April is almost over so I decided to dedicate the last two Wednesdays in the month to someone who has inspired me to keep my fitness goals on track. I will call it Healthy Wednesday shout outs. This has been one crazy month, with school, work, and keeping up with household chores a girl could really use a break from all those squats (just a day).
One woman that truly inspired me to get through my squats was Laura Harris from chickentuna, she really is an inspiration for me to be the best I can be. Many of you know I do not have too much support from my friends and family, so I have really gravitated to the blogging community so many of you are so friendly, supportive, and encouraging I feel as if I am on top of the world (I mean it).
Chickentuna is one lady I feel is my best friend in my head (every one that inspires me is), every time I cannot take another squat I push on thinking what would Laura say? If she can do her regular workouts and add squats to her regimen so can I. The killer part is she is in her 40’s with the body of an 18 year old; this just motivates me even more to kick butt when I work out, and push through those squats until I reached my goal for the day.
If any of you have never gone to her page please do (she has an instagram), you will find lots of motivation and great inspiration for those days when you have just had enough. You may start stalking her page (yea I am a stalker) just the way I do…
I am sorry I was a way for the whole weekend but I got super sick and good barely move, it didn’t help that it rain the whole weekend either. The rain took it a little longer for me to try and get better but I am almost there. I have been slacking off with one of my goals to do more yoga because I was having a hard time finding workouts online that would let me watch more than 10 minute previews. I am happy that I found Hulu not only do they have my Korean dramas but I can do yoga as well, and thank heavens for those commercial breaks because when going into plank mold I felt like I was going to die. I realized that my core is essential to performing my workouts better and even though I am proud of myself for doing a 40 second plank, the shaking while going through the yoga poses made me realize that it is time for me to focus on my core for strength. I so relieved for the yoga videos that I can afford to watch (free) yay!!! Now I have no excuses as to why I am not completing one of my goals for the year.
Good morning everyone! Don’t you just love Sunday it’s a day to relax and get ready for the work week ahead. With school and work during the week; it seems Sunday is the only day that I get to do yoga for a full hour. Today we will be trying yoga with a fitness ball this will be a new experience for me. Has anyone ever done yoga on a fitness ball? If so was it challenging? I love the way yoga makes me feel; after my practice I feel complete and at ease. Yoga tends to clear the mind of worries and fear the way cardio does but with less sweating. I love the deep meditation at the end of the practice. I have learned when you meditate the mind does not half to always be clear of thoughts. It’s ok to think when meditating it helps you learn to clear your mind. I have been doing yoga for about four months now and I can say that I more limber then when I first started. I am also at peace with myself, and would encourage all of you to at least try it once. I guarantee you will fall in love with yoga like I did :). Today’s yoga forecast in sunny AZ is cloudy at 90 degrees. I love cloudy so this is perfect weather too me even at the very warm temperatures.
His and her fitness balls yes I do force my boyfriend to do yoga with me! Its ok he will thank me later 🙂
