Five Ways to Stay in Shape!

Before you start any exercise you should at least do a 5-minute warm-up. Stretching your body when doing any kind of exercise is important because you don’t want to pull a muscle!

 

1)   Modified Push-ups (Arms)

Lying down, face the floor and place your hands in front of you. Push up while still resting your knees and toes on the floor. Going back down, continue doing this for the next two minutes.

 

2) Long Arm Crunch (Abs)

Next, lay on your back with your knees bent. Extend your arms straight behind you and as you lift up bring your arms down. When you lay back down bring your arms up again. Do this at a medium pace to get the full effect; continue doing this for two minutes straight.

 

3) Squat with Single Leg Extended (Glutes)

Standing straight with your legs spread shoulder length apart, squat down, and as you come up extend your leg straight back. Repeat this for the next leg…. It’s best to do this at a slow pace to get the full affect; continue for the next two minutes.

 

4) Calf Raises (Legs)

Standing up, lift up on the tip of your toes and go back down for the next two minutes. You may need to do this in front of a wall to keep your balance.

 

5) 30 minute run

Finally, take a thirty-minute run around your neighborhood. This will tone and strengthen your whole body for your wedding day.

 

 

Throughout these exercises I suggest you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Going into the work industry… you’ll always wonder if the “glass ceiling” still exists

In todays society i feel there is a glass ceiling when it comes to women. Gender roles in society have been portrayed as the woman being the stay at home wife and the man being the worker, the financial supporter. This is creating a glass ceiling for when women do try to work and also provide for their families they are being paid less for men, or are not being promoted in top positions because of the image the media has put out there on gender roles. Even though the world is changing and things are improving among women, we still have to work much harder to get to the top.
