This is how I work, guys!
Today, is a snow day in Alabama! We have 10 inches, and it is still snowing. It is so rare and so far between that it is amazing when it happens. I have been looking at Facebook all day of pictures from home, and man do I miss the country. I am happy I have power though, which my parents do not. I will stay right here in my city snow wonderland.
My 21 Day Fix is still kicking. I am so proud of myself for having constant movement and exercise for three week. Of course, there are rest days in there. I have decided that I really like my yoga at night, and I think I will pick it up again. It helps stretch my body at night after sitting at a desk all day. Not yoga with Autumn, but Yoga with Adriene. It is much more relaxed and about finding what feels good, which I love!
Yesterday’s workout was a challenge, but a good one. It was Total Body Cardio, which I feel gets me moving and stretch really well. I feel like I am working my whole body, and my heartrate really gets going. I was at the boyfriend’s so Maci was helping me workout. She did really well for the most part, until the ground workouts hit. She decided when it was crunch time, she would lay on my chest. I let her stay, and it was actually pretty effective. I think she liked it too. She loved chasing my pony tail too. That was the challenging part. Keeping her off of my head.
Today, was snow day number two. I woke up around 7:30, got my workout in. Today was upper body. It was amazing! I got a resistance band last week, and it really helped. I did not feel like I got a good upper body workout last week, except for planking, push-ups, and abs. Which was still good, but my arms did not really feel anything. That is not. With my band, my workout was so much better and I loved it!
My booty and legs are a little sore today, which as my friend, Danielle, says. She loves that feeling, and I am loving it too. It means my body is working and I am getting results. When I do not feel a little stiffness the next day, I actually feel a little sad and know I did not keep my form as well as I need to. I really concentrated on keeping my core engaged today. Every time I breathed in, I would “HA!” out to get my core re-engaged. I am really hoping for some sore abs tomorrow.
For the rest of my day, I am going to enjoy not having to do a thing. I have my comfy clothes on, some books lined up, Netflix on and my meals planned. Next up, scrambled eggs, sweet potato hashbrowns, and turkey bacon. I am drooling thinking about it.
I wish I could bottle the happiness and excitement I feel about my new journey and lifestyle. The lifestyle change is the workout every morning. I am loving it. I feel like I am waking up from a long, lazy, energy deprived state. I know there are some of you out there reading who may be interested in my program and want some more information. PLEASE, do not hesitate or be scared to ask me. I am absolutely excited to talk and share with people.
Keep in touch, my lovelies!
