Monday at Midnight

Posted by terrepruitt on June 27, 2011

It is a little past midnight, I am putting up the placeholder.  I have not yet done my Ten Minute Workout for Monday, but I am hoping you will and you will comment on it.  I am rooting for you.  I know it is not always easy to find time.  I know how beneficial exercising can be.  What can happen is you squeeze in the ten minutes planning to do ten exercises ten times and you realize you have time for more.  You do more.  Then you realize how great you feel and you do a few more.

But you gotta just do it first.  Did ya?

I will be back to let you know I did.  First I have a Nia Class.

Wow!  I think it was the same time last night that I was posted that I had done it.  Here I am again, 7:00 pm.  But I did it.  I almost forgot.  I was just about to do it then I got a phone call.  Took me another hour to get to it, but I did.  And I am glad I did.

After my Nia class this morning another teacher and I went to a park to practice.  That was fun.  I didn’t have the correct shoes, but I think we still made some progress.  We figured out a few things.  NICE!  Will make it that much easier when I learn the routine.

So how was your Monday?

Saturday – When do you do the Ten Minute Workout

Posted by terrepruitt on June 18, 2011

Many people have plans on Saturdays.  So that is why the Ten Minute Workout is perfect.  Get up, get it done.  Sometimes you are just not sure about your day.  I am not sure what this day will hold so . . . . I am putting in a placeholder.  I will come back and check in with you.

Then later today the regularly scheduled post will be #7 of our ten, Triceps Extensions.  I do have a triceps extension post, but it is with a weighted bar and it is lying down.  In our ten minute workout we are using dumbbells and are kneeling.  (Kneeling is just easier because we are already on the floor because we just did our sit ups.)

Have a great Saturday.

Ok. To answer my own question, at 1:30, after I’ve had coffee and breakfast and waited for all that to digest. I had to make some adjustments/modifications, but I did my ten minute workout. I am confident that you will see some changes if you participate in this workout daily.
