This was after one of my bootcamp classes!
I decided to skip the last yoga class today in favor of doing a plank workout and elliptical.
I used this guide on Shape for my plank workout. Planks are actually one of my favorite moves! Which reminds me of a talk I had with a classmate that also regularly goes to the rec center, about which exercises we like and dislike...and of course it's different for everyone! Here is a small list of my preferences:
Like: planks, lunges, russian twist with medicine ball, cycle/spin, zumba
Dislike: push ups, burpees, jogging/running
When I got home I really felt like having a smoothie, and wanted to try a recipe I bookmarked from Fitness magazine.
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup berries (I used frozen strawberries)
2 tsp honey
It was good, but I think I'm going to stick with my usual blend: 1 banana, 100% pom juice, frozen berries/peaches/mango and spinach. The coconut milk just doesn't deliver the taste I want from a smoothie, hahaha!
I am still feel like I'm at the beginning of my fitness/health journey, but with resources like blogs, pinterest and magazines I gain more motivation.
