The other day at the gym I decided to wear shorts – not my usual choice for winter, but we’ve had an unseasonably warm January here in Washington state, so I decided to go for it. As I was leaving the locker room I did my cursory check in the mirror to make sure my hair wasn’t sticking up or I’d accidentally put my shirt on backwards, and did a double take.
Were those MY legs? Wow, they actually looked kinda toned … kinda good. Beach ready? No. Still a way to go on that one, but I was amazed to see just how much progress I had made.
Jaime has me doing three simple exercises to target the major muscle groups in my legs, calf raises, lunges and sumo squats (similar to a plie with a weight for those dancers out there). Of course, my cardio workouts, on the bike and elliptical trainer, and yoga also help strengthen and tone my legs.
Seeing the progress with my workouts is making me take a closer look at my diet. More on that next week.
