So, the other night I went out to buy a new swim suit for our little staycation that's coming up next week. We will be staying in La Jolla, the MIL is graciously watching the babes. We are also planning on a day to explore Catalina Island. I needed a new suit, obviously, so I can look amazing in my pics for the blog right? Well, I really dont know why I do this to myself. Trying on swim suits, has GOT to be the most eye opening thing ever. Wanna know where your problem spots are? Go try on some swim suits or lingerie. Ugh. I found some suits I really loved, most of them did NOT love me back. Since having babes, I have def felt the tushie and legs go a little softer, the hips are a bit wider, thighs closer and buns a little droopier. Trust me, I just saw it, yesterday. Anyway after buying my suit and trying to not feel super depressed, I decided something has to be done! The top half of me looks alright, alright as in, the babes sure sucked the life outta me, if you know what I mean, but my arms are ok and the waist ain't too. bad, but the bottom half... Depression City. Supposedly, women carry more fat on the lower half of their bodies, even if you lose weight, you still could have less toned legs, if they arent worked out properly. Lovely... I know the part about being skinny but still having sub par bottom half, is totally me now. I don't want to do this, but just to keep myself accountable I am going to post a picture. Yikes.
I originally took this picture NEVER with the intent of posting it on the internet. But there I am, in all my post baby body glory. I started thinking about all the logical ways one would work out their legs. I could get a bike. Scratch that, let's be realistic, I could run up and down my stairs, not happening. I could get that eliptical ive been eyeing, but i dont really have the benjamins to shell out for that right now. Then I started looking online for ideas. How to tone your legs, fast. Ah-ha, jump roping. Now, that I can do. I pulled out my jumprope that I bought like almost 8yrs ago, when I worked out all the time and had all the time in the world to myself.... Before kids, obviously. I saw a quick 10min jump roping work out sesh. Psh, I can do that. I remember in 3rd I used to jump rope the whole recess. I can so do this, like everyday...I thought to myself. Here's the workout.
I just want results, and I know results take commitment. So, I'm giving it a go. Honestly, you don't even have to do these exercises, just jumprope. So, what tips and tricks do you have? Whats your fav workout for the lower region? I'd love to hear it.
