Fit Butt, Tight Abs: Home Workout

Hi Everyone!

Today it was really tough for me to get motivated to do my workout. I felt tired, and I really wanted to take a nap, or lay down on the couch and finish the book I am reading. Mentally I knew that if I could just get started I would feel better, and re-gain my motivation. 

So I got up and went through this workout. Once I started moving I felt rejuvenated, and I wanted to keep going. As you can see by the goofy picture of me to the right I ended up having fun once I got myself going. I went through the workout three times, and then walked for 4 miles on the treadmill (while reading my book). 

I feel very blessed that I have learned to understand how much better exercise makes me feel. It has an immediate physical, and mental impact on me. If you are able to find out what it is that motivates you, it makes it much easier to stick to your workouts. For me, exercise is inherently rewarding because I feel happy and energized after workouts. I feel stronger, and more capable of handling anything that might come my way. For you it may be the same, or your motivation might come from something different. It’s so important to find what works for you. 

Today’s workout is challenging. It focuses on lower body (butt, thighs, legs), and core (abs, obliques, back). I use some weights, but this workout can also be done with body weight only. As always focus on form. 

I hope you guys enjoy the workout, and find your motivation!
Melissa
