Workout and Word of the Day #134

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

What is new and exciting in your world?  I am excited about the fact that I have been consistent with my workouts.  This is week #7/8 of my 8 week program!  My motivation levels have been across the board throughout these 8 weeks varying from super motivated and inspired to as unmotivated and wanting to give up.  Although honestly, I have spent so much time feeling discouraged and giving up in the past that I think I got that out of my system.  Not wanting to give up has inspired me to keep going despite the feelings.

I am proud of myself for sticking with my program and showing up even on the days when I wanted to give up.  And I am thankful that the pull to give up has been weaker than ever.  I am learning that motivation is cumulative.  The more you show up, the better you feel and I have been feeling better than I have felt in a long time.  It is also nice that my partner has been complimenting me a lot about the way I look in my outfits.  My partner is not one to sugar coat or give out compliments easily.

Today’s Workout is: Abs Workout and Bodyweight Cardio

I started my day with 20 minutes of fasted cardio on my new airdyne bike.  I am probably going to have to write an entire post about how I acquired this bike because it has been the highlight of my week!

I want to start practicing yoga again.  I have not done a yoga video in a while.  Luckily, I still make time to flow on my mat, but I know that I would feel even better if I spent more time to slow down.  My energy has been a little frantic lately and I think implementing a meditation and yoga practice would help.

Thank you for joining me for another workout and word of  the day!  Do you do fasted cardio in the morning?  If so, is it an everyday practice or do you use it on certain intervals?  Comment below to share!

    1. I totally get it! I just moved to a place where the closest gym is about a 25 minute drive (which isn’t completely awful), but it is far away enough. Doing home workouts have been so helpful.
      I definitely understand missing the gym though. It is nice to be around all the energy and I enjoyed taking classes. 🙂
