Lori: “We probably need to discuss workouts again it has been awhile.”
Michelle: “Ya it has been over 2 weeks.”
haha, this is how one of our many conversations went these past few days.
We did not mean to take such a long break from working out, but due to Michelle traveling, Lori building fence, both of us adjusting to new work/life schedules, setting aside dedicated workout time was not the main focus. Yes there were some days when we did our plank workout, but generally moving and sweating like we usually do, just was not happening.
We are firm believers that if you are dealing with other stresses in your life, it is best to relax the body when you can. Even though workouts are great for health, they still put stress on the body.
Although we must say we are both very happy to be back doing our workouts as we have missed them!
We are going to start documenting our workouts again here on the blog to help keep us on track.
One reason why we blog is to keep track of our daily workouts to help us continue to reach our fitness goals. It is nice having the blog to document everything for accountability purposes.
We are excited to start sharing our daily workouts again. We hope by us sharing our fitness journey we can inspire you to start yours again, if you got off track too.
That is one great thing about life. You have the power and choice to start again.
Speaking of workouts.
This morning we did our 5 minute plank workout for our warm-up followed by 10 different leg exercises that we performed twice with weights. We forgot how much we love lifting our legs.
one fitness goal of ours is to get a little more muscle on our legs, a little toner
We ended our leg workout with push-ups (did three sets of 15 reps). We always like to do push-ups daily to keep our upper body strong. Then did a little cool down of stretching.
Post workout smoothie: about 1 cup water, 2 frozen bananas, 2-3 stalks of green (this one is swiss chard based).
Tomorrow we are thinking an arm workout.
What is your one fitness goal that you are working on now? If you get off or have gotten off track with workouts, how do you go about getting back on track? Do you record your workouts daily for accountability?
