      I guess the problem might be that the rest days of the Blogilates calender and the light (active rest) days of AoP dont coincide, so you might often be training the same muscle groups on consecutive days and you're body never gets the time to recover. Here is a good article that might give you some ideas.


        Ahhh that makes sense. And thanks for the article, it was helpful!


          I felt pretty motivated today! I slept in, then started my laundry and busted out my workout. It was a Blogilates rest day, so my muscles didn't have to do double duty today

          Today's workout (Sunday, June 11th):

          This week, I'm also going to focus on staying hydrated. I don't think I drink enough water for someone who lives in the desert

              Not gonna lie, today was a struggle. But everything is done lol.

                      Okay guys . . . I will not tell a lie. I def slacked off and missed some days on the 30 day Flexibility challenge. I don't know if I should just wait until the new month to start over, or start over now, or just pick up where I left off. Any thoughts?
                      I didn't slack off on my other stuff though, so here are my workouts

                        The challenge shouldn't be too hard to pick up where you left of after 3 days. Maybe just go back a day or two. The real question is: why did you slack off on that particular challenge? Because if it's a time matter you could also wait a few more days untill you finish Age of Pandora and start over.


                          Thanks for the advice, twinkletoes! This week it has been hard to keep up with everything because I've been working overtime most of the week, so it was a struggle haha. But I finally finished Age of Pandora! I think I will wait until the new month to restart the flexibility challenge, since work won't be dying down for at least a couple of weeks. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

                                Okay guys, here's the thing . . . I definitely have not done serious exercise since my last post. With my long hours at work and lack of motivation lately, all I've gotten in are some walks here and there. HOWEVER, I am back on the move today. I've decided to restart the Blogilates beginner calendar, and do the Darebee Fighter training plan (both starting tomorrow). That way, I'm not doubling up on workouts every single day. Thanks for sticking with me, guys! Also, what do you guys do when you aren't feeling motivated? How do you keep you motivation?
                                Have a great week!
