Do 1 of the following:
- Go outside for an easy run or a long walk.
- Do legs up the wall for 10 minutes.
- Try a neck and shoulder self-massage. If you’re booed up, give each other a foot and shoulder massage. It’s a wonderful way to stay connected.
- Make your own lip scrub. Keep that pout perfect.
- Take a yoga class or do this 15 minute energizing flow routine.
If you’re behind on the workouts, use this weekend to get those done!
How was it? What were your challenges? Do you eat when you’re bored, stressed? Were the workouts miserable, or just right? Do you get hungry at a certain time? Body feel good? Drinking enough water? What surprised you?
I’ll go first. 1) I don’t eat badly; I eat for no reason. I’ve sat in bed spooning peanut butter out of the jar as if there was no tomorrow. I have avoided this during the challenge but I know I’m not cured. I’ve stocked up on lower calorie bites, like apples and boiled eggs, in case the feeling hits again. 2) I don’t immediately enjoy a workout. I’ll start on autopilot going through the motions. Then at the 10-12 minute mark, I’m like, “Who gonna stop me now!? I feel amazing. King Kong, ain’t got nothing on me!!!!”
It’s good to know yourself.
Go grocery shopping. Buy the right foods to keep you on track. As you saw on day 5, I loaded up on quinoa, oatmeal, and lentils. I also bought apples, tomatoes, greek yogurt, and eggs. These items are versatile and quick to prepare.
What was your recovery? What did you learn? Do you still love me?
