After this week I’ve needed to run, scream, cry, sing at the top of my lungs, and dance all over my living room.
Tonight I recognized that I may have been pushing myself on my 8 mile run- which I followed up by doing a 3.5 mile run last night. I want to run, but I am also aware that my body is asking me (so kindly) to slow down. Remember that time you had lupus? Yes. Body.
So today after I got home from work I decided to take it down a notch and use FitStar, a workout app that claims-
You can do this anywhere– at home! Work! Vacation!
And while my first thought is always- where exactly are their users working? I have to admit it’s a great app. FitStar (click me to see!) provides you with a basic to complex workout regimen that is designed to target different parts of your body (ie: core and arms day, legs and back day). It explains each individual exercise and times you while giving instructions and advice. It then allows you to be totally 100% honest and rate each exercise (did you really do that plank for the full 30 seconds?) My personal fav is while you’re doing a wall push up the “trainer” says, “smile, don’t worry, you aren’t being searched.” I haven’t purchased the full app, but I do use the basic version which is free. It’s a good addition to add on the days of the week that I’m looking to slow my roll.
So tonight I put on some workout gear, you have to dress the part to act the part, John’s new Beats that I got him for his birthday (tip- buy your boyfriend presents that you can use), and started the app. Forty minutes later and a dance party mixed in and I’m actually satisfied.
I started this post by saying that after this week I’ve needed to run, scream, cry, sing at the top of my lungs, and dance all over my living room.
The past two days I have run.
Three nights ago I screamed.
Every day I have cried.
Today I sang at the top of my lungs.
And just now I danced all over my living room.
