Wednesday I have Nia

Posted by terrepruitt on June 15, 2011

Ok, so it is Wednesday and as you might notice, it is 1:00 am and I am not in bed yet.  This means I have a few more things to do before I get to bed, which means I will not be up at 6:00 am doing my Ten Minute Workout, drinking my coffee, reviewing my Nia Routine, deciding on a Nia focus, and popping out the door in time to be at the studio 15 minutes early for my Nia class.  In fact, around here, when the weather is nice traffic is worse, at least lately because our weather in the San Francisco Bay Area has been so wet and rainy, I think when it is sunny people think they have to be out.  If it stays like this, then people will settle down and it won’t be so bad . . . . I hope, but on Wednesday, it is ALWAYS worse than Mondays and Fridays.  Go figure.  (I have my theories.)  On Wednesdays I have to leave a few minutes before I do on Mondays.

Since I am not a morning person that means, I will do my Ten Ten in Ten after my class.  But YOU can do it anytime.  And the beauty of it is . . . . you can share . . . .

So . . . . tell me . . . . how is it going?  What are you doing with it?  What questions do you have?  One of my readers I am lucky enough to actually see in person so I was able to answer some of her questions, what about you?  What do you want to know about this workout?

Ok, after 3:00, but I did it.  This workout is really meant to be something that easily fits in your day.  If completing it is a challenge then it seems like ten minutes is a good start to a workout.  If it is not challenging and you want more than you can add reps, sets, or weight.  Or it could be that you are adding it to something else you are doing.

It really is something that can work for anyone if they want.  If the way it is presented is not “working” for you but you want to do it, let me know.  You can always send me an e-mail if you don’t want to comment.

Cheers!

    What? You’re not a morning person? But you’re still up at 1 a.m. — that’s morning!!! 🙂

    I’m proud of you for doing your Ten minute workout and getting so many others involved, too! I’m not one of them, but I’m enjoying your blogs about it!!! Hope you got some rest before your Nia class this morning!

    • No, not to me 1:00 am is NIGHT. I am going to bed at that time. I am not getting up at that time. I didn’t make it to bed until after 2:00 am. I think it would be good to go to bed the same day. 🙂 I did get rest — thanks! — and we had a great class today!

      I am very happy that you stop by to say you are here. That is so nice of you.

    Goodmorning! Ok I am done with my 10 minute workout, and I added the tricep kickback, so much easier after you showed me and the weights helped keep my crazy arm from twisting! Yay! Great to see you yesterday!!

    • I knew that the weights would help anchor your wrists. Because the way you were turning them appeared to be an unconscious movement, but with weights it would have to be conscious because it would take effort to do that. I knew you would do it fine. Whenever you have weights in your hands be aware of any twist or bend in the wrist. Most of the time you want to keep your wrists “solid” and not allow them to bend. If they are bending, it should be conscious. The same with twisting.

      Ooooo, thank you. This is such a great lesson/reminder on how even when we are using weights we need to be aware. I know I’ve been in the mode where I just pick up the weights and start moving them without really thinking about what I am doing. Often times when I tune back in I have been not keeping my wrists straight or some other thing I didn’t realize.

      Thank you for checking in. And it was great to see you yesterday. Do you know what I have in my backseat? Cruella’s outfit. I brought it to give to you and I forgot. And we were at my car TWICE!
