#Just5Minutes – Week 4 of making the decision to take my life and body back is 1/2 way over

The sunrise on the way to barre class this morning – beautiful. It makes getting up super early just a bit easier.  – I’ve worked out 1-2x a day, every day. – I’m focusing on doing yoga 2x a week – not just when teaching it. My next goal is to do it daily for a 30-day challenge. – I’m still going to PT an average of 1x a week – I’ve made sure that I’m walking as much as I have been – especially when taking the kids to school or picking them up. – I’ve gone to bed at a reasonable time each night, but I’m still working on getting enough sleep and rest. Pacing has never been my strength. – I’m making sure that I’m taking my supplements each day, and working on improving my nutrition even more (although I’m super hungry all of the time, which isn’t usual for me). – I’ve been trying to make sure I make time for acupuncture, massage and other alternative therapies that I know help, …

#Just5Minutes – Round 2: Kickboxing 

The ultimate form of procrastination – Round 2 workout, just because kickboxing is one of my all-time favorite workouts, and even after HIIT Tabata Circuit at Sculpt Studio at 6am this morning. Not a fan of all things zebra, but I will wear zebra-striped warps under my boxing gloves – this is my shout-out to my EDS Wellness community.  And I’m so going to win the BCC (“Buff Body Contest”) against my husband.

#Just5Minutes – For the record, my favorite exercise ever is the deadlift. 

HIIT Tabata Circuit Sculpt Studio & week 4 of the Buff Body Contest (BCC) with my husband.  While cleaning the boys’ room last night, my oldest said to my husband, “Mommy is clearly winning.”  Not sure what I’m winning, but taking my life and body back to my normal is priceless.  And I get to snuggle my oldest baby each morning after I get back from working out and before he goes to school. Total bonus.  #Just5Minutes

#Just5Minutes – I will win the BBC (Buff Body Contest) against my husband

Considering he hasn’t done anything the last two days and said that he doesn’t care about winning, he’s not such a fun competitor.  My workouts for today: 6am – HIIT Circuit Megaformer Class on crack.  2pm – Slow walk with a friend, but still a walk and I hit over 10,000 steps.  5:00pm – Walk to pick up the kids from school 7:30pm – TRX with Kazue  I was going to win.

#Just5Minutes – 30mins cycling/spinning at home & 30 push-ups 

My nephew decided that he was going to start to 30 push-ups each day because someone commented on his “spaghetti arms.” I told my sister that I would join him because I couldn’t do 30 push-ups in a row in my feet either. They didn’t believe it. But nope, I have my own #EDSSpiral that I’m working out of. So, tonight I did 30 total push-ups – 15 on my feet and 15 on my knees. That was 5 more on my feet than the last time.  Post originally posted on Instagram –  https://instagram.com/p/BSDbWdgDC6v/

#Just5Minutes – Lots of people workout at 6am – who knew? 

And what else can you do when you sleep like this? I met my friend at Zengo Cycle and I’m pretty sure she left shocked – per usual. However, class this morning reminded me of why I started going to Zengo in the first place – just about 5 years ago? ‘CLIMBING OUT OF THE EDS SPIRAL – MY ZENGO STORY’ http://strengthflexibilityhealtheds.com/2015/05/13/climbing-out-of-the-eds-spiral-my-zengo-story/ #Just5Minutes #LiveEDSStrong #InvisibleStrength #EhlersDanlos #Hypermobility
