The Gift of a New Day

Today for my 44 I decided to take a move that I’ve done on the floor and do it on a stability ball.  I started in plank – 


From here I did alternating lunges –

back to plank
back to plank
left lunge
left lunge

Not gonna lie – holding plank on the ball was a challenge and then doing a total of 44 lunges with each leg – HARD!!!!

Since today was a day off with the Michelle Bridges program, I did one of my all-time favorites – Les Mills Pump – Combat.  I love this workout!!!  45 minutes of punching and kicking that goes by so quickly and  I always feel like I got a good workout afterwards!!

This morning I realized that I need to get back to waking up and being excited for the day ahead instead of being so consumed by my To-Do list.  I need to appreciate the beauty that I have every morning when I wake up and have an entire day ahead of me to use however I want.

I think that far to often I go to bed feeling like I didn’t accomplish enough or that I wasted time and then I wake up feeling the same way and it sets a negative tone for the entire day.  However, I’m choosing to focus on the beauty and newness of each day and let go of the mistakes from the day before!!!

Make each day count because it really is a gift!!!

Today (and each new today), I choose to start fresh and live the day to the max – enjoying each new exciting challenge that comes my way!!!  Bring it!!!

Happy Sunday!!!  It’s a new day!!!
