Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I am looking forward to my workouts rather than dreading them and that is a great feeling. I know that I go through these different cycles of motivation. Some days I am ready to go and other days I can barely get out of bed, but I know that regardless of how I feel before hand; I always feel better than I did afterwards. That feeling of accomplishment and knowing that I am taking care of myself keeps me coming back day after day.
Workout of the Day: Hiit, cardio, and core + Yoga
I recognized this workout from the 5 day Fitness Challenge that I recently completed. It was a lot of fun to revisit it, but it did feel like it was on the long side. I am glad that I kept going.
10 Minute Abs Workout:
After that hiit workout I was dripping with sweat and reluctant to do more. I almost decided to do this one later with my yoga practice, but I decided to push myself to do it even though I didn’t feel like it and I had fun. Once again, Kelli included a wonderful variety and the time passed quickly.
Yoga for a Rainy Day:
It was not a rainy day. It was so warm and sunny and I did not necessarily feel like doing rainy day yoga especially since it has an image of her doing that low lunge. I know that low lunges are great, but they are kind of challenging for me because I feel like I am squishing my organs. Also, back in September my back knee felt so tender that I always had to bring a pillow for extra cushioning during lunges. I think I have made progress because I no longer need the extra pillow. It definitely gets better with practice. This rainy day yoga ended up being exactly what I needed to decompress.
Today’s Word of the Day is:
- A name, title or designation.
- The act of naming.
It’s funny this word did not have the meaning that I expected. I usually do a fairly good job of figuring out words and have been obsessed with word etymology, but I am not always right. I am glad that I learned something new today.
What are your plans for today? Comment below to share. Today I am trying to decide whether or not I want to buy another acre of land. I am getting ready to visit it after I write this post. Wish Me luck!
