Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I am so pleased with the fact that my knee is no longer hurting. Yesterday it felt like I had to alter the way that I was walking to keep my knee from hurting and today I am pain free. I think it payed off to be more aware of my movements, go for a walk, and do exercises that focused on strengthening the muscles around my knees.
I started my day with another walk around the lake (but first coffee), it was rainy and refreshing. When I sat down for work I was able to think more clearly and work effectively. I definitely function best when I am active.
Safe & Effective Stabilization Exercises for most knees:
I enjoyed following along with this video. It served as a great warm-up and was surprisingly challenging.
Knee-friendly Fat Burning Cardio: Complete this circuit 4 times!
I really enjoyed this pilates/hiit style workout! I was not sure that I would want to do it all 4 times, but I did and I am glad that I did!
Today’s Word of the Day is:
- Unmitigated effrontery or impudence; gall.
- Audacity; nerve.
I enjoyed today’s workout. I am glad that I decided to start moving my body again. I noticed that my wrist was really bothering me throughout the first hiit circuit so I adjusted my hand placement and by the 3rd set the pain was gone. I think properly warming up also helped me to feel less pain.
After my workout I did 6 minutes of meditation and it felt great. I have also decided to start focusing on reaching my protein goals again. I have to admit that I have been off track this month and possibly will be for the rest of this month since I am in the midst of a big move.
I am making peace with this fact and am choosing to figure out what I can do while I am on the move. So far, these youtube workouts are working well.
How do you stay active when you are traveling or life is super hectic. Please comment below to share!
