FIT Friday

I can’t believe it’s already Friday! Where in the heck did the week go so fast? Not that I’m complaining or anything…

Here’s today’s inspiration to get moving:

Ok, this looks…difficult. Holding up your body in plank position is, however, an incredible way to strengthen your arms. And, after all, the title of this workout is Arm R.I.P.

If you really want to try this but are a beginner, don’t be afraid to use modifications. Drop one knee, drop both knees, take a stretch break. Just get through it. And, as with anything, next time you do it, you’ll get better!

Let me see you sweat!

I got a little too busy yesterday to post my Friday workout! But there’s still time to sweat it out, no worries!

Give this ball routine a go and see how your abs feel in the morning…

I think my favorite body part to work is my tummy. I’m having to build my core strength back up again after having the baby, but I can definitely tell I’m getting stronger. Always remember, even if it doesn’t seem like you’re going anywhere, your body is evolving and progressing with every ounce of effort you put into it! Go for it!

Have a great weekend!

It’s been a long day and I’m just now getting a chance to sit down. Ugh.

This shall be quick!

Here’s a nice Pilates workout for your thighs. I’ve done this before and all I have to say is ouch!

Happy Friday!

Already Friday! Thank goodness! In this house, Friday means I get an opportunity to catch up on some much-needed sleep. You see, my husband works nights. Sunday through Thursday, I’m home all alone, which means I have the sole responsibility of taking care of our little one. Some nights it’s okay because she’ll wake up only once to feed, but other nights are absolutely the worst. So, since my husband gets to be home Friday and Saturday nights, he takes over a feeding for me. Some nights, that turns into a full night’s rest for me! I’m hoping that’s the case this weekend!

Since I’m tired and pretty sore from working out hard this week, I’ve decided to make this Fit Friday’s workout a stretch. Everyone needs a good stretch from time to time, so why not start today? Plus, as you’ll see, these stretches have some added benefits, not just increasing flexibility.

Get to stretching! I know I will today!

Happy Friday!

Friday’s here! One step closer to the weekend!

I’ve got an abs workout for you today because, really, who doesn’t want a tighter and flatter tummy? I found it here.

This will only take you about 10 minutes, so it’s easy to add to your current routine. Or, you can follow the cardio and abs workout plan to create your own routine. Either way, work your abs!
