There was a snowstorm last night for us. The hubs got a call really early this morning that his workplace was closed. We took it as the chance to catch up some serious zzz’s. After probably 9 hours of wonderful sleep, I was starving & a little groggy.
Oh, hiii there vanilla latte! I am seriously loving this drink these days.
And in an attempt to still be healthy but
still be lazy avoid cooking, I had a bowl of fruit salad & toast with peanut butter. Easy but whole and filling. Yum!
I typically like to do my abs & leg workouts on different days. But the other day, I skipped my abs workout so I decided to incorporate it into my legs workout to kill two birds with one stone. Turns out, I really liked it!
Explanation of the Moves
I’m assuming you all know what most of these are, but some that need further explanation…
Single-leg Sit Ups: Do sit ups with one leg extended out in front of you, keeping leg lifted throughout. Switch leg halfway through reps.
Extended Leg Sit Ups: Start in sit up position with both legs pulled into chest. Let chest/back fall to ground and extend legs out at a 45 degree angle, keeping abs firm. Pull legs back in as you sit up, crunching abs. Repeat & do reps.
Standing Leg Extensions: I really should have called this standing leg raises… Oh well. Stand on one leg with other leg out to side. Swing leg up, using side of hip/thigh. Swing leg in front of standing leg to complete one rep. Switch legs halfway throughout.
Single Leg Butt-Lifts: Lay on back with feet on the ground. Push up off feet, leaving back & neck on the ground. Lift one leg up at 90 degree angle in the air. Lower butt to just barely touch the ground for one rep. Switch legs halfway through.
You can also add cardio intervals in between moves for a full body circuit or throw in your favorite cardio afterward for a complete workout.
