Welcome to Workout #1 in my Fall Reset Workout Challenge. You will find the workout video and photo tutorial below.
Over the last few weeks my energy and motivation have waned. I felt myself growing more tired and struggled to get in my workouts. I haven’t been feeling my best physically, mentally or emotionally. So I decided that it’s time for a change.
This workout challenge is going to incorporate exercise, meditation and meal ideas. I recommend downloading the Insight Timer app. It’s a free meditation app with a large variety of meditations.
Today’s workout requires no equipment. For this workout program we are going to focus on short workouts. One of the keys to a successful exercise reset is to start with something that is easy to fit into your life. One round of today’s workout will take 15-minutes. You will be able to make time for a 15-minute workout. Of course, you have the option of repeating the workout for a longer, more intense exercise session.
During this challenge I want to you pay attention to the way exercise, nutrition and meditation makes you feel. You can use a journal, or make notes on your phone or calendar. Jot down what you did and note the impact it has on your mood and energy.
Our goal during this challenge is to achieve a mind, body and energy reset so that we feel better in all aspects of our lives.
We have two soup recipes to start the week off right and keep us warm this fall season. Both recipes will provide meals for a few days, and are easy to freeze.
The first recipe is courtesy of Rose Bruno Bailey. She will be sharing Vegan recipes with us once per week for #MeatlessMonday
