Welcome to this week’s workout schedule. I have 5 workouts in this week’s rotation.
This week’s #BFBodyFit Workout Schedule includes the following types of workouts:
Strength Training Workout
Total Body or Area Focused Workout (This one will rotate)
This workout combination style provides cardio, strength training, and flexibility training. The combination will help you achieve your ultimate health and wellness, and help with injury prevention. I have been incorporating more focus into my workout style to creating a holistic approach.
Since having my son, I struggle at times to get in all of my workouts. This approach, and schedule, helps keep me on track. It’s important to incorporate all facets of fitness to maximize your physical health.
This winter has been physically and mentally challenging for me. It has been brutally cold and snowy. In fact, I woke up this morning to several inches of snow outside again today. I’m thankful for home workouts, but I definitely miss the ability to go outside for a walk or run. I do most of my walking and running with my son in the running stroller, so during bad weather it isn’t an option for me anymore. I am anxiously anticipating the change of seasons, and increased warmth and sunshine.
I have been focusing on meditation, and organization at home to help improve my focus. I find that when I am home, if things are disorganized, I have trouble focusing on my self care and wellness. My to-do list lingers with guillotine like intentions, and I find it harder to be present and committed to my workouts. The problem with that is, my son is one. Having a one year old, means there is a pervasive amount of disorganization occurring at any given moment, and it flows into my workout space.
This week, my organization goal is to declutter and donate. I have been making a lot of progress, but we still own too much stuff. Living in a less cluttered/cleaner space is linked to decreased stress and improved food choices. Did you know that clutter is actually linked to over eating?
The Home Organization Project: Below are some of the things I have done so far.
- Frame and Hang Photos (photos and frames have been hanging around and creating clutter)
- Organize clothes and toys my son has outgrown
- Get rid of clothes we no longer like/wear (not done with this)
- Declutter Tupperware drawer and recycle anything we don’t use
- Declutter the top of the fridge
- Get rid of socks with no match
We hosted our first Easter over the weekend (usually one of my sisters hosts the holiday), and my organization, prep, and planning made the holiday go smoothly and stress free for myself and our guests.
I created a menu, and did as much prep as possible the day before, to limit my obligations on the day of. The result, was a beautiful family holiday, where I got to enjoy my time with everyone instead of stressing about getting everything done. Do you have any organization tips or techniques? Comment below and let me know.
I look forward to working out with you. Let me know how you like this week’s scheduled exercise program.
Enjoy enjoy the exercises. There are 5 routines for you to try this week.
