Wow what a week this has been and high-fives cause it’s Friday! I just want to thank everyone for their support, help, and comments this past week on the new She Rocks Fitness site. I’m beyond excited for this next chapter in my life and it feels so good to be following my dreams. It’s not easy, and there are going to be lots of bumps in the road, but that’s all part of the learning and growing process, and I’m ready for it. I’m also ready for all the new and old clients whose lives I will change, the people I will meet, and where She Rocks Fitness will go. On that note, let’s just go for it!
This was a week about listening! The next couple of months are going to be hectic, so it’s important that you take care of your health, listen to your body, stay focused on your fitness goals, and breathe. First tip of the holiday season: Write out your workout schedule and meal plan for the week, on Sunday! This will help you stay accountable, cut back on preparing meals, and leave you to focus on other weekly chores. Here’s how I listened this week:
The beginning of the week started off with very energized and motivated clients. Towards the end of the week, the energy had significantly changed and everyone was POOPED, including myself. Not sure if it was the change in temperature, the rainy weather, or the stress of the holidays right around the corner, but everyone was struggling. So I listened to my client’s bodies! I made sure that they spent extra time stretching and allowed them to do some restorative yoga poses that would help them relax, breathe, and find their balance. Mission accomplished.
It’s all about EGGS. For the past two weeks, instead of having my “heaping” tablespoon of PB for an afternoon snack, I’ve tried a hard boiled egg and an apple to change it up and just cut back on my PB consumption, because I go through a lot of it. I enjoy this snack. It keeps me full and provides a lot of nutrients. I’ve also realized that I’ve had 4 meatless days this week and it wasn’t even planned. Just like my workouts, I just listened to my body and ate what I was craving.
It was a yoga kind of week! As you can see by my workout schedule, I did a LOT of yoga. Yoga does wonders for me both physically and mentally. I also hurt my lower back while doing deadlifts this week and yoga helped me stretch and listen to my body.. I may have not advanced much in my poses, but yoga was more about healing this week and it worked.
