8 Count Lunge and Squat

By | February 26th, 2015|Booty|

I don't deny or hide my love for booty exercises. I mean, I like having a nice little bump, but I'm not trying to have the saggy crease line that we often see being offered up as "sexy." Um, no thanks. That's not a fit booty. I'll pass! LOL Pay close attention to how he [...]

Building A Home Workout Routine: Reverse Crunches

By | January 20th, 2015|Abs, Building A Home Workout Routine|

When I first started working out, I joined a gym. It was awesome - open 24hrs with security, awesome facilities, and two personal trainers (a married couple, in their late 50s - I know, I was mad too) who owned and operated it. The gentleman was the one who showed me around his facility. First [...]

The Reverse Crunch

By | November 3rd, 2014|Abs, Booty, Building A Home Workout Routine, Legs|

Never mind the adorable girl showing off the exercise, but pay close attention to the instructions, here. I find that it took me a while to focus doing this exercise. You have to be careful that you're not just swinging your legs back and forth, that you're really working muscle groups with this one! I [...]

Standing Oblique Twists

When you think of your obliques, think of the love handle area. Give it a little TLC, and I'm sure you'd be surprised by what comes up! :)

Building a Home Workout Routine: Jump Rope!

By | September 16th, 2014|Building A Home Workout Routine, Cardio|

A big part of burning fat is cardiovascular exercise (also lovingly known as cardio.) The most toned muscles in the world will never be seen if there's a thick layer of fat covering them, you know? I deal with this right now - trying to get rid of the last bits of fat that I [...]

Double Leg Lifts

By | August 19th, 2014|Abs, Building A Home Workout Routine, Legs|

Another big thing for my figure is working on these thighs! One of the slight downfalls - among all the blessings - with a major weight loss is the need to tone to make sure that the skin comes back into place... and has a nice place to come home to, if you know what [...]

Straight Leg Crunches

By | July 22nd, 2014|Abs, Building A Home Workout Routine|

I'm always asked to spill my ab exercises - by one persistent visitor in particular *waving to Tracy* - so I figured, why not? This section of the site serves as a directory for me as much as it does for you. I'd like to go exercise shopping, too! LOL Here are the straight leg [...]

Squats

By | July 10th, 2014|Booty, Building A Home Workout Routine, Legs|

The most important part of squats is getting the form right - the movement (much like any exercise) is designed to cater specifically to a set of muscles, and the only way to ensure that you'll see results is if you make sure you're working the right muscles. That comes from doing the movement right! [...]

Building A Home Workout Routine: The Side Bend

By | June 12th, 2014|Abs, Arms, Building A Home Workout Routine|

If you're looking to tone those sides up, give the side bend a shot: I do 4 sets of 30 about 3 times a week. They help me keep my curves in check even though I'm losing weight at the same time. :) Be happy, be healthy! :)

Yoga: Lotus Link

By | April 8th, 2014|Building A Home Workout Routine, Yoga|

Did you know that you could get in a good 150 calorie burn doing Yoga in a nice warm room for a half hour? Why, yes! Yes, you can! Give the "Lotus Link" a shot!

Hammer Bicep Curls

By | February 21st, 2014|Arms|

If you don't have dumbbells, get innovative - grab a gallon jug, put a few cups of water in that bad boy and get to work! Where do you begin? I started with three sets of ten, which means I would do ten of these moves at a time, three different times with maybe 30 [...]

Seated Calf Raise

By | January 22nd, 2014|Legs|

You don't need the dumbbells or the ball to get it in, but they'll definitely help!

Overhead Dumbbell Press

By | January 22nd, 2014|Arms|

Need another exercise for those gallon jugs? Try the overhead dumbbbell press. I love the definition these helped me develop in my shoulders and chest as well as my arms - I'd never seen this on my body before, and I was excited to finally have it. Again, if you can only do a couple [...]

Yoga: Half Moon

Give the Half Moon sequence a shot, and see how good you feel afterwards!
