Good morning beauties… and beautifuls *LOL!*
As you can see, I am in a great mood, and my trip to the spa yesterday is largely responsible for that!
I got a 50-minute Swedish massage and it felt great! The masseuse had strong hands *just the way I like it!* and really worked on my shoulders and legs. I was in heaven!
Plus what could be better than a date with a friend that you haven’t seen in a WHILE at the spa?! Girl’s time at its finest!
Everyone deserves a treat every now and then. Even Bella!
Guys!!! She is crazyyyyy about carrots! She’ll do anything for them!
There is something I’d like to discuss with you today. I’ve got a question: What happens to us when we grow up?
Last summer, as I was sitting outside in a square during my lunch break. I saw these two kids. They where having the time of their lives!
Do you remember being a worry-free kid running and jumping around all day long, climbing trees, falling down, scraping knees and yet getting up laughing and continuing to run? Somehow throughout the years, we tend to lose this ability. Running and jumping becomes a chore or a to-do thing on our daily list. When we ‘fall’, we fall hard. When we get hurt, we tend to shut ourselves off as a defense mechanism.
How about going back to basics and being a kid within again? Not only will this bring in happiness and enjoyment back into our lives, but also health and success.
My workout today, as per the Spartan guide, is as follows.
Cross-train: Do this outside.
Jump rope for 10 minutes.
15 walking lunges on each leg
15 stone deadlifts
Belly-crawl 10 yards
10 stone squat chest-pass (hold the at chest height, squat the stone, then chest pass it as far as possible. Pick up the stone and repeat 10 times)
Repeat the cycle twice.
Super Spartan Run: 4-mile trail tempo run
Warm up 2 miles with a heart rate in zone 2;
Run 4 miles with heart rate in zone 4;
Cool down 2 miles with heart rate in zone 2.
How do you bring your kid out from within?
