Hollahhhh! That was my best attempt at a ghetto-riffic greeting. I think i failed. Its ok though. I secretly think im Beyonce or Eminem sometimes. Its all about attitude people! Or at least fake it till you make it ;)
Anywho.. I’ve gotten a few emails about people asking me to post my workout routine.
I had to pause for a moment before laughing. Im pretty sure my gym card has dust on it, and the closest ive gotten to excessive physical activity is doing laps around the mall, walking up the escalator (im a bad ass) and parking in the spot FARTHEST away from where ever im going. Its the little things people..
Now.. i used to be a pretty avid elliptical-er. And then my ipod broke, i got lazy, and got tired of getting hit on at the gym. Does that bother anyone else??! Like.. im sweaty, i have on no makeup, my hair looks like Pebbles from the Flintstones, and im trying to focus. This is not the time to engage in conversation and “flirt”. #GoAwayPlease
So i moved the elliptical in my house to the living room. Genius right?! Tivo, a fan, no annoying smelly people… except then my mom came home. And was not amused. Apparently a big black machine does not go with the carefully designed living room she has created. #Fail
Then! I got a mini trampoline. Even better. I can roll it into the living room, and roll it out when im done.. except people think its weird to spend hours bouncing back and forth while watching Lifetime movies and episodes of Ellen. #ICantWin
So Finally! i got a membership at a dance fitness studio. Loved it. I had the unlimited membership so i could go and take as many classes in a row as i wanted. Yoga Booty Ballet, Zumba, Bollywood, Boot Camp. Super fun. And I've danced my entire life so it was a win win. Except there were two problems that arose...
1- i never really felt like i got in a real workout. I could spend 6 hours there taking classes but then felt like i needed to go to the gym after.
2- Once i started working full time, i always work nights and early mornings. The only time i had to actually take classes was like 3am-6am or 7pm-9pm. Both time slots the studio is either closed, or only has one class i could take. #Womp
I know a lot of people would say i could do videos or what not, but those bore me. And my living room is not that big. Plus i have room mates who already think im weird (Please reference the mini trampoline).
So to answer your question. I really dont “exercise”. I walk a lot, ride my bike, take the long route around target, work my legs by swinging at the park (no im not joking, its one of my favorite places to be) And i go out dancing.
-Nature walks (who am i kidding, i live in the city.. this was a one time thing).
-My sweet bike (im pretty sure its around here some where…)
But in all seriousness, my main form of working it out. Is Dancing.
**Note the amazing editing skills on this picture.. and then i learned to always wear leggings. ;)
Is it just me or does everyone make weird faces while dancing? I blame the photographer for catching me off guard…. ;)
Its what i grew up doing =)
*And as much as i didnt want to add this picture due to embarrassment.. i had to. Look at my face! Contrary to popular belief i am not in pain. Im actually quite enjoying myself. I think i was just dizzy from our triple spin..
**How do YOU work it out?**
