The past two days have been pretty groovy… except that my pain flare-ups have been frequent and intense! Not even ibuprofen has helped (no real surprise there). I’ve taken baths, had some massages from my devoted husband, and yet, there I was on my birthday and the day after my birthday. Hurting.
Luckily, walking tends to ease my pain, at least for an hour or so. So I went for a nice, brisk walk for about 30 minutes each day. Still, the pain returned. It was all right, I still managed to get done all the things I needed to, though I definitely crashed a LOT earlier than I usually would.
Since I missed my strength training workouts for those two days, I decided to do my best on the weekend, which brings me to my first workout that I managed with minimal pain! Today I decided to do legs and booty, check it out:
Alternate leg lifts: 3×8 side, 3×8 back
Plie squats: 3×10
Calf raise: 3×12
Seated calf raise with 20lb weight: 3×10
I still have to do my cardio, which will be walking with the kiddos on our favorite trail after naptime. I hope everyone is having a groovy weekend!
Good magical morning everyone! I have been trying my best to stay on my feet since I finished my first cup of coffee this morning (it’s 10:41am now), and this is a habit I’ve been working on building for quite some time! It helps my back, but of course after standing and walking and bending all day, my knees start to twinge a little).
I had the rest of Shadow & Bone to finish before I recorded my book review, which meant this morning called for a little bookish workout to start the day! (And yes, I’m pretty stoked to hear that Netflix is making a GrishaVerse show!!!)
I have the misfortune of having kind of a square butt. Kinda annoying, right? So I want to shape these cheeks and build some nice round glutes! (Unlike my last workout post, I’m definitely not subjecting you guys to a photo of my butt lol)
Today’s workout consisted of:
3×8 Squats (feet placed parallel to hips)
3×12 Standing Leg Lifts (forward, side, and back, per leg)
3×8 Plie Squats
3×10 Walking Lunges
After that, my lower body was BEAT! Breakfast was an avocado and 2 hard boiled eggs with some salt and pepper. A nice little vegetarian breakfast to end a workout and start the rest of the day!
Let’s go be awesome, folks!
