Opps!… Forgot to Post!

Hey ya’ll! It seems like I have so much going on that I have been neglecting my blog. That’s no bueno in my eyes! Trying to get on track with back to school and working from home has presented its set of challenges, but what remains consistent is my passion to exercise.

I was recently received a question from my cousin about how do us “gym people” get motivated to workout in this heat? My answer was simple… just get up and do it!

Two-a-days

Hi everyone! Happy Fri-yay to you! We have made it through the week! I have decided to start making my blog posts on Friday because I love gathering my thoughts from the week and sharing them with you.

It seems as these weeks have been flying by, and although I have had a lot of time on my hands to work on my own business, it still is moving pretty quickly. It may be in part to me doing two-a-day workouts! I have been waking up in the morning to exercise a lot lately. It helps me get my day started right, and provides me with more energy throughout the day. Crazy enough, I also find myself working out at night whether it is training one of my clients, dancing, or stretching. It seems like I am always moving!

Now if you know me, you know I love moving! There is something truly powerful in it, but I find myself feeling drained at the end of the day. When I mention two-a-days, I am always reminded of my high school days when I would see my husband (back then boyfriend) out on the football field to workout twice a day! They would be out on the field in all that gear. Each player sweating like their lives depended on it. It is almost borderline child abuse! Lol!

Fast forward to today, now I am doing my own two-a-days, and although my body and mind are reaping the benefits of it, I still need to treat my body correctly. If you are like me, in your “fitness fanatic” phase here are some quick tips to keep you mind and body on the right track and avoid exhaustion.

1. Nourish your body correctly:

If you are going to be picking up the frequency of your workouts, then you have to eat properly. I have began to make smarter decisions about what I am eating in the morning, and especially after I workout. Choose proteins, carbohydrates, and don’t forget water, water, water.

2. Always do a cool down:

You body needs to come down from the labor of love you just put into it. Make sure to flush the lactic acid off your muscles. Do a shake out jog for 2 minutes after your workout, and don’t forget to stretch.

3. Take time to rest:

This is probably the most important tip of them all! Exercise is great, but it is also about taking time to rest and let your muscles rebuild themselves. If you are feeling fatigue, pay attention to that. Listen to your body. 1 or 2 days off is not going to kill you! Take the time to rest and recover.

So there you have it. Tips and advice for two-a-days. Not every day needs to be a two-a-day day as well. If you are working to a goal like me keep up the good work, but don’t forget to be aware of the proper practices to get you through! I hope this helps someone today.

Be well you guys.

Get Back on the Horse

Hi Everyone and HAPPY FRI-YAY to all of you! Quick question… what do you do when you fall off your exercise regiment? Do you get right back on it? Do you wait till next week to get back on track? Do you give up altogether? I wanna know.

Over the years I have witness people who are extremely motivated and ready to start a workout plan on Monday. They have their gym clothes in hand and shoes in their bag ready to sprint to the nearest gym after a long day of work. I have also witness the same people struggling to even decide to exercise on Wednesday or Thursday. Their spark has went away, and they are just trying survive the rest of the week let alone exercise. Then in true pattern form they drag themselves to the gym on Saturday out of guilt of not working out since Wednesday, maybe even Monday. What is this lack of dedication? How do you get back on track?

For myself I feel some sort of way when I do not engage in some sort of physical activity 3 consecutive days. I feel out of balance. Like something is missing in my life. The motivation for me would be making myself feel better, but that is not always the case with everyone else. I feel like there is a need for one on one attention to help people with their health and fitness goals. Maybe not everyday, but definitely mid week or so to help them over the hump. Someone to give them the little push that they need. I understand believe me. Life gets hard and hetic, but I am tired of people making excuses as to why they cannot dedicate some time to work on their health.

I have heard it all. Work, kids, time, lack of motivation, etc, etc, but we spend more time on social media waisting our time than improving ourselves. I don’t mean to come off as “Debbie Downer”, but I challenge you today to make a change for the better. Maybe you are just starting out, or maybe you have fallen off your workout schedule. Whatever the case may be I am here to let you know that it is ok. Don’t wait till Motivational Monday, start first thing tomorrow. Yes! On a Saturday. Make a commitment to exercise at least 30 minutes for 3 or 4 days this week. I am here cheering you on! I want the best for you!… and I know you can do it! It is never to late to get back on the horse!

Be well you guys.

Live. Love. Well & Fit.

Fit For Thought

Personal control is belief that one’s own internal resources allow one to control a situation. People who have a high level of self control approach challenging situations with the confidence and motivation to change their unhealthy behaviors. The battle begins in the mind. Whether you do or do not do something highly depends on whether you believe that you can do so. πŸŒΏπŸ’–πŸ’ͺ🏽#livelovewellandfit #iamwellandfit #friday #flexfriday #fitfriday #fitmom #fitness #health #exercise #wellness #wellandfitcoaching #fitforthought

They say laughter is the best medicine for a reason!… and they also say that misery loves company. I am so avid on not feeding into the misery. Humor is one of my top strengths so I use it often to create a space full of laughter for those that may be looking for a pity party. No DEBBIE DOWNERS over here! So do me a favor tonight and LAUGH. Watch a movie or stand up comedy special and laugh till you cry. Have some fun!
