Something New

Today I’m linking up with Jill Conyers and Jessica for #dishthefit and the optional topic is Try Something New. As most of you know in January I participated in a challenge to run 100 miles during the month (and did I mention that I DID IT – 100 miles — boom!). I love running and it is still the easiest way for me to workout (no prep or thought required except for maybe a quick weather check) but sometimes I need to change it up. Here are a few ways that I’m going to add to my running in order to mix it up in February.

  • 2015/02/img_3283.jpgTry Zumba – I recently purchased the FabFitFun VIP Winter Box and in it was a Zumba DVD created by Legendary Zumba creator, Beto. The part I’m most excited about is to try the one hour workout in the privacy of my home rather than in a group fitness class where everyone will notice that I’m challenged in the dance department.
  • Yoga – As I’ve mentioned in my fitness goals for the year I want to practice yoga on a more regular basis (I’ve been attending one class per week since October, but want to do more). I did not stick with the 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene however I did archive the videos and plan to pick up where I left off….which may or may not have been around day five. To further motivate me, I signed up for the #TakeTheLeap With PrAna and SweatPink Yoga Challenge. 
  • Push-Ups – A couple of years ago, I started doing 10 push-ups every night before bed. It was amazing how quickly I noticed visible results in my arms. I haven’t been doing them regularly for quite some time and I’m bringing them back this February. Today’s SweatPink #NoExcuses Challenge happens to be 20 push-ups, so I will start today!
  • PiYo – This is the month that I will try PiYo! While we don’t have the class at my gym, I will check out PopSugar or another online resource to find an intro class and check this one off my list of workouts to try!

What are some things that you want to try? Have you tried PiYo or Zumba?

Until Next Time,

  1. I’ve been going with my friends to Zumba and it’s definitely a lot of fun! I’ve never had the chance to try PiYo yet, but hooray for push ups and yoga!

  2. I just need to commit to the time that it takes. We are trying to get our house ready to sell and it seems like every free moment we are painting, organizing, packing, cleaning…. I should just get up a little earlier each day and I’d get it in…#NoExcuses right?

  3. Love your attitude and plan to try new things! And smart idea with trying a new class in your own home…so many people are intimidated to try classes for fear of looking foolish, but that it such a smart idea to get started and then transition into a class. And, thanks for the push-up inspiration, I needed that! Take care!
