Good morning, ladies! Happy Friday! I hope you’re all ready to kick butt with your workouts and healthy eating this weekend. Remember, it’s always best to plan, so if you haven’t done so already, plan when you’re going to work out and what you’re going to eat/prep, so that you’re prepared for what the weekend throws your way.
Yesterday wasn’t the best day for me. I had a terrible headache from early on in the day, and it just made me feel awful. I had a bunch of stuff to do, and so like most of you would, I pushed through. But, I was lethargic. I tried to take a nap in the half hour I had before I had to pick my kids up from school, but it seems as though the second I fell asleep, my alarm went off. (Isn’t that always what seems to happen?) Anyway, I didn’t get a workout in until I did yoga last night at 10:30. That’s right. 10:30 at night. I still had remnants of a headache, but felt like I wanted to move because I was so stiff. So I did a 22-minute yoga workout. I was seriously off-balance, and I was falling all over the place, but it felt good to move. Every day won’t be perfect, but you do what you can and listen to your body. And yesterday, yoga was all my body could muster.
Because I didn’t get a new workout filmed for you yesterday, here’s a throwback workout. It’s a great leg and core workout, and I love the setup for this one. For each round, there are 2 exercises that you’ll do for 45 seconds each, then 35 seconds each, then 25 seconds each. Your legs and core should be burning by the end! If you can, try to repeat this workout once, or pair it with another workout from the challenge or workout that you can find on my YouTube channel, Phoenix Wellness.
