Most of us have a ‘workout plan’ and plans are great because they have us stick to a routine. I usually recommend that people plan a TIME each day to workout so that time is dedicated. With that time, it’s nice to also leave room open for your body to tell you what it feels like doing. Trust me, as much as I am a happy-go-lucky gal 90% of the time I have my moments and have to dial it back a notch to reboot and figure out what the heck I want to do!

 

If you feel like GOING AFTER IT and trying something new, do it!

My Monday night Faith & Fitness class has progressed week to week so we decided to give the PiYo Flip a shot – these ladies were up for it and I’m so proud of them!

 

If you want to take a rest day and feel super sore or tired, it’s a sign. You can even take that time to cook and food-prep!

Giving the body a break is needed sometimes! The time change the week before this last weekend wasn’t much help, so getting acclimated to it can take time.

 

 

If you’re itching to go outside and workout outside, head out in the sunshine!

Spring has sprung! This past weekend hubby and I wanted to workout but also catch up, so we decided to go for a walk and play at the playground instead – why not??

 

If your feet haven’t hit the pavement in some time and want to run, let it be!

I am in the mode of enjoying running when I WANT to run versus being on a training schedule. If the weather is nice outside and my legs are itching for it, I go out for a run. I don’t decide how far, I let my body determine that – keeping in mind I have to turn around at some point and come home.

 

 

How do you listen to your body and make adjustments to your workouts weekly?

What is a workout you’ve done based solely around ‘feel’?

    I have been so out of a routine for the past few months. Part of it is because I’ve been working on a new venture but that should never be an excuse. I just need to do as you suggest and I always preached…put a time to exercise on my calendar and then no excuse!!! Thanks for sharing via #TBB #LinkLove 🙂

    Since getting “the ladies” I had to take the work out a little slower/less bouncy but I have to say, I have officially become quite fond of walking on the treadmill at an incline! When I was younger, I used to do this except I would hold on to the rail for DEAR LIFE – but no longer, cause my as is BAD ASS… Ha.

    Love the flexibility you have in your routine. Sometimes you need to shake things up and just do what makes you happy!
