leila_corvina I made it to Day 6 of the 20-day Plank Challenge and I didn't die as much as I did last night!!! Yeah!!! Woohoo!!! it's getting easier to hold those planks! And I was actually able to do the 2-point plank balance for a few seconds! So looking forward to how I'll be by the time I finish this challenge. 14 more days!!! | via @codyapp #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthylife #healthjourney #healthandfitness #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #coreworkout #corestrengthening #plank #plankchallenge #workout #getfit 2mon

leila_corvina 30 minutes home practice after doing the plank challenge, followed by 10 minutes of meditation. Time to brew my ginger dates tea now! What a great way to unwind and end my rather stressful day--stressful because of the way I responded to it....tsk tsk...

leila_corvina OMG! I died! Day 5 of the 20-Day a Plank Challenge. I completed it though I'm sure I looked like one of those funny posts that go: "What I think I look like...What I really look like!" And I really cannot do the 2-point plank! I keep losing my balance! Is there some secret technique to doing this or my core is just really that weak? Well, at least I can now hold the straight arm full plank for the prescribed period without fainting and I'm finding it easier to do the plank slides. When I started, I could only do one! | via @codyapp #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthylife #healthjourney #healthandfitness #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #balance #plankchallenge #plank #workout #pushittothelimit # 2mon

leila_corvina Day 4 Of The 20-day Plank Challenge. Today was an active rest day so I had to do 2-minute planks 5 times throughout the day. I thought it would be easy pc but it really was an ACTIVE rest day! Whew! I did one during my lunch break, the second before going home, the third before dinner, the fourth before reading Yoga Journal and the last one just before going to bed. On to Day 5! Hope I'll be able to make it tomorrow! Sweet dreams! 😴 | via @codyapp #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #coreworkout #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthylife #healthjourney #healthandfitness #healthandwellness #discipline #lovelife #plank #plankchallenge #corestrengthening 2mon

leila_corvina 10 minutes of meditation and a short yoga practice before heading off to meet a friend for dinner. It has been a lazy day for me after a week of stress at work. Days like this, I wishing were out communing with nature... Photo is of a hike I took in Longqingxia Gorge two weeks ago.

leila_corvina Beautiful, clear day with blue skies in Beijing today! After almost a week of horrible pollution (with Air Quality Index readings of up to 422! Over 50 is considered lightly polluted already. Imagine 400! Normal for Beijing is between 100 and 209 which is very polluted already for other countries. ). Meditated 10 minutes via Headspace app and did my morning awakening yoga practice. Both with my daughter! Nice. Then headed out for a nice bike ride and have a nice, healthy brunch then relaxing to read a good book. Off to run errands now in this beautiful Sunday. Wish it wouldn't end or that all days in Beijing were like this! #yoga #beijing #workout #health #healthylife #healthjourney #healthandfitness #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #balance #nourish #nurture #peace #happy #happiness #namaste 2mon

leila_corvina Nope, not sausages, not pork. I'm cooking with vegan mock meat. Organic black rice, organic green mung bean soup with organic kale and vegan sausages cooked in organic cold-pressed unrefined virgin coconut oil. The mock meat is not organic, I think. Simple, tasty, healthy. And nothing like a sweet cat cozying up on your lap after a satisfying dinner. #vegan #glutenfree #vegetables #vegetarian #mockmeat #healthy #healthyeats #healthylife #homecooking #homemadefood #healthjourney #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #fitfam #balance #peace 2mon

leila_corvina Clean air and surrounded by nature during another Yoga in the Park session (background sound was the sound of the Lycée de Pékin scout troupe having fun ) . Then off to the Vegan Bash for a light lunch of organic and vegan food (the gluten free bread bun with organic veggies, hummus and pesto was so filling and delicious!) and for another batch of organic kale. Wish Beijing air were always this clean! | via @codyapp #yoga #yogaislife #yogaeveryday #yogainthepark #outdooryoga #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #funfitness #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthandwellness #healthylifestyle #healthandfitness #healthjourney #healthylife #health #happy #balance #beijing #chaoyangpark #getmoving 2mon

