Happy New Year!
We’ve both been very busy in the past few months. I won’t make excuses about being MIA, although I did go on a week-long vacation to Thailand, and then spent my time back home making up for the travel by working 6-day work weeks. It was long.
So new year, new goals, new things to try! On top of going vegetarian (with an allowance for fish once a week, if wanted), I’m also excited to try a bunch of new at-home workouts I found cruising around the internet, and getting thrown at me by Pinterest.
I’m also going to try to get my runs in in the mornings, since I don’t have a lot of energy on my days off. I know running energizes me, and I think it’ll be good to do that, in order to lift my spirits before going in to work.
On top of that, I’m adding small bits of home workouts to the routine when I can. This week, I’m trying this one, from Prevention magazine.
Since I’m also trying to keep the yoga going, this is a good one to tie into that. Keep the yoga routine to 15 minutes or less, do this, and then go for a run. It’s a lot to do in the morning, but I’m usually up by 8am, and don’t have to leave for work until 11am. I can do this while Mark is still asleep, and be showered and ready to go by the time he’s up and moving around.
I’ll try this one out until I go to England at the end of the month, and will discuss the results when I finish. I should take my measurements to see if a change occurs, but at the moment I’m bleeding and bloated, so I’ll take those measurements when that’s all done.
