|I love my husband! This was a surprise gift.
‘Ello. I’m still feeling the love after last night’s Supernatural Saturday. Not a Whovian or into Orphan Black? Give them a watch. Trust me.
What else is happening? Well, turns out I’m not the only one in my family with back issues. Dad had some and had to wear a hard core back brace on occasion. Thanks, dad. Cardiovascular issues and spinal issues. But seriously, I wish you were still her so I could hassle you a little.
The spine is still kinda crumbly, but I’m going to work with instead of against them. Can’t lift or jump or run right now? That’s ok, doc. Low impact cardio? Sweet! Shaun T, Tai Cheng, Pilates, yoga, walking, and body weight resistance to the rescue! I won’t overdo it. I’ll star with 2-3 days of more than walking and add more as I get stronger.
Shaun T and low impact don’t seem to go together, right? But before Insanity, there was Hip Hop Abs and Rockin’ Body. Besides, I love dancing. I spent many, many nights (weeknights and weekends) dancing and still have random afternoon dance breaks. And, you know, he is very nice to look at and listen to. I mean inspirational. I meat hot. I mean motivating. Actually, he’s all of the above.
| Interested in Rockin’ Body or Hip Hop Abs?
‘They’re on sale for $19.95 each right now.
So, do you want to share random chatter with me? Food, drink, fitness, dance, other? Give me a shout.
Until next time, peace.
I’ll hit the big 44 on March 30 and am celebrating the milestone by kicking up the wellness a notch. Care to join me?
You don’t have to buy anything. You just have to commit to 30 days of something better for you health. Cleaner eating, regular exercise, mediation, less coffee – you decide. Me, I’ll be eating cleaner (vegetarian, good fats, lots of produce and good protein) and starting Chalean Extreme (strength training for increased strength and fat burning). These are my goals, my plan for the month (and beyond). What are yours?
The goal is to push beyond where I am now. I am my own competition. Well, and hubby in a way. We challenge each other to move toward our goals and sort of compete to see if my home workouts or his gym workouts are better. I know home workouts are better for me, period. The hermit in me would rather get my sweat on without the potential audience. The dogs watch, but they get bored and move on. I’m sure people are focused on their own workouts at the gym, but in my mind, they’re peeking over at the limping big girl, wondering why she’s bothering.
I know. It’s my messed up way of thinking. I’m working on it.
But for March, it’ll be a better focus on better eating, lifting heavy four days a week, and at least one cardio workout on a fifth. For cardio, I’ll mix it it between my favs. Why Chalean Extreme? Shorter workouts (which my aching back will appreciate), lots of lifting (which I love), and less cardio (not my favorite thing). I lift now, but I don’t think I’m lifting enough or following the most effective routine. So I’m turning to an expert.
So, what do you say – wanna kick it up with me in March? Join me here, G+, or on Facebook. How will you challenge yourself?
Until next time, peace!
Whatever I did to offended or upset you, I’m sorry.
The funky, instant rash on my hand was genius. And your timing? Flawless. Not only did you make it happen and fade before my doc’s appointment, you brought it back a day and a half later. Nice.
This ick kicking my butt? Great move. I feel like crud and cannot think clearly. And having the fever kick in today? Well done.
Now please, I beg you, please cut it out.
I’ll be going back to bed now.