leila_corvina Last day of the Salsa and Bachata Festival. We learned a few other steps of Dominican Bachata during the first hour and finished learning the bachata performance routine during the last two hours. It was fun! Especially flying in the air and trusting that your partner will catch you in time for the next move! #latindance #latindancepassion #bachata #beijing #balance #salsalover #bachatalover #dance #danceworkshop #dominicanbachata #salsabachatafestival #salsabachatafestivalbeijing #bachatapassion #alienramirez #chaca 3mon

leila_corvina Dance! Day 3 of the Salsa and Bachata Festival workshops. With Alien Ramirez again. Learned ladies styling with focus on arms, hands, and head during the first hour --so pretty and elegant! Completed learning the choreography of the performance class during the next two hours--it is fast and exhausting but so much fun learning it! I've never sweated this much in a salsa class! I felt like collapsing but I made it and I can't believe I got the whole choreography! Alien is so inspiring! | via @codyapp #dance #danceworkshop #salsa #salsalover #salsapassion #salsabachatafestival #salsabachatafestivalbeijing #alienramirez #ilovedance #ilovesalsa #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #funfitness #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthandfitness #healthjourney 3mon

leila_corvina Three back-to-back dance classes again during Day 2 of the Salsa and Bachata Festival! Learned Dominican bachata and musicality from Chaca if Colombia and Alien Ramirez of Cuba and had loads of fun learning the steps and doing some cool moves with my dance partner for the workshops. For me, dance is truly the fun way to do fitness! It doesn't even feel like you're exercising or working out! | via @codyapp #salsabachatafestivalbeijing #beijing #bachata #dominicanbachata #latindance #latindancepassion #ilovedance #ilovebachata #dance #danceworkshop #alienramirez #chaca 3mon

leila_corvina Salsa and Bachata Festival, Day 1. Three back-to-back dance workshops this afternoon with 18 time World Latin Dance Champion, Alien Ramirez of Cuba. Awesome! Enjoyed it so much and learned a lot about Afro-Cuban dance movements and the three basic salsa styles. #salsa #bachata #alienramirez #dance #latindance #ilovedance #latindancepassion #salsapassion #salsalover #ilovesalsa #danceworkshop #beijing #salsabachatafestival 3mon

leila_corvina Yay! I made it thru Day 2 of the 20-day Plank Challenge! 18 more days to go! I do hope I'll be able to complete this! Already I've noticed a bit of improvement in my ability to carry out the exercises in this challenge, with the exception of the full sit ups like the V-ups (I look really funny and awkward doing it! ), butterfly sit ups and sliding sit ups. I know someday I'll be able to do those things, even if it takes me longer than the 20 days of this challenge! | via @codyapp #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthandfitness #healthandwellness #plank #challenge #workout #codyapp #plankchallenge #coreworkout 3mon

leila_corvina My core is quite weak so I've decided to concentrate on strengthening it with this Plank Challenge. Wow, it was quite a workout for me! I was shaking by the time I got to the last plank and I can't even do a full sit up! I'm hoping I'll be able to do this faithfully so that my core will be stronger and I'll finally be able to do a full sit up--and double pirouettes! | via @codyapp #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #health #healthandfitness #fitnessjourney #healthjourney 3mon

leila_corvina I'm trying to get my workout routine back on track now that things at work are settling down more. Did a HIIT workout followed by a few yoga and dance stretches to cool down. Felt good to get really sweaty again! I hope to do this regularly as it was before the new school year started so this motivational poster I found is quite fitting for my current circumstances. | via @codyapp #fitfam #fitmom #fitlife #fitness #fitlifestyle #fitnessjourney #healthjourney #hiit #health #healthylife #healthandfitness #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #balance #motivation #getfit #getactive #getmoving #moveyourbody #getoffyourass 3mon
