Work it Girl Wednesday and a LINKUP

12:00 AM





Top and Pants:  TJ Maxx

If you stay tuned to this Saturday I will have another workout series for at home workouts but for today’s post I wanted to share at home workouts that I’ve already posted for Shape Up Saturday posts in the past.  Before we get into that can we please just talk about these workout pants?  For a while now I’ve been saying I want to finally be allowed to wear my workout pants to the office because they are just so comfortable.  I don’t know what it is but they are even more comfortable than leggings.  I’m also not about to hop on the Lularoe bandwagon.  I don’t know why but it doesn’t seem appealing to me.  Yes, call me crazy and don’t all try to convince me at once lol.  I think it’s also because a lot of people tell that you can’t buy just one pair and I currently am not going to pay $20+ to buy ONE pair of leggings.  Ok, end rant lol.  On my last workout clothes shopping spree (I get most of my stuff from TJ Maxx online) I found these.  I knew I had to have them.  When I tried them on at home I realized, holy moly I can wear these as regular pants to work.  Needless to say, I got away with wearing them at work!  I wear them more on Fridays because it’s more casual.  I think I’ve actually worn these more as regular leggings, than actually working out in them haha.

The one thing that I love about the 21 day fix program and any Beach Body programs in general is they are all done at home.  I know some people say that they aren’t as motivated to work out at home as opposed to going to the gym.  Now, that’s not everyone though.  When I first started this journey I could barely run in place for more than 10 seconds without getting out of breathe.  At home workouts were the way to go for me.  I also joined kickboxing but this is something I was comfortable with since I did Kickboxing when I was younger and actually have a brown belt in it.  That was easy for me.  Actually going to a gym though, I wouldn’t even know where to start.  That’s why I followed the DVD’s and learned how to burn fat and build muscle.  I was also really self conscious because of my size.  I thought I was going to be THAT girl that everyone looks at and thinks “yea, she REALLY needs to lose some weight.”  I also didn’t want anyone to see me struggling.  I struggled so hard in the beginning.  I would be a sweaty mess within 5 minutes. 

I really do love my at home workouts and love finding new ways to work out at home.  It’s a little rough sometimes because the dogs like to “help” their mama work out.  And I mean help as in lay on my mat the entire time while I have to do planks above a dog.  There was also one time where Zero decided she was going to lick my face off while I was doing workouts on the ground.  I had to sacrifice my eyebrows lol aka she licked my face so much she licked my eyebrow makeup off.  Alright, let’s get into some of my favorite at home workouts.  I’ve linked these back to each of their posts.  I will start preseason for my next online challenge group next week so if you are interested in participating please email me mejmoda@gmail.com for more details!  Also, don’t forget to link up below!

  1. Those leggings look amazing! My dog does the same thing when I work out. She adds extra resistance or she "counts" by barking or growling playfully. It is so funny.

  4. I love working out at a gym and taking classes because it pushes me harder than I would push myself but having the at home option is always nice.

I wish I was more motivated to do at-home workouts so I'm definitely someone who needs to go to the gym...I also love going to classes when someone tells me what I need to do lol!
