At the start of the year, I mentioned that one of my immediate goals for 2011 is to get back into exercising once again. And that's what I've been doing lately. I've gone back to exercising, slowly but surely. While I think that my body is ready for more strenuous workouts, I pace myself to make sure that I'm not doing damage to my body.
I'm not aiming to be reed thin. My goal is basically to get rid of unwanted fats I gained from the past year that I wasn't able to regularly exercise. I mainly want to go back to my old and normal lifestyle when my food intake is proportional to my physical activities.
Other than going back to my usual lifestyle, getting fit would be futile without some goals and here are mine:
(1) lose 3 kilos
(2) go back to having a waistline of at least 27 inches
(3) get used to exercising regularly
And I hope to achieve all those in three months.
There are so many exercise programs to choose from but since I know my body well, I'll share with you some of my ways of getting fit.
Exercise Gadgets. an Elliptical Strider, a skipping rope (not in photo), light hand weights and a hula hoop. Everyday I get on our Elliptical Strider and lift hand weights everyday for a 10-15 minutes. The hula hoop and skipping rope I do them once or twice a week only.
Brisk Walking. Monday to Friday, I average about 30-40 minutes of brisk walking. I love walking! Other than a source of physical activity, walking is also a spiritual thing for me.
Dance Workouts. I have a copy of the Crunch Cardio Dance Blast and I do this at least once or twice a week, usually on days when I don't have work. I love this DVD because the steps are easy to follow.
Wii Fit and Wii Just Dance. I use Wii Fit for my Yoga, Boxing, and Running exercises. For Wii Just Dance, obviously for dance exercises. These may just be simulated games via a console but I swear, they give me a good sweat after a few minutes.
So those are my basic physical activities in a week, my very own exercise programs! I vary my routine every time I exercise because I tend to get bored easily so I find it handy that I have exercise equipments, video games and dance videos that I choose from.
What about you? What are your exercise routines these days?
