Fifth Week of #WakeUpWinter

WinterBlueSky

This week’s focus:

  • Sweat hard 4-6 days/week: This means more than just an easy walk but a full-blown workout. Could be 20 minutes, could be an hour or more. This is in addition to moving as much as possible during the day and stretching daily. Why? The endorphin rush from vigorous exercise helps combat Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D) and feelings of lethargy.

So, what did my workout schedule look like for the week? Right now, I’m immersing myself in my first ever month of Bikram so you’ll see that’s a big part of my sweat schedule right now. My first few classes were pretty rough, but I’m definitely learning to appreciate more aspects of it… and even, dare I say, look forward to it?
