Chloe Ting’s 25 Day Hourglass Challenge

Tags

,

Today I finally have motivation to start to commit to a workout program. I know I’m a little late to the game, since most people started this during the quarantine…but better late than never. My quarantine time was spent on a lot of self reflection over my past 2 months in an intense rehearsal period as Donna Elvira as well as solidifying my vocal technique (where I actually made a ton of progress, as my neighbors can attest…lol).

I’ve committed to the new Instagram craze, the Chloe Ting’s 25 Day Hourglass Challenge with free 10-50min daily workouts. The results from fellow Instagramers is impressive, so definitely worth a try! On Day 1, my first impression is: I like it! Today’s workouts were Tiny Waist Round Butt (which was a very “doable” with room to challenge yourself) as well as the 10min Abs in 2 Weeks – also another Instagram challenge (which was really challenging and definitely pushed me). I have done Shaun T’s Insanity in the past, but I found I had to be super motivated to be jumping around 45min. I prefer Chloe’s workout for more of a daily workout that I can commit to even past the 25 days. It’s easier on the joints since (so far) everything is done is done on your back or in a plank position. It’s focus is on sculpting muscle tone. I am combining Chloe’s workout program with intermittent fasting (fasting everyday for 18ht, between 6pm – 12pm) in addition to my healthy weekly meal prep. Click here to follow the workout!

Back to normal

Ok, this is strange…since the lockdown finished, I still have had no urge to go shopping! The lockdown has conditioned me to get into a whole new routine of doing things at home, that now I find myself rarely going out, even when I’m allowed to. Today, the whether was nice, so I ventured out back to my reality…a reality where I shop! I spent the entire day at my favorite shops on Mariahilferstraße, but I only bought one item (which is also quite typical for me). See, it was quite easy to get back to reality! 😉

So this was my only purchase from Mango: a burgundy mini shift dress with ruffled sleeves and hemline. The material is very stretchy so it fits more like a bodycon dress and runs big, but also short. Click here for more information.
