I have this goal in my head for 2016...this is
As someone who loves both yoga and Pilates, this workout is PERFECTION! It challenges me, gets a good amount of strength training in, and has enough variety that I can use it as cardio on off days with one of the longer workouts...or like last night do a shorter workout (lower body in 20 minutes, yes please) after a run and it REALLY helps to relax and stretch those tight running muscles.
Ok, so the morning situation. Since I get up at 530 NOT to workout but because that's what time I HAVE to get up to get my big girl up and off to school by 7, my workouts happen AFTER work. Well, if I workout AFTER work, I need to shower after work...so that is what I have been doing. If I know I have to shower at night, it makes me more apt to do that workout...and if I shower at night, there is no chatty kitty to wake the hubs in the morning. I lay my clothes out in Mini Me's room the night before (as she snuggles with Dadoo once I am out of bed), and my makeup and hair stuff are all in the downstairs half bath now. It actually allows me a little more time in the mornings too so I am not as rushed packing lunches and making breakfast.
The other win out of this is that I have stopped obsessing about the numbers on the scale. Our scale is in the master bathroom. I had a habit of getting on it everyday....EVERY day, so each little fluctuation made me crazy. So with this new routine, I am not near the scale so my on;y weigh in options are the weekends, I am relying on how my clothes fit ans how I feel the rest of the week. This has proven to be a
I have also been back to my oil pulling 5 sometimes 6 days a week and I have to say...my teeth are whiter and my skin has a but more glow to it...it's probably a combination of everything, and I love it...so I know this is a plan we can stuck with for a while.
I HAVE added more carbs into my eating, but am making sure I am choosing healthy ones...more nuts and fruit...still avoiding pasta and breads and rices etc.
So that is where I am right now. Starting month 2 of 2016 strong and with a plan feels great!!! Oh and in case you are wondering, this month's challenge is the wall sit challenge. February is also going to have a GIVEAWAY so make sure you check back!
