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:
- archaic: of, or relating to, or marked by illusion, conjuring, or trickery.
- 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!!!
