Exercise Tools & Motivation and that's exactly what I have been lacking lately - both the exercise and the motivation! So, I figure I should begin here, even if it's just a baby step. That's exactly what it was - a baby step. I tried these moves out - just one set of reps for each move - even though it said to do three sets. Slim Your Waist offers 4 quick and simple exercises that really do work your core - and without your typical crunches! I hate crunches because my neck gets sore. The V Crunch at the bottom didn't seem like a crunch for my neck because it didn't have to move. All these simple moves seem to activate the core and are very quick. The byline 'Fit in 6 Minutes' is fairly accurate - at least in the time it will take to complete these exercises. I'm pretty sure getting fit will take a bit more time. :-) If you are looking for a couple fun and easy stomach exercises, these are for you!
I have been wanting to blog for a long time, but haven't really had the time to try. Let's be honest, I haven't wanted to start yet another thing that I can't do well and eventually falls off my plate. However, I am ready to try - fail or succeed. I also haven't really been to sure about what content to use. I'm not a mom with lots of great tips, tricks and anecdotes from daily life. I'm not a really good cook with fabulous recipes and great substitutions. Though I love to craft, the time is not always available for daily projects - let alone weekly or monthly even. I could go on and on ... but I'll save you. What I have been good at lately is pinning on Pinterest. It's so easy I can even do it on my phone. :-) I have nearly 5,000 pins on about 80 boards now. Wow!! They really add up. The other day I was thinking about what I have actually done with these pins. Reality is -- not much. They are starting to be more and more organized, but they pretty much just sit there for me and others to look at and repin. This is when it hit me <BAM> (but not literally) -- I should create a blog where I make and/or try the things I am pinning. I'm sure there are plenty of other blogs out there very similar to this, but I've gotta start somewhere, right? So, there you have it. I would love to say that I will try something new every day, but the reality is that if I say that, I will likely fail and I really want to succeed at this. So let's just say there will be consistent trials and posts on what happens. I hope you will find this an enjoyable journey.
