If some fitness blogs make you feel bad about yourself because they lead you to compare yourself to others and focus on the bodies of others, this fitness blog is perfect for you. This blog focuses on you! And it focuses on how you want to feel not about how you should look. 👇🏻
Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor, and arms by your sides. Your feet should be about hip-distance apart with your heels a few inches away from your butt. Push through your heels to lift your hips up while squeezing your glutes. Try to create one diagonal line from your shoulders to your knees. Pause for 1-2 seconds, then lower back down. Be careful that you’re not overextending your low back, Stokes says. “Think about tucking your tailbone, activating your glutes, and lifting 4 to 5 inches off the ground.” Slowly lower back down to the ground.
I’m sad to say that for the past 2.5 weeks I haven’t been super keto(higher carb intake). I think it’s part to do with my small vacation and the fact that I started in a new department at work and it’s throwing me off with a crazy schedule. I did go grocery shopping, exercise and meal prep a bit today. It was my first day off in 7 days so I needed to take the time to catch up with my needs. Also, I have inspired my boyfriend’s mom and my best friend to lose weight and they have been successful so far! Lastly, I have still been paying for my gym membership for the few months that I’ve been exercising at home, but tomorrow I’m gonna start going back. Exercise is like anything else… sometimes you just need to change it up. Here’s to not beating myself up and getting back on track. 🤗
