It feels really, really good to be working out again! I originally planned to do cardio too but I was so tired but the end of the workout that I moved it to tomorrow.
Now, about my new workout: a couple of weeks ago I came across an amazing website: www.fitnessfooddiva.com. This site offers a blog, meal plans, a recipe index, and most important to me, a fitness index where the site owner, Shannon, has created quiet a few workouts and has them all outlined for you with photos, a video, a printable sheet and basically everything you need for a preplanned workout. It's like having an online trainer and she is so friendly and fast with answering emails too when I had questions. And she looks incredible!
I really like her workout lineups (better than mine) so I decided to start using them beginning with the 10 WEEKS TO FIT plan at her suggestion.
Now this is important: I am changing her plan a little for every workout because there are some exercises I don't know how to do correctly yet (my trainer will teach me), some exercises that my back wouldn't be able to handle and some my body just isn't ready for, so the workouts you see outlined here on my blog are a combo and of hers and mine. If you want to see her originals please follow the links above that I have included!
I'm so excited about these workouts and I'm looking forward to learning from her and trying them all out over time but everything starts with the first step which was Leg day today! Tomorrow will be shoulders, abs and cardio!
