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!
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.
Three days of Zengo in a row = Three days of intense workouts = Three days of sweating like crazy = Three days of feeling great. Exercise is our medicine, good nutrition is our fuel, and sleep & meditation is our restoration.

There’s something about starting your day, or the weekend, with a great workout — today it was Zengo Cycle. Done and done! Well, except for the doughnuts we promised the kids that we would bring home. Yeah… There went all those calories we burned, but at least my legs are getting stronger. Cycling regularly helps with fluid retention issues in my legs and above my knees — at least, that’s my hope. Below are pics of my knees after paddle boarding on vacation. The problem wasn’t paddleboarding. I am conditioned enough to handle paddle boarding, and it’s one of my favorite outdoor activities — especially paddleboard yoga. However, I guess my body didn’t like me paddleboarding on my knees, and it only made the swelling issue in my legs worse. I had no pain, nothing, but a few family members competed on my knees. So, I took a picture because I couldn’t “see” what they were referring to. I was a bit shocked, alarmed, and a bit concerned — to say the least. No pain. …
