What's on tap for your Saturday or your weekend? Are you getting a workout in? Challenging yourself one day? Trying something new?
Whatever it is I know and you know it will be worth it! Go ahead and go for it.
I say this because it's all hard work. I have always believed there is no such thing as luck = it's all about hard work!
I've done a lot this week, really pushed myself and I'm really sore. I'm hoping you find a way to push yourself, too. Getting out of your comfort zone is how we grow - and that's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual! Just know it WILL be worth it!
Have fun this weekend!
And, by the way, my oldest son turns 16 tomorrow. How did that happen? I might get a little sad thinking about it. . .
What challenges you? What's out there you want to try?
Here is a NEW Challenge for you to try for Seven Whole Days . . .
We all know how important stretching is for our flexibility and joint range of motion. Not to mention it is my favorite part of any exercise class or workout! Nothing feels better than a good stretch - and nothing feels worse than stiff tight muscles! For whatever reason this seems to be the part of a fitness routine that is the first to go out the window. So, I'm joining a few other fitness bloggers out there (Check out Bessbefit.com) and challenging you to stretch every day - yes, that's right EVERY DAY for at least 20 minutes. You can even break the 20 minutes up if that suits. Anything counts, dynamic stretching, foam rolling (one of my favorites), yoga, static stretching, they all count.
You will LOVE how limber and flexible you will feel! It is never too late to begin working on flexibility. I constantly tell my husband he has GOT to stretch or he will not be able to put on his socks when he's 80 . . . and I don't want to do that for him!
And here's a NEW WORKOUT to get your body all warmed up and in need of a good stretch. We did this at my bootcamp class this morning - I'm not sure whether they loved it or hated it, but it got us all moving and sweaty! We went through it twice and finished with more cardio and added more upper body weights, but this is a great "base" to your workout. Give it a try, then finish with a good stretch!
Let me know what you think . . .
