For The Fellas… “Broga”

This is mostly hilarious to me, but if it helps people find a comfortable way to exercise, I am all for it…

Introducing BROGA (as described on their website):

Broga is a yoga class geared for men (where it’s okay if you can’t touch your toes).

Strong, energetic,and challenging, Broga combines the best core-strengthening, muscle-toning, cardio-working, stress-reducing, clarity-enhancing yoga postures with functional fitness exercises for an amazing workout.

You’ll get that pumped-up feeling you get from working out and a deep flexibility and relaxation feeling from “working in.”

If you’ve already been to a class, we’ll see you again soon. If not, you’ll thank yourself for making the effort to show up. Good music, cool vibe, all are welcome.

It’s your move. Get “real. fit.”©

The REAListic Challenge…

 

 

Thanks to Pinterest, I came across a great blog this morning, {all that i have sown}.  I am committing to this challenge and I hope that you will too…  (The only thing I would change is that I feel that it should apply to both men and women):

 

 

 

The REAListic Beauty and Fitness Challenge

  • I will embrace a REAListic view of womanly beauty
  • I will not speak negatively about my body
  • I will not speak negatively about another woman’s body
  • I will restrict media containing unrealistic or unhealthy portrayals of the female body
  • I will strive to be a good example of REAListic beauty (inside and out) to my daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, friend, etc.
  • I will commit to a REAListic fitness goal
  • I will share my commitment with others and allow them to keep me accountable
  • I will encourage my sisters in their fitness goals
  • I will exercise for health and wellness
  • I will eat a healthy amount of food (this is NOT about dieting)
If you join me you are NOT committing to walk or run a 10K. You are not committing to a diet plan. You are not committing to buy up the Nike store and run your butt off every morning. You are simply 1) committing to a goal, 2) refusing to think or speak negatively about your body, and 3) trying to be a good role model.

No Gym Membership???

 

 

You do not have to belong to a gym in order to get a good workout.

I am listing three workout routines from Health.com that you can use to whip yourself into shape:

30-Minute Workout, No Gym Required

5 Weeks to Your Best Body Ever

The Beach Body Workout

There are MANY other resources for at-home workouts.  If you know of a great workout, please let me know…

Open Challenge For February!!!

I am challenging myself (and all of you) to give up Fast Food and Fried Food for the month of February!!!

Rules:

  • You cannot eat anything from a restaurant with a drive-thru or in a food court (McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, etc.)
  • No gas station/convenience store food (anything under a heat lamp or prepared and in a cooler)
  • Nothing deep-fried (regardless of where it is from)
  • If you have any doubts about whether or not something is “fast food”, then it probably isn’t something you should eat.

I’ll be checking in all month regarding my progress, I would love to hear from you too!!!

Challenge…

 

This weekend is going to be a challenge to my plan.  My sister is visiting and we like to eat in restaurants; lay around and watch movies; and drink alcohol.  All of these things are NOT on my plan.

I will be working on MODERATION this weekend.

Update on Monday 🙂
