The “OFF” (Out of Sorts) Day Workout | Gentle CARDIO + TONING When You’re Not Feeling Like Yourself

Wanna hear something hilarious?  Well, okay.  “Hilarious” is sort of setting myself up for failure, so let me try that again:  Wanna hear something that you might find mildly amusing?

Of course you do!

While I was putting together today’s workout, I worried that it might be a little short.  I was aiming for a nice, full body routine and I knew that I wanted to include plenty of warm up and cool down to really feel like it was a one-and-done video.  But while I was filming it, I felt like it was going well – not too short at all.  In my mind, it was a perfect length, about 25-30 minutes.

So, imagine my surprise when I went to turn off the camera and it showed my 55 minute run time!  😳

But that’s exactly what this routine feels like – it’s so lovely and easy-going, you simply don’t realize that you’ve gotten in a fabulous one hour workout.  This one is PERFECT for PMS, being hungover, feeling out-of-sorts, fighting illness, coming back from injury, pregnancy, moodiness, chronic conditions, having an “off” day, fibro flare ups, a not-quite-right feeling, bad days, wanting a break from the grind and more.

We’re doing GENTLE, low impact, moderately paced CARDIO and relaxed, choose-your-light-weights TONING with no timer beeps, no counting and honestly? No agenda, other than doing our best to feel better.

Includes a really thorough warm up, less talking than my other workouts, a not-speedy-but-still-sweaty workout, the nicest finisher ever, and a truly luxurious stretching cool down.
