Another Day Another Workout

It seems like I got out of school a lot earlier than my friends, so this island that I call home has been pretty desolate. Lucky for me my only daily obligations are working out, finding the next days workout, and netflix. I am the type of person who needs to be stressed. I need to have a million things going on, or I don’t know what to do with myself. So in order to not go crazy by doing nothing for five weeks I figured why not devote all my attention to getting the body I actually want. Were not talking just a run of the mill new years resolution to get into good old fashion shape, I mean the body I have always really wanted. Since my problem area has always been my thighs I decided it was time to stop doing 30 squats here, and 30 lunges there and actually target my legs instead of doing countless ab exercises. Once again I cannot stress enough how helpful 8tracks is for me. If I hadn’t of had the playlist I had this workout would have been sooo grueling, but thankfully I had Britney Spears to lip sync to (hope the cute guy in the same room didn’t mind). I already feel this in my legs, and am scared to get out of bed in the morning. 

1. Music:

You Better Work, bitch on 8 tracks by Briannalim Ke$ha’s latest, Britney’s oldest what more could you want?

2. Cardio:

I have humungous blisters on my feet from running on the treadmill for 40 and 50 minutes at a time this past week (I have finally decided that I’m not a runner is just a mind game, and I will be a runner). So that leaves the elliptical… the boring old elliptical where sometimes I struggle to break a sweat… Thanks to lovely old pintrest I found a workout that I really enjoyed, it was an interval workout that was challenging but in a different way, and I still burned over 500 calories in 30 minutes (according to the machine-which I know is programmed to over exaggerate).

3. Leg workout: 

When seeing this I thought it was a lot and that I could probably only handle one round even though the workout suggested 2-3. But I find that if I just start something I will be way more likely to push myself mentally to go the whole way. So once I started I realized I wasn’t going to die and I needed to do two rounds, maybe next time I will do three!
