Fitness Friday - Week 13

Hi loves! This week was full of surprises (I'll get to that in a moment). :D It is now April and Easter is almost here! Yay!! How did you do on last week's challenge? Let me know in the comments below!!

Saturday I went on a 3 mile walk. On Monday I went on a 5 mile walk. Of course every walk I go on is an experience. Let me tell you what happened. So, I'm walking and minding my own business when it comes to interfering with nature. Next thing you know I look down and on my black pants is a GINORMOUS bumblebee (the size of a quarter, perhaps larger) just sitting on my leg. It was black, yellow, and fuzzy- the horror... the sheer horror. I proceeded to swat my leg with my jacket (the bee fell off) and then frantically run away like a crazy person while waving my jacket in the air. Not one of my most attractive moments. I was definitely scarred by that moment. I think it was my perfume that attracted it to me. My perfume wasn't floral though, so who knows. 

Anyways, I have a tip for you when you go walking. Wear hiking shoes because they are heavier than lightweight running/walking shoes. It will help you define your legs much faster. An alternative to this is to just wear ankle weights. Start off easy though! Don't assume you can do five pounds on each leg starting off. That could be disastrous when you wake up the next day basically bedridden (which isn't the point of working out). haha

Today I went to Barre Buns. It probably was not the best idea due to my hip. I had to modify some of the exercises. Sometimes I need to remind myself that I am not currently a Rockette, so high kicking isn't in my best interest at the moment.


For those of you who couldn't do last week's challenge (aka moi - although Barre Buns is somewhat similar), you are in luck! I am extending the challenge another week. For those of you who did it, do it again! It is really good to form habits when it comes to exercise. For those of you who didn't do it, this is your chance! Here are the links: 

Workout #2: Awesome Abs Workout
Workout #4: Bomb Butt Workout

To challenge yourself even further, use ankle weights when performing the Lovely Legs Workout and the Bomb Butt Workout!! If you don't own any, go outside and perform the workouts with hiking shoes (or your heaviest pair of athletic shoes). Adding that extra resistance will really work your muscles and help you define your legs and butt faster! 
What do you think about this challenge? Let me know in the comments below!!
