Action items for Sunday, April 26th:
EMOM 10 minutes
12 weighted squats or 20 bodyweight squats
12 weighted sprawl deadlift or 20 bodyweight sprawl jumps
EMOM, or Every Minute On the Minute, is a workout style that challenges you to work efficiently in order to afford yourself a rest at the end. Time yourself for 10 minutes. Now, start your 12 weighted squats or 20 bodyweight squats. Once you've finished ( should take about 40 seconds give or take) the rest of the minute (about 20 seconds) is a rest. At minute number two, complete 12 weighted sprawl deadlifts or 20 bodyweight sprawl jumps. Note: A sprawl jump is NOT a burpee, work on getting your hips to the floor as you sprawl your legs back. Also, no push up!
At LEAST 10 minutes yoga flow
Yoga is as good for the body as it is the mind. Find 10 minutes of your day to perform a 'yoga flow'. A yoga flow is 2-6 yoga poses put together in a sequence that allows cyclical movement back to the beginning.
Throw out or donate 3 things you don't have use for anymore
There's many things that we can throw out and choose not to. Look around your house. How many things do you use daily? Weekly? Monthly? Is there anything that is just sitting there collecting dust and taking up space? I know for me, there are PLENTY of things I haven't touched since moving in!
Take today to remove 3 items from your life; whether its cleaning out your fridge of leftovers, finally getting rid of those extra extra plates you have (just in case you nee to feed an army!), cleaning out your shirt drawer (how many shirts do you actually wear?), etc.
Note: Throwing out/donating your children's toys and clothes is also a good idea, however, does NOT count towards your three things!
This isn't anything new, but sugar is basically tasty poison. There are so many studies, books, articles out there showing just how BAD this stuff is for you and HIGHLY addictive. That's why even though we know it's terrible, we still buy it! Surprisingly, the less sugar you eat, the LESS YOU CRAVE IT. Of course, there's an adjustment period, as there is with everything. It usually takes about a week of horrid cravings, but after that, you are FREE! Your body adjusts and you actually feel better. I'll link some articles for you below:
