Tips to run a successful business

If you want results…

Total Body Lift (on BOD) + 25 min Spin + my fav BCAAs =

If you want results, you're going to have to stop doing what's comfortable - workouts & eating habits- even though they may already may be challenging & healthy.

Keep your body & your taste buds guessing so you're not plateauing or getting BORED.

If you want results

Make the decision to change the direction of your life

Ugh.. that bicep shrunk a little! My lifting has been slacking a little this summer & surprise surprise, it shows! As a Coach, I have to step it up! The best built in accountability comes from having to lead by example, not with perfection but with authentically working towards your best you.

I was asked recently why I'm stronger & fitter now than I was 10+ years ago in the Turbo cast. Mainly it's bcuz I don't sit at a desk all day anymore & actually have more time for my workouts, more time for sleep, healthy meals & reduced stress.

Once you make the decision to change the direction of your life, your actions follow. Don't wait for your actions to change & then assume the decision to commit will come to you. It doesn't happen that way. The decision comes first & that's up to you!

Lacrosse Ball for Rehab

Who's injured & therefore off the exercise wagon??

I use a lacrosse ball against the wall to relieve that nagging knot I sometimes get in my traps, or sometimes it's near my scapula, or at my lower back -the Quadratus Lumborum muscle. There are tons of great rehab accounts on FB & IG that might help u! Just do some searches.

Don't just assume your aches, pains & injuries are reasons to stop exercising all together ...see a Dr if it warrants that but definitely don't just throw in the towel -work to improve the root of the problem.

 

 

Hurt Foot/Let Workout

Ok, first of all, if you don't have access to battle ropes, replacing that with kettlebell swings or even just 20 tricep dips off of a bench, you'll still get your heart rate up if you go from one thing to the next.

The pull-ups can be resistance-band-assisted of course

This is meant to be for CARDIO purposes for someone that can't run, jump, squat with full body weight on both legs/feet. I had to do workouts like this for 6 months when I pulled my hamstring & now my son is having to do these.

But of course NO single workout will work for EVERY injury, so this is just something to tweak.

Do what YOU have been cleared by a Dr to do!

Be sure to warm up first & cool down and stretch afterwards.

Structure or Intuition?

What's your preference?
Structure & guidelines ..or being intuitive ?

You've heard of intuitive eating? Well I do intuitive exercising. In other words, each day my workout is dependent on what I feel I need ..but also taking into consideration what I *want* to do, what makes me feel accomplished or happy, my time constraints that day, and my goals - which are not all just physical or aesthetic.

This does NOT work for everyone (just like intuitive eating doesn't work for everyone. No one particular way of eating works for everyone). In fact, women I help daily actually really THRIVE on having structure- a calendar to follow, with workouts & food guidelines laid out. No need for analyzing & decisions, & they get amazing results just the same . It's a matter of personal preference (...but experience & knowledge is a key factor because not everyone knows how to design, or how to perform, their own effective workouts). So I ask again..

What's YOUR preference ?

Socks … show … or no-show… ??

Socks ... show ... or no-show... ??

I'm REALLY NOT picky about certain things but for some reason SUPER DUPER picky about no-show socks. I don't like them to show.. AT ALL.. I'm pretty sure that's why "no show" was created. But all the socks labeled "no show" DO show on me, or they fall down.

The pair on the left is a "boys no-show" that Target used to sell & I bought them for my son & discovered they were PERFECT for ME..but they discontinued them years ago. I still have a few & I treat them like expensive jewelry

One time Chalene & Bret's dog ate one & then threw it up. They threw the sock away & I was like "oh no no noit's fine!"

I've tried the Lululemon socks that have sticky on them ..didn't stick for me.

Chalene once found a pair & sent them to me, but I can't find them ..I'm sure they're hanging out with all my hair ties & phone chargers somewhere

Busy Busy!

Busy busy today!! But I fit everything in as best I could! I have SO much more freedom-of-schedule now that I coach full time but I still struggle with time management, some days more than others. I still sometimes struggle with trying to take on too much! How about you?

No Regrets

Wasn't in the mood to do it but more-so wasn't in the mood to regret NOT doing it
