Workout and Word of the Day #94

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  My emotions have been kind of high, but that seems to be expected this time of month (I am noticing a pattern.) I think it is time to switch up my routine again pretty soon.

Lately I have been following Cassey Ho’s blogilates calendar and And Adriene’s Yoga with Adriene calender.  It has been a really good combination for my mind and body.  I am definitely going to continuing following Adriene’s yoga calendar and I am going to do all 30 days of Cassey’s calendar too.  Next month I am going to add more strength training into my routine.

Workout of the Day: Compassion Yoga + Feel-Good Stretches for splits

Compassion Yoga ❤

This was a longer practice.  Probably the longest yoga practice that I have done in the past 2 months.  I am glad that I decided to start with this before my pilates video.  Compassion was a little challenging with my swinging mood, but I did the best that I could.  I noticed that I started opening up even more throughout the practice.  I also love the fact that I have started pushing my edge more and more.  One example of this is that I have been trying to get into bukasana.  I have never had a bukasana practice in the past and it was always too challenging for me, but yesterday I found a little more balance before I tipped over and it was a lovely feeling.

Feel Good Stretches for Splits:

I really enjoyed this video.  Even though it was purely stretches I like how Cassey set a timer for each stretch.  I do have to say that the best way to fluidly attain the splits is to dance a lot.  I am definitely much tighter these days since I have not been dancing very much.  Even last fall and back in January I could getting into my splits with ease because I was taking so many zumba classes.  I gotta say it again, Movement is Magical ❤


Word of the Day:

zeitgeist-noun

  1. The spirit of the time; general trend of thought or feeling characteristic of a certain period of time.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day.  I hope you had a great weekend!  I got a lot of exciting news this weekend.  More on that soon.  I better start today’s workout before I run out of motivation 🙂

❤ Alana
