Sunday Sweats [Week 1]




This is my First Week participating in this linkup and the first week I officially got back to exercising. Overall, it was a great week. I felt motivated most of the week to work out. I actually thought it would be more of a challenge to get motivated. I took the workouts slow and tried not to push too hard. By the end of the week I was pushing myself a little more and it felt great. A couple of nights due to stress I almost wanted to not workout and eat ice cream instead. But, I did workout and did not eat ice cream (partly because we didn't have any ice cream).  This was a very challenging week for me mentally and emotionally. But, in the end I took all that anxiety and stress to my yoga mat and to my 21 day fix workouts. 

Week 1 

Monday , 4-20:   

45 minutes yoga 
30 minutes Total Body Cardio Fix
The Total Body Cardio Fix completely kicked my butt. I took it easy and modified most of the workouts but I definitely felt it after words and for the next three days. Especially in my legs. 


Tuesday, 4-21: 

20 minutes Yoga
30 minutes upper Fix
I tried to take it a little easier today and was glad to mostly be able to work out my upper body and give my legs a break. It felt great to be lifting weights again. 

Wednesday, 4-22:

15 minutes yoga
30 minutes Lower Fix
This was the night I wanted Ice cream and wanted to skip working out. I did not feel motivated at all to workout and had a very stressful day. But, I decided to at least do a short yoga practice and it energized me enough to do the lower fix. 

Thursday, 4-23: 

15 minutes yoga
30 minutes Pilates Fix
I started my workouts later then I anticipated I would. But, I figured I would still get my Pilates fix in and do a short yoga practice. It was nice to have a "break" and just be able to stay on my yoga mat. But, by no means was it easy. I felt it in my abs. 

Friday, 4-24: 

25 minutes yoga
30 minutes cardio fix
I was back at the Cardio with a vengeance today. I gave it my all. It felt great to push myself a little harder. 

Saturday, 4-25: 

45 minutes Yoga
30 minutes Dirty 30
I did not sleep much the night before. I was not feeling good and something happened that seriously triggered my anxiety. I was really lethargic and working out was the last thing on my mind. But, I did the Heart Healing Meditation from Kathryn Budig and Kia Millers Power to your heart videos on yogaglo. It was just what I needed and I plan on devoting 40 days to do the Power to your heart Kriya. 

I managed to get my Dirty 30 in. This is the exercise I was the most worried about. Maybe because of the name. But, I think it is actually my favorite workout. I pushed myself and was more motivated then ever. It was a great stress reliever. By the end of it I was too tired to worry much about anything. 

Sunday, 4-26: 


45 Minutes Power to Your heart Kriya
30 minutes Yoga Fix
Today is a great day to do yoga. I am committed to the Kriya for 40 days and to have a "rest" with the yoga fix. 


Overall, I am really proud of myself this week. I did not let things stop me from doing my yoga practice and doing my 21 day fix workouts. It is something I actually am looking forward to now. I am more motivated then ever to get a rockin' hot body and to more importantly get healthy. 

I will be posting my 21 day fix Week 1 results up on the blog tomorrow as well so look for that if you are interested.
