My Inventory of Workout Guides and Meal Plans



Here is a little bit of information about the inventory of workout guides and meal plans I have:

1. Blogilates

The first guide I bought from Blogilates was the New Body Make Over meal plan.I loosely followed this in college when I needed to lose weight.

PIIT 1.0 sounded like a fun guide to try because I followed her on Youtube, but I never tried it because it involves jumping and I couldn't figure out how to make it apartment friendly. 2. Love Sweat FitnessHot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 (Weeks 1-8) Hot Body Sweat Guide 2.0 (Weeks 9-16)4 Week Hot Body Meal Plan Guiltless Nutrition Lifestyle & Recipe Bookhttps://my.lovesweatfitness.com/collections/hot-body-guidesI have two workout guides (Hot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 and 2.0), a meal plan (The Hot Body Meal Plan), and a couple of recipe guides including the Guiltless Nutrition Lifestyle and Recipe Book and the first Guiltless Nutrition Guide (not pictured) Katie Dunlop came out with. I have done the Hot Body Sweat Guide 1.0 a few times, but didn’t finish 2.0 because I didn’t have time to workout an hour a day. As for the recipe guide and meal plan- those have been a great source of recipe ideas. However, I haven’t followed the meal plan because I prefer to plan my own meals and don’t want to restrict my calories to 1200-1400 calories a day. 3. Glisten Fithttps://www.etsy.com/shop/HustleSanely?section_id=25920141I have 3 workout guides by Jessica Massey. I followed the 4 week Strength and HIIT programs at the same time at the gym in 2016. It was a great guide, but I didn’t do it more than once because some of the workouts took over an hour to complete. As for the meal plan, I mostly use it for ideas just like the other meal plans I have.4. Books by Lou Schuler and Alwyn CosgroveImage result for books by lou schuler and alwyn Image result for books by lou schuler and alwynImage result for books by lou schuler and alwynhttps://play.google.com/store/search?q=lou%20schuler&c=booksI have 3 books by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove. Out of the 3, I finished part (about half if I can remember right) of the 9 month Strong program and completed about a month of Abs. I thought both programs were good. I even progressively got stronger every week. However, since the Strong program was 9 stages long, it didn’t give me an opportunity to do other workouts that I loved to do.5. Yoga by Kassandrahttps://www.yogawithkassandra.com/monthly-programsThe most recent guide I bought was Kassandra’s October yoga calendar. It was $10 and sounded fun, but I never used it. I decided I didn’t want to do only yoga for a month. Also, since it is labelled as an October calendar, I didn’t feel like trying it on a different month.

Why I Haven't Posted Recently

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I haven't posted on either one of my blogs for over a month. Looking back at both pages, I haven't posted on ABCTE Teacher since the beginning of May and I haven't posted on Fitness and Books since late April.
      To be honest with you, there isn't much to update. I went back to work, but it hasn't gone as expected. I am working very few hours because of the Coronavirus. My unemployment has also been pending since I went back to work at the end of May. I'm still trying to get that fixed right now and looking into finding a second job if I need to.
     Not much has changed on the health/fitness side of things either. I have been creating my own workouts and trying them out since I became certified in March. But right now I'm taking a break to try/learn from a workout guide I bought a few years ago and never tried. It is by Jess Massey who used to be a personal trainer a few years ago, but now owns anot…

What I'm Focusing on Right Now

Like I have mentioned before, I was unhappy when gyms closed due to the recent pandemic. I was actually just about to join one to work on one of my goals- lifting heavier and was excited to be able to use equipment I don't have access to at home.
    Despite what is going on right now, I have been doing well working out at home. I have been creating my own workouts using the weights I already have and have had time to do many things I wouldn't have been able to otherwise.
     Lately, I have had time to walk, bike, and run on the Greenbelt next to my apartment. I have also done hiking nearby too. What I'm especially thankful for is that I don't have a time limit to workout so I'm often out for over an hour at a time working out and
enjoying the scenery around me.
     If you have felt upset about gyms closing too, I understand. I wanted to see progress in my lifting ability. It would have also been nice to be able to apply my new knowledge as a personal train…
