I realized something over this past holiday. I did not work out the way I should have. I then came back and tried to get right into my regular routine of teaching and working out, then you know what happened? I hurt my back the first day back. I was sitting in a car for hours, sitting in a chair at Panera for over 8 hours (due to my key debacle of Thanksgiving 2015) and I was not exercising. I was teaching class on Monday night and after adjusting someones form in seat work, I felt a pop in my back that immediately radiated down to my toes.
It was completely my fault. I took way too much time off over the holiday and expected my body to just jump right back into the routine. I swear once you hit 30, your body does not bounce back that quickly especially after you calorie soaked it with dairy and wine. My game plan for this month is to exercise at least four times a week between barre classes, at home workouts and running.
I am going to get my Fitbit Charge HR up and running again to start a challenge. Who wants in?
To help with this, I’ve made a high energy workout playlist. Found some great at home workouts and I signed up for our studios Pure Barre Challenge, 15 classes in 31 days.
To stay accountable I am going to track my progress here since I have lots of you who will kick my butt if I fall off. I am going to stay healthy this December and not let any holiday laziness creep up.
Here are some great workouts I found!
This is a great 20 minute one to do when you travel. I actually did this one when we got to Atlanta over the past weekend. No equipment needed.
Naturally to help motivate, cute workout clothes always help. I’m all about those mesh insert details right now. LnA and KORAL activewear are two of my favorite lines right now. MICHI has really perfected the whole barre to bar concept. I have been also loving my S’well bottle it really does live up to the hype of keeping water cold all day long. Even sitting in my car in Florida, it’s still cold. Craziness.
