my favorite kind of day + a quick bodyweight workout
And I made it to the beach.
Some of you may agree with me, some of you might not get it, but I was so excited to go to the beach alone. I mostly did this because everyone else works on Mondays, but I love some good alone time.
I grabbed a Greek salad and a green juice (I’m such a blogger) after taking a Pure Barre class, and I was off! Once I got myself all set up at the beach I scarfed my food and then settled in for a couple hours of reading.
I did take a dip in the water but it wasn’t as refreshing as I was hoping for–it felt like warm bath water.
It’s days like this that make me so grateful to live in a city that has quick (and gorgeous) beach access. I totally don’t take advantage of the beach as much as I should, but when I make it there I’m always so happy.
Anyway, onto another thing! My sister sent me a cool and handy workout from the New York Times. It’s a simple, intense, bodyweight workout that hits all major muscle groups and optimizes the exercise order so your muscles are always ready to perform. This is actually a lot like the bootcamp class I used to teach! The key is to make it intense, really work for it.
Feeling bold? Try it!
