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:
- 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.
