26 Weeks to Change – Day 12: Switching Up the Workouts

Pilates

Pilates, like yoga, is another workout I love to strengthen and tone

Today is another day where I have to be out the house early.

I wanted to do something a little different from my normal yoga routine, so I went with Winsor Pilates.

I did the 20-Minute workout only since I was crunched for time.  It’s a great go to workout whenever I need to do something but don’t have alot of time or options.

New to Pilates?

62 Days to Change: Day 12 – Mother’s Day, Sunday & All That Jazz

Mother's Day Gift

Today was Mother’s Day, did you get your mom a fabulous gift?

This beautiful Sunday morning was Mother’s Day!

No, I’m not a mom, but I had to get up early to call my wonderful mother.

I called and wished her a happy mother’s day, told her she should be getting her card early next week (yes, I forgot to mail it in time), and asked her plans for the day.  My dad and sister were taking her and my grandmother out to lunch, which is our common family tradition.

After speaking a bit to my mom, I got up and took my pre-workout supplement, did my visualizations, and I was off to the races!

Seriously, I was pumped and ready to go.  Below is what I did:

I’m starting to feel sluggish and stagnant with my kickboxing workouts, so I decided to try HIIT Jump Rope Training again.

Jump Rope HIIT Training

Jump rope HIIT training is an effective way for me to burn fat and get my cardio in.

Oh and Dr. Sara Solomon is a BEAST when it comes to this type of training.  Her free YouTube videos are wonderful.  Her personality is a bit quirky, but I like her style, her products and recipes.

Speaking of Dr. Sara, I decided to take the plunge and order her e-book Intermittent Fasting – Fast Fat Loss.  Since I’m fairly disciplined with the low-carb diet I’ve been on, but I’m not seeing the results I want, I decided I have nothing to lose from trying out this information.

I just started reading the ebook today, so as I implement it into my lifestyle, I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going!

Want a taste of Dr. Sara now?
