Halloween 2019

I have been a little quiet on the blog this week. Still learning to juggle my fitness schedule, the new kid classes, my volunteer work, house, family, choreography and oh yeah, sleep. The problem is I am so blessed with so many things I want to do, it is hard to focus and narrow down what is important in that moment. So I have slowed down to speed up. A saying my husband and I tell our kids a lot.

I started blogging to be able to write and share and inspire others. I am so grateful for all the positive feed back. Looking over my posts, while I happy with my content, it is lacking in the writing dept. No worries, fun coffee memes, inspiration, move of the day, food will stay but more posts about me and my life will be added as well, starting with today’s Halloween recap. So let’s dig in.

It has been a super fun week of Halloween inspired fitness classes, beginning with my Special Needs Zumba class Monday. They came in costume, we did some fun Halloween favorites in class like I’m Your Boogie Man and Thriller. The Thriller train did not end there. It pulled into Zumba Tues, Zumba Gold Wed, Special Halloween Zumba class Wed night and made its last drop off at Cardio Drumming Thur morning. There have many costumes this week, Black and Orange, I wore my Awesome Grandma shirt. Been Wonder Woman. Wrapped up with TuTus and tiaras at Barre Fit. By Halloween I was costumed out and passed out candy in pajamas. Overall a super fun week full of laughs and lots of smiles.

A Halloween post would not be complete without a picture of my granddaughter on her second Halloween being her adorable self out tricking or treating for the 1st time. Seriously the cutest flamingo I have ever seen.

I hope you had an amazing week and made some memories with family and friends.

Please share how your week went.

MOD-Mountain Climber To Toe Taps

Happy Monday! This week out Move Of the Day will focus on different ways to use a plyo box. You can always use a step, bench, whatever you have handy. You can adjust the intensity of this move for your fitness level and goals

MoD-Plank/Ankle Reach/Mountain Climber

Move of the Day is a plank to ankle reach to mountain climber. Need a modification? Use a chair to hold the plank (with hands on chair) reach for your calf, then hold one foot off floor, then the other. Video on Instagram

M.O.D.-Slam ball to Split Pushup

Happy Tuesday! Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. Time to get back to working on those goals. #moveoftheday is a way to level up your push-ups. Slam ball to split push-up. To modify, squat with ball then step back into a plank.

Lunge With Bicep Curl To Plank Jack

Today Move Of The Day: Lunge with a Bicep Curl to a Plank Jack. To modify you can start with no weight and then start with a plank, then add taps to the side to build up to the jack. Need to make it harder, up your weight, add extra jacks in the plank.

Let Go Of Self Doubt

Today’s #motivationmonday quote maybe alittle late but I think we all can relate to this in some small (or large) way. Maybe you are going after a new goal or have hit a plateau in a current goal. Maybe there is a goal you have been meaning to start working towards. What if we let go of self-doubt and self-judgement? What if we could express gratitude for the desire to get started and keep going? How much more can we enjoy the journey and see the lessons we are learning along the way if we set down the shadow of self-doubt?
