Welcome to today’s workout. I have three short workout videos for you today. Each video is between 5-10 minutes long. Quick workouts can be easier to customize and fit in throughout the day.
You can choose to go through each workout once, or repeat any of the workouts to make it a longer, more intense routine.
The struggle is real: Lately, I have really been struggling to get in my workouts. Last week I wasn’t able to film any new workouts because we couldn’t find a baby sitter due to the holidays. It feels like every time I get my workouts and consistency on track something happens to throw me off track again. It’s like the old Paula Abdul song: “I take two steps forward, I take two steps back.”
To add to the issue I was having back pain and a muscle spasm in my low back. I couldn’t get rid of it, until I finally started my split stretching routine. I can still feel some tightness there, but I will continue to do my stretches.
New Workout Challenge: I am planning a new workout challenge. It helps me to stay on track, and it will be a great way to jump start our fitness goals together through the new year. I will be posting more about the challenge as I cement the details.
What are your holiday goals? Let me know in the comments below. I have so many fitness related goals that it feels a little overwhelming, but I am going to put together a list and share it with you. We can achieve our goals together. We need to remember to treat ourselves with kindness on this journey.
I will be seeing you soon with new workouts.
