Health Ranked #1 On Momarock

July Blogger Challenge– #17: Post your favorite blog post, AND the fan favorite from your readers.

My post regarding my health scare still receives the most hits on a daily basis, even though I wrote the post over a year ago. It also received the most comments from other individuals seeking guidance and information. I appreciate that I’ve helped to ease fears, and I’ve done all I can to promote regular physicals/check-ups, because being proactive is the best means of defense when it comes to health woes. This post is the fan fave, and due to how personal it is- it’s my favorite, as well.

For today’s workout, I started the morning with a 3 mile run. I made sure to take it easy, since I’ve been sick. I followed it up with some strength moves. Check ’em out, and see if you can apply this in your own workouts. As you can see, I did this in my own home, and my son took the pictures. He’s a budding photographer. 🙂 Do each movement twice, 60 seconds in length.

Running man:

With one leg solid in front, place the other one behind you, and then bring it back next to the solid leg. Do this as fast as you can.
