Happy day after Wednesday y’all!
These past few weeks I’ve been trying to get back into a proper workout regimen. Now that summer is here and my 3 month trial gym membership is up I have to find different ways of working out not only because my membership is up but also because I’m the type of person who gets bored of things and that usually results in me giving up. I’m not giving up no matter what! Even if I have a few bumps in the road I will pick myself back up and try harder. As I said I think two blogs ago?.. I started rollerblading which has been fantastic and killer too, but now our pool at the place I live at is open! So I wanted to figure out some exercises I could do in the pool so I could enjoy the nice weather yet still fit in a workout. Luckily my lovely Aunt who is a retired fitness instructor helped me out and came and showed myself and a friend of mine some awesome exercises to do in the pool. Such as, flutter kicks (killer), a juggle/scooping motion with your hands under water (also killer) and many more. One works your legs and the other really works your arms and then your cardio can really come from doing laps if anything. There really is so much variety you can do you just have to be willing to try new things and also do a bit of research.
Even though my gym membership at The Reh Fit Centre expired, I have a free membership through my work at the gym located at our head office. So the past two days I’ve gone there and one of the days I ended up rollerblading to the gym as my cardio portion and it wasn’t a short rollerblade it was about 10km and took me 1 hour and 20 mins to do. It might be a bit pathetic that it took me that long but man was I happy to accomplish that goal that I set! It was an amazing feeling, despite my feet hurting really bad haha. But I find if I set goals when it comes to working out it helps me find motivation to workout. Don’t be afraid to set small achievable goals to push you and spark motivation! It’ll only help you in the long run.
The main thing here is don’t give up, but don’t hold yourself back either. Don’t get down on yourself because you decided the buy sugar loaded freezies because it’s summer and that’s your favourite treat. Busted… hahaha. Seriously though enjoy life it’s too short. But also do things for yourself! Get out there and achieve a kick ass workout I promise you won’t regret it.
