Workout and Word of the Day #58

I felt better today than I have in a long time. For the past 2 weeks I have struggled with depression, sadness, and lack of motivation.  I think the 3 could be intertwined and I felt a sense of impending doom knowing they would be my Grandma Alice’s final days.

I am proud of the fact that I continued to show up despite my deep sadness.  I know that each day will be a little different, but I am feeling peace in knowing that my grandma is resting peacefully.

Workout of the Day: Leg Day (stride dominant) + Hiit

  • Bodyweight Single-leg Hip Thrust (3 sec. pause) 3 x 10
  • DB Box Squat 3 x 10
  • Ball Hyperextension 3 x 12
  • Side Lunges 2 x 10
  • Leg Presses: I alternated with both legs at 160 lbs / single leg at 50 lbs

Hiit: 30 seconds on/ 30 seconds off for 2 rounds!

  1. Prisoner jump squat to crossover
  2. Lateral Lunge into Standing Oblique Crunch
  3. Repeat other side
  4. 4 oblique climbers to tuck jump
  5. Star Jumps
  6. Shuffle curtsy lunge

Today’s Word of the Day is:

idyllic– adjective

  1. Pleasing or picturesque in natural simplicity.
  2. Of, or relating to being an, idyll.

I think today was proof that things get better and feeling down and depressed is no reason to quit.  We might need to take a brake, rest, and slow down and that is perfectly fine.

Life has been feeling awfully heavy lately, but I have a feeling that sunny days are ahead!
