or, if you’re like me, school…) stop you! Get your little booty to the gym and make sure you’re looking your best for the weekend that is coming quickly!

This Workout Wednesday is an especially special one for me, because one of my roommates (and best friends) is turning 22 today!! Happy birthday Michele!

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday

 

Pullover:  Techfit Climawarm Half Zip Hoodie – addidas.com, $60

Tank Top:  Tees by Tina Racerback Tank – pinkmascara.com, $38

Pants: Hard Tail Rolldown Layering Leggings – pinkmascara.com, $69

Shoes:  Nike Free 3.0 Women’s Running Shoe – nike.com, $100

Phone:  Apple iPhone 5c – apple.com, $99

Okay, so you’re probably thinking “…why would an iPhone ever go with a workout outfit?!” and I don’t blame you because if I just saw this somewhere, I would say the same thing! But, add your music to your phone (rather than an iPod or an MP3 player) and you can have your phone with you while you workout (perfect for safety reasons if you’re running or exercising outside!) and you can have your music without having to worry about carrying them both!  One thing I like to do, is bring my phone (or sometimes even my iPad if I’m feeling bold!) to the gym with me and watch an episode of one of my favorite shows while I run! It makes the hour fly by and you forget you’ve been running for that long!

I hope you all have a wonderful day today, and get a quick workout in! Even if you’re super busy, just 15 or 20 minutes is better than 0! Take advantage of this beautiful weather while it’s still here and go for a run outside or do something outdoors that you won’t be able to when winter hits!

XOXO, Kristen

One Of My All-Time Favorite Treadmill Workouts!

We all know that intervals are the best way to lose weight (burn fat) while increasing your endurance at the same time… However, I know that personally, I am not all that fond of them! When I go for a run, I like to just set my pace and incline and go, if I think about it along the way I may change the speed or incline and I may not. It is my time to clear my mind, and in a way “relax” (I know… I sound crazy!). But, in an effort to tone up a little and increase my endurance, I have been trying out some interval workouts! So far, this one has been the hardest hands down! But, I actually really liked it! And, I definitely felt like I accomplished something HUGE when I was done! Here it is, I really encourage you to try it out and let me know what you think!

Want to try some of the other interval workouts I’ve done? Check out my Pinterest page! All of the ones I have tried are pinned on my “Thinspiration board!

Last Minute Beach Bod… 6 Exercises To Get Your 6 Pack Back!

Looking For A Quick Fix To Get That 6 Pack Back Before Your Beach Trip? These 6 Ab Exercises Are Sure To Help You Get Back Your Sexy Beach Body

1.  Ab Crunch

Ab Crunch - Ab Workout

 

The abdomen crunch is the most common and easiest ab exercise that you can do.  Simply lie on the floor with your back flat and your arms bent behing your head.  Then bend your legs and touch your knees to your elbows.

Modified way for beginners: Do the same thing, just lift your head up and put it between your knees each time rather than bringing your knees to your elbows!

2.  Reverse Ab Pose

Ab Workout - Beach bod

 

Lie on your back and put your arms in the shape of a T, with your legs lifted so they are perpendicular to the floor.  Move your hips a few inches to the left, exhale and drop both of your legs to the right… slowly! Make sure you stop before your legs hit the floor.  Hold your legs in the position above the floor for a deep breath, exhale and return back to where you started.  Repeat the exercise on both sides – alternate sides for 20 reps, doing 10 on each side

3.  Ab Vacuum

ab vacuum

 

Lie on on your back with your arms above your head, your feet on the floor, and your legs bent. Slowly lift your spine until your hips are high.  Exhale as you relax your abs and lower your spine down to the ground. As you do this, a natural vacuum will draw your belly in. When your hips are on the floor, lower hands to start position. Repeat 7 to 10 times.

4.  Ab Twist

ab twist

 

To do this one, you sit on the floor with your legs bent.  Lean your chest back and lift your feet off the ground about 6-9 inches balancing all your weight on your lower back and butt.  Then, holding a either a medicine ball or a weight and rotate your body to either side, letting the ball/weight almost touch the ground. Make sure you keep your abs tight the whole time! Do 2 to 3 sets of 15 reps on each side (30 total).

Modified way for beginners:  keep your feet on the floor, rather than lifting them 6-9 inches off the ground.  Everything else stays the same!

5.  Planks

Planks - 6 Pack Ab Exercises

Or was we used to call them in cheerleading, “elbows and toes”! Get into a push up position and then lower your arms so your forearms are resting on the ground, balancing your body weight along with your toes.  Do 2-3 sets, holing the plank for 1 one minute.

6. Leg Lifts with an Exercise Ball

Leg Lifts with Exercise Ball - 6 Pack Abs

Lie on the floor, flat on your back.  Start with the ball in your hands, with your arms extended above your head. Put the ball between your feet, squeezing them together to keep the ball in place, and lower both of your arms and legs down towards the floor. Make sure you only go down as far as you can without arching or straining your back. Then, bring them both back up and grab the ball with your hands.  Lower your arms and legs back down to the floor and start again! Do 2-3 sets of 15-25 reps.

Modified way for beginners:  try doing the same exercise without the ball! (Just touch your finger tips to your toes when you raise your arms and legs!)

With these 6 exercises, regular cardio, and healthy eating, you’re sure to have that six-pack back before you know it! Good luck! :)

XOXO Kristen
