Want to work out with me?

I used to work out every day. I swear I did. I did yoga constantly and ran a lot and did cardio. That is now just a distant memory, and I can't use the excuse its just a phase anymore. I'm pretty active though, I walk almost every day and we are always outside doing something like kayaking.
 But I'm not toned and I really want to be. I don't want to kill myself everyday but I want to get in the habit of doing something again. 
I've thought a lot about what works for me and I think yoga and leg toning exercises would be a good start for swimsuit season. 
So I'm turning to you sweet readers, to keep me on track and see if anyone wants to virtually join in with me as motivation. We can hold each other accountable mmmk?
This is what I'm thinking of doing...
1. Yoga 3x a week. 
I have this dvd and love it, but this website also has some awesome 30 minute exercises that I like to switch it up with. 

2. Legs 3x a week
Lets get long and lean. This video looks great, good workout but no equipment needed and short. 

They say it takes 21 days to make a habit so I'm promising to keep this up until the end of May and see how I feel. Exercising really is addicting so I'm hoping I'll get addicted again. 

Let me know in the comments if you are interested in keeping up with this with me or at the least promise to keep me on track.  The blogging community is such an amazing place, how awesome is it that we can work out together but live all over the world?
I'll get an email list together of everyone who wants to do it so we can in touch :-)

  1. Yes, yes, yes! I would love to work out with you. I need motivation to work out as well coz I keep making excuses. And I would be happy to keep you accountable in any way you want. Just let me know. I am a mom to two teenagers. Would that be okay with you since you are so much younger than me?

  3. Sounds great! My goal is to run and jump rope six days a week for 45 minutes each day. I want to wake up early in the morning and start exercising by 5.30 am. How do we encourage each other?

  10. I'm with you. I used to work out a lot and love it, but have gotten so busy working on our new house that it's totally slipped. I've decided to run Greenville's half marathon next October though! I've got to get training...
