Workout and Word of the Day #5

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

How are you today?  I am doing well, but yesterday I felt super anti-social.  I honestly have been feeling this way all week long.  Our neighbors invited us over for some beers and they wanted us to see how they had decorated under their house with lights, tiki torches, and a new picnic table that they built.  I got ready to go and then I told my partner to go ahead without me because I was feeling so anti-social.  Instead, I snuggled up to my desk and did my hour of coding.

It might have had something to do with the fact that they had made plans to come over 2 nights ago and I was feeling anti-social back then too, but we cleaned our place, lit candles, and waited for our guests, but they ended up not coming.  I was slightly relieved and spent the rest of the night reading.

Today, I feel a little concerned about how anti-social I have been feeling this entire week, but I am chalking it up to the new year.  I have been in deep focus mode trying to implement healthier habits.  The main reason I felt less than sociable before was because I still had things I wanted to do.  I wanted to code and spend hours reading and not drink alcohol since I am trying to limit myself to 1 drink a week.  Rather than being too concerned about becoming a reclusive curmudgeon I am taking this as a phase.  I am not an anti-social person I just want to accomplish things.

I also want to be more sociable so I am going to start being more efficient with my time.  Or at least keep track of where my time goes.  Get things done so that my mind can be more present in the presence of others rather than thinking about all the things I want to do.  Does this ever happen to you?  Please comment below!

Workout of the Day: 30 Minute Stretching Routine to Improve Mobility & Flexibility

But 1st, a warm-up:

I really enjoyed his 5 minute warm-up because it reminded me of dance class.  I will have to try more of his dance tutorials.

10 Minute Cardio Hiit:

30 Minute Stretch for Mobility and Flexibility

This was exactly what I needed especially since I have not been practicing yoga regularly.  I think that static stretching often gets overlooked, but it is so valuable.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  This may or may not be turning into a little vent session for me.   It feels good to be real about life’s little day-to-day struggles.  I know that this will seem so small when I look back on it in the future.

Have a wonderful rest of your day, my friends!

❤ Alana
