Workout And Word of the Day: #6

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I am feeling sleepy so I will keep this brief.  This morning I had a 2 hour dance workshop which really got me to work up a sweat.  I love how happy and alive I feel when I am dancing.  I want to start working on feeling more comfortable with unchoreographed dancing.  Our professor wanted us to freestyle a lot to music and it felt completely different because I was so unsure about what to do.  I know that with some practice I will be able to flow.

Workout of the Day: Bellydance + Arms

Yesterday I did a lower-body workout so I wanted to make sure that I spent some time working on my arms today.  This Bellydancing workout was sensual and fun and an excellent arm workout:

 

I wanted  to do an arm workout that would ease me into future arm workouts so I chose this arm workout for dancers:

I thought about doing yoga, but it was already late by the time I started working out so I will do yoga tomorrow!


Today’s Word of the Day Is:

magnanimous- adjective

  1. Showing or suggesting a lofty and creative spirit.
  2. Showing or suggesting nobility of feeling and generosity of mind. 

All those late-night snacks, delivery pizzas and cheesy breadsticks, freezer pizzas, etc. really took a toll on my body and added some additional rolls.  Tonight I reflected on the fact that I have never lost weight in a healthy manner.  In Middle school and high school I used to swim 10 times a week for hours and I ate minimally.

In my early twenties I lost a good amount of weight by going vegan, but I was not eating balanced meals.  And my last bout of weightloss was about 3 years ago when I was  mainly drinking protein shakes instead of meals and completely fasting once a week.  Anyone would lose weight at that rate.

My approaches to weightloss have been very extreme in the past and this time around I want my results to last.

I would like to ask you for advice.  What tips, suggestions, exercises, workouts, and programs would you recommend for me?  Please comment below to share your ideas!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
