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:
- Overflowing with fervor, enthusiasm, or excitement; high-spirited.
- 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.
