Confession: I suck at rest days. I've always been a very "busy" person, wanting to keep occupied, and when I started working out in my late 20's I never felt like I quite did enough to deserve a rest day. Well, with a lingering head cold that's now in my chest and my legs on fire from the weekend, my body finally decided to say "enough" and today the extent of my activity is going to consist of walking on my lunch hour. As I'm walking, I'm thinking about how I'm going to take rest days more often. I can learn to like this somehow, right?
Hello Monday! New day, new week, new accountability group and new routine! 🍏🍌🥑🥔🍗🥚 I'm already kinda liking this whole get up and rock the active rest day with a little one on one time with Em at the grocery store! And...Umm... the grocery store on a Monday morning - GOLDEN!👌🏻😄
#100Days : Day 7 of 100 - Active Rest Day (Stretch, Pilates and Yoga) This has to be my favorite workout. And the Pandora station shown. So relaxing. It feels so great to get a nice full body stress after beating up your body all week. This one is less intense as the last one I did a few weeks ago... I'm really hoping I don't have full body DOMS like I did last time. My attempt at meal prepping for work lunch. Lazy and needed something simple. Accidently sprinkled some cinnamon instead of cumin in my chipotle lime turkey 97/3 (6 oz) with basmati rice (70g) (Guac and Salsa shown go into it), yogurt and some almonds. I have more snack just didn't fix it up in time to show now. Yesterday's complete Stats
Today was my rest day. Don't let the word rest fool you. While I didn't do a formal workout I still stayed active and that's exactly how it should be. Rest days don't me sit and be still. It means recovering from intense workouts and letting your muscles repair. Beside the more sedentary you are the more you'll want to eat. #weightlossjourney , #melting , #shrinking , #positivevibes , #activerestday
Every time I go to Ipswich Wildlife Sanctuary, I have to stop by my favorite tree to bang out a few sets of pull ups! 💪🏼🌲@crueltyfree_lady and I spent over 3 hours here this morning, walking over 5 miles. We hand fed various types of birds 🐦 saw turtles mating 🐢 and saw red squirrels and chipmunks 🐿 scavenging around. #ActiveRestDay#WildlifeSanctuary#Calisthenics#PullUps
"Roads were made for journeys not destinations." - Confucius I had the best day today reliving some of my favorite childhood memories. There is something special about getting lost in the woods, hiking new trails and discovering new hills. Nature is my serenity and sometimes we just need to unplug from the world and enjoy all of our surroundings. Thank you @jennaferrose for an awesome day! ❤
Today was a nice wrap up of a busy week and weekend. We visited grandma and then went out to Findley State Park. The park is so clean and well taken care of with lots of criss-crossing trails, of all kinds. Mountain bike, hiking, bridle...they've got them all! There are also some really nice campsites and a public kayak launch at one of the boat ramps. I'm pretty sure we will be making a stop here for camping in the near future! All in all it was a beautiful day. Love spending my #sundayfunday outside with my best friend and most trusted travel partner. Love you @bigjfloyd ❤ #hiking#recoveryday#activerestday#lake#mybabe#heybabe#roadtrip#ohiostateparks#findleystatepark
Sunday is always #activerestday and a highlight of the week. It was a hell of a #softball season with @cmsachicago and I am so happy to have finished it on top with all these amazing ladies. Now on to football! #sundayfunday
Had to sneak in one more workout before heading out for vacation. What better way to re-center myself with a combo of a 3 mile hike and yoga finisher. Thanks to my BFF @fitgirl.26 for the invite. Those of you interested come join us for the next session next month let me know. The more the merrier!
