The official first day of summer is tomorrow and it was 74 degrees and cloudy today. I’m not complaining though because this sure beats 100+ degree weather. The girls have been at camp all week which has surprisingly been exhausting for me as well as them. That being said, I’ve been getting my workouts in super early and have been putting in extra hours at work. We are wrapping up part 2 of the At Home Fat Melting Workout Plan and about to start the third and final phase next week.
If you’re just tuning in, you can find part one here and part two here. Just as with the previous phases, I will continue to share the daily routines in Instagram stories but feel free to use this post as a reference and pin the images for later too.
The schedule will remain the same for part 3 with 5 structured workouts per week and one steady state cardio only day. The best thing about the at home fat melting workout plan is that you don’t need a gym to do these workouts. For me, having a 2 kids and 3 dogs in a tiny townhome it makes much more sense to work out in a gym setting. The only equipment you’ll need is a few sets of dumbbells and a sturdy pair of sneakers. I recommend lighter weights that will still challenge you for these exercises.
Rest and recover!
I also mentioned that I was doing intermittent fasting and have officially stopped that as of this week. While it may work for many people, I didn’t feel like it worked well for me and my lifestyle. It made me hungrier, more tired and more irritable. What does work for me is eating a macro ratio of roughly 40% carbs/ 30% fats and 30% protein and tracking it in the MyFitnessPal app. I do not track macros to the gram because that is a bit too much work and to me unnecessary. I believe in balance and moderation.
If you’ve been doing these workouts alongside me I’d love to hear what you think! Also, if you have any questions feel free to comment below or email me.
