Fit in 40 Day 3
Both my body and my blog are “Under Construction” but I think I’m getting the swing of both. I’ve finally got my head on straight about prioritizing ME and my workout routine. Yesterday contained a bit of self-sabotage as I fell back into the usual routine of housework/chores over a true workout. I felt myself justifying that cleaning 3000 sq ft over 3 levels burns calories too but it is in no way the type of workout that will get me to my goal in 40 days.
Because of my change in eating (at least I think that’s the reason) I haven’t had much morning energy these first few days. I do have the luxury as an at-home Mom of a home-schooled teen to pretty much begin my day whenever I get up but would much rather have an early start to every day as far as my workouts are concerned. I tend to wake feeling really stiff and sore especially in my back so I know it’s essential for me to start my day with some light stretching and walking to limber up. Part of my goal after 40 days is to be toned with increased strength so I know I must incorporate weight training.
So, from here forward, I intend to include the following in some portion, daily:
warm up/cool down/stretch
hiit or cardio
I’m thinking I will include a weekly yoga class and other physical activities too along the way just to keep things interesting and fun.
I’m slowly learning wordpress along the way. I’m not very tech savvy but so far it has been a relatively basic program with just a few hiccups that friends have easily helped with. I intend to follow some online tutorials to really enhance my blog to my liking since I’ve committed to this public accountability. Any advice is appreciated. Please me know in the comments how I’m doing so far. Feedback is valuable.
