Day 24: POP Pilates thigh workout

Standard

It’s hump day and Day 24 of the Pinterest Project. For today’s project I decided to get physical and work on my legs. As a warmup to this workout I ran in Central Park after work today. I only did a 30 minute run, but it felt so good out there with 60 degree weather. This winter I went on a running hiatus since it was so cold and I just couldn’t force myself to run outside, so since it’s finally warmer out, I’m trying to get back into my old running routine so I can compete in some more races this summer/fall!

For today’s project, I did the POP Pilates thigh workout which is specifically targeted at your inner thighs and creating that ‘gap’ between your legs that every trim or fit woman has. This workout was originally posted from the blog ‘blogilates’ which focuses on pilates and healthy eating. For this workout you are completing a cycle of four different leg workouts and repeating this series 3 or 4 times.

POP Pilates thigh workout: (repeat cycle 3 or 4 times)

  • Heel Pulse – 20 pulses on each side
  • Single Leg Raise – 20 on each side
  • Froggers – 20 total
  • Sideways Scissors – 20 total

After completing this cycle a few times, I personally thought that  Heel pulse and the Single leg raise had the most benefit on my legs. I really could feel the muscles in my inner thigh’s working on those two exercises. I felt like the frogger and sideways scissors worked my abs more than my legs. All of these are really good workouts, and I already do the single leg raises a few times a week. I’ll definitely have to add the heel pulse to that routine!

 

Ok, so it’s getting kind of late and I am absolutely exhausted, but I had to tell you about today before I sign off. Today was the first day of my new job and it was AMAZING!!! Seriously, it is so much better than the last place I was working. Everyone is really friendly, I get summer Friday’s, lots a vacation time and the place has a pretty stress-free vibe to it. Also, that salary I’m getting makes it even better!

I’m really happy that I found this place to work and everything really just fell into place for me getting this job. I was kind of stressing out about resigning from my old job, but I was trying to be patient and pray for direction in what to do. I literally resigned from my job and immediately found a new one. This was definitely proof that God’s timing is perfect and he played a huge role in finding me this job right away. It’s literally everything that I wanted in company, which makes the move even that much more meaningful! I feel so completely blessed right now and excited for what my future might hold here.
