Weekly Tone-Up

It's true. This week was the start of me getting back into the swing of things when it comes to working out. First trimester of pregnancy took it out of me, but now I'm back like Michael Jordan after he retired those three times. Plus, my chiropractor said I need to be a bit more active because I've been a bit "sedentary". Basically it was her nice, medical way of saying "time to stop being lazy." I received it.

So, to keep me accountable and to encourage some of you who are having a tough time being motivated to work out too, I thought it would be fun to show you some ways I've been keeping up my "non-sedentary" lifestyle. Every week I will post a couple of my favorite Pinterest work outs that make me feel the burn. I do these workouts in my home. It's my safe zone. This week is arms. Enjoy!

Fave arm workout #1: 

Oh my gah, in this one they make you do this thing where you hold out the weights for 30 seconds and I feel like my arms are going to burst. Seriously, breathe through it because it's awesome. 

Fave arm workout #2: 
Madonna's arms? Why not?

Fave arm workout #3:
My friend Cassi told me about this woman named Tracy Anderson. She's one of those that gets the celebs in shape. You guys, you're going to feel like a total nerd doing this video, but it's SO great! This  is one of those workouts that reminds me of why I do these in my house. 

Fave arm workout #4:

In this one our girl Tracy Anderson shows us how to get fashion-ready arms. It's not as hilarious as the video above, but it still kicks my butt. 

If you try any of these, let me know which one is your favorite! I would LOVE to do this with you! Also, here's a link to my Pinterest workout board. It has a ton more workouts that I love, but just didn't post here on the blog. Cheers to being non-sedentary!
