The 4th of July weekend continued with lots of fun. My child joined me for a full-body workout, which was great.
I finally got my replacement GoPro and I am back with my daily vlogs on this wellness journey! I really missed making content. In this episode I take a walk, have a reflection, go swimming, do step aerobics, do yoga, and hit a fireworks show with the family. Summer doesn’t get better.
This weekend while swimming in the lake, I thought to take some footage of swimming underwater and my GoPro drowned! I lost some footage, but here is the last footage, which is a back and biceps workout. A new GoPro should arrive tomorrow, so until then…enjoy!
Today’s episode was simple with leg day and some shoulders.
I begin an 8-week soft cut today to get me through the summer, and reflect on my fear of losing weight. I crush a chest and triceps workout.
A big cardio day today with 60 minutes of learning a new advanced step routine, followed by a reflection about embracing the joy of being on a wellness journey.
Today was a beautiful day on this wellness journey with kayaking, tacos, chest and triceps, and some cardio.
A simple day today and a simple full-body workout using dumbells and a bosu ball.
Today was one of my favorite days on this journey so far. I feel that I checked all the boxes, including back and biceps workout, a run, yoga, kayaking, good food, and time with loved ones. It was a win!
I got in a lot of movement today with house cleaning and leg day.
I had a busy today on my wellness journey with a walk, a triceps and chest session in the home gym, some self care, some writing, and a date night at home. It was a fun, fulfilling day.
Today’s crush is a full-body workout, joined by my family in the weight room. It was a nice workout, and a beautiful day.
Episode 10 sees a legs and shoulders workout, some dinner, and a solo kayak paddle with reflection.
I had a jam-packed day today with work, but I got it done and then made time for a back and biceps workout. I also squeezed in mowing the lawn and making some chive blossom vinegar.
I was so excited to hit our new home gym yesterday. I went light and did a full body workout. Check out Episode 8 of my wellness journey, which features the workout, a weigh-in, and a reflection.
I hope that this is the last day that I have to work around an injury. I feel like I am ready to do some light lifting and cardio again, and resume this journey the way that I envisioned it! In Episode 7 I do 90 minutes of yoga, some core work, and have a walk. I think I’m ready.
Oh! The thrilling life of a 42-year-old woman! In this episode I go for a walk, do some gardening, make dinner, and mourn that I still cannot lift weights due to a back injury. It is — in short — precisely what is expected of a middle-aged life…at least today. I hope tomorrow I can crush some goals.
Today I was able to do 15 minutes each of cardio and yoga, but I did pay for it a little bit at night. I did not get much footage of the day, but did have some reflection about wellness: desiring wellness is a big deal in a society that values illness.
