Wahoo! Nia!

Posted by terrepruitt on June 29, 2011

Yeah, I get excited when I have a Nia class.  I love to teach Nia.  I love to get up in front of a class and show them anyone can move and have fun.  So with that in mind, the fact that I have a Nia Class this morning, I will be back to let you know about the Ten Minute Workout.

With yesterday’s post assisting you with ideas on how to do the ten exercises without the exercise ball, the resistance band, and the BOSU, maybe you’ll join me?  Why not try it for ten days?  It’s ten minutes.  Ten exercises, ten times, in ten minutes, for ten days.  Now the ten minutes is the time frame, so if you can do more than ten exercises go for it.  Well, what do you say?  Got ten minutes?

Ok, DONE!  And it was pretty funny.  I had been out today in my MBTs and I decided to practice the Nia routine Sexi in my MBTs.  So after that, I decided to do the ten minute workout in my MBTs.  Ha.  Fun-ny!

I normally just do the workout in bare feet.  So shoes — MBTs in particular — provided different sensations.

You may recall I bought the MBTs because (I’ve always wanted them but couldn’t bring myself to spend that on shoes) I thought they would help me re-learn how to walk properly.  Rolling through my entire foot.  I was thinking that I could do longer lunges in my MBTs because I could be on the ball of my foot but really rolled to the ball of the shoe.  Well, that went as planned.  I did the lunges as I originally thought when I put them in the workout.

MBTs on the BOSU . . . . different.  It definitely engages even MORE muscles.  I had thought of that too when I thought to do the workout with them on.  What I didn’t think about was how I would notice the shoes when doing the V sit up.

Anyway . . . I’m done.  Just wanted to let you know.  I think I should also confess that I almost skipped it today because I had a tentative phone appointment.  But I decided that I could do it even after that.  But it turned out that feel through so I just did it.  I mean, c’mon, it really IS only ten minutes.

    I’m baaaaaaack, well my 10 minute work outs have been spotty, and I have not been reporting in. Today I walked and did a 10 minute work out. For me, I know there is always time to do the little bit of exercise that I strive to do everyday, sometimes it is more the motivation that I struggle with! I love this series of post Terre, and you are almost to the 30 days of 10 minute work out posts, wahoo!!

    • It is so easy to stop or lose consistancy when there are just a few days missed. But it can also be easy to pick back up because it IS only ten minutes. You got it perfect that you are adding it to something you do.

      Motivation. Yeah. Does having a place to check in everyday help you will the motivation? Should we keep this up? Maybe all the way through the summer? If I did that my check-ins would really just have to be something like, “Here is today’s placeholder.” and then “I’m done.” Writing everyday is very time consuming. 🙂 But it would be worth it if it helped motivate. We can talk and you can tell me what you think.

      Thank you so much for being here.

    • No. You can think about it while you are on vacation and then START (not maybe) when you get back. Well, what did you expect me to say?

      You wanted motivation. You wanted inspiration. I really thought 10 minutes was motivating and inspiring. 🙂
