Big plan is to really push in 2021 to lose some weight and be much healthier!
Some power yoga would help with both of those!

I've been steady on the diet recently and running with my daughter and seeing the weight slowly going down again

Goodluck and have fun. You have a bet with her on who will win?
She wants to run it together as a team and it not be a race between the two of us. I honestly don't want to find out if she can beat me yet as it's likely closer than I want to believe

It'll be fun to run together. My wife and I did a run years ago, and it was fun sticking together and pushing each other.

The pandemic really got to me, but I am back on it and being active every day.

Here is to a solid start to 2021!

Lose weight, build core and lower back strength and then increase range of motion.

I am concentrating on the weight initially and then as soon as the gyms open up again, I am going to hit it hard.

Time to get after it today, and really start something a step above what I've been doing. Feeling ready!

Great high intensity cardio workout really kicked my butt. What I used to do with relative ease keeps getting harder and harder. Gotta keep pushing on!

I pushed through a new distance goal with trail running. I just managed to do a 2.75 mile continuous run with over 300 ft of elevation gain. When I was heavily into mountain biking I would never consider running, but I'm starting to really enjoy this 30-45 minutes of intense workout. I'm very fortunate to have access to this right out my front door.

Shoveled some snow, pulled the kids on their sleds, and still got some pushups and dumbbell work in today. Going to sleep well!

After crawling around a church attic yesterday, I didn't know how today was going to go, but it went great!
230 squats, 95 overhead press, 345 deadlift with double overhand grip for all reps. Bring on the weekend!

Been getting into a great routine. Yoga morning and night, pushups and core training randomly throughout the day, and mix in some dumbbell workouts as I can. Been feeling more energized, and just in time to splurge for Thanksgiving! Don't know if that's good or bad, but we'll find out soon enough ;)
What yoga routine are you doing? Any recommendation for youtube videos/DVD's?

Yes. I've been doing the following from SaraBeth on YouTube. Try some of her beginner yoga to see how it goes, if you are just starting out. My wife and I subscribed through her app, which costs a bit of money, but it has members only plans which we enjoy. These youtube videos are free, and were a great starting point for us.

It will be difficult at first. But give it time time, and you will feel better and notice more range of motion.

I started adding so yoga to work on improved flexibility and quickly realized he im balanced I am. In a week I can already see how this will help my golf.

Between balance, core strength, and range of motion, I think yoga is a vital piece of keeping my body in golf shape as the years pass. I'm a year into yoga, and wish I knew its benefits when I was playing soccer in college.

Restarted my weight training Tuesday. Worked out Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I do stretches after each workout. Signed up with True Motion Golf Thursday evening.

Been off my workout schedule since the end of February. Enough is enough!

Started my diet on Sunday, but I'm only half-a**ing it until after NYD. That's when I'll bear down. That's also when I'll throw HIIT cardio back in the mix.
