Workout and Word of the Day #25

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

Happy Monday!  I woke up this morning not wanting to do anything…  Last night was a lot of fun.  I cooked up a delicious romantic dinner of seared ahi tuna, roasted broccoli (my newest fav), and a glass (or 2) of Cabernet.  It was hard for me to fall asleep.  I have noticed that my evening routine is still a mess right now.  Or, let’s rephrase it, and call it a “work in progress.”

Thank goodness I have my espresso machine again because that coffee got me going today.  I started my day with 5 minutes of meditation and my own yoga flow.

Today’s Workout: Leg Day

  • 3 x 20 Banded Body weight Bridge
  • 3 x 20 Body weight Full Squat
  • 3 x 20 Body weight Back Extension
  • 1 x 30 Side Lying Clam

My 1st exercise was supposed to be a body weight hip thrust, but another person was using the only bench in the gym so I got creative.  I ended up working out a lot later than usual because I got asked to do a work project and the gym progressively got more and more crowded.  Luckily, I was able to do the strength training portion of this workout with only one other person there, but immediately after the side clams, about 3 other couples showed up to work out.

I decided to end strongly with a few hiit finishers:

  • Split Lunge Jump + Squat
  • 8 Count Burpees
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Shuffle + Curtsy Lunge
  • 180 Jump Squats
  • Lateral Hops
  • Split Lunge Jumps

One round of this circuit completely kicked my butt!  If the gym wasn’t so crowded, I probably would have attempted a 2nd round, but I made my one circuit count!

Word of the Day:

prestigious– adjective

  1. archaic: of, or relating to, or marked by illusion, conjuring, or trickery.
  2. having an illustrious name or reputation: esteemed in general opinion.

I am honestly a little surprised.  I had no idea that the word “prestigious” used to be so closely tied to illusion and trickery.  I always saw it as an honorable adjective.

How are you doing with your fitness goals?  I am proud of the fact that I am continuing to be so consistent.  I am still struggling with “trusting the process.”  In the back of my mind, I feel myself wanting to do more or worrying that I am doing this whole weightloss thing wrong.

I am going to keep going and learn how to trust the process.

Don’t give up on your goals, my Dear Darling Friends!  WE GOT THIS!!!

❤ Alana
