‘No carbs before Marbs’ or rather ‘No carbs before Barbs’ as that’s where I’m off to (Barbados).
I’m a very goal orientated and motivated person and prefer to work under pressure. If I gave myself a goal that was in 6 months time I might not work as hard during the first few months because 6 months is just too far away for me.
I also like to push myself and, whilst I strive to have a healthy bod all year round I don’t think there’s anything wrong with becoming a little stricter and working harder for a special event or holiday- I want to look my best.
So with just under 4 weeks before my holiday (25 days- not that I’m counting or anything) I thought I’d up the exercise and cut the crap in my diet to really see what my body is capable of.
Let me tell you right now and save you years of trying shit, fad diets like I have, THEY DON’T WORK. Juice cleanses, detox teas, diet pills, wraps and ridiculous bone crushing corsets might work in the short term, but you can’t keep that shit up. It’s simply not sustainable (and not good for your body). So learn from mine and millions of others women’s mistake that the only way to lose weight is to eat healthy food you enjoy and move your body on the daily.
The other day Mummy Hem came home from the shops with a melon and it got me thinking, I could use that for my workout and then I don’t have to go to the gym. So I had a think about the different exercises I could do and have put them together for you in 3 videos for you to try at home! The best part? You can eat the melon once you’ve finished the workout 🙂
I completed a killer leg and butt workout on Saturday at the gym (with a few dips and pull ups thrown in there!) and got a really good pump for probably the first time ever!
My legs were killing the next day- you know the pain where sitting down on the loo is agony. Yeah it was like that. Serious muscle soreness.
Legs and bum are what I am really trying to shape and tone at the moment. So, if you have any suggestions of great bum or leg exercise- please share them in the comments!
Go give this workout a go and let me know how you get on.
