New Year, New You!? Isn’t that what we always say?? After the holidays I’ve told myself I am getting into a workout routine and not letting myself slack! So… I am sharing it all on here so you gals can help hold me accountable 😉

& this post comes from so many requests! Since I started my blog many people have asked what my eating habits are, how often I workout, what routines I do, do I prefer cardio or weights.. So today, I am dishing all the details!

  • How often do I workout? 4-5 days a week
  • What’s my favorite cardio workout? Stair steppers.. I use to be super into running, but now I am trying to switch it up! 
  • Favorite weight machine. Lat Pull Down
  • Favorite Ab Workout. 8 minute abs on Youtube!! Y’all gotta try it! Plus the two exercises I show below. 
  • I recommend trying HIIT on the treadmill! It really gets your heart rate up and burns more calories rather than just jogging.
  • To maintain my weight I try to use my FitnessPal to count my calories. It’s good for logging your meals and tracking your exercise.
  • Here’s an example of a workout weekly schedule I use:
    • Monday-  Legs (Squats, Leg Press, Leg Extension)
    • Tuesday-  Abs (Sit Ups, Crunches)
    • Wednesday- Arms (Biceps Curls, Tricep Dips, Overhead Press, Bench Press)
    • Thursday-  Cardio (Running, Jogging, Elliptical, Stair Steps)
    • Friday-  Legs (Squats, Lunges, Wall Sits)
    • Saturday-  HIIT Workout, Abs
    • Sunday- Rest Day

Exercise 1: 90 Degree Lateral Dumbbell Arm Raise – I love this exercise because it’s great for your shoulders! I do 3 sets, 10 reps.

Exercise 2:  Stability Ball Crunches – I recommend these over basic crunches. It allows you to crunch with a full range (forward & back) versus ones on the ground.

Exercise 3: Standing Overhead Dumbbell Press- Another great exercise for your shoulders and arms!

Exercise 4: Stability Ball Tummy Tucks- I like these because they work your lower & upper abs. At first these can be kinda tricky because it’s hard to grip the ball.
