7/15 workouts

9/2- 16K steps, 37 flights of stairs
9/3- 16K steps, 78 flights of stairs
9/4- 19K steps, 86 flights of stairs
9/7- 25 minutes yoga
9/8- 30 minutes yoga
9/9- 4 hour hike (10 miles)
9/10- 2 hours of digging with a pick and shovel

I've decided I'm going to start counting some of my non-traditional workouts. Yesterday I didn't get to do a traditional workout, but my husband and I were working at the new house and he needed the area for the front steps to our porch dug out and so he handed me a pick and shovel. So I was swinging the pick, scooping up heavy dirt and rocks, and lifting the really big rocks out by hand. I figure that has to be a workout! Fitbit says I got 10,541 steps in too.

I have until this Friday to make my goal (will be on vacay the rest of Sept), and I only need 3 more workouts to get there. I'm right on schedule with where I wanted to be at this point. The only problem is I have a brutal sinus infection. I'm hesitant to do any exercising for a while, bc I fear the huffing and puffing while I'm a phlegm-filled monster could irritate my lungs (lovely asthma) and then morph this infection into bronchitis as well. And ain't nobody got time for that!

I'll play it be ear in case I feel much better, but I'll most likely not be doing any Beachbody workouts this week.

Default I'm New! 😋

Hello everyone, im new and is looking for support and want to give support to others. I'm 30 old and always had a decent body. I'm a thick girl and always had fat in the right places but this year from January 2017 to now I gain 40 pounds and now weight 192lb from stress and depression. 09/01/2017 I started my own workout plan. Which is 4 times a week, working on my legs, thighs, stomach and butt. I started the first two weeks slow by not putting too much on my body early. Each day out of the 4 days I do squads, sit ups, biking, lunges and thigh exercise. Every Sunday I take pictures of the areas that im working on and so far after two weeks I'm seeing some results, very little but I see some chg.
Here's the breakdown:
Week 3 of September
4 days a week (random days) I add 10 counts on each of my exercises each week.
Stomach- 50 situps and 50 crunches
Thighs and butt - 50 squats, 2min bicycle, 35 lunges each leg, 20 jumping squads. Dancing once a week for 30 mins.

I do not have a diet and my intake of food have not change. I still eat what ever I want. However the amount of food I eat has change. I don't eat as much since my appetite has decrease, I guess because of my muscles in my stomach is tightening up. Lastly I'm consuming more water than soda and juice than ever. Im trying to tightening up my fat more than losing it.

Please know that this is not my first time doing this, did this once before when I gain so much weight because of birth control and did this. The results was successful and I loved my body, it was hard and took long but i did it and is trying again and would appreciate any support. Thank you

I think it's smart to listen to your body, for sure!

I felt well enough to do the short BBL workout today. After not exercising at all for 4 days, and spending most of those days resting, it felt so good to exercise!

I'm more congested now after the workout than I was before it. So I'll have to see how this plays out before I'll know if I can exercise tomorrow too.
