3 home workout channels I am loving | Blogmas 1

very impulsive decision to try Blogmas again this year. Please hype me up so that i stick to it.

I have often mentioned in passing in my blogs just how far I am from working out regularly. I almost never have a fitness plan and that truly sucks. There is nothing more important than health and this is something that all of us have come to appreciate more over this pandemic period. I am still far away from a rigorous workout routine, but a step in the right direction should always be appreciated. I did a stretch of complete one month of home workouts right before Diwali after which I slacked and now with winters stepping in I have become all the more lazy.

But one happy realisation out of all this is just how much more motivated I am for home workouts compared to gyms and all. Therefore, I am going to list down 3 home workout channels I ended up discovering and enjoying. Of course, please bear in mind that these are very popular channels and if you are even a tiny bit into working out, you would already know them, but maybe someone like me will be helped. 🙂 More importantly, please, please do leave your recommendations on home workout YouTube channels in the comments for me!

1. Mady Morrison My favorite on this list and probably the least popular among the ones listed. I am so lucky that she was the first suggestion in my searches, I had just randomly searched for a stretching video because of a back pain. The worst thing though? Apart from this particular stretching video and a few others, almost all of her content is in German. I have enjoyed her vibe the most while working out and her videos instantly bring me calm. I think I would just become okay with subtitles eventually, that’s how much I like her videos.

2. Growwithjo I don’t know anyone who makes workout seem as fun as Jo does. Honestly, i was a little skeptical to consider her videos as ‘proper workouts’ as they are just so chill but she keeps posting about these people who have benefited from her workout programs and it’s just motivating.

3. Madfit to be honest, despite it being so popular, it wasn’t the best for me. It felt a little too stern for my liking (and less calm), but the good thing is that they have a lot of content to choose from, and she gives quite some breaks in between the workouts which maybe a good thing for many beginners. I stuck it out with this one for sometime because Mady is not in English, but I am looking out for more options. So, do leave suggestions in comments please.

Aside from these, i also keep seeing Pamela Reif and Dhruvi Shah being mentioned by a lot of Indian instagrammers but I yet don’t have a strong good or bad opinion on those.

Checklists. | Monday Mumbles 10 | Why I was MIA

Hello World!

DSC_0132

If anyone cares anymore :D, I was missing in action due to some important deadlines work-wise and otherwise, I think this was arguably the busiest period after my undergrad years (yes, my undergrad wasn’t as chilled out as it is in most Indian colleges) but anyway, it’s good to be freer and I would hopefully be regular now onwards.

Fortunately for me, I am back on a Monday because I can go as random as I want in Monday Mumbles. So, here’s today’s topic:

Tell me about your checklist for tomorrow/next week/month/year or any checklist that you have made and would like to mention.

Here’s mine after getting done with some of the deadlines:

  1. Getting one more pair of ear-piercing done. (This is the scariest one as I am really scared of needles, but I really want it. The good thing is that both my ear piercings were done after I reached teenage unlike most girls who get their first ones as kids and have to undergo less pain, but I already have experienced it twice and that probably should motivate me).
  2. Read more books because obviously. I was desperately waiting for this to happen.
  3. Visit more of the places that attract me.
  4. Experiment more with cooking/baking because it has been so long. In the morning, I was so excited about it that I thought I would bake something as soon as I reach home but now I am back to being my lazy self.
  5. Try to exercise. (This is probably even more difficult than 1).

That’s all, now share your lists!

If you want to share or ask anything in the next Monday Mumbles post, please drop me an email at srish.myblog@gmail.com.
