Workout and Word of the Day#108 (FB Day 3)

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

It was another day that felt like it escaped me.  I was productive, but I think I had my 2nd cup of coffee a little too late in the day.  As a result I was very restless throughout the evening and felt like I should do more.

I really enjoyed this workout and am glad that I am doing this program.  It has given me something to look forward to and I have noticed that I am pushing myself a little more each day while being mindful of my body and tending to my joints.  I am still nursing a sore ankle, but it seems to be getting better.

Workout of the Day: Upper Body + Yoga

Upper Body Superset Workout:

It was honestly really nice to do a strictly strength training workout.  Today we are right back to hiit, but this workout made me feel really powerful and strong.  There were some moves that I would not have been able to do just a year ago.

15 Minute Ballet Cardio:

I took a break after my strength training workout then decided to do this ballet cardio video.  It was a lot of fun.  I felt a little silly in the beginning, but was quickly able to shake it off.

Confidence Boost Yoga:

This practice was a little like pulling teeth for me.  I was still restless and it was challenging for me to stay focused and present.  The video itself is wonderful and I recommend it.  I am just talking about my own internal struggle.  The hardest part for me was the balance poses.  I could really feel it especially in the ankle that has been sore so I modified and did not push those poses too hard.  I enjoyed this practice, but was happy to reach the end.  I am glad that I did not give up like I wanted to.


Word of the Day:

bricolage– noun

  1. A construction made of whatever materials are at hand; something created from a variety of available things.
  2. (in literature) a piece created from diverse resources.
  3. (in art) a makeshift piece of handiwork.

How do you deal with restlessness?  Comment below to share.  Last night I ended up writing another blog post, practicing yoga, then watching Netflix and chilling with my boyfriend.

Hope you are enjoying your day today!
