Afternoon wellness friends…

Since my cold has subsided, I’m back to the 90 day challenge. I’m also starting Saturday wellness rituals. What’s that? Glad you asked. 

Saturday wellness rituals include starting the day with thanks….

The list goes on… 

Give thanks

Guzzle several liters of water

At least once a month schedule a massage 

Sugar scrub for softer skin 

(3 parts sugar, 1 part Oil of Olay Pomegranate Dish soap, tablespoon essential oil, 2 tablespoons free lemon juice). 

Nap or book reading 

At home mani/pedi

Journaling thoughts…

Workout

Chillax

I spend plenty of time during the week caring for other people. Much of my life is spent giving. It’s nice to have a day that’s caring for my body…TLC. Are you taking time for you? Are you caring for your body? When was the last time you got a haircut, purchased a nice shirt, or rested. For those who take more care of themselves than others, when was the last time you put someone else first? Life is all about balance! 

Make wellness a way of life! 😘

R&R…

Hello fitness and wellness friends. I hope you’re still on your journey. I have been under the weather the past few weeks. Therefore,  working out has ceased to happen. I don’t recommend working out when you’re sick…let your body heal. 

This is my pre sickness face…I was exhausted. Should’ve tipped me off that a cold was coming… 



I could’ve slept for months… 

I also ceased eating food because it all tasted the same, bland.

So what do you do when life kicks you in the teeth and lays you on your face? You rest! You hydrate! You take vitamins. You relax!!! 

Saturday I slept 12 hours. Yes! 

Rest is just as important as working out. Give your body time to heal. Sometimes we push too hard, we neglect rest…we end up sick. 

I was surrounded by sick teammates and an overwhelming stressful program. Stress weakens the immune system. So it’s good to rest! 

Do you need some R&R? 

What activities do you do to replenish your mind, body, and soul? 

How are you taking time to just be and not do?  

What part of your workout routine involves rest? 

I hope to back in the fitness game soon! Keep up the good work. Cheering for you!!

Warm Regards,

Erin

90 Day Challenge

This is how I feel after working out. Before I work out I feel like a slug on a log…zzz….I just want a nap. After a long day in the office I don’t want to workout…yet I always feel better after I do. 

My friend Brian and I started a 90 day challenge. I type this as my body is throbbing! He started P90X. I started Power 90 which is in the P90 series. I’d love to tell you committing to this will be easy. It isn’t. I have a few week night obligations that take up time. 

Where does working out fit in? 

You make time! 

You make time because your health is important. 

You make time because if you do nothing, nothing changes. 

You make time so you feel better (endorphins baby…endorphins). 

You make time because you will look better, your skin glow, your body function better!!! 

You make time because you love yourself! 

If you don’t take care of yourself, who will? There’s no magic pill to melt away the Christmas pounds or tone up the flabby arms. It requires some effort. 

I’ve also given up dessert. I miss dessert. At least for now it’s on the shelf. 

Lastly…

I hope you’re taking care of yourself and enjoying life! Make each day count. You’re worth taking care of…so make time to care for your mind, body, spirit, and soul. 

Xo,

Erin
