Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
I am enjoying this new year and I hope that you are too. I have been feeling strong throughout my workouts, but I have not yet managed to practice yoga yet other than my own occasional impromptu flows (I guess that counts too.) I will just take things step by step and not stress too much.
Workout of the Day: 30 Minute Hiit with weights
I was dripping with sweat throughout this entire workout and it felt good. This is the first time that I have done hiit with weights. When I think of hiit I usually think of calisthenics and body weight exercises, but this was just as effective (maybe even more.)
Word of the Day:
- An amorphous polymer related to cellulose that provides rigidity and together with cellulose forms the woody cell walls of plants and the cementing material between them.
Lately, I have been feeling like I do not have enough time to accomplish everything that I want to do. My partner and I had a lovely day yesterday. We drove to town for a walk and had an impromptu al fresca lunch with a beautiful view of the Bay. When we got home we both worked on our reports, then went for a walk and ordered Thai food delivery.
I still wanted to do an hour of coding, my workout, and read for a few hours and my partner wanted to watch Dracula with me. I almost wanted to put off my workout, but I knew that if I delayed it any longer it probably would not happen and I would have to move it to today (which is my rest day.) I did this workout and then we watched shows the rest of the evening.
I will do my coding today and am glad that it is my rest day. I think I am going to like this new training schedule. For the past 8 weeks I was working out on Monday-Friday and resting on Saturday and Sunday. With my new program, my rest days are on Wednesday and Saturday. I think that it is going to be better for me to not have more than one day in a row off. I was getting kind of restless and even a little stiff before from the rest days.
Thank you for joining me for today’s workout and word of the day! Have a wonderful weekend!
