This week was another successful week of working out and staying healthy. I kicked my butt (literally!) 4x and completed my goal. This past month of using the Daily Workout Apps was fun, yet it still pushed me. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to try working out at home to look these apps up. It doesn’t let you cut anything short and is amazing accountability. I know as someone who still struggles with keeping active, it kept me responsible and moving, even when I was ready to give up.
This month has been rewarding and I proud of the workouts I did and the time well spent. Although, I will say I’m happy to move on and try something totally new this month!
For the month of August, I’ve decided to try out yoga for the very first time. I’m very excited to spend the next four weeks introducing myself to yoga. I’ve watched as yoga has become outstandingly popular and totally hip and exquisitely challenging, yet never ventured into trying it. As time has gone on, I’ve begun to question that. When it comes to my body, I want three things.
1. To be healthy.
2. To be strong.
3. To be flexible.
That’s the dream! And yet, as I’ve done my research, it seems that yoga can help me achieve all three. So, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and see what all the fuss is about.
For the coming month, I have blogs, apps, and Pinterest boards to help me experience and experiment with practicing yoga. But this week, I’m gong to pull out an app I’ve been really excited to try out. I’ve heard great reports and conversations about it, and recently I found out it has a section dedicated to yoga! It’s called *Sworkit, and it’s similar to the Daily Workout Apps, but it seems a bit more refined. It has more options, a cleaner interface, more time choices, longer workouts, and so many options, it’s crazy.
All these photos are screen shots taken from my phone, and as you can see above, even under the yoga section, I have a bunch of choices of what I want to accomplish. I can see myself wanting to try each of these, and maybe exploring this app for more than one week. We’ll have to see how it all goes. On that note, I can also see myself wanting to extend my month with yoga through September, at the least. I know yoga takes time, practice, patience. Your body learns and grows and becomes stronger every session and every day. I’m open to giving yoga lots of time, and lots of effort.
For this week I am going to aim for two 10 minute workouts and two 5 minute workouts. That way I have a chance to try out every option, but also work my body a fair amount. I’m really looking forward to reporting back next week with the first response on how it went.
