Antoniette Pacheco is awesome, what more can I say. She is a mom, a marine, and girlfriend of Frank Medrano (who is pretty impressive himself, after her of course, yay girl power). I recently came across her on Google and started following her on YouTube and Instagram because I was so impressed, and I am one that is hard to impress. Yet, she impressed me, and it is not only because of her athletic ability, and her super toned bod that I hope to have some day, but it was because of her attitude and her dedication to her health in spite of being a mom. She doesn’t let being a mommy get in her way she makes it fun for both her and her daughter and I am totally for that. (I work out with my kids as well but I am not as committed as I need to be, and she inspires me)
In addition to being impressed by her for those reasons, she is also a marine, which means she fights for my freedom, and that alone is enough to make me appreciate her. So in honor of Antoniette Pacheco I am writing this post, for her service, and for inspiring mama bears all over to be greater. Thanks Miss Pacheco!
Some of the best advice I have ever read about working out was that when choosing an exercise, you should choose something you enjoy doing opposed to something you find boring. I hate walking on a treadmill or using an eliptical for longer than 20mins. However I love to play and to do things crazy challenging just for the heck of it because I think it’s fun!
Lately, instead of just doing my eliptical workout I like to include some type of Bootcamp style routine into my workouts. For me they are a fun challenge and help me to stay interested because nothing is the same, not to mention they usually work up a greater sweat for me.
For routine ideas I recently started using the workout schedule below, that I happened to find on another blog titled “Messy Artist“. There are pictures included of each of the workouts and sometimes I switch up the workouts from other days. Overall I have greatly enjoyed using the routine and I usually can do the exercises right in my room which is really convenient.
I am also sharing a video that I find truly motivating. I have decided that I am going to watch this video everyday just to motivate myself. Hopefully you will find it just as motivating because these ladies are awseome!!
