Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – just as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! Howdy howdy . . . Yesterday was a notable milestone for me . . . I celebrated 30 straight days of Peloton classes. I got my Peloton 30 days ago yesterday. . . and I did a class every day for 30 days! I’ve never worked out for 30 straight days friends. . . this was a huge milestone for me and I’m so proud of the effort I’ve put in this last month.
In 30 days . . .
- done 93 workouts (48 cycling, the rest stretching, walking, strength training or meditation)
- biked 278.1 miles
- burned 12,516 calories
- invested 24 hrs and 21 minutes into taking care of myself
And because of that . .
- my resting heart rate is down
- I’ve gone down a pant size
- I’ve lost 8 pounds (without changing diet – I’ll work on that this month)
- I’m sleeping better
- I have so much more energy
I’m rewriting the narrative in my head that I am no good at fitness-related things. I’m rerouting my train of thought that assumes I will quit when it gets hard or I get too busy. I am re-wiring my brain to believe that I can do hard physical things and do them regularly. And I’m reprioritizing the gift of time – so that within the 24 hrs I’m given every day (a gift for sure!), that I’ve carved out an hour for myself.
I had heard people rave about their Peloton for years and it wasn’t until I got one myself that I can see how motivating it is. The instructors are inspiring, the classes fun, the workout hard and the statistics addicting! I love competing with myself and seeing myself get stronger. If you are thinking about getting a Peloton – PM or email me and I’ll give you a code for $100 toward accessories with your purchase (you can use it on your shoes)! And you can follow me at #RisingTideRide. . . here’s to another 30 days. . .
Last night we had Egg Roll in a Bowl for dinner. It’s such an easy meal to throw together – it literally takes less than 30 minutes, especially if you buy coleslaw mix and matchstick carrots – because you don’t have to slice/dice – you just toss it all together! I really need some variety in our menu plan lately – after a year of mostly cooking every meal at home, we’re getting a little bored of the same old, same old.
Head over to Ramona Rose and check out our newest selection of Mountain Madness products. . .made in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, I just love the quality and wholesomeness of their soaps, bath bombs, lip balms, body butters and more.
