Le workout routine

Hi Guys,
Its a brand new week! Yaaaaay!!! Ok I normally don't like Mondays because I'm bad like that. I know. But for some reason, I'm happy today. I hope nothing and no one spoils my day today. I hope its the same for you too.

So I think I finally found a workout routine I can live with. I've never had to incorporate workouts in my life because I've always been a perfect size 8 until recently, though I was unhealthy. After a recent phase of depression, I ballooned to an unhealthy 75 kg on my tiny frame and it dawned on me that I was on my way to a major catastrophe. With my defined waist gradually disappearing, I knew I needed to act fast. These are my major reasons for getting in shape:
      *I have a history of diabetes and high blood pressure in my family.
      *I want to be as healthy as possible and live long :)
      *I want to complement my boyfriend abeg. I don't want to be the fat blob walking beside a trim dude and people would be like 'what duh......'
Anyways, I started trying to eat healthy about 3 weeks ago, and I incorporated exercises last week. I am not dieting because I don't believe in diets. I believe in making healthy lifestyle changes because I don't like yo-yo weight gain/ loss. Currently I am taking the exercises a little at a time, trying to get my body to adjust. So I do 10- 15 minutes of lunges, jumping jacks, calf raises and marching on the spot each day. These should do for now. As my body gets used to them, I will switch up routines and increase exercise time to 20 minutes.

basically I do the first half of this ie I stop at jumping jacks. Teak sent me this routine :)

When I work out, I always listen to some music by Yanni. To me, Yanni can do no wrong. He gets me in tune spiritually/ emotionally, and this creates some kind of harmony/ balance I love, but I'm yet to understand. Typically, I will work out in my birthday suit (hhehehehehe), with Looking glass and Walkabout by Yanni on repeat. And I try to imagine the flabs melting away :D.


I hope all my efforts pay off in the long run though because my thighs hurt like mad and my thighs cant stop aching. My best friend Teak says its only temporary and I believe him (yea, he's a fitness nut).

Please I would love to know how you work out. Share with me in them comments :) Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week.
