Eid 2016

Hello all!

It’s been a minute, right? From June 6th-July 6th I fasted for the month of Ramadan and it was nice to just spiritually disconnect from my “normal” routine. Prior to Ramadan starting, I was feeling a bit lost and unfocused when it came to exercising and  eating healthy. It was nice to just take a month spending time with my family and eating semi-nutritious food that would keep me functional for 16 hours and 29 minutes of no food and water.

But, let’s back up to right before Ramadan so share some fun fitness events/accomplishments!

1. I RAN A  MILE WITH A 10: SOMETHING IN IT!!

(after that I lost my running mojo and basically crashed and burned until the beginning of June)

 

2. I took my 100th PureBarre class!

I felt all 100 of those tucks!

 

3. Took an OUTDOOR spin class! (unless I am forgetting something this was my first outdoor class and I am so in love!)

Bonus points if you can spot me in this video!

So pretty much after this things I hit pause on all things fitness and kicked it with the family from the pre-fast meal at 3:30am and the ending fast meal at 8:40pm. Obviously, I worked and prayed in between.

The break was much needed because I am excited about returning to running, barre, biking and swimming again! All of which I plan on doing this week.

We went to Eggspectations for breakfast before making the rounds to celebrate with family and friends.

I’ve already kicked off my return to fitness with 2 runs, a barre class and as soon as I publish this post it’s back to the pool for my first swimming lesson of the year!

What are you doing today?

Fitness Lately

In case you missed it, it’s been raining for the past 17+ days here in the DMV. And believe me my fitness mojo has gone out the window. All I’ve been wanting to do after work is get into bed and relax for the evening. And that is pretty much all I’ve been doing. Lucky for me summer is almost here, and there are a lot of new exercise trends in 2016 to try out.

Don’t worry, in true SuperSana fashion I have not been totally sitting at home wasting away. This past mother’s day I surprised my mother with a hiking trip!

We headed to beautiful Great Falls, Virginia for a lovely afternoon of scrambling over rocks and enjoying the sights.

I am so happy that I get to live in an area where I have so many opportunities for fun fitness activities. As soon as the weather dries up, you better believe I will be out riding my bike.

Other than hiking, I have also been running. Last week we did HILL REPEATS. Usually, when I do a hill workout we take a small break after each repeat. However, this time we could only sip some water before heading back up. I was pooped for the rest of the week.

I have other workouts that I can do if I am feeling a little burnt out from running. I often hit up a barre class when I am in an exercise rut. I can’t believe I am only THREE classes away from hitting 100 Pure Barre classes. My seat has never looked better!

How are you managing to stay fit in this wet weather?
