Where did the time go?? Time to catch you up :).
DAY 29 of #100DaysofRevivingFitness! Today was the last day of the first month of #PiYo and I finished up with a good 'Sweat' workout. I'm excited to try more of the other workouts in the program this round. My mom's in for a visit and I'm excited to have her try some of the recipes I've been fixing over the past few weeks. My mom came bearing gifts--I enjoyed a #P90Xrecovery drink post-workout. Can you say orange creamsicle? Yum!!
Today was DAY 30 of #100DaysofRevivingFitness. I woke up early to have my first go at the #PiYo Sculpt workout. It was challenging, but I'm looking forward to having another go at it in a couple of days now that I know what to expect. I'm excited to share something that I'll be adding to my health regimen for the next 30 days--maybe more! I purchased the 30 day Alkalinize pack from the Beachbody #UltimateReset program. As I was reading about the benefits of it, the words "reduce inflammation" caught my attention since my doctor told me that increased inflammation is what caused my eyes to go blurry a few weeks ago. I'm all about reducing inflammation in my body! When I mentioned my #Alkalinize purchase to my mom, she thought it would be interesting if I measured my pH balance before, during, and after. So I took my before pH measurements, and guess what? My body is pretty acidic (5.5!!)--which explains the inflammation. I was so excited when my Alkalinize packets arrived today...just in time to start incorporating the packs into my daily routine for DAY 31. I'll keep you all updated!
DAY 32--my 31st Birthday! It's hard to believe I'm 31, but I'm blessed to have been able to spend another year with family and friends. There was no workout done yesterday and I also indulged in a couple of treats, and I feel okay about it . I mostly enjoyed spending time with Scott, Trey, and my mom who's in town visiting. Make the most of every moment, friends--big or small. #100DaysofRevivingFitness
DAY 33 of #100DaysofRevivingFitness. I'm getting back on track with my #PiYo workouts. Today was a "Sweat" day and I was able to do some of the exercises with more strength than I have in the past! What an awesome feeling! I've been focusing on drinking warm lemon water to help reduce inflammation and detox tea to get rid of antioxidants in my body--and trying to stay on top of my water intake. Today was day 3 of drinking the #Alkalinize packets. I'm excited to see how things are changing in my body at the end of this week. Side Note: You may be wondering why I have a picture of my work materials on the ground....I was told that I have new office furniture arriving soon (an awesome birthday gift) so I'm in transition . #GettingHealthy
DAY 34. Did my Core #PiYo workout today...with my little spotter making sure I hit all my positions correctly . Feeling good today!
I had my second go at the #PiYo Drench workout for DAY 35 of #100DaysofRevivingFitness and I really didn't want to do it. I mean, I reallllly didn't. I wasn't able to get my workout in early in the morning the way I typically like to do...I ended up getting it in around 4:30 pm. I was so tempted to take another rest day and push it off until tomorrow, but I knew I had no real excuse for doing that, so I did it anyway! And I'm SO glad I did. I felt great after and I did WAY better on Drench this time than I did last time. I also knocked out my plank hold for the #PlankChallenge. Want to join the plank challenge? it's not too late! #GettingHealthy
DAY 36...here's a look at my pH balancing drink . I had a full day today and didn't get everything done that I was hoping to. That's life, right? Tomorrow's a new day! #100DaysofRevivingFitness
DAY 37. Today was a Buns day...catching up on my workouts . #100DaysofRevivingFitness
DAY 38. No PiYo for me today, but I took a nice 3 mile hike with family here in Idaho. What are you up to today? #GettingHealthy
DAY 39 was a rest day and DAY 40 was a travel day. We spent the weekend with family in Idaho and had a couple of layovers along the way. It was a challenge for me to maintain my healthy eating and to get my PiYo workouts in, but I'm okay with that. I'll get back on track in the morning #100DaysofRevivingFitness#GettingHealthy
Today was DAY 41 and I'm still trying to get back on track. Nutritionally, I'm back on it but I was feeling really tired today and had a doctor's appointment that really threw my schedule off. Yes, I took another rest day. I feel like my body really needed it after a full day of traveling yesterday. I did get some good news from the doctor and I'm REALLY excited. It looks as though the changes I've made over the past few weeks are paying off! Praise God!!
DAY 42 of #100DaysofRevivingFitness. It's such a great feeling to be off of all prescribed medicine now. I'm going to continue to focus on the good, healthy, & natural medicine--food! I'm excited to try out some new recipes over the next few days. I'll be sure to let you know how they turn out .
