A friend asked me how I’ve managed to spend the past year losing 30 pounds (yes, as of today, I have lost 30 pounds!) of baby weight without going to the gym.
For me, the key has been working out at home. I used to love group fitness classes, but my schedule (and wallet) no longer allows for that. AND YES, I know you have to take time for yourself, blahblahblah, but I don’t even have a spare second to get my eyebrows waxed, let alone make it to the gym. If anyone understands how busy you are, it’s me. I promise.
In an effort to still workout but not go broke doing it, my husband and I set up a home gym. We purchased a quality treadmill last year (GREAT SALE! and an investment that has already proved to be less expensive than two gym memberships), picked up a weight bench and all the barbells/hand weights (for free!!- we just had to pick it up) and we have the internet:)
I run *jog* about 3 times a week. The other days I use online workout videos (free!), and I’m going to share my favs with you!
Tone It Up Arms:
Brooke Burke’s Butt Workout
Tone It Up Thighs
Jillian Michaels Banish Fat
I generally combine a few of the shorter workouts OR, if I have the time (usually on a weekend) I do an entire Jillian Michaels workout- there are a ton of them online!
Happy working out!
