My Workout Routine

Hi Everyone!

Who's ready for the summer? Certainly not me! Im actually in Rhodes as you are reading this and I have still not managed to reach my goal figure :( I am giving myself up until September this year to get a lean and toned body. Come on guys, we can do it!

My workout routine is quite simple. I usually stretch for 5 minutes and then do some burpees to warm up. Then I drink some water. Make sure you have plenty by your side to keep yourself hydrated.

Then I grab my weights, I'm currently using 2.5lbs in each hand. I do all sorts of arm exercises which I don't exactly know how to explain?? Just your average lift up above my head and then put them back down.

Then I do squats. Around 3-4 sets of 50. I know it seems like a lot but I'm trying to tone up my legs and butt ASAP.  
I then add 2 sets of 10 lunges. I hate doing lunges the most, they really hurt my calves and make my legs tremble, but that's how I can tell that what I'm doing is actually working.

I add a few more arm exercises with the weights until they feel numb. Usually 2 sets of 15 as my arms are quite weak and I am gradually trying to improve my strength.

I then hop onto the cross trainer for 10 minutes on level 8. this KILLS ME. It makes me want to cry but I know that once I have a hot shower or bath and my muscles will relax that I'd feel 10000 times better.

Last but not least, I do crunches and sit ups. Worst part of the whole workout. I get tired from this really easily as my body holds the majority of fat on my stomach! I don't like my figure because of my stomach as I don't have a defined waist and just go straight down from the waist to my legs. There is NOTHING wrong with this figure, but I dislike it on myself as it makes it really hard to find jeans and shorts that fit me well as my waist and stomach are bigger than my hips and legs.

After my workout is done I do a few stretches and drink loads of water before hopping in the shower.

How do you stay fit? Are there any tips you could give me?

Lots of love,
