Morning Workout

Posted by terrepruitt on June 14, 2011

I am actually going to get to bed earlier tonight than I have been getting to bed.  The plan is to get up a little earlier and do my Ten Minute Workout.  I want to actually have it done before noon.  Since I don’t have a Nia class on Tuesday I can get my ten (or twenty) ten in ten done in the morning.  Not necessarily early morning just morning as in before noon.  What about you?

Also, how are you doing with the ten?  Are you getting through ten repetitions of all ten exercises?

Well, I shall return to actually check-in with my “I’m done!”

Okey-dokey.  I did my Ten Minute Workout.  I am averaging at least twice through, but, as I’ve said before I am convinced it is because my lunges aren’t that long, BUT . . . . . they ARE lunges.  Yay!  I am getting on the ball of my right foot (while my left leg is forward) AND pushing off on it when the right leg is forward. I am working on distributing the weight through the entire width of my foot (ball of foot) and all five toes, because I sense that I am still putting the majority of the weight on the actually “ball” of my foot (metatarsal head).

So are you ready to give the ten a try?  Remember we all have different goals so do what YOU can, not what I am saying I am doing.  Let me know how it is going for you.

  1. I went to bed early last night. 10:30! That is practically unheard of! I don’t know if I mentioned I have a monster sinus infection. I’m at the point of having to get more antibiotics. The steroids, decongestant, and antibiotics have not helped with the infection, but have made me feel – blah!

    I can’t wait to feel better.

    • Oh you poor thing. I couldn’t handle a sinus infection. I’ve had sinus “discomfort” before and I couldn’t handle that. I hope you feel better.

      I didn’t get to bed earlier than normal. I need to change my normal to be by midnight. I think 2:00 am is just too late!

      Thank you for stopping by.

    Ok, I did my 10 minute work out this morning after my walk and ended up getting out the door before I had time to check in. So my husband actually was waiting around before leaving for work this morning and said “hey, were are those weights? I have 10 minutes” Yay! It is so convenient to start working out in small doses! Thanks Terre, I will be adding the tricep kick backs and hopefully get more coordinated! See why I don’t dance?!?!?!?!

    • YAY hubby! That is so awesome. It is easy to do small doses. And depending upon individual goals it can be tailored to fit.

      No, I don’t see why you don’t dance. What you were doing today was not the result of “lack of coordination” its the result of super elastic ligaments. The last time you were at my Nia class (remember when Stacy was here?) we were both FLOORED at how you just let your body move to the music and dance. I can see why you don’t compete in dance or do ballet. Competitions and ballet require precision and certain steps and that is not everyone’s cup of tea. But allowing the body to be moved by music is something everyone would benefit from. That is why Nia is so great, Hon, because it just requires you to move. Picking up the specific moves along the way is a result.

      With Nia you don’t have to think as much as with weights. I would suggest you do it in front of a mirror or have hubby spot you so that someone can guide you on how to keep your bones from twisting. Then once you do it a few times without all the extra movement 🙂 you will have a sense of how to do it and be able to without a mirror/hubby. Because I NEED you to be safe. And your body has a lot of extra movement to it and I don’t want you to twist too much with a weight in your hand. MUAH!

      Thank you soooooooooooo much for joining in!
