Now don't go crazy, but after this ghoulish workout you will be entirely within your right to indulge in a few pieces of candy. It's all about balance. Have a happy Halloween, let's do this workout together and then enjoy some holiday treats...
Taking it to the Next Level
I spent some time working on a few more advanced yoga poses today, and included some in this new routine. Come try them out with me...
What Motivates You?
There are a lot of different things that inspire and motivate me each day. I am motivated to continue working out and eating healthy not only because I have lost so much weight and am committed to never putting it back on, but even moreso because I feel healthier (rarely get sick and recover quickly when I do), stronger, and have more confidence in myself and my abilities when I know I am taking care of myself. I believe so intensely in how empowering healthy living is that I strive to encourage everyone to try to see even just some of the light it has shown me. This new workout will make you a believer. It's so fun and over so quickly you'll be shocked and left wanting more. Time flies when you're having fun...
Jumpstart Your Day
This workout perked me right up, I guarantee it will do the same for you. Come get energized with me...
Take a Few Minutes to Relax
I have the perfect routine for you to unwind with this weekend. You just need a little over 30 minutes to feel nice and relaxed...
The Workout That Nearly Killed Me
Today's workout is a brutal one. You see me struggle, you see me sweat, but what you don't see is me giving up. I dug deep and got through it; you can too. Come try it with me...
In Need of an Afternoon Pick Me Up?
This workout felt really good after, but it took a lot for me to get myself through it. I am very fatigued today, and for the past few days it has felt like 80% of my muscles have been sore. And the best way to deal with soreness is to keep moving so that you keep blood flowing throughout your body and to and away from the soreness, but today I really wanted to just lie down instead. But after lying in bed for a little longer than usual, I felt even more sore, so I got up and as always changed into my first outfit of the day: my workout clothes, and used my foam roller to roll out my back and obliques. It really helped so much to spend a few minutes on that and I felt that relieve some of the tension that was exacerbating the soreness I felt. After this (and some coffee) I was finally ready to work out. Not every workout is going to be amazing, some days you are going to feel weaker or more tired; that's life, that's normal. But you just have to keep moving forward. There's still so many other things you make yourself do even when you feel that way, why should working out be any different? Simple, it shouldn't be. And it doesn't have to be, today's workout is less than 10 minutes long. No excuses, it's over before you even have a chance to remember that you really felt like napping...
Stretching for Strength
Today I happily noticed an improvement in my upper body strength when I was working on pull ups, push ups, and handstands. I am really really pleased about this because I've been doing a lot of upper body workouts the past few weeks. Feeling and utilizing this strength motivates me to get creative and put together some of my own upper body workouts for all of us to try together. In the meantime, I have a new yoga workout for this weekend...
Being Tired is Not an Excuse
If it was, I would literally never do anything. You can go back to being tired after working out and relax then. Just get your workout done and then you can do whatever else you feel like. Or a whole bunch of nothing, whatever you want to do. Just harness a little bit of energy and put it into a workout and you'll feel so much better than if you hadn't. Don't fight me on this one, try it out. This new 7 minute workout is perfect for providing a quick burst of energy...
I absolutely love kettlebells. I have two, one's 25 pounds and the other is 35 pounds. The lighter one is perfect for doing more challenging, one arm, overhead exercises, and the heavier is better for more isolated work on the lower body where you can get pretty heavy with the weight before you feel a significant muscle burn. I'd love to use the heavier one for the overhead stuff, but I just cannot manage proper form with it yet, I hope to get there one day though. Consistent practice will keep building strength, so I'm gonna keep moving forward. Try this awesome new intro kettlebell cardio workout with me and see how much fun it is...
