Thrive90 – Half Way Point

I have officially completed six of the twelve weeks of Thrive90! This means I have two more weeks of Phase Two and then four weeks of Phase Three.

Phase Two has definitely been more challenging than Phase One, but that’s a good thing. I am doing more; challenging myself. My muscles may not like it at first, but I know it’s working.

For example, in one of the new videos I had to do two sets of walking lunges. Now I had never done these before, and I had to do two sets of 20 each. The first part was ok, but it really burned toward the end of each set. The next day, I felt like my muscles were on fire! Fast forward to this week when I had to do the same thing again. They were still difficult to do toward the end, but the next day there were fewer fires to put out! Progress.

The other new thing in Phase Two is Power Yoga. Now I was a bit leary of yoga given its association with Hinduism and Buddhism. And being Catholic, I was not interested in the spiritual aspect of this form of exercise. But I remembered that either Dustin or Tony (co-creators of Thrive90 and FitMarriage) had emphasized that  they were making use of the fitness aspect of these moves only as they were Christians themselves. So I put my “pre-conceived” notions aside and gave it a try. It turned out to be a great workout! I got my heart rate up a bit, broke a sweat, and worked my whole body. Even the next day, though my muscles were still a little sore, I felt more rested than I had in a while. This has turned into one of my favorite videos to do.

    Hey, thanks for checking on me. Everything is fine. I don’t remember seeing a comment, but maybe I deleted it by accident. I have just been extremely busy at home, work, & kids sports. July starts our busy time here.
    Thanks again for checking on me. 🙂

      Yeah, we’re trying to have fun! I know that when we workout together, just him being there pushes me a little harder. I take more water breaks when I work out alone. Thanks, again, for all of your support!

    I absolutely love yoga! When I was doing it regularly it was amazing how good my body felt. I just have to get myself back into the groove. My husband lifts weights to and has zero flexibility. I’ve been trying to get him to do yoga with me, he’s considering it. Congratulations on doing so well with your program

      My hubby has done the yoga with me once and the core workouts twice, I think. Feel free to use my hubby as a little light peer pressure. He says he realizes how much he needs this now. Thanks for stopping by!

    Good for you. And kudos for being so disciplined. I used to exercise a lot and have let myself become very lazy. My husband and I used to work out together alot too and it was so great to have that thing in common
