Music inspires, it invigorates. It heals a bad mood and can remind you that someone broke your heart just as you were starting to forget. I was a dancer in the past, and music motivates me to run instead of to walk, to pick up my pace just a little more, and to keep going when my energy is starting to falter. Before I even started to workout, to speed walk, and to run I made a playlist to prepare myself to make it joyful and fun. Music keeps me going then, and today music motivates me to begin anew.
Duran Duran just happens to be on my running playlist, and when I first began this blog I would practice my burpees to New Moon on Monday. ( I practiced burpees. Have you done them? Don’t judge) My former trainer Mike and I worked on them over and over. I tried not to be embarrassed because I was a beginner. Here I am after my move and it feels like I am a beginner all over again.
Starting over after my move is not easy but my commitment begins today. I have no shame, here I am and ready to run. I really missed my regular scheduled workouts and running, and my body feels it. My weight is dropping again, and now I add my workout and running schedule since things are starting to revert back to a routine here in Los Angeles. My next charity will occur when I hit 164 lbs, and I will announce what I plan to do soon. Back on track, back on track. Have you ever slacked off for a few months and found yourself a little slower and softer? Mondays are perfect for new beginnings.
Here is my plan for the week.
This week I will run 3.1 miles three times a week. If I am not running, I will be speed walking and getting plenty of cardio in. My day off will be Sunday.
I will do melissa bender fitness workouts three to five times a week depending on time but at minimum I will get it in there times a week. I am doing her Bikini Prep Series. Each week I will do three to five workouts, starting with day one.
Today is a new day, my new moon on Monday. Coffee first!! That was non negotiable in the very beginning as it is today.
