Yikes! It’s been a while since the last check-in, uh? How is everyone doing on the fitness and health tip? Are we incorporating more greens? Drinking more water? Making healthier swaps? And uh…I can’t believe we haven’t talked about fitness yet!
Along with changing my diet, I have also been quite the gym rat for the past 2 years. There is a gym right on my condo’s property. It’s free and has treadmills, bikes, and free/machine weights. I used to hit the gym EVERY morning but now I’m going at least 3-5 times a week.
And at the crack of dawn too…
That’s right. I hit the gym at 6:00 in the morning. Because working out after work is SO not an option. But not working out is not an option either. Sheesh!
Even when I don’t head to the gym, I still need to get some kind of work-out in. Yoga is a MUST for me every morning and evening. I’ll go into more detail about that later but in the meantime, try the Sun Salutation here. Another way I get some good cardio and stretching in is by pulling out my Fit Deck cards.
Please tell me y’all have heard about Fit Deck before. No? They rock! They are a customized deck of exercise cards that give you little work-outs to do. I’ve got the Core Blast but they have many other deck options to choose from. So whether you sit at a desk all day, are expecting a baby or a teacher who wants to get your kids to move around a bit, these deck of cards will find a way to get you moving.
Take for example, the Vertical Scissor exercise.
I have a ridiculous obsession with ab work-outs so when I draw my 5-cards a day, this baby always manages to find its way in there. This card not only shows me WHAT this exercise will work out, but it gives me a picture and detailed instructions.
And you can go at your own pace when it comes to reps.
When it comes to this one, I usually do 5 sets of 10. And then I pass out. The deck also includes information cards that can help you work out certain areas of the body. In this instance, stretching the lower body…
I like to toss them in my travel bag so I don’t make any excuses for not working out. Pretty cool, uh? They start at $9.95 and they even have decks for seniors, kids and for Yoga. Ohh, Mommy…I want that one! Learn more about Fit Deck here.
