Workout and Word of the Day #7

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

This workout almost didn’t happen today.  I was super close to just calling it a rest day and shifting this workout to tomorrow, but I decided to stick with my initial plan.  My day started on a high note like a nice full balloon, but the air started leaking out slowly throughout the day.  By early evening I already felt tired, flat, and depleted and the 2nd cup of coffee didn’t do a thing.

Luckily, before that I was able to mow our entire property with my push mower.  I was clipping along and got done within a half hour (usually it takes me 45 minutes to an hour.) I decided to apply lots of sunscreen and get some sunlight while I mowed the lawn.  I usually cover myself with long sleeves and long pants and tune the world out with my headphones, but I decided to do things differently today.  It was nice to be more observant and enjoy the sounds of nature.  This might be part of what took my energy, but I am glad that I spent that time outside.

I did my workout today even though I didn’t feel like doing it and it was the best thing I could have done.  I have felt energized ever since and am looking forward to doing my coding after writing this post!

Workout of the Day: 45 Minute Cardio Kickboxing

This workout was fun, challenging, and empowering.  We did 6 rounds of cardio combined with strength training and he ended with a round of burpees.  I didn’t even know that I had enough energy left, but I did.

Word of the Day:

concertina– noun

  1. A musical instrument resembling an accordion but having buttonlike keys, hexagonal bellows and ends, and a more limited range.

verb – concertinaed-

  1. To fold, crush together or collapse in the manner of a concertina.

Thanks for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  Do you have fun plans for the weekend?  I am planning on studying a lot this evening and throughout the weekend.  I am taking a biohacking course which is requiring me to study molecular biology.  Additionally, I am in the midst of a coding bootcamp and am loving it.

Tomorrow is my rest day, but I might do some yoga or go for a walk in the rain. I am also hoping to acquire some art supplies. Have a fun weekend, my friends!

  1. Yay! So glad you got to it. I hope you’re not coming down with a cold, I just got over mine and the stuffiness was the worst! I couldn’t breathe and didn’t feel like doing anything.

    I hope today was better.


  2. Thanks Jessica! I agree stuffiness is the worst and I hope you will feel much better soon. It is either a cold or more likely allergies.
    I am getting ready to do a workout in a few. Hope you will have a great week!

    ❤ Alana
