This week in striving for immortality, my toe has healed nicely from the trampolining incident and I’ve been doing okay but not wonderfully at refraining from stress smoking and not stress-eating all the sourdough. It’s not easy, this willpower thing. There have been some setbacks but thanks to encouraging words on and offline, I’ve been powering on.
I’ll be moving to Chicago in one month! Hot damn. Cold damn? My weeks are getting busy; there are so, so many things to tie up or shut down, and lots of people to spend time with and say goodbye to. Getting to the gym more than twice a week is starting to feel impossible and so I’ve been turning to Fitness Blender for more convenient at-home workouts. Right now I’m really digging this 30-minute cardio video followed by this 10-minute ab workout.
I really want to try some different at-home workout websites soon, most likely beginning with Darebee and Blogilates given that many of you have been singing their praises. Any suggestions for others I should try?
If you’ve been doing the 30 Day Yoga Challenge, how’s that been going for you? A few of you seemed to be digging it pretty hard last week. I was half-assing it because of the toe situation and so I’ve decided that this week I’ll start over from Day One.
Our workout playlist is ready! The genre mix is definitely diverse but that’s expected, we did real good. It got me through this super intense 1,000 calorie HIIT workout that I feel great about completing but also never want to do again. Ever! Cheers to everyone who contributed.
