A Full Body Workout using Paper Plates!

No equipment?!  No problem.  Grab a paper plate and perform these exercises to work your entire body.  Enjoy 🙂

A 4 minute workout to do during commercial breaks!

Here’s a home workout for you to do while watching your favorite television show. Now imagine that I am using a couch instead of a chair. Also, imagine that I am doing four minutes (1 minute of each exercise) on the commercial breaks. Enjoy 🙂

1) Leg variation: lift one leg, lift the other, lift both legs, stand up with a jump or a calf raise. Repeat.

2) Mountain climbers: bring one knee in and switch.

3) Tricep dips: fingers face your body. Bend elbows to lower your body. Perform the regular version with both feet on the floor or try my variation.

4) Bridges/hip lifts: Both feet will be on your chair/couch. Lift hips off the ground and lower (not touching the ground). Lift one leg or move away from your chair to make it harder.

My story has been published…have you read it yet?!

I am so, so, so excited (did I mention that I’m excited?!) that my personal story on body shaming has been published by a wonderful blog (Healthy is the New Skinny).  If you haven’t read my blog, My Struggle with Being Perfectly Imperfect, please take a moment to do so.  Empowering women, teens and girls is something that I feel extremely passionate about.  I hope that together we can decrease violence, bullying and body shaming.

Please SHARE my post (on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter) and together let’s take a HUGE stand to be #perfectlyme 🙂
