Move It Monday – Day One or One Day?

Day one or one day?

Choice is yours!

Today was supposed to be my day 1 of the updated, relaunched 21 Day Fix, but there is a slight delay with the captions (and captions contain important info like cues, safety information, counts etc) so I might push it off a bit and wait for the captions so I can do it safely and effectively instead of bumbling my way through (which isn’t something I’d do anyways, but certainly not pregnant, where doing a move wrong could be extra dangerous!)

I still got a workout in, which is good, because I had something stressful to face today and I needed the release!

What’s your go to when you have to face something you’d rather not?

 

Move It Monday – LIIFT4 Round 2!

Back at it! Round 2 began today!

“But Kara, I thought you were taking it a little easier?!”

And I am… I won’t be running as much, and I’m not focusing on increasing my weights as much as I am focusing on my nutrition, and mastering FORM…

But I still need to workout, I still need to move my body. That’s stress relief for me and now is definitely NOT the time to eliminate a much needed source of that!

Move It Monday – Memorial Day

There may be some people out there all “today’s a holiday, no need to workout”, whereas MY mindset is today may be a holiday BUT it’s a holiday HONORING those who can no longer get their sweat on; a day honoring the very people who fought so that I COULD!

A great way to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice is to get your sweat on in their memory and honor YOURSELF by moving your {{capable}} body.

A heartfelt thank you to all our brave servicemen/women 💕🇺🇸

Go sweat!

Move It Monday – Post Run Muscle Soreness

Raise your hand if your hamstrings were so sore you went to sleep on an ice pack last night?

Totally normal – a reentry into the running world, (especially at that pace 😉) after an almost 6 month hiatus… of course you’re gonna be feeling that!

Here’s where I know I’ve evolved; been empowered and enlightened. The OLD way of thinking would be “I’m sore, that’s a good reason to skip my workout” whereas now I know that MOVING my sore muscles will help get the blood flowing and ease the soreness, so it’s in fact a good reason NOT to skip a workout.

Plus I mean it’s Monday, so I had twice the incentive to move it!

Who else got Monday’s workout in?

Move it Monday!

Did y’all really think I was gonna let today – a Monday, the first DAY of the new year, nevermind the first Monday – go by without getting my sweat on?!

Noooo… sure, some things may be changing but that’s not one of ‘em! I’m still working on consistently doing things to become the best version of myself; continuing the good habits and working on releasing the bad ones.

Today sets the tone for the week, the month, the year… it begins a new book, so make your start amazing; make your story awesome!

Happy new year – who’s slaying?!
