To achieve my goal of living life as a healthy girl gamer, I need to exercise. I have been doing a mix of bodyweight exercises and kettlebells. Kettlebells are by far my favorite. I really enjoy gaining strength and learning new movements with the kettlebells. My wish would be for there to be a kettlebell coach in my area. As I live in nowhere close to a large city Western Colorado my wish is in vain.
There are lots of great video programs out there, however; I worry about my form. Only a coach can help with form, my head space only goes so far. I try to remember all the steps mentioned in books or videos as I workout but, I know i am missing the small cues.
Damn you YouTube for all your great videos! As I mentioned before I am doing Yoga with Adriene, I found her on YouTube, I am really enjoying adding in some yoga to my workouts. As I have gotten older I find my flexibility to be be lower, yoga is helping me with this.
I watch videos of street calisthenics and am amazed at what the human body can do. I am working on my pullup and pushup abilities, those alone will probably take me a year to master correctly. Damn you YouTube for showing me great ways to improve my health or possibly get hurt.
I want to be a healthy, mobile old lady someday so I am in this for the long haul, I want my progress to be sustainable.
How do you stay healthy?
