If I’m being really honest, I’ve never really liked exercising. I can appreciate those who love working out and can stay motivated. I used to exercise a lot more, I would go on walks/ runs and do very basic home workouts.
But now that we’re all in lockdown and I’m bored as hell with all this free time, I thought; why not try working out. What’s the worst that could happen?
My Instagram, Tiktok and YouTube feeds have been filled with home workouts and exercise plans for a while now. I couldn’t escape it. So, with the world trying it I thought why not give it a go.
I didn’t have to spend that long looking for some inspiration, there was so much variety to choose from. I was stuck between Instagram and Tiktok. But I decided to focus on Instagram as I have seen and gotten most of my inspiration from there. With thousands of hashtags dedicated to working out, like: #quarantineworkout, #homeworkouts, #workoutfromhome.
There were so many videos and posts about different workouts and levels of exercise. Some of them needed equipment and some didn’t. I was lucky to have some old workout equipment laying around, but some people may not.
It was nice and sunny so I decided to workout outside. I decided to start with a light and easy workout. I started light cardio exercises. Like Burpees and decline push-ups. I used some of the equipment I had as well as some of my outdoor furniture.
I kind of enjoyed exercising, but I wanted to try other types. I looked through Instagram again and saw a lot of yoga. I’ve kind of been interested to try it. I only did basic yoga stretches because I didn’t want to hurt myself as I had never done it before.
I’ve spent the last two days doing home workouts, it’s been fun if I’m being honest. Will I stay motivated to do it every day? Maybe not, but I will try to do more of it. I’ve been walking and running more so I think ill stick to that but I might mix it up and do some home workouts too.
So, I did a home Workouts this week and I think it went well. As I continue to spend the next couple of weeks trying to gain a more open-minded approach, I’ll be trying out Meditation next week.
