Never taking my health for granted again. I won’t be hitting any of my weights or even attempting the kind of cardio that I do until Monday so I can rest & heal & love on my body a bit more. What a rough month in my fitness world. Shoulder pain then down from being sick for two weeks, literally. I feel like such a SLOTH and I’m not used to that feeling. But it is forcing me to take a deeper appreciation for the ability I do have to move my body, exercise and lead an active healthy lifestyle. Sedentary is not who I am. I’m looking forward to clean eats, shopping at Whole Foods, and getting my body back into movement. Patience is not really my strong suit so I guess this was another little life lesson speed bump on my road to optimal health.
Give yourself grace and make sure to listen to your body through your ups and downs. I’m bad about pushing when I shouldn’t so maybe we can both try to be better together about that if you are like me. :)
Back to Basics. Going back to square one of BBG 1.0 with my best friends and sis in law . #bbgweek1 legs done
. . .
My best friends and I are 24 weeks away from our Machu Picchu hike in June so we decided we need all the cardio exercise we can get to build stamina for all the intense hikes and climbing we're gonna be doing in Peru. It'll be a nice change of pace as we start the new year (early but) right!! BBG is also the perfect schedule for me with the mix of 3 days of strength training and 3 days cardio by the time I start teaching row classes too . I still plan to include the weight based exercises I learned from MBB during strength training days cause I've never felt as strong as I ever did when I did @corporate_sneakers' program! If you're looking for muscle building and the perfect next challenge from BBG, I still highly recommend #MyBestBody!!
All in all, it doesn't matter what program you're doing, if you're even following a program at all. What matters is you do what will make you feel strong and confident .
Go for weights, go for cardio, go for yoga.
It's your body - you just have to decide to take care of it #mondaymotivation
