Staying Fit At Home 

Standard
Staying Fit At Home 

So tomorrow is the day that I attempt to climb my first crack at the gym. I don’t know why but I’m a little nervous. I know I shouldn’t be because it’s in a gym and it’s my first time. I think it’s more of the fact that I don’t know how to fail. If I ever can’t acomplish a rout it eats away at me until I finish it. And I always do finish it with some practice. I guess I will just have to see if I can acomplish myself tomorrow. After all, the saying is true, “it’s not the wall we conquer but ourselves”.

Today was quit the busy day for me so I didn’t get a chance to go to the gym so I had to work out at home. Today I focused mainly on lower body.

Here is the aquipment I use a home:

 

Rock rings, a weighted vest, wrist/ankle weights, standard weights and a kettle bell. I also have some yoga supplies and a few resistance straps not photographed.

With the rock rings I do different pull ups, dead hangs and ab exercises with the weighted vest on. I also do sit ups and push ups with the weighted vest on and will even go for a quick jog while wearing it. When doing ab work outs at home I like to get 5-7 different floor ab exercises and do each one for a minute each. I will sometimes repeat this depending on what else I am doing or trying to focus on.

 

After exercising I will often have a protein shake or a meal containing high protein. I am big into Herbalife and swear by their products. I have two protein shakes a day, a high protein snack and a healthy meal. Tonight I made grilled chicken and it was delicious!

 

I used the Herbalife chicken soup mix to make a sauce containing 16grams of protein. Instead of adding a cup of water to the soup mix I added half of a cup to make it a thick and creamy sauce.  I then topped it off with fresh chives and a sprinkle of pepper and paprika. It was a good, high protein meal, and made me feel good after a little at home work out!
