I found that I’m a much happier person when I workout more consistently. Yoga has been helping me with my mobility, which makes my other workouts much more productive.
Yoga was particularly difficult for me on Monday night. She was doing a lot of hip openers that just hurt too much. I opted for a LOT of child’s pose this class! But it was great to see my yoga buddies. I always miss them on Wednesday nights.
Warmup: Foam Roll
Conditioning: 1 mile on the elliptical, keeping my heart rate under 150. (Much harder than it sounds for me!)
- Resistance band lateral squats
- 5 single leg RDLs (each side)
Yoga was nice and restorative on Wednesday. When we do standing balancing positions, she normally does them as separate exercises, but this time she did a flow. It was very different and very difficult. I like that even with a more restorative class, she throws in a few new challenges!

- 10 KB Goblet Squats (20lbs)
Friday night was just a relaxing night at home.
Saturday – Sunday
On Saturday morning, we got up to drive to Baltimore. We were meeting Michael’s cousins at Horseshoe Casino. We stayed there for the weekend. We were practicing some new Blackjack strategies and ended up making about $150. Not too shabby!
Bonus Day: Monday
On Monday, we headed back from the casino. We stopped to see Michael’s Aunt Sally on the way home. It’s always good to see her. We got to meeting his cousin’s new baby as well!
How was your week? Did you do anything fun for Labor Day?
