Workout and Word of the Day: #38

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I felt tired and a little unmotivated to work out.  I think the fact that I was in celebration mode all weekend for my birthday impacted my energy levels and that’s okay.

For the past few weeks I have been doing a lot of strength training with dumbbells and high energy hiit workouts.  I decided to switch it up a little and do a gentle pilates workout today and it was just what I needed!

Workout of the Day: Pilates

This workout was very gentle yet concentrated.  I felt so good afterwards that I wanted to do another pilates routine.

This routine clipped along at a quicker pace and was a lot of fun.  Don’t be fooled by the fact that we don’t use equipment.  You will engage your entire body in this workout!


Word of the Day:

interstice- noun

  1. A space that intervenes between things; especially one between closely spaced things.
  2. A short space of time between events.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  I am going to start doing more pilates and yoga workouts.  I love how they help me to strengthen and lengthen the body.  See you next time!!!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana Xoxoxo

  1. My trainer couldn’t praise me enough today. After each round of boxing I did 1 minute of squats, and 2 minutes recovery. After my 3 rounds, I was squating and moving to each end of the gym, 10 times each way, and then finished up with one foot on the upside down Bosu, and the other one on a medicine ball, and did another 12 squats that way. I don’t know how to slow down. LOL.

    1. I definitely think that yoga can help. It is very gentle. I also turn to yoga or pilates when I am in pain and the next day I notice progress. Pilates is also a really nice and gentle workout. Let me know how it goes!

      ❤ Alana
