Remember when last week I made the statement that I was taking back my life and creating an equal work/life balance?
Well, I did it.
The gym and I have made amends. It kicked my ass – I was sore – and it was great.
That gym and I? We are becoming BFF’s again.
If you remember, Monday morning I got my butt up before 5am and ran to the gym, lifted and ran back home.
The rest of my week in fitness looked a little like this:
4:23am – Alarm
5:00am – Upper weights before class
5:30am – Taught the new Round 60 TurboKick
4:45pm – Taught again! TurboKick Round 60
4:35am – Alarm
4:55am – 1.25 mile run to the Gym – Lower Weights – 1.25 Mile run back home
4:23am – Alarm
5am – Lunges, Situps
5:30am – Taught Insanity
4:45pm – Taught a second Insanity
4:45am – Alarm
5am – Slow run 1.25 mile run to the gym – That hill kicked my bootay. Upper weights – 1.25 mile run home.
8am – Subbed for a gal at the Y. Offered Insanity to a class of 14!
My nutrition was slightly better last week. Sugar is still a huge deal for me. And Diet Soda. They are a real life struggle. It’s a deep love the three of us have.
The weekend didn’t go so well in the nutrition area. A lot of booze, pizza, burgers, cookies… you get the picture. It’s summer. I have a lot of fun. One step at a time.
Goals This Week:
- Make the gym every morning M-F
- Add an early Saturday morning distance run of at least 5 miles. (which is a LOFTY goal considering Friday is my B-day and we have plans that involve liquor that evening)
- Add in a few more glasses of water each day
- Cut back on the sugar Monday – Thursday. What about Friday, you ask?
It’s my birthday!
I eat frosting on my birthday.
It is straight up ILLEGAL not to.
Cheers to staying on track, keeping the momentum going and accomplishing new goals.
Wow, you’re amazing! Working out in the mornings & double classes!? I need some of your motivation! Where do you teach at? I just found out that the Maple Y is going to have Insanity in the evenings starting in September and i can’t wait!
Wow, you are amazing! I need some of your motivation some days.. working out at the crack of down & double classes! I just found out that the Maple Y is going to offer Insanity in the evenings & I can’t wait!
That’s awesome! You will LOVE it. It’s my favorite format to teach, hands-down. I will have to find out who is teaching it over there. Can always use a sub on hand. 🙂 I teach at the Council Bluffs YMCA. And, trust me when I say that it isn’t always easy getting up at the crack of dawn. This morning I fought with the voices in my head telling me to go back to sleep. I won.
