Workout and Word of the Day #14

Last night I got to go to Friday night Zumba for the 1st time at the Y and I am so glad that I did!  Before class began the instructor said that she was recovering from a cold so the workout would be very low-impact.   I am not exactly sure what she meant because I was sweating by the time we were half-way through warm-up.  I had such a great time!  The Zumba crew is always so much fun!

Last Night’s WORKOUT OF THE DAY:  Full Body Circuit!

  • 12 Push-ups
  • 25 Goblet squats
  • 1 Minute of Mountain-climbers
  • 12 Dumbell Chest flies
  • 25 Sumo Squats
  • 1 Minute of Mountain Climbers
  • 12 Bench dips
  • 25 Kettlebell swings
  • 50 Jumping Jacks
  • 15 Tricep Extensions
  • 40 Jumping Jacks
  • 25 Crunches
  • 25 Kettlebell Swings
  • 25 Bicycles


I was thinking about doing the circuit a 4th time, but I was pretty tired and I decided to stretch instead.

Last Night’s Word of the Day was:


  1. to move under the influence of gravitation.
  2. to move toward something
  3. to be drawn or attracted especially by natural inclination

I felt like I worked hard for this weekend!  It is an adjustment to get back into a normal schedule.  Quite honestly, I had to take a nap after work most days.  You do whatever it takes, right?

I feel so accomplished because I worked out everyday except my Monday which was the holiday.  I am so happy that I am finally getting into a routine.  Hopefully soon I will be able to omit the nap during the week so that I can study more.

What was your biggest accomplishment this past week?

Do you have goals for the upcoming week?

Take the weekend to reflect and plan out some new goals for next week and I will do the same.  I would love to hear about your goals!

Love and blessings always,

Alana Xoxoxo
