❤Summer Body Routines❤



Recommended Posts

The saying is Summer Bodies are made in the winter...

Let's start a thread for everything needed to transform including workouts routines, DVDs, class, equipment, supplements, timing, sleep patterns, etc. to prep for summer (or the summer of our lives)

❤ VETS PLEASE PARTICIPATE, WE VALUE YOUR KNOWLEDGE ❤

Hopefully this can help people accelerate results and avoid wasting time in confusion.

Also alternatives for individuals with mobility issues would be greatly appreciated if anyone has the knowledge (chair exercises, etc.) Let's try to make this as inclusive and sustainable as possible.

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

So far I've been to the gym every day this year in 2019 (all 13 days, haha) but my goal is to work out at least 4 days per week. I do 30 minutes of cardio and 10-15 minutes of strength training each session, but I want to eventually ramp up and work out harder/faster/longer, but I'm only one month post-op so I'm still healing and don't want to push it yet.

Well it is snowy outside in Ohio, not gonna March out and fall on my tookus, bust a bone or two. But Spectrum, the former Time Warner has a low impact senior citizen.exercise program , lasts about 12 minutes. Surely I can start with that, even if I don't make it to swimsuit quality I can enough that I look passable in Bermuda or Jaimaca Shorts. And that's a plus right there!

I’m starting Planet Fitness tomorrow. I had my surgery Dec 13, 2018. I’ve healed enough to get started. Good luck on your journey.

I’m back to spin class tomorrow after a 1.5 month break. Hope I don’t die. 😂😂

Also- when I started working out, I weighed about 380lbs. I highly recommend doing a few sessions with a personal trainer if you can swing it financially. They ensure proper form and help you prevent injury... also, and this is super helpful for people of size, they should be able to modify the exercises to your physical abilities.

I’m trying to get back on my workout game. I feel like I say this a lot. My better half is in SF this week for work, so I’m trying to use this time to get back in my routine.

I actually followed through with the squat challenge today! I can't believe I remembered. I may set an alarm now.

I worked out today for the first time since my surgery. I did okay, but I’m a little sore tonight. No pain no gain.💪🏼

Winter is trying to get me y'all... There was the clearest sheet of ice everywhere. I'm jumping rope indoors and maybe I'll go to the gym for weight training since it's not a pizza or bagel day for members, wtf right...

As you jump rope, dream of wearing shorts, tank tops and summer dresses. You already rock fashion. I'm waiting for your spring/summer style photos.

      A week and a day since surgery. Last night was the first night I got actually sleep, clocking in 7 hours. Oddly enough it's left me tired all day, but I didn't nap.
      2 days ago my gas pains subsided (woohoo!)
      I have aches and pains and of course sharp little pains around all the incisions (6 + 1 where the drain was), and I can't take the tylenol with codeine because it makes me feel like I have vertigo.
      I have started the countdown mentally to my soft food stage starting on Monday. Looking forward to that, can't wait to see if eggs and cheese will still be my friends.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!
