Putting Your BEST Foot Forward

When It Comes to Getting

Your Exercise On

There are 2 places I cannot go on an empty stomach; the grocery store and the gym! My hunger has me low on energy, cranky and most of all HUNGRY. I do not get a proper workout and then I am putting junk in my grocery cart. It is just SABOTAGE!

I say, “I love a good challenge”, but challenging myself when it comes to working out is completely on another playing field! I repeated the same cardio routine week in and week out. I either went mediocre with strength training or on interval overload! I either went light or heavy with weights. My body learned to adapt to that routine pretty quickly!

I could be on Myth Busters with this myth I kept telling myself! I thought the answer to all my problems was in working my core and ONLY MY CORE. I had mythed myself into believing that once my core was in top shape the rest of my body would follow suit! I had a laugh at myself on that one.

Working It Out

There was two other obstacles to overcome; breathing and posture! As long as I made it through the workout with minimal damage to my person I was doing good. I suffered my fair share of injuries as well as seeing those stars that gave me one heck of a workout headache and a hangover the next day. I truly feel better during my workout when I pay attention to my breathing and my posture!

I just needed to get the lead out of my arse and put my time and energy on exercises that burn more calories! I actually enjoy exercising and now I find my time working out enjoyable. I am so not going to make progress if I treat the gym environment like a giant couch! I have to continue pushing myself and challenging myself to make progress and see results.

The biggest lesson I have learned is to focus on myself when working out! I no longer watch someone else do an exercise and then start doing that same exercise. I have to do what works best for me and my body!

Remember to Keep Mixing It Up and Have FUN When It Comes To Working Out! Remember to Nurture and Nourish You and Your Body!
