Workout and Word of the Day #60

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I know that this morning I officially declared that I am taking 2 weeks off from working out, but it has only been one whole week.  Also, today I noticed that my right knee was hurting and I decided that it was probably as a result of being more sedentary.  I also noticed that I have been dragging and lacking energy.  These are direct signs that it is time to get active again!

I went for a beautiful 1.5 mile walk through the rain and enjoyed the fresh ocean air.

Once I got home I felt inspired to start moving again and I gave myself permission to start small.

Body weight Standing Pilates for Flat Abs:

I really enjoyed this workout and how it gave me a chance to work on my mind/body connection.  It was bodyweight only, but still challenged me especially once she incorporated some balance exercises.  Give it a try!

Knee Pain Exercises:

Whenever I experience physical pain I like to actively address it with stretches and exercises.  I feel so lucky to have such amazing free resources available at my fingertips.

Today’s Word of the Day is:

obstreperous– adjective

  1. Noisily and stubbornly defiant.
  2. Boisterously and noisily aggressive.

I am so glad that I took some time to move my body after taking some time off.  How have you been?  I know it has been awhile.  Please comment below!  I would love to catch up with you!

❤ Alana
