The good thing about going off replacement meals is, now I can have real food. Unfortunately, it also means that I shall have to work a little harder to burn up all the calories in my food, and it is always so easy to overeat! Sadly, now that I skate less, my fitness level has gone down noticeably.
A home gym is worth investing in, because it helps to save time from traveling to a gym outside. I could have a short workout in that time! With proper exercise techniques, you don't need to buy expensive machines that take up precious space. Here, I have:
- Short foam bars to roll on, to massage the muscles
- The long foam bar, which you can do core exercises on. Makes balancing more difficult
- Twister plate, for some cardio and to sculpt the waist
- Loopz band, for resistance and stretching
Finally, my latest toy, the Aibi power shaper: It vibrates pretty powerfully, and standing on it works out the legs. You could do squats on it too.
