Workout and Word of the Day #85!

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

When I woke up this morning my hamstrings and hip creases felt sore (not in a bad way.)  It was a nice feeling that I have not felt in awhile.  I am glad that the cardio workout I did yesterday worked 🙂

Today was another non-depressing day and I can safely say that I am feeling much better than I did last week.  Peace has been restored in my household and I feel like I have been more mindful of my thoughts and the daylight.  How does daylight play into this?  Well, I make it a point to spend more time outdoors.  Yesterday I got outside a little later and only got to garden for 15 minutes before the mosquitoes gobbled me up, but at least it was something.  Today I made it a point to get outside earlier in the day and I put on some insect repellent.  I still got some bites, but there were a lot less than usual.

Today’s Workout is Yoga + Core

Crow Practice | Yoga With Adriene

I still have not managed to do a successful crow pose.  The shape is still so unfamiliar to me, but this video helped me to feel more equipped and I infuse this shape into my regular yoga practice more often.

Quick Cardio Warm-Up

ABC Abs 2.0

This was a fun exercise that also exercised my brain and distracted me from the pain and burning in my abs!

5 Lower Ab Isolation Exercises

I could feel the burn with this one.

Toughest Muffintop Workout Ever!

I had to take the modification for this exercise and it still challenged me!

Mighty Middle Abs Workout Challenge

The eagle arms posture has always been challenging for me, but I am a little better at it than I was before 🙂

Today’s Word of the Day is:

ebullient– adjective

  1. Overflowing with fervor, enthusiasm, or excitement; high-spirited.
  2. Bubbling up like a boiling liquid.

Thank you for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  I was really stressed out these last 4 weeks and it is nice that I can finally relax.  There were a couple of nights when my partner and I were so stressed with our guest that we had some vodka or tequila shots.  It was a fun way to decompress, but I am thankful that I no longer feel the urge to drink at all now.

Stress really is a killer and we  should all make it a point to stress less.

❤ Alana
