Workout and Word of the Day #9

Happy Monday!

I took a rest day yesterday and woke up feeling refreshed!  Even though it was my rest day,  I decided that I am going to add yoga to my morning routine (even if it is just 15 minutes, it still counts)!

Last winter, I started my day with yoga followed by meditation and it changed my life by helping me cut down on stress.  I eventually got “busy” and let other priorities like “sleeping longer because I stayed up too late” take precedence, but I missed  the clarity of having a morning routine.

Day 1 Discern | Yoga with Adriene

I love the way that yoga reminds me to focus on my breath and to be aware of my body.

Today’s Workout: Whole body + 30 min. Elliptical

Complete each exercise 2 x 20 times!

  • Kickout
  • C Sweeps
  • Pull-over
  • Lunge
  • Side kick
  • Ball Pike
  • Russian Twists
  • Crossover Crunch

I have noticed that I am using lighter weights to focus on proper technique / form.  I would rather build a strong foundation properly than lift too heavy and get injured.  I am all about injury prevention!


Today’s Word of the Day is:

substantive– adjective

  1. Having substance: involving matters of major or practical importance to all concerned.
  2. Considerable in amount or numbers: substantial

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  I will see you tomorrow!!!
