Plus Size Workout Video | Rihanna “Work” feat. Drake

I’m traveling a lot right now, so it’s up to me to keep my workouts fun and interesting. If you follow me on snapchat (CeCeOlisa) you’ve seen me walking, swimming, boxing, etc. Yesterday I was working out in my parents back yard. I realized that I haven’t created a one song workout for you girls in a while, so I took my camera and started messing around to “Work”, by Rihanna. Shout out to AceMula for this remix!

3 Ways To Have A Better Workout No Matter How Fit You Are — Or Aren’t

Last week, I walked into a new dance class confident I was about to get a good workout — and that I could keep up with the others.  Instead, the classed moved quickly with little instruction, and I saw my classmates expertly perform the routine while I flailed my arms and legs awkwardly. It was not what I was expecting. Group fitness classes can be great, but taking an open level class often means there are some moves I’m not quite ready for.
