Today was the first day of my payday weekend- yippee! My first paycheque from my new job- the first full time job I’ve had in over 2 years!!
I bought this Black Cotton Spandex Bodysuit with a low back from American Apparel- love it! It should look great with all my high waisted skirts and trousers. I just need to find a bra that’s going to work with this.I also bought this lovely lightweight white cashmere vest from Topshop- this is now the third one I own- the others are in black and baby blue. Perfect for exercise and sunshine!
Carrying on with my workout purchases I also got these cute Nike Gym Vintage shorts- all my other workout trousers are capris but thought a pair of shorts would be good for my visits to the physio and for those Tracy Anderson exercises where you need to hold to the ball at the back of your knee to get a bit more grip.
And finally I bought these monochrome flower/triangled Nike Epic Run Printed Tights/Capris. I’m wearing my capris every day to cycle to and from work in and to exercise in so I thought I could afford myself another pair.
I was good and managed to get my muscular structure done before we travelled to the airport for our 3 day get away to Paris. Cardio wise once we got to Paris we did lots of walking so that ticked off my requirement of going for an hour’s walk when dance cardio wasn’t possible. We had a massive meal so in a bid to try and burn it off, as well as a very long walk I did Tracy Anderson Sky and Tracy Anderson E! Gwyneth Legs- I can’t find the video for this online, if anyone can- let me know!!
Day 2 I woke up feeling unbelievably achey from the exercise the day before, we went out shopping briefly to buy these gorgeous shoes and while outside I was coughing and sneezing constantly and my neck was in agony, despite lemsips and resting I felt pretty ill and fragile for the rest of the day so I didn’t get any exercise done.
Day 3. After a long night’s sleep I felt a lot better. I’m avoiding going out in the cold at the time being to avoid getting ill again so I wasn’t able to go for any walks- I’m unable to do any cardio where I am at the moment as there’s no space and I don’t want to make a lot of noise in the house so I planned on going for walks to make up for it. I did almost all my muscular structure bar Tracy Anderson Score Sexy Cleavage as I felt pretty warn out, but earlier on I did Tracy Anderson Glutecentric exercises as a little bonus add on. Today I completed day 10 of Tracy Anderson Health so next time I exercise I’ll add in some new exercises to fill up the time that that routine would’ve filled.
My boyfriend’s new years resolution is to get a six pack, he came over yesterday and is very motivated to exercise so this gave me a great opportunity to force myself to do a full exercise routine. He went for a run so it was only right that in that time I did 30 minutes dance cardio. Why is it always so hard?! I think the only way to stay good at dance cardio is to do it every single day, with muscular structure work I can pretty much do any routine no matter how much of a break I’ve given myself, but with dance cardio my stamina is constantly diminishing. I did quite a bit of jumping around, but because my room is cold I could feel my shins start to hurt so I had to resort to step touching, even so I managed to sweat quite a bit and it’s better then not doing anything at all. I then did the whole of my new routine, me and my bf did the abs sections together and he did other sit ups, push ups and blokey exercises while I carried on. I really enjoyed it however my legs are really aching today. I think it’s a combo of the dance cardio/100 plies from A Hot Body at Any Age. I think it’s great that my boyfriend is motivated to exercising now so hopefully that’ll keep me going.
