I want to share this photo with you today to encourage you that the work you put in every day DOES PAY OFF. It’s not just about how you look. It’s also how you feel. ✨The top left-2yrs post 1st baby. I put in hard work in the gym and in the kitchen. I didn’t […]
While I was in the hospital on bed rest, I got contacted by someone at http://www.diettogo.com, an online healthy meal ordering company, that I made the list of “The Top 100 Inspirational Weight Loss Bloggers You’ve Probably Never Heard Of (Until Now)“. I was floored. This was pretty exciting for me and totally unexpected. I […]
Here’s the thing, folks: I’m no one HIIT wonder (see what I did there?) I love the gym, I love classes, I love studios, I love to workout at home, and I love love love to workout outside. I actually have to mix it up because variety is fun and it stretches me out of […]
Well, it’s the first work week of the new year. Monday. It’s also time to start the week strong with fat burning and muscle building workout.
I usually take 1-2 rest days (Saturday & Sunday, or sometimes Wednesday & Sunday). When I want to kick it up a notch I only do 1 rest day, but with first trimester kicking my butt, 2 has been the number.
I will be 12 weeks pregnant on Wednesday and I’m finally feeling like we are climbing on up out of this. Five weeks of the utmost fatigue and queasiness and sinus pressure and headaches. Needless to say, if I can get my tennis shoes on without feeling exhausted, I’m winning for the day.
My husband asked me to make up a quick leg workout he could do that also incorporated some fat burning. His only stipulation when he saw the moves was that I had to do it too. Challenge ACCEPTED! So, I thought I would share my Monday workout with you and challenge YOU as well.
Make sure you warm up properly and feel free to grab a weight or two. I plan on using 10 lb weights for the whole thing.
*TIP: put one weight in the same hand of the leg that will lifting backward OR if your right leg is the supporting leg, put the weight in the left hand. Check out my fitness Instagram for a demo of the move later today.
Hope you enjoy this workout. If you try it, comment here or on my Facebook page or Instagram telling me how long it took you to finish.
Day 22 #cdflessonsfromyoga: Handstand| Adho Mukha Vrksasana
This is the last day! I’m sad!! The last lesson is to never ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER FORGET who you are!! If you don’t know who you are, find yourself. Whatever it takes, find who you are, love who you are, and never forget it! This lesson (and all the lessons I’ve posted) is something I’m still learning every single day. And I’m realizing that we will always be on a path of learning. So, remain teachable, always be a student. Stay humble. Never forget who you are and what you want. Your dreams are worth making reality. The world needs you. Do you hear me? The world needs you! You are alive for such a time as this and the world needs more people who walk in confidence and boldness. People who know who they are so deeply that they cause other people to find themselves, too.
With all the joy, the hope, and the love I can send your way, I’m honored to those of you who took this challenge. You are all winners in my book. You all were brave and took a chance. I would hope, if anything you take from this challenge, that you love and accept yourself right where you are for WHO you are!
