I decided that this year during our summer break from fitness classes I was going to try a few different types of workouts. I like workouts that are quick 30 mins or less when I’m at home as I feel this is the easiest way to fit it into my morning routine.
Anyways I started the 21 Day Tabata Yoga Body Challenge by DailyOM last Thursday. I did Thursday and Friday and then we were busy this weekend so I wasn’t able to get Saturday and Sunday done so I started back with Day 1 today. I’m loving this challenge so far – very quick and in my opinion extremely effective so far. Oh my goodness I can safely say there are some muscles I have been neglecting. 🤪🤪
The instructor Sadie is very easy to follow and the whole workouts are less then 30 mins including a wonderful warm up and cool down with Yoga poses.
Highly recommend this challenge that you can easily pop into your morning routine.

It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned fitness guru or a beginner there are times when you will have sore muscles after a workout. 

I know for myself the first week of classes after we’ve had a bit of a break is always a bit of a muscle kicker.  I usually do not workout during the breaks between class sessions as this is my self care.  But there are still times when even a new round in a class will kick my butt and make me feel it for the next day or so.

My biggest tip would be a hot bath or shower (obviously with your beverage of choice 😘😁) and then stretch out any soreness with either DownDog,



Runner Lunge,

and Child’s Pose with arms.

Start off at 15 secs each side and do that a few times until it feels better then move up your time to say 25/30 secs etc.)

If you are an essential oil person I’ve tried a few combinations but the tried and true one that has never let me or my family down is this one:

10 drops peppermint

10 drops lavender

10 drops copaiba

10 drops PanAway

10 drops of Wintergreen (Optional for those really really bad aches!)

Your choice of carrier oil

Also – DON’T QUIT just because you have sore muscles – this will pass. If you quit each time you have sore muscles the cycle will repeat itself so you are best off just to push through. 😔😎
