Hey guys! It's been a whirlwind of a week but I'm back with some life updates, some insight into my challenges, and a great workout for you! Let's start off with the updates, shall we?
Life has been...busy. But good! I've been going from one client's home to another client's home to the gym and home (home). I'm grateful for work although I'm pushing it a bit this week. Tomorrow, for example, I train an at-home client, head to the gym and have 7 clients in.a.row (no break...yikes!) and then have 3 clients after work. Friday is similar, and to be honest I'm a little nervous and exhausted just thinking about it! And I'm officially part of the team at Fifth Avenue Club with my new gear that came in! Check it out:
I'm happy in my new, logo-ed shirts and not stressing about my jam-packed schedule because...
We're going to CABO SAN LUCAS! Mikey and I are pumped...he's in Vancouver at the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology where he's giving 4 different presentations and is ready for a break to say the least! Mikey's parents gave us their time share (such a blessing and gift!) and we transferred it to Cabo San Lucas where we're meeting my mom, dad, and brother. I can't wait to spend some time with the Chalmers (my maiden name)! So after two full days of work I will be relaxing on the beach, exploring the cliffs, and soaking in every moment with my family and Mikey! #stoked
In other updates, I helped out another friend on vacation, Lindsay, with a quick guest post and workout yesterday on her blog! I was so thankful to share some thoughts and a great workout you can take on the road with you - a traveling towel workout! Head over and check it out (video and workout included!).
And now, on with the CARDIO KILLER!
Try to complete as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes (and if you don't have a way to time yourself, do the workout with reps: 15 - 20 KB swings, 8 - 10 box jumps, and 50 - 100 jumps depending on your fitness level).
Let me know if you give the workout a shot! I ended up doing this short circuit for 20 minutes and loved it and was breathing hard - here's my post-workout #PROOF:
While the workouts have been going great, I've had a hard time eating clean the past few weeks. It's not tough for me to get my workouts in, but my challenge comes when I get home after a long day, don't have any healthy food prepped, and am hungry - so I snack. It's tough for me to stay on track and that's been one of my biggest challenges recently. For some people it's the workouts, for me it's the food! ...what about you?
That and finding time to read my Bible - it's something I value so much and can noticeably see (and feel!) what a difference in makes in my day, and yet I've been on the go and haven't stopped to spend time with Jesus. I don't want to use it as an excuse, but I am looking forward to time away so I can rest, focus, and enjoy time with God. ...can anyone else relate?
And there you have it. A few workouts, a few updates, and some exciting things to look forward to! What's going on with you guys? Any good workouts to share, challenges of your own, or things you're looking forward to? Lay it on me! Have a tangy, thankful and terriffic Thursday!
Live well & be well friends,
