Workout and Word of the Day #23

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I have not been feeling very motivated to do computer things lately and that includes blogging.  I am glad that I have these posts to hold me accountable even when I don’t feel like posting because it gives me something to write about.  This lack of motivation to be on the computer is not a bad thing because I have been spending much more time outside exploring and it has been nice.

Workout of the Day: Hiit + Yoga

30 Minute Cardio HIIT for people who get bored easily:

These hiit workouts are a lot of fun and I am starting to recognize a lot of the exercises.  Now that I am familiar with proper form, it allows me to push myself more throughout the workout.

Yoga for Hips & Lower Back Release:

I think that this is the first time that I have done a targeted yoga practice (hips and lower back) even though my body was not feeling sore.  I think it is good and hopefully it will help me prevent future problems and tension.

Before I started either of these workouts I did 1 hour of dance fitness for the first time in forever.  I even wrote out my setlist order ahead of time then went through the whole thing and had the time of my life.  Whenever I dance I wonder if I should someday teach a class.  I still have yet to teach an entire (dance) class on my own because I do not know enough choreography by heart yet.  We shall see…  Maybe someday I will get extra ambitious.


Word of the Day:

Thank you for joining me for another workout and word of the day!  Let’s do our weekly catch-up tomorrow!

  1. I hear you! I’ve been experiencing post-menstrual blahs and haven’t felt motivated in a few days. I can’t believe how depressed it left me; I’ve never experienced it before. I’m hoping that it won’t be a common thing in my 30s.

    Glad you have accountabilibuddies and that your workout was a success. I hope the week ahead is full of joy, health, and exercise.

    1. Hi Jessica, I hope you are feeling better. I can definitely relate. I just went 1 whole year without an iud after having it for 3 years. I was struck by how much hormones really do affect our emotions and can cause depression. September – November was bad, but I was always relieved to discover that the depression was hormonal (still not fun, but good to know the cause.) Things have evened out since then, but I still notice it.

      Thank you for the encouragement. I remind myself that this is a lifestyle rather than a quick fix. I hope your week will be full of joy and more lighthearted.

      ❤ Alana
