Happy Monday to you all! Is everyone starting their day and ending their day with a smile? We are especially for a weekend full of yummy pancakes.
Over the weekend we were busy keeping up with our Strong is Sexy Fitness Challenge. Hard to believe this is the beginning of the 3rd week. For those of you who are doing this challenge with us, how is it going? Noticing any improvements yet?
Thursday affirmation: “I live in awe and curiosity at the wonder of my body”
Workout was active rest day plus yoga. We did about 20 minutes of yoga. Michelle and I have started using our Gymboss Interval Timer for yoga/stretching intervals. For some reason we do really well with intervals for all our workouts. For instance, lately when we do yoga we set the gymboss timer to 9 rounds of 10 and 30 sec intervals. Gives us 10 sec to get into a new pose and hold it for 30 sec, it is marvelous. We usually repeat at least twice sometimes three times. We are loving it! We think our bodies are too haha It really helps us focus on the one move and hold it.
Friday affirmation: “I stand tall and move with grace”
Saturday affirmation: “I am rocking this fitness challenge!”
Instead of pilates for our active rest day, we did some light yoga at the house. Again we used the same intervals of 10 and 30 sec for 9 rounds and repeated that 3 times. Along with some of our favorite ab/core exercises.
Sunday affirmation: “I choose to see the gifts in my life. They are everywhere in and around me”
We did a 30 minute walk outside for our active rest day. It felt great to get outside. It has been awhile since we took a since long walk outside. In addition to our daily workouts we try to do 15 push-ups and 20 back flies each day, so far we have been doing them just about everyday.
Michelle and I are really starting to feel stronger in our bodyrock tv workouts. Each day we feel we get better with each exercise even with our yoga stretching!! We can go deeper in our moves. Although balance is something we need to work on, haha
Twins Question: What was your favorite thing you do did or ate all weekend?What is going to make you smile today? Do you like or dislike Mondays?
I seem to like Mondays, it is not my favorite day of the week but I do not mind it. It lets me know that it is a new week. A new week to get more accomplished and start fresh!
till next time, xoxo
