I Fumbled, Fell and Then

That’s what I did today in Barre today.  I was all excited at the beginning.  I did a few minutes of meditating high intensity today and then I pushed play.

High intensity, as I’m in week 7, 40 minutes. I was sweating giving what I thought was more than 💯, kicking this cardio workout then it happened.  I noticed my leg was swinging so high and my balance was off. Who doesn’t know if their balance is off, Me. One of my canines decide to place kibbles on my workout mat and I stumbled on a few, did a quick clean-up and back to the workout.  I fumbled as I my skin was glistening and dropping sweat on the mat, I broke my fall with grace and decided I needed to modify and that’s what I did. Did I decrease my 💯, NOPE, just my level and completed the workout.  Barre Blend is a challenge.

Another week of great barre workouts, how did I do ? Well I completed with again greater balance, improved elongation in legs in the workout and have learned more ballet terms (don’t test me on them though).  My flexibility has improved and I notice in my sitting whether at home, in transportation or at  work my posture is higher and more aligned. No change in the weights, I continue to use 2 lb.

I have two weeks remaining, as of today I’m certain if I will do another round of Barre Blend, but for now I’m in love with my current barre workout. I

If you’ve never tried a barre workout, well you’re missing out. However for now whatever workout you’re doing give it your 100 and keep up the good work.

Is it Barre or Boxing

I’m currently doing two workouts and they are so different and each has worked my body differently with sweating, huffing, puffing, balance and challenged me to new levels.

Barre Blend- my second round of this workout, it first stoked me because my expectations were so wrong and now it challenges me.  What is barre- well it is a combination of Pilates, ballet, yoga, muscle strengthening, kickboxing, abs, dance and lots of fun. The equipment well it’s your decision, however as I do lift heavy this workout or these workouts says NO. No heavy weights I begin with 5, then 3 and am steady with 2 lb. weights. I love Barre Blend (streamed on BOD)

Boxing well yeah that’s 10 Rounds on BOD. Three days of boxing 10 rounds- 7 rounds include boxing, 2 rounds are agility which is cardio with strengthening moves using loops sometimes and always a towel and 1 round of ab workout.  I love 10 Rounds. Which was to be 2 week with barre although it is a 6 week program.  Today I started week 3.

I can’t decide which to concentrate the most on so for now I’m giving each my  💯 And before my muscle become complete immobile from either workout I hope I’ll decide which one to continue with until then I’m a barre boxing gal,
