Learned about this podcast from @paleomg and it has been a game changer! 🙌🏼 it has been a stress and anxiety filled week. Instead of losing my shit on my awesome husband, I turn @wineandcrimepod on and walk. These three ladies are hysterical and I just get lost in the episodes. It helps me to realize I’m not THAT bad.....🙊😂
Though it's getting dark so early now, I'm still trying to squeeze in a short evening walk after dinner whenever possible. I can't always make it happen, but I do my best because that brief 15 minutes offers so many benefits: .
➡ It's totally relaxing, and a great way to destress after a busy day. .
➡ It gives me some much-needed outdoor time. .
➡ Going for a walk after a meal has a significant impact on the body's ability to regulate blood sugar levels, not just immediately after the meal, but for the following twenty four hours. A post-meal walk also stimulates metabolism. So, it's an enjoyable, fifteen minute activity that reduces my risk for diabetes and helps with weight control. Uhm, no brainer, right? 😃 .
➡ The evening's fading light adds another benefit - it helps keep circadian rhythms in check. When your body's clock is functioning properly, it not only helps you sleep better, it also positively impacts many of the body's systems involving hunger, mental alertness, mood, stress, heart function, and immunity.
Even as winter approaches, I do my best to stick with this habit. If I get wimpy about the cold, I suck it up, bundle up, and remind myself of the hardy Scandinavian mindset about cold weather: "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing." .
How do you motivate to keep moving, espeically during the darker, cooler months?

You wanted to know: ways to incorporate core strength training into your workouts! Really there are so many ways!! One of my favorite ways to really incorporate core into workouts is planks.
Plank variations and I have a ❤️😡relationship. I ❤️ them because they:
•work the entire body and get that heart pumping.
•you can get super creative with them and fit them into any workout - whatever muscle groups you are focusing on.
•promote mind muscle connection as you focus on form.
•great for strength if and building a solid core by challenging your stability.
•last tip- while you do any kind of strength training, really focus on your posture and engage your core through movements. By focusing on that alone you will see huge change.
I only 😡 them while I'm doing them. 😂 these are just a few of the billion ways you can use planks.(full video on my Facebook page-link in bio) #planks#burpees#getcreative#justmove

I got this poem for my birthday .. the timing couldn't be much better. .
Blessed be the mind that dreamed the day
The blueprint of your life
Would begin to glow on earth,
Illuminating all the faces and voices
That would arrive to invite
Your soul to growth.
Praised be your father and mother,
Who loved you before you were,
And trusted to call you here
With no idea who you would be.
Blessed be those who have loved you
Into becoming who you were meant to be,
Blessed be those who have crossed your life
With dark gifts of hurt and loss
That have helped to school your mind
In the art of disappointment.
When desolation surrounded you,
Blessed be those who looked for you
And found you, their kind hands
Urgent to open a blue window
In the gray wall formed around you.
Blessed be the gifts you never notice,
Your health, eyes to behold the world,
Thoughts to countenance the unknown,
Memory to harvest vanished days,
Your heart to feel the world's waves,
Your breath to breathe the nourishment
Of distance made intimate by earth.
On this echoing-day of your birth,
May you open the gift of solitude
In order to receive your soul;
Enter the generosity of silence
To hear your hidden heart;
Know the serenity of stillness
To be enfolded anew
By the miracle of your being.
By John O'Donohue
Home workout today. I got inspired to kind of re-do the home gym after trying a “real” gym, a spin class, a group fitness class and a few yoga classes. Although there were things I loved about all those different things, the bottom line is that motivation and desire have to come from within YOU and not so much from external sources. Although the external or “new and fresh” can give you renewed motivation, it seems temporary and eventually the “new” gym or program will be old hat and you’ll feel bored again. I’m glad I’m going through this process and I feel I’m coming over a plateau and discovering my intrinsic motivations again. I think I may keep the hot yoga on a casual basis but bottom line is - if I can’t get it together to workout at home, joining a program or gym probably won’t fix that for me. This is just ME and my journey. I’m not saying it will be the same for everyone. #running#runday#treadmill#treadmillworkout#homeworkout#fitnessjourney#fitness#fit#fitfam#sweat#getsweaty#justmove#lift#lifting
So excited! My new @injinji socks arrived! No more #longrun blisters. I've also noticed after wearing them a couple of times, they really align your toes. If you're anything like me, and lord do we know #runnersfeet sometimes aren't pretty, you may have toes that aren't perfectly splayed. These socks work on spreading your toes & aligning them how they are suppose to be for optimal utilization. Now spreading cramped toes may not feel super comfy at first, but give it a try, I promise it gets better each wear! & healthy feet are happy feet!
