This is such a theatre move!!! When I saw this I got in the zone and all those musicals that I've been in rushed back and I totally did this for a minute!! Today was a better day. Maybe because I knew I was going to fail, and that freed me from pressure, that I did better than I thought I would.
Goodbye, for now, #max30 and here come the full on, old school #insanity. Wish this insane girl luck!
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 🍋 When life(or your mom) gives you pasta, you devour it. My aunt gave it to my mom after she finished work since she knows I’m a vegan. So grateful for her being thoughtful. The best things in life are free. Any act of kindness is worth more than money. ❤️ > 💰 Not saying that money isn’t essential for survival in our society but we put too much time and effort into chasing paper and stressing ourselves by thinking how to get more of it in the future. When the end is near, you won’t think about the expensive things you bought. I like my piano but it’s not the thought of it that brings me true joy. It’s the sound, the music which I create that will stay with me forever. When I went to NYC, it was the experience of meeting people and making new friends that really stuck with me. Jamming at the jazz club with musicians who were so down-to-earth and approachable, whom I thought would look down upon me as soon as I finished playing but who truly saw me as their equal. Getting to learn so much from just playing and watching(and filming) a pianist who let me into the music school I was auditioning for. Walking through the streets of New York at 3 in the morning and talking with people who opened their hearts to me. I know this sounds cheesy but I could feel the love and that my friend is beyond anything money can buy.
Did Friday Fight round 1 this morning, it started out great then I noticed my fitbit had paused. That made me said and I got off track.
Finally got my grove back then the shelf holding our Xbox fell from all the tuck jumps. Add in moving carpet squares and it made for an interesting workout and definitely one with many mental struggles. I was just happy I lived through it. I was also happy that my Max Out time was 8:18 which is the longest I’ve ever done that I can remember.
I also noticed this morning that after a few months the blister on my one foot is finally almost gone. Still need to get rid of the callus but it’s something that is for sure.
During my workout today I was feeling EXTRA grateful for my on-the-go gym and all the amazing programs it has. .
While I was in the gym in my apartment, there were a couple other girls in there running on the treadmill. All I could think was how I was SO happy that wasn’t me. I’m NOT saying running on the treadmill is bad. Those girls may have been LOVING every second of their workout! If you like to rock a treadmill workout, more power to ya 👊🏻💥 It’s just not for me! But for the longest time that WAS me because I felt like I HAD to do that to satisfy my idea of being in shape. .
When it was warm, I would run outside. Loooong runs, too. My knees took the hit for that. But when it got cold, all I knew to do for cardio (or all I felt comfortable doing in the gym for cardio) was to run on the treadmill. I took the free fitness classes at the gym in college buuuuut... I don’t have the luxury of *walking* to a gym where I get to take free classes anymore! After college, I had an apartment gym, two knees that didn’t allow me to run outside too much, and a sudden lack of energy and motivation to do something I had once loved to do. Those sprint workouts I did on the treadmill were one of the reason I would put off workouts... I hated them but I didn’t really know what else to do. And I go crazy just running on a treadmill at the same pace for more than 2 minutes (I’m not even joking... 2 minutes might be too generous). But I had it in my mind that I HAD to do cardio which meant I HAD to run 🤷🏼♀️
Ohhhh how wrong I was. I may have been panting, modifying some of the moves, and blinded by my own sweat today but in 30 minutes I got a killer cardio workout in full of squats and lunges and kicks and push ups and jumping and some moves that simply can’t be described and make me wonder if Shaun T really wants to kill me during these workouts. But I was so grateful that none of it involved a treadmill 👍🏻 .
Just spotted this in @womenshealthuk Michelle Keegan uses one of the BOD programs to keep in shape while filming. 👍 One of the best things about BOD is that you can do the workouts literally anywhere and there's plenty that require no equipment (such as Insanity)...link in bio for more info...#fitnessmotivation#workoutathome#insanity#max30#shaunt#fitness
