Shake that derrière!
I’m going against all of my natural winter’s instincts of hibernation and sloth-like-existenceness, and pursuing
ripped buffness shedding those extra few pounds. I generally get those strange looks, that’s not abnormal, but my exercise regime works for me. Saturday mornings and Sunday evenings, and a couple other gym classes/running/dance classes thrown in during the week for good measure.
It’s all about finding a routine that works for you. I’ve found two gym classes I absolutely adore, Nuffield’s All Over Body Workout on a Saturday morning (10.30am, not too early, it is the weekend after all – but not too late you still have the whole rest of the day), and Body Balance on a Sunday evening. Balance is great for clearing your head of the week’s stresses, (kinda!) ready to start all over again on Monday morning. During the week? I try and go every other day, but I’m not too precious. I don’t dictate to myself what I have to do, if I fancy a spinning class, I’ll go spinning, if I want to get those lovely endorphins flowing and challenge the lungs, I’ll go running, if I want something a little calmer and re-stretch those muscles, I’ll go to another Body Balance class.
The point being, I don’t set myself into a routine I’m going to get bored of. Whatever exercise I fancy on the day is what I’ll go and do. Mix it up a little, as long as you’re regularly moving that body of yours, it’s better that spending every night sat on the sofa right? And don’t get me wrong, I
love LOVE my sofa day’s, but I don’t feel guilty ever for having them. They’re my down time, not the norm.
Having said that, if someone wants to give my a shot of motivation for tonights class and wake up my sleepy head, I’d be eternally grateful 😉
