Another morning of working out is in the books. I love getting back to my routine. Not that I don't love a trip to the Maldives (I may mention this in every post for awhile, you've been warned!), but when I'm not on vacay it feels good to start the day with fitness.
Today I grabbed the iPad and got warmed up with Yoga Camp. The intention for day 18 was I Surrender. I kept this on my mind during all of my workouts.
During yoga I tried to let go of my obsession to make every pose perfectly aligned. I surrender my need for perfection.
During the Fitness Bender: Butt & Thigh video, I pushed through the squat jumps even though my legs were burning by that point. I surrender feeling intimidated by shaky legs.
I learned about Fitness Blender from my friend Nicolasa. They have a ton of free workout videos. I followed up my leg workout with Upper Body Workout. I surrender to the power of weights.
Yoga, legs, arms, core. I was busy this morning and I love it! I'm sure there are lots of reasons why working out in the morning rocks, but here are some of mine:
2. Sweat-n-shine then I'm ready for the day - I definitely have more energy to take on the day.
3. Rumor has it we work out more in the AM - for me this is so true. Life gets in the way if I try to workout later in the day. It's easier to get it done first thing.
4. Starts the calorie burning furnace for the rest of the day - I don't know how this works, but it's ok with me if it's true!
After all that working out, I took my sweaty self for a walk to cool off and look who came out to play. My shadow! I haven't seen sunshine in about 5 days and wow, I missed it.
