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!
