Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I got my workout done earlier in the day, but I saved yoga for the end of the day. That schedule seems to work well. I am still navigating through my work schedule, workout, and everything in between. It can be a balancing act when you work from home. I am not complaining, but when I have had set work hours it was almost easier because I knew where I should be at what time and then I had the rest of the time to do other things. I do prefer working from home.
I have been doing my best to keep track of the sunlight and spend more time outdoors. Yesterday I was able to get some gardening in during the evening hours. It was peaceful and relaxing. I still cannot believe how quickly everything grows around here.
Workout of the Day: FB Day 2 core, hiit, and legs + Yoga
40 Minute Cardio Hiit Butt, thighs, and abs
I enjoyed the variety in this workout. This is what I appreciate the most about Fitness Blender workouts. They are no nonsense workouts that get the job done!
100 rep Squat Challenge:
We did 10 different kinds of squats and a total of 100 squats. Once again the variety made it fun!
For lunch I had a Greek salad wrap that had greens, alfalfa sprouts, artichokes, olives, bell peppers, and feta. It was a nice twist on a salad and easier to eat than a full salad. I also had Jun culture to drink which is basically Kombucha, but they use honey rather than sugar to make it. It had a nice kick to it since it had some cayenne.
Dinner came hours later and my partner made us lots of ground beef with a parmesan sauce and some whole wheat noodles. The least healthy part of my day was in the morning when I decided to get myself a Vietnamese cold brew coffee. It was delicious, of course, but also a sugar bomb and I really need to cut down on my sugar.
Yoga for Change and Drain:
This was a beautiful practice with some gentle twists and a few challenging planks. My favorite part was the ending ❤ It was happy and energizing 🙂
Word of the Day:
- An idler or lounger.
Thanks for joining me for a workout and word of the day. By the end of the day I noticed that my left foot / ankle was still bothering me. It has been sore the last 2 days. I gently stretched and massaged it and put on an arnica rub. This morning I realized that the way I am sitting at my desk is probably causing the pain. It is funny how we can passively contort our bodies in unnatural ways without even noticing it.
Alright, I better get back to work. Have a lovely day and see you next time!
