At the end of her exhausting workout, she shared some positivity: “Friday finish!! Wishing you strength!”
HARD AT WORK
Deborah has been showing off her strength by hitting the gym often since recovering from being sick.
Last month, she shared a video on Instagram of herself walking outside, heading to the gym.
“It’s that time again,” she told followers. “Time to work out!”
She then shared a photo of her trainer and insisted there’s “no turning back now.”
“But thinking of sidestepping,” Deborah joked, as she literally side-stepped on a Bosu ball for some balance and cardio training.
In another clip from her training, Al’s wife bench-pressed 20lb weights in each hand,
She posted multiple videos of herself getting the move in from different angles.
Other clips saw the GMA contributor working out her abs, both on the bench and on the floor.
“Let’s bring the knees up,” her trainer could be heard telling her as she did mountain climbers with her feet on a Bosu ball and her forearms on a foam roller.
WE WERE ON A BREAK
The busy reporter previously revealed that she was going to be taking a bit of a “break.”
Deborah said she had “a frog in her throat” and felt under the weather.
“Sometimes your body says ‘Enough. It’s time to take a break, recharge, renew’ and I think my body is screaming that right now,” she said.
Al’s wife later updated fans on how she’s been feeling and explained a bit more about what kind of break she had been taking.
“I just thought in an impromptu way that I would just jump on and say hello and say thank you all so very much for your nice messages of support and encouragement that I do a little self-care, which I did.”
She then went on to explain: “And I just also wanted to clarify.
“Because my brother somehow got the impression last week when I last came on to talk about the weekend and I said I was taking some days off, he got the impression that I was like walking away from my life and my career and all of that.
“So he wondered if everything was alright. Everything is all right!”
The ABC host clarified: “What I said is that I was tired and I was taking a long weekend plus a day to kind of check in on myself and to check in on my mental health, my emotional health.
“I was feeling tired.”
Deborah added that when she“started to get sick, she felt it was the “perfect timing” for he to take “a break from social media” and focus on herself a bit.
