A Toning Program That Works For Me

Hi There,

Hope you enjoyed your weekend!  It was so very humid here in South Carolina this weekend!  

Today, I am sharing with you my latest toning/exercise program that I have been working on for awhile now and love.

It involves jogging at the local middle school near where I live, weights and exercise and of course, a healthy diet.

I have never enjoyed running even when I was a teenager.  I would try and then not proceed with keeping up with it.  Well I have to say I have been running for over a year now and never felt so good!  Of course, I started just jogging around the baseball field at the local school and then eventually running the school track which I now love.  The track is 1/4 mile and I usually run approximately 1 mile every other day and also walk around the track.

And of course I also exercise for abs (stretch, crunches, and planking) along with weights for the arms.

I just find various exercise programs on the internet.

Here are some sites that I have used for:

Crunches -- see here.

Dumbbell Exercises -- see here.

Arm Workouts -- see here.

Squats: see here.

I am sure if you google for what you are looking for, you will find tons of things!

My diet is a healthy diet which includes vegetables, fruits, grains, very little red meat.  And no sugary drinks!  I have never touched soda since I was a teenager.  Yes - I live in the Low Country where Sweet Tea is everywhere, however, rarely drink it.  I prefer water with fresh fruit or cucumbers!

I rarely eat sweets or desserts.  My breakfast includes oatmeal, fruit, coffee (yes I still have a little sugar in my coffee -- years ago I would use two teaspoons but now I am down to 1/2 teaspoon).  I do have two coffees in the morning.  I LOVE MY COFFEE!

For lunch, I usually have steamed vegetables or a NOOSA Yogurt (one of my favorite yogurts in the world). They can be found at Fresh Market.....

Dinners include salads, lean meats and vegetables.  No breads or rarely any starches!!

If I get hungry after dinner, I will snack on some low fat popcorn or some assorted nuts.

Although I wear a size 6 in clothing, I still want to keep toned and by exercising and running I feel that I have achieved this!

What kind of exercise program do you have?
