Neal nor I wanted to be the first one to take a shower this morning as we both laid in bed while our alarms kept ringing. He assumed I would be up and at 'em as I had been doing consistently for the last week. I said, "No, I just want to sleep today!" How long did that last? Only another 5 minutes until Walden's head stayed firmly planted to the right of my sluggish body on the bed, letting out little whimpers every 3-5 seconds. Sasha sat like a princess at the bedroom door awaiting her butler (me) to open it for her, she too was whimpering every 3-5 seconds. I suppose there is no sleep to be had.
Instead of getting ready for the day by cleaning myself up, putting away drying dishes and starting breakfast, all a part of my usual routine, I worked out! I opened up an email from the Tone it Up girls from their Holiday Hottie series I signed up for a week or so ago, and I began the Fine Toning Arm Routine. After 10 minutes, I realized I was done with the AM workout (these were actually yesterday's workouts, but I worked almost 11 hours yesterday and decided not to work out...who can blame me).
I really like the Fine Toning Arm Routine, it would be great paired with a run, but it's frickin' cold outside and I don't run in the cold & I especially don't run in the dark! After all, it's not even 6 am! So I decided I would do the PM workout they posted yesterday, the Goddess Workout. The Goddess Workout is sorta like a power yoga without all the asanas and meditative movements. You power through the moves, though they aren't all linked together. Somewhere between Warrior 2 Lunge and Warrior 3 Fine Toning on my second round, I remembered that I was planning on going to Hot Yoga tonight on a guest pass! "Oiy Vey! Why do I do this to myself? My memory sucks!" Those were the thoughts running through my mind as I pushed myself to complete the 2nd round of the TIU Goddess Workout. Tonight will feel like a new day after I work, and I will push through my first ever HOT YOGA class! Pray for me :)
By the way, did you see the list of November Workouts? I try to update it every day so you can see the workout I am doing. I try to include links or details so you too can try the workout!
Question of the day
Have you ever done Hot Yoga? If so, any tips?
