Workout and Word of the Day: #68

Do you ever feel so overwhelmed and unsure about what kind of workout you should do that you just say, “f it, I’ll just start tomorrow.”  Or, “I’m totally starting on Monday!”

That’s been me for the past few weeks and in my case it is because there are so many possibilities even without a gym.  I just want to do everything and then I get tired just thinking about it ;).

One day I want to follow a strength  training plan then the next day it is a yoga challenge.  Oh and that half marathon that I want to train for…  Better get on that soon!

Today I felt overwhelmed and I decided to just start with the kind of movement that brings me joy.  Dance.  I have decided that for now I am going to focus on Ballet, Pilates, and Yoga.  Then if I want to add more, I can.

Today’s Workout of the Day: Ballet, Ballet Barre, and Pilates

This Mini Ballet Workout was a nice warm-up and stretch:

I absolutely ❤ “Lazy Dancer Tips” she is always so upbeat and sweet and provide wonderful classes.  This one was a workout!

Body Slimming Pilates Workout:

  1. I love this! I cancelled my gym membership over the summer because the routine of the gym just doesn’t really bringing me joy. I wanted a more personal and creative work-out, so that week I decided to start dancing again at the studio I grew up in. It has been so refreshing and so much more me.. it’s truly liberating. I’m gonna check out these vids in the morning, can’t wait!

    1. Hello! I can definitely related to you. I started to realize that the only reason I looked forward to going to the gym was for the dance classes. I had success with personal training before, but am really trying to save money so I will keep doing these “Workout and Word of the Day” posts and will include the workout videos I do. I am so happy that you started dancing in your studio again :). I hope you will enjoy these workouts. I am cheering you on!

      ❤ Alana
