Today’s Fitness:

My 20 minutes on the rebounder this morning and a very short walk outside, that’s it. I wanted to do more at night but didn’t get to it. Does typing count as exercise?

How I felt
Great most of the day. A little emotional at times, but I think that was environment and lack of aerobic exercise as much as anything else. I had way too much energy at night as I stayed up way too late. 😦

Inspiration / Power Thought/Affirmation/Quote
I accept my experiences and choose to constantly learn and grow.

Today’s Fitness:

20 minutes on rebounder first thing in the morning. Hour-long yoga class at Simple Pleasures in La Crescent.
How I felt:
Even though I feel like I slept well last night (falling asleep close to 11 p.m.) I was still sleepy this morning. But I did wake up on my own before the alarm went off so that is a very good sign. I still felt kind of tired even after a shower, but then felt great after my pinapple shake and got going in the morning quite well!
Affirmation/Power Thought:
I am aware of my feelings and choose to be present to them!
