I am not talking about me but I am talking about the Asian woman, Maria Kang, who posted a photo of her and her three kids on Facebook that says "What is your Excuse?" Have you seen it? They are all over the internet as well as it stirred up controversy. Some got inspired and some got insulted too. For me, it is very inspiring because she has three kids and she still managed to have a great looking bod! The first photo is the one she posted in Facebook.
Maria Kang is half Chinese and half Filipino (if I am not mistaken). She is a business owner, a non-profit founder, creator of the "Belly Ball" and now known as the Fitness Mom or the the "No Excuse Mom". For me, she speaks the reality. Being a Mom is no excuse not to be physically fit, unless of course, you have a medical condition that is preventing you to do things physically for fitness. Everyone has each own opinion and you really can't please everybody. So even if her intention was not bad, some people might have interpreted it the wrong way.
Anyway, onto another topic, it's time for me to take Maria Kang's challenge to all Moms out there lol. I would love to thank empower Fitness for sending me this Fusion Fintness Disc, a new addition to my fitness tools at home. Just like Maria Kang, Empower Fitness also encourages women to be active, be healthy, and be strong. I admire this company and other companies that do support Moms like me to be the best we could be by providing us the tools that we need to be physically fit.
Sometime in October, I participated in a survey about a video that empower sent me via email. I tried doing the 10-minute Victoria's Secret Models workout and then I participated in a survey of how my experience was. I was surprised when they sent me an email last month saying that they are going to send me a Fusion Fitness Disc as a Thank you for participating in the survey.
The video above is a good one to do everyday, you can try it too. The Fitness Fusion Disc that they sent comes with a DVD that I can watch on the different kinds of exercise you can do about this 7 lbs disk. There are 10 different work out routines that you can do with this fusion disc which includes:
- sumo squats
- upward rows
- traveling push ups
- alternating twist lounges
- overhead triceps press (which is what I was doing in the photos below),
- jumping jacks
- alternating arm swing
- side lunges
- squat with one arm overhead press
I have been doing my workouts in our living room because it is called at our mini gym at the basement. I don't want to turn on our portable electric heater because it dries out my nose. I can say that this fusion disc is a true full body workout which provide an invigorating muscle conditioning, cardio and core workout.
To find out more about the work out routines I have mentioned above, please watch the video below.
Thank you so much once again empower!
