I have been less motivated to get to the gym since the Tough Mudder. Decided to mix up my workout schedule a bit and try to do at least one class a week. I'm quite pumped by the opportunity it's giving me to challenge myself. The biggest change I'm making is having Sunday as (active) rest day and shifting my big run to Wed. I miss having a day to do a long early morning yoga session and a walk on the beach with the dogs. We'll see how it goes.
Just me a pair of baby Db’s and sometime,
30sec work 15 sec rest then 30sec body weight squats.
Objective is to get as many as you can in the first round... but wait for the kicker you then have to be within to of those numbers for the rest of the time, the time being 20mins straight
Balance challenge Monday. This is less of a hack of any real description that I’d recommend for attempting to improve something specific within your vestibular system. If anything, this one is more like training one part of your physiology in active recovery, as the SCCs are required to transduce sensory information to allow the nervous system to achieve balance once you’re on the ball. More so, it’s a fun challenge to to play around with.
Remember also that your vestibular system does help facilitate all of the extensor musculature in the body, so optimising postural function will be improved by paying attention to vestibular stimulation in your workouts.
In the two videos I’m overstimulating my horizontal semi circular canals. Left in one video & right in the other. Once they’re overstimulated & I’m dizzy, jumping on the Swiss ball to balance becomes significantly more difficult. It’s great fun to play with & that’s a big part of the reason I’d recommend implementing drills of this nature (at an appropriate level relative to balance capabilities) into your workouts.
I've been trying to mix up my lunches a bit and I recently discovered that I really like garbanzo beans. I figured why not try them with an @lotusfoods ramen and some other veggies. Turned out pretty good! Very filling!
ALL CHANGE We were all onboard with the ‘routine’ or some semblance of one at 3 months. I’d blogged last week about ‘time’ and the unfortunate random 5.30am starts but at least the ‘routine’ was in tact. Well now it’s all change and apparently the tiny human does not want to go to bed at 6.30, 7.00 or even 7.30. Apparently not satisfied with a bedtime bottle and dreamfeed she’d now like another at 1.00 Where does it all go? It’s like history repeating itself as Toby did exactly the same, the month before I returned to work. Fortunately I don’t go back to work next month. Also fortunately I know from experience that this will pass, that I don’t need to put on a brave smile, that I can ask for help and lazy slow days are perfectly fine. #mumlife#instamum#devonmum#mum#changeofroutine#mixingitup#itsaphase#itsgoodtotalk#lightitupletstalk#lightboxblogger#bloggertribe
