Two weeks ago, I blogged about my summer cardio workout routine. Well, talk about an epic fail–I kind of forgot about the whole, “You should ease into a new workout,”kind of reality. You see, I attempted to go back to doing my own post pregnancy workout routine and realized that after taking about a year off from consistent exercise, one should (key word) ‘gradually’ increase cardio activity. I also forgot that I’m not 20 anymore… Sigh.
Leggings that Motivate
After realizing this, I’m not gonna lie, I became a bit discouraged. I thought of every excuse to avoid working out–I even thought of calling it quits all together. That is until I found the leggings that give life! While cruising the Free People website, I stumbled upon their incredible fitness line and spotted these gorgeous wrap up/turn out leggings. Well, I actually forgot I owned these, and even DIY’ed a pair back in the day before purchasing the real deal. After pairing these beauties with my pink North Face sports bra and new Nikes from Kohl’s… I had me an awesome ‘Fitness Outfit of the Day,’ as well as new motivation! Besides, how else was I going to show off this awesome look?!
If you’re wanting to modify my post pregnancy cardio routine from my last Work it out Wednesday post, simply swap out your running for a brisk walk, and replace your sprint with a power walk. I would recommend this modified version for at least two weeks before testing out the original version of this routine. Let me know how it goes, and feel free to comment after trying it out!
