Workout and Word of the Day: #78

Today was another day that kind of dragged me along, but I made the best of it.  My boyfriend and I went for a short walk downtown then ate a lunch of sweet potato fries and wings with veggies.  

The rest of the day was a little bit of a blur and then I finally got some programming done!  I also journal-ed and decided that I still stand a chance to get all caught up!

My day finally started to pick up once I decided to workout!

Workout of the Day: Kettle-bell Workout + Obliques + Yoga

I started out with Kelly Coffey-Meyer’s “30 Minutes to Fitness Slim Sculpting”  Below is a video clip, but I couldn’t find the complete workout online.  I got the dvd by borrowing it from the library.  It was a challenging workout that completely kicked my butt!!!


Next, was  this little killer of a workout!  She only did one exercise combination for 4 minutes, but it just about killed me!


Here is the “Extreme Muffintop Crusher”

Yesterday in my Samba class I noticed that my lower back was a little tight on the left side.  This morning it felt tighter so I did some foam-rolling.  There were about 3 workouts left on my Blogilates calendar, but I decided to listen to my body and do yoga instead.

Here is a nice yoga for lower back practice:

Sometimes you just need to listen to your body and nurture it.  Listen to your body.  Your future self will thank you for it!

Today’s Word of the Day:


  1. A place of burial: tomb
  2. a receptacle for religious relics especially in an altar

Ready or not, the week is beginning tomorrow and November is quickly approaching!  I am just going to go with the flow and stop fighting it.  I have noticed that when I get to stressed out or focused on my excuses, it paralyzes me and stunts my growth.  I want to let those old patterns go and start embracing the new!

Have a good night, my Dear Darling Friends!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
