Top o' the mornin' to ya!
I hope your Monday wasn't too rough on you and that your Tuesday has been a breeze so far!
I wanted to pop in and share two things with you all today: an AWESOME shoulder workout and some progress pics. Let's start with the workout, shall we?
Yesterday morning I was looking around the internet and found a workout similar to the one below. I made a few little tweaks and it turned out to be an amazing workout and my shoulders were on fire by the time it was all said and done.
It may look like there isn't much to it, but trust me, you'll feel the burn. Do 20 reps of each exercise, then 15, 10, 5 and so on making your way back up to 20 reps. Make sure you go up in weight on your set of 5 reps!
After the pyramid portion of the workout, go getcha a plate and do 10 front raises every minute on the minute (EMOM) for 6 minutes. It will hurt to lift your arms the day after you do this workout. You're welcome. :)
Moving right along...
As I mentioned last week I have significantly cleaned up my diet and have upped my cardio in hopes of getting a bit leaner for our vacation (which is less than 3 weeks away!). In addition to some diet and exercise changes I have also made it a point to snap progress pictures every so often. Sometimes it's hard to see your progress when you're simply looking at yourself in the mirror. I like to put pictures side by side so I can see where I have made changes. I have seen the biggest change in my mid-section and arms.
I have also been logging my weight and I am down about 6lbs so far. I plan on sticking to my diet and exercise plan right up until we leave for Mexico. I'm hoping to lean out a bit more and then my plan is to maintain. I'm taking it one meal and one workout at a time because I'm starting to get mega cravings for any and all carbs. I keep reminding myself that my body is capable of anything, it is my mind that I have to convince. Go kill those workouts this week!
