The workout

I just had to get in a workout today because I did nothing yesterday. And when I say nothing, I’m meaning that I did not even leave my apartment building to even get something as simple as some ice cream which I craved, but just didn’t have the desire to leave. I believe it was because I was fatigued from my last workouts which were pretty hard hitting on top of the yoga for weight loss exercises. I think going into this oncoming week, I will spread things out because as the weather gets warmer I will be incorporating more outdoor runs and bike rides which won’t be any different than those last workouts.

Taking a look at the exercises I had in store for me during this workout, I thought to myself “Holy shit” when I saw, the pillar. And it didn’t stop because there was another exercise called, the swimmer, as well as my favorite, yep! The checkmark! My first time doing the checkmark I cramped, but my body has gotten well used to it now, but with the pillar and the swimmer before it I imagined that it wouldn’t be as fun. The run portion was unexpected because I was a little on the fence with the weather being that it was in the mid-forties.


  • Forward slopes
  • The pillar
  • The slopes
  • The line
  • The swimmer
  • The checkmark
  • The hundred
  • Raising the leg
  • The clock
  • Baby position


  • Knees up – 20 Repetitions
  • 1.93 mile run
  • 25 jumping jacks
  • 25 push ups
  • The swing- 20 Repetitions
  • 30 mountain climbers
  • 20 Reverse crunches

Other than struggling with my form during the pillar, I enjoyed this workout entirely. It always feels good getting the yoga for weight loss exercises in because I enjoy adding previous exercises as a bonus. Stay safe everyone, but keep active!
