Spin, Sweat, Meditate

Post Spin 😓

Spin is a great non impact workout that can help you burn fat and lose weight.

I just recently purchased a spin bike on Amazon a couple of weeks ago for under $300.

It’s well worth the money especially as I patiently wait for my knee to heal. Spinning provides a safe and effective low impact workout while I take a break from running. I also love the convenience of working out at home if I don’t have time to get to the gym.

I’ve found a great variety of spin workouts on YouTube such as strength, endurance, or high intensity calorie burn. Therefore the options are endless in regards to time, intensity and goal.

Here is the one I just finished. I got an amazing workout in around twenty minutes.

Just check out the many benefits below:

Also, meditation is a great way to relieve stress, improve health and sleep. Check out the new “Calm” app to guide you through simple meditations and proper breathing techniques.

Don’t Let The Weekends Destroy Your Progress

What did you do this week to help you move closer to your health and fitness goals? Did you food prep your meals in order to stay on your nutrition plan? Did you kill it in the gym this week pumping out more reps, weight, and intensity?

Think about all the effort you put into preparing meals, journaling intake, and resisting junk food and cravings during the week

Believe it or not, that’s the easy part…..

The hard part is when the weekend rolls around. It can be easy to destroy all the progress you gained during the week.

All it takes is an innocent splurge of drinks with friends one night, pizza and dessert the next.

All those calories can offset the progress you worked so hard to achieve during the week.

Plan your weekends just like the rest of the week. Plan extra activity to help burn excess calories. Choose light beer instead of calorie laden cocktails. Remember you can have fun and splurge but put some thought into sensible choices.
