A couple of weeks ago I put together random workouts from Pinterest to see if they were a.) effective and b.) if I could do it. I paired up with my soon to be SIL and friend Mindy....I have to say what I liked about these workouts is you could go at your own pace. You do not have to be in training, you can have some experience or be a newbie. I am going to share a few of them through out the next month I hope that you get something out of them....just as we did.
I found this workout on Pinterest and thought....naaa this is way to easy to be effective or even feel like it is working....boy I was wrong. This needs to be part of your daily workout not just one part but it is very effective for removing bulky thighs, fat pockets, and toning up the inner thigh. No one wants to see their legs jiggle in shorts or skirts! We usually do this workout at the end, kind of as a cool down and toning method. Remember to measure yourself before and every week for about a month. Please share your results and let me know how it worked for you! Remember you have to actually do the exercises for them to work. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
From the original site: http://www.t-tapp.com/articles/legs/index.html
"Two sets of legs are pictured, a fitness model with athletic muscle development and an editorial model with toned muscle development, because Awesome Legs works for all fitness levels. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the movement, it is very effective and when done in proper form, you will feel the difference! Start with two sets and work up to three."

This summer has been so much fun my blogging has been left unattended. While chatting with a friend yesterday it made me want to start back up again. This time with a variety of information and things to look forward to through out the week. So I am kicking it off with Wednesday's Spot of Week, ranging from places in CLE and spots we have been to in our travels. First up Christmas in July 00000013!!
Christmas in July is this weekend and the spot to be is PIB! We have been up to the islands twice this year and I have found the best hang out in the July heat is the swim up bars! Be watchful of the ones who have not left the pool for hours :)
Although we enjoy PIB Resort/Blue Marlin it can get packed and a tad crazy. I guess it depends what atmosphere you are looking for. If you want a younger crowd with a great DJ (A-Dubb-my husband's hero) and cheap pitchers head to PIB resort. The swim up bar is called Blue Marlin but it is the same location. Helpful Hint: If you forgot towels just pick a room number, for example 203, and you will get free towels. The bar is fun and worth checking out. DJ A-Dubb also has competitions throughout the day that are pretty entertaining. Such as best belly flop, dance contest, booty shaking, etc. With the amount of booze people are drinking it makes for an interesting people watching session.
The other spot that is a little more low key but just as fun is Sand Bar, they have a huge swim up bar and poll with water volleyball, a sandy volleyball court, cornhole, tiki bar, and full arcade. Plenty to do for all ages. They do allow kids in there during the day and they charge for the kidos since they are not drinking. I believe it is a $5-$10 cover. The only down side to this place is the DJ....they need someone in there with real equipment and people skills. I like that they do a throwback 90's tribute but it is good to mix it up. The drinks are great but bring cash, this goes for most PIB bars. The bartenders are not so organized when giving you your check.....and I am putting this nicely.
Have a safe and happy Christmas in July!!!! Hope to see you at the BAY!!!!
