You had me at Soulcycle- My favorite Cardio

Hello Ladies,

I confess, I fell off the workout wagon again ! It’s so bizarre, because I am always off  falling off one wagon or another. If I am focused on my yoga practice, then I cannot workout or do any cardio. It’s like I am cheating  on one if I am doing the other.. WTH?  I mean, my yoga practice is not a form of working out for me, so what is the problem? Anyone else get stuck in this kind of back and forth, or is it just me?  Why can’t I practice my yoga daily and hit the gym or studio also???

Anyway,  outside of my yoga, I am either weight training  at a gym or getting my cardio on at a studio like Soul Cycle or Orange Theory .  Soul Cycle by far is my absolute favorite!!  When they turn the lights off and the music up,  I zone all the way out and go all the way in. It’s like a form of meditation for me, and I’m obsessed ! 60 to 90 mins later, I’ve burn no less that 8oo calories and I’m drenched in sweat.. SOOO good ! Yea, the classes are pricey, but whatever. If the instructor is on the job, with a greater intention for her riders and the playlist is on point, it’s gonna be an amazing ride ! Any soul riders relating here ?

 

until next time

Fitness Goals

Hi Ladies,

I fell off the workout wagon three months ago, there I admit it LOL ! Seriously tho, I find when my life starts to get outta balance all of my lifestyle routines suffer. I stop working out, I don’t get enough sleep and I start eating really bad.  Not to mention, having to go to a job I really didn’t enjoy. Welp, I don’t work at that job anymore and I’m BACK !

My favorite forms of working out are; weight training and running ( 5k or 10k’s only and it has to be in a tutu) I sometimes do bootcamp style workouts or orange theory. I really want to get into cross fit. I tried it once and was almost through it, when the last round of burpee’s  got me. I had a full on melt down when I couldn’t complete the last set and began hysterically crying. I never went back, LOL. I think I’ll be ok this time, I’m going back ! Bottom line is, I always want my body to be strong. So, not working out really isn’t an option.

Oh, and I have gained some weight during this  un-scheduled break.. So, who wants to join me back on the workout wagon ?  Who has a few pounds to shed and wants an accountability partner?  Who’s with me ?

we got this, Andrinique
