What have you done to improve your health today?
I squeezed in a great hotel gym workout! I am disappointed to report I left my knee sleeves at home, which means I couldn’t go on a pre-wedding 5K run with my friends. However, I COULD make use of the hotel gym!
I did 30-minutes of high-resistance work on the elliptical, and then I made use of the free weights to create my own mini No More Trouble Zones workout. I also left the DVD at home (I packed in a frantic 2 minutes and left LOTS of important things in Charlotte…).
I started out with the SURRENDER move. This move is killer! You keep your arms above your head (I used two 5-pound free weights), and slowly lower yourself down into a kneeling position.
And then you stand back up, holding your arms above your head the entire time. Lots of fun. 🙂 I did 20.
I also did side lunges with anterior raises, 35 bicep curls, and regular anterior raises with the same 5-pound weights. I rounded it all out with 60 bicycle crunches and called it a morning. It was a great workout session!
Hotel breakfast was decent, too!
Scrambled eggs and an English muffin with jam:
Plus, lots and lots of coffee. I have a big deal of bridesmaid activities to do!
On that note… I’m OFF! I hope you have a wonderful day; see ya for lunch!
What have you done or are planning to do to improve your health today?
Hehe, I love those lunge things!
Hmmm…I’m having a rest day from exercise – I figure that’s improving my health as I hardly ever have them 🙂
