Good morning!  I’m popping in to share my moves for the past couple days!  This little challenge has been a great motivator for me, and I look forward to continuing on over the next month.

Yesterday was day two, and I was able to get in an awesome 45 minute spin class at the gym.  Keith and I have been doing really good at alternating spin classes, so while one of us stays home with the baby, the other one can get a little time away.  The instructor, and our great friend Sean, teaches Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 9am.  So far our little routine is working quite well!  While I’m on maternity leave, this also gives me a great chance to see friends and join the real world for a couple hours haha. 😉  We did the newest class last night, which has some awesome music and a good mix of sprints, fast downhills, climbs and transitions.  It’s crazy how much Kallen motivates me now. When I start to doubt myself, I just picture his little face cheering me on, and I get a little boost.  I was reminded of an awesome quote the other day, “What doesn’t challenge you doesn’t change you.”  It’s sooo true.  It’s too easy to get in a comfort zone where the exercise kinda hurts, but it’s sustainable.  I kept repeating that quote over and over, and it got me to push just a bit harder.

Ok, so on to day 3 (today).  After a few days of intense workouts, my body definitely needed a break. Also, my parents are coming in to town today, so my day is pretty full.  I decided to try a Daily Burn yoga workout.  I went with Corey, my favorite trainer so far, and chose the restorative yoga option.  Only 16 minutes too.  It was a good mix of hip openers, breathing exercises and upper body stretches, which is just what I needed.

I’m not sure what’s on tap for tomorrow, possibly another Daily Burn workout?  I already feel more energized, and I can’t wait to continue on.

On a side note, I am loving my new haircut and color!
