Which Celebrity Workout is Right for You?

For the heck of it, I took a quiz this morning to find out which celebrity workout is right for me.  After responding to 10 questions, this is what I was told.  

You are a “spiritual seeker”.  You are a spiritual soul, in search of higher meaning in life.  You are looking for a fitness routine that will help you explore the sacred relationship between body and mind.  You’ll enjoy workouts that nourish your spiritual side while strengthening your body, like these celebs’ favorites:

  • Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston do Pilates
  • Britney Spears sculpts her body with dance classes
  • Madonna, Ashley Judd and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by yoga
  • Other workouts to try:  Tai chi, karate, cross-country skiing, meditation and swimming

The sun sets today before 5pm.  Yes! 5pm.  Having motivation to get myself to the gym seems harder and harder and lately, I just haven’t been going.  I have, however, taken a bigger interest in working out at home and doing more Bikram yoga sessions.  I finally bought a few at home items like the ball, resistance bands and balance board to keep me from making excuses. 

I can pretty much agree that at this point in my life, I am seeking for a more solid relationship with my body and mind.  Making moves to go back to Peg City and start a personal traiing/lifestyle consulting/freelance writing business is an exciting step in my life.  Yet moving towards the direction of dreams is often an anxiety producing feeling…  And the Libra that I am, I am seeking now for balance and calmness before my mind goes crazy with 10 million thoughts and 0 action.

By setting short term goals and long term dreams, I can remain focused.  But with work, holidays, everyday to dos, it’s really hard to maintain and even harder to stay focused.  Yoga has helped me tremendously and I can’t wait to be with my Pilates instructor/best girlfriend Linda to get my core training in December.  In preparation for the upcoming holidays and cold winter weather,  all I can do to feel small accomplishments is set weekly goals.  I spent the last week resting from the work, training and diet for the FitnessLicious shoot.  I ate whatever, drank til I got drunk and worked out only two times.

This week, I’m back at it.  Yoga, ab training, strength training using a push/pull regime and taking up a new activity.  What that will be yet, I dunno.  Time for new adventures and new challenges. 

 

“NOW” is the operative word.  Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream.  You don’t need endless time and perfect conditions.  Do it now.  Do it today.  Do it for 20 minutes and watch you heart start beating”
