I think today went well. I got a later start because I have been getting to bed late. My next area of focus will be getting to bed earlier so that I can get an early start. I started oil pulling with coconut oil. I grabbed a spoon full of coconut oil, started my watch and carried on with my day (took Ruby out, fed the cats & Ruby, fixed my bed, brewed a cup of tea) then 20 minutes later; I spit it out.
I would like to add the oil pulling to my morning routine. The last time, I did it for a week and noticed that my teeth were whiter and I had more energy. There could be something to it because I got through my day without coffee! Once I got my morning chores out of the way; I did a morning yoga workout.
I have decided to get serious about practicing yoga consistently. I am really having fun with the variety of yoga videos on youtube.
After yoga, I decided to do 20 minutes of vocal warm-ups. Our voice is also produced by a muscle and I want to get back into singing. I could tell that my upper range needs work, but I was surprisingly enjoying my mid-range notes.
Workout of the Day: Walk with Ruby, Resistance Bands, & Yoga
Ruby and I walked for 54 minutes and went over 2.5 miles!
When we got home I got right into my resistance training!
Word of the Day:
- to make lucid or clear; through a light upon; explain
- to provide clarification; explain
I ended my day with Yoga. Try this video below! It features some excellent ab work!
I am blown away by all the resources that are available to us. What a blessing it is to be alive in this day and age where workouts and resources are available at our fingertips! I am really glad that I have started my yoga practice. It really helps me to be aware of my body and my breathing.
Maybe someday I will workout in the gym again… But until then, I am really enjoying the luxury of working out at my own pace in the comfort of my home. My cardio has been walking which is not as strenuous as I am used to, but I keep reminding myself that I am aiming for consistency. I want my workout habits to last this time around.
How is your week so far? Tomorrow we will be halfway through!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
