I have slacked off with working out this weekend. The stress of worrying about my nephew being in the NICU, and starting a new job a few weeks ago, has left me feeling 100% exhausted and worn out. I decided to take the weekend off of filming new workouts and blogging, and give myself some time to just relax and recuperate.
Dax is still in the NICU, but he is getting a little bit better every day. This week I plan on getting back on track with my workouts too.
I did some quick exercises just to keep my body moving, and get something in. Even though I was taking the weekend off, I feel better when I keep myself moving. You can check out my quick workout in the photo below.
Below I posted a link to a Full Body Bender Boot Camp Home Workout. When I filmed this workout I was super consistent with both my workouts and my running. I really want to get that consistency back into my routine. It seems like there have been a lot of challenges in my way lately. It’s time to re-focus. I can feel the differences in my energy, strength and endurance, and I want to get all of those things back on track.
I hope you all enjoy this workout.
