Hey blog buds! Happy December 1st!
I have a little confession to make. I’ve been struggling here and there to get my workouts in. When my mind gets “busy” like it has been during the past few weeks (months?), it affects my sleep sometimes, and then feeling tired affects my motivation, and so on and so on.
BUT… I also know that ENERGY CREATES ENERGY. If I were my own client, I’d be telling me: “Get moving to keep moving.”
So I’m going to CHALLENGE myself and all of you to DO SOMETHING DAILY this month to move your body. (Yes Cindy, I said “challenge”!)
I know, we’ll all be super busy with the holidays. Yes, I’ll be busy with school stuff, especially in the next few weeks. But I am putting my foot down NOW on my excuses.
How ’bout you? Are you with me?
Have you been in a rut or feeling a lack of accountability? You can be accountable to me by posting a comment here each day with your activity.
I’ll keep you updated on what I’m doing – and I would LOVE to hear from each of you what YOU’RE doing too! It doesn’t matter if it’s simply a walk with your family or pets, a bike ride or ice skating. Or whether it’s lifting weights, yoga or running.
The only rule is that if you are working out with high intensity most days of the week that you allow one day of active recovery each week (like walking or gentle yoga) in place of the high intensity routine. I don’t want you to overtrain and wear down your immune system, especially around the time of year when the cold/flu bug likes to get busy.
What will you do today??
My workout today was 40 minutes of strength/cardio Tabata:
- Static Ball Squat w/ Static Shouder Side Raise
- One-Arm Alternating DB Press on Ball
- Step Ups with Medicine Ball overhead
- Seated Machine Rows
- Planks/Side Planks
- Wall Ball Squats
- Explosive Lunges (1 set)
- Overhead Tricep extension (1 set)
If you feel like doing something but are just plum out of ideas, here are some past posts to get you started:
- Circuit Routine for Upper Body and Core
- 13 Exercise Tabata Circuit
- Cardio Dance
- Call a Friend for SOCIALCIZING
Now I’m off to have a green smoothie, shower and do some last minute cramming for Day 2 of midterms!
Looking forward to reading your comments on what you’re doing today to get moving!
