Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this days and weeks we all are going through 🧡
Well,- obviously I can’t just “wait and wait and wait” to the “correct time” to start with my different exercises and workout again, that’s for sure 😊. So it was just to “kick start” my body again this week, and get it “up and running” agsin, moving out the different muscles here and there and everywhere 🤸♀️. And it was so hard 😳. Oh my 😅, but oh! So great feeling after when I’m finish “toubling” around there in my bedroom and bathroom 🤸♀️.
2- 3 months ago I did my exercises and workout 3 to 5 times a week, and then around 1 to 1,5 hour per time. How many times a week I did exercise did depended a bit how I was working, and some other things that’s happening in life. But when my oldest son and his friend did move in I actually did stop working out on regular basis. I started walking to my job instead.
The reason why I stopped working out on my regular basis was because my “workout room” is/ was one of my guest room. And the plan was anyway that the boys just should stay here for around 1 month. And I could “survive” one month without my “workout room” 😊.
Well, it has been a bit longer then one month 😳. I also did stopp walking to my job a bit before the coronavirus became big news in Spain, that’s because I had a couple of appointments to reach before or after my job where I did needed to use my car. Actually some “lazy” excuses, because I probably could have managed to pressed in a bit exercises and workout. Anyway,- I didn’t, and I did regret that a bit this Monday to be honest, when I did “kick start” my body again 😅. Oh my,- it was so hard to start working out again 🤸♀️.
I’m lucky because I have a bit workout – equipment that’s my own in my home. And now at days there’s also so many good ideas and suggestions online, both on Facebook, Instagram and more too, for how to do the workout and exercises at home….when you are in quarantine and curfew, for example 🤸♀️. But a tiny bit space is necessary to do some of the different exercises. And space is not to much of in my home at the moment. Just because the different furnitures that was standing in both of the guests rooms are stable a bit around here and there other places in my home, so there should be space and place to “the boy’s” different things and stuffs in the guests rooms 😊.
Now I have my walking machine in my bedroom. It was a tiny little space between my bed and the balcony door. My weights are in my bathroom, and I also need to do the weights exercises in my bathroom, and my yoga exercises,- well,- I’m doing them in between my bedroom and my bathroom. It all worked out fine, it was just me that was not quite in the same “tipp- topp quality” as I was 3 months ago 😅. I also have some stairs to go up and down too in my home, just to get some more and various exercises,- if I feel for doing that 😊.
So, yes,- it actually felt as I did “kick start” my body again after a to long “holiday” 😅. But at the same time it felt so great after, when I was finish with my different exercises. So the good thing is,- I also did “kick started” my mind again to get back in my regular workout routines 😊. And I know it will not be to difficult to get my workout routines “back on track”. It’s probably my body that’s need a bit longer time to be back on track after some months without to much exercises. At the same time, it will take shorter time to be where I was in form and shape 3 months ago, then when I first did started with my regular workout from my home for about 1,5 – 2 years ago 🤸♀️.
I have made a workout plan, I’m using most of the different exercises from my last workout routines and plan, I just need to start on a bit lower level then I was at 3 months ago 😊. But that’s my own “mistake”, and my own “excuses” to “wait a bit”/ “put my exercises on hold” for a while because of different reasons. I know that even if I need to put my exercises “on hold” in the future for different reasons, it’s still always some movements it’s possible to do to just “keep the body up and running” 😊. It’s better to do a bit then nothing at all. And I do work out for some various reasons.
I know to do work out will keep my weight up as long as I work out and do exercises on regular basis, – and of course at as well 😅. I do exercises because I don’t want to loose weight. I also know a strong body handle sickness much better, and also the aging process much better too 😊. And a happy and healthy body created also a happy and healthy mind. Something that’s maybe even more important during this period we all are in this days then it has been before 😊.
Monday and Tuesday this week was hard to do the workout and exercises,- but for every day it gets a bit easier 😊. And that’s a great feeling just to feel that,- okay, a couple of months without to much exercises haven’t done to much “harm” for my body, even it felt like a “kick start” on Monday and Tuesday this week. It has probably been much harder if this was my first workout sessions for much more then 3 months ago.
So fare I have managed to start up again with some of my good routines for my body, like working out and do some exercises, and hopefully I will manage to keep it this way now, even therefore different reasons will be days and weeks where I’m “out of my routines”,- but hopefully not for 3 months one more time 😊.
I have also manage to eat my 10 blueberries every day for almost a year now, as well as a carrot every day to avoid sun eczema when it is time to start sunbathing again. And this week I have also been taking a lemon shot with a bit honey every morning, as well as eating a bit oatmeal soup before my workout sessions 🤸♀️.
But it takes more then 5 days to work in good and healthy routines in my life, I know that 😊. So,- I can “brag” a bit more about my healthy and good routines after a bit more then a month or two, I think. If I’m then still doing my different exercises, workout and also some healthy food routines like lemon shot and oatmeal, and probably a bit more, I can “brag” a bit more over good routines then today 😊. It takes in general 21 days to change a habit, get new routines in life, and around 90 days to get a new lifestyle. This 21 days to change a habit is a thrut with modification, because research shows it takes 66 days to change a habit,- more and less.
We all have good and bad habits,- one of my “bad” habits is this “need” for a clean kitchen and bathroom 😉,- a habit I’m not going to even try to change, even my kitchen has not been cleaned up the way I wanted to have it for the more and less 2 months 😊. My bathroom is fine because I’m the only one that’s using it. I have also some other bad habits, but I think I will try to change a couple of them with put in some new and good habits in my lifestyle instead 😊. For me, as the person I’m, – it seems easier to get some new, healthy and good habits and routines in my life and then the not to good and not to healthy will actually disappear slowly just because of that 😊.
So let’s see where I’m in around 2,5 and 3 months when it comes to changing habits, get some new habits and a new lifestyle 😊. Now at days it’s difficult to plan to much anyway for most of us 💚. But one thing is for sure,- to keep our body moving now at days when most of us are “locked down” and inside our homes is more important then before, – for both our body as well as our mind 💚.
I’m going to try to do my best to continue with my exercises and workout, that also has been a big part of my weekly routines before. And I m going to do my best to continue with my morning my lemon shot, oatmeal and honey in my daily routines too. The blueberries and carrots are already a part of my daily routines for a while 😊. Then I see how the life is in around 3- 4 months.
Are you doing some exercises and workout during this time we all are going through? In case,- what are you doing in your home? And do you “believe” in this saying “it takes 21 days to change a habit, and 90 days to get a new lifestyle”? If you believe, then in case why? And if you don’t believe the saying has any function, why not? 😊
I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Take care, stay home if you can- exception is life necessary work / or doings 🧡. I’m sending you a lots of good thoughts 🧡. And Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.
See you soon 😊
To do some workout and exercises at home are even more important now at days then before 🤸♀️. A happy and healthy body creates also a happy and healthy mind 😊. I did started up again with my “workout sessions” in my home this week- it felt a bit like “kick start” for my body again,- it was very hard, but still so very good 😊.
