Workout and Word of the Day #44

Happy Friday My Dear Darling Friends!

I love the fact that I look forward to my workouts now!  I remember back in 2013 when one of my managers told me that I should make working out my new hobby / addiction.  I honestly thought they were a little crazy and wished I could do that, but back then it felt impossible.  Where would I ever get the energy to make “working out my hobby” when I was so busy working 4 jobs and taking the bus just to save money.  I was constantly exhausted and felt deeply stuck in a rat race of a rut…

I feel blessed that I was able to rise out of that situation and have managed to turn working out into my hobby.

Today’s Workout is: Legs & Back Hiit

  • DB Glute Bridge 3 x 10
  • Suitcase Squats 3 x 10
  • DB Back Extensions 3 x 10
  • Reverse Hypers 3 x 10
  • Side Lying Hip Raises 1 x 30
  • Dumbbell Rows 4 x 20
  • Jumping Jax 30 seconds
  • Upright Rows 4 x 20
  • Jump Squats 15/20/25/30
  • One-Arm Rows 3 x 20
  • Standing Calf Raises 4 x 25

I felt strong and powerful throughout this workout.  I also noticed that I was a lot more aware of activating my muscles.

Word of the Day:

nadir– noun

  1. The lowest point; point of greatest adversity or despair.

The scenario I described above seems directly related to this word.  I am so glad that it stopped being my state of being.  Thank goodness for positive changes!

Speaking of positive changes…  I am going to be real here for a moment.  I just had a hefty serving of yummy hooters wings and curly fries delivered to my front door.  They were absolutely delicious and I think I am going to do a nice little late night cardio.  It might be a moonlight walk with a friend or maybe even a jog on the treadmill.

How are you spending your Friday night?  Please comment below to share!

    1. Hi Elly! Thanks for sharing. That is a really interesting connection between a very low point and the Spanish meaning of nadir which is to swim. I love how it gives the word a more optimistic spin.
