Workouts I Am Not Really Working Out

They say that to lose weight you have to control your diet and workout.

Exercise and working out gives you a healthy mind-set, toned body, beautiful glow, reverses aging, improves and strengthens memory, etc etc.

In my quest to workout to lose eight I started watching these workouts.

I did followed these once, twice or thrice but ended up flopping on the floor before building my stamina or getting a toned body back.

But I love, love these workouts as they are easy to do (much more easy to watch) and do help if you follow them for at least a week.

In my case I ended up watching these daily as a ritual instead of working out.

I thought I would share them so maybe someone else do workout instead of just watching these workouts.

Workout 1:

It’s a 7 minute workout that targets your abs and aims to get rid of belly fat within 10 days. I didn’t tried for 10 days but I do know it makes you really stretch and bend. Let’s see if someone does and what the results are for them.

Workout 2:

if you want to sweat like crazy this is the workout!!! It aims for  five rounds but I flopped in round one after mountain climbers, while doing bur-pees. So I did 2 rounds of high knees and mountain climbers and I love mountain climbers as long as my hands don’t hurt. Ouch!

Workout 3:

This one’s great if you’re a total beginner. It helped me correct many postures of mine. Remember wrong postures increases damage and decreases efficiency.

Workout 4:

This workout is my favourite nowadays. Really good for lazy butts like me. I am getting lazier day by day. I think I will lose some laziness if I do workout instead of just watching these workouts.

 

It’s like I am not motivated enough. What about you? How do you motivate yourself to stay fit and to workout? Curious and eager to know, seriously!

Have you tried any of these? Do you follow a workout regimen? What’s that? Share below to motivate others and stay motivated.

The Imbalances Of Life

It seems that whenever life gets busy, we stop doing what we want to do for ourselves or the things that gives us pleasure.

We think that this pattern will help us reduce busyness and we will have lesser things and a bit more time. In-fact, we achieve the opposite of this thought-pattern by neglecting ourselves and our passions.

Looking Back To My Passions

With various responsibilities and studies consuming most of my day I usually find it hard to survive at times. At the end of the day I look back, sigh and shift my leftover to-do’s to my to-do list for the next day. Amongst such business when I found my sewing journal at my mother’s place I was overwhelmed with mixed emotions. My love, my passion, my hobbies that refreshed and reinvented me, that make me grow and feel satisfied, that allowed my creative spark to ignite, that have made me proud(kind of ) at my creations have taken a back seat.

Journey to passions
Passions

It had been soooo long since I last gave time to my passions to rebuild myself and relax and ready to face life’s challenges.

Here’s the memory lane of my passions, hope you enjoy.
