My body has been going through some serious changes lately! Without going into much detail, I will just say that my body has been extra bloated. I can easily fluctuate up or down 5 pounds and/or one dress size in a day! It’s been wild, and just another thing to love about getting older. HEHE.
Thank God for sweatpants, is all I’m saying.
My exercise cravings have changed a bit, too. Here’s what I’ve been loving recently:
- Higher weight, less reps. After a lengthy break from the big weights, I’ve finally felt the urge to throw them up again!
- My cardio sessions (walks and bike rides) have been longer than normal, but less intense. When I do take it up to max effort, I maintain it for no longer than 15 seconds per interval.
- Yoga! I’ve been hitting the mat 3 times a week at least. In addition to Kris’s Wednesday class, I like to tack on a 10-minute session of yoga after a walk or bike ride.
You may notice these influences in my classes, like this one! All you need is set of weights, and a blanket or block for your knees.
