#Just5Minutes – Zengo Cycle Class for my 3rd Workout of the Day 

Barre3 & Yoga classes this AM, and then Power Hour at Zengo Cycle with Shannon Ryan = how to procrastinate when you have so much to do, are beyond behind with work, and can’t see straight (literally and figuratively).  Working out 3x in one day was the lesser of two evils and less painful to wrap my head around.  Bonus! I picked up this shirt for the silent auction at Wellapalooza 2017 Integrative Wellness Retreat!

#Just5Minutes – Holy Buti Yoga! 

Okay, so that may be one of my favorite workouts ever. And my favorite sports bra/posture wear for my hypermobile shoulders by AlignMed.   My full workout tonight before my middle son woke up sick with the croup that his older brother gave him: – 30mins spinning/indoor cycling at home  – 30-45mins strength training and PT exercises  – 40 mins Buti Yoga workout on YouTube 

#Just5Minutes – 30 mins on the Indoor Spinning Bike

Because even when planning two conferences and having a boatload of work to do, you need to just get it done – even if it’s 11:55pm at night. My cut off for getting a workout in, even for 5-10 minutes, is 11:59am. Crazy, but it’s another trick or rule I have in my head to keep me going, even if I really don’t want to – as long as I start working out or moving by 11:59pm, the workout counts for that day. If I haven’t started by 12:00am, then then the workout counts towards the next day, so I should just go to bed.  It doesn’t always work, but it did last night – 30 mins on the indoor spinning bike done! Even though I really didn’t want to…..

My #Just5Minutes Parting Gift

While walking on the treadmill last night, I felt the top of my hand get tighter and tighter. I also felt a hot stinging-like pain. I finally stopped walking (I wasn’t walking super fast either), tried to open and close my hand, but it hurt a lot more than I was expecting. I hadn’t actually looked at my hand until that moment, and I suddenly realized why it hurt more than usual – I had a small vein rupture, sometimes referred to as a hematoma. It was more swollen than other small ruptures I’ve had before. I iced it, and the pain slowly subsided, but I can’t say it looked much better afterward.   For the record, my “just 5 minutes” was way more than just 5 minutes, despite my annoying issue. My at home workout today: – 30 mins on indoor spinning bike – 30 mins walk on treadmill (3.0-3.3mph) – 25 mins PIYO Buns workout – 30 mins PT/Strength exercises Pics of my hand that will take forever to heal now: Reference for …

#Just5Minutes – Zengo with My Husband 

I’m glad that I went at 5pm to Shannon’s class at Zengo Cycle, because I probably wouldn’t have worked out otherwise. I was tired and have more than enough studying to do, not to mention work to get done. However, we had a sitter for the kids, so my husband dragged me because he knew that I wanted to go. Afterwards, we were able to grab something to eat as well. Thank goodness for Chromolyn Sodium – my stomach is much happier now.  And I tried the new Kyani Nitro Extreme powder – impressed.

#Just5Minutes – When You Miss Your Zengo Cycling Class 

I had to cancel two classes today earlier today, and then I didn’t make it in time to my Zengo Cycling class. What went from a rockstar workout day, took a serious nose dive, but was saved by my oldest. He saw me in my yoga/workout room on the spinning bike — after I came home early from the cyling class I had just missed. I wasn’t happy to say the least, but made myself get on the spinning bike and start peddling my legs. My oldest opened the door to the workout room and when I asked him what he was doing, he responded “You’re in a workout class — see you later!”  He then smiled, shut the door, and walked away. And made sure his little sister didn’t interrupt me.  Now that’s love.
