I threw together this little workout- it’s similar to a bootcamp I taught the other day actually! I love tabatas because they are quick and sweaty!

Fitness Friday

Fitness Friday! I have chosen to link up with Jill and lots of others to share our Fitness & Health Posts!

Fitness Friday is all about sharing inspiration and passion for fitness and health. Sharing little successes and progress and ‘meeting’ new people! You know..social media meeting 😉

Today I’d like to share with you a little workout I made to help my 10 day Fitness & Meal Challenge group. This group was a ton of fun to lead and I loved giving them different workouts to do. This is a particular workout they did in the beginning and then again at the end to see if they could improve their time!

You should be able to complete this for 2 sets, with the Jumping Jacks & Butt kicks in between to give you the cardio aspect of the workout. This isn’t a long workout by any means so it’s just a nice workout when you are pressed for time, or just need a quick strength circuit after cardio.

I hope you enjoy it- if you try it let me know!

Also, 5 more days to sign up for my boot camp that begins on March 2nd!

Have a great Friday, and a wonderful weekend! :-)

Last Things Thursday

Some things I’m loving this week!

New Workout Move

As I’m creating new workout moves for clients– I love this one! This is an awesome move! It’s called a Tricep Dip & Kick. With one leg in the air, dip down. A few of these and your arms will be burning!

Being Goofy and Flexing!

I’m proud to see my muscles growing with my new workout program. It has me lifting heavy and I really like it!

Favorite Treat:

This delicious brownie batter donut from Dunkin! Well worth it!

New Mani:
I got to try a Jamberry nail ans chose to do an accent nail.  I really like how it turned out! I see some more of these in my future.

  • Alright- what’s new in your life, or what are you loving this week?

Thoughtful Thursday

As I endeavor on my journey as a Fitness Professional, I’ve really enjoyed going through the process of planning and trying out my own workouts. It’s all been a trial and error process. I tend to make a workout, then try it out on my own to see how it goes. It’s a fun way to do it, because I can then decide different modifications for specific moves or workouts. It’s been fun seeing what all my training has been able to let me do! I am very happy with what I’ve been able to put together and I think others would enjoy it as well.

Planning bootcamps!

Not only workout wise, I even decided to write up a small packet of meal planning, and what works for me as far as eating goes. I figured, why not try to help someone else with things that I found helpful? I’m not master chef or nutrition expert- but I know that things work for me and they just might work for someone else.

Working on the meal plan!

How To: Start Your Week in a Positive Way

image

This quote really resonates with me this week.  As I am keeping myself motivated and on the right track to my own goals, I have to keep that doubt out of my mind. You might know at times this can be a difficult thing. I’m going to share how I am keeping myself on track this year.

Untitled (10)

1. Wake up with goals in mind.

Everyday before getting out of bed I’ve been doing my best to make notes of my goals for the week. Generally on Sundays I’ve been making my longterm week goals and then the during the week, every morning, I’ve been making my smaller goals that I want to complete that day.

2. Do not get overwhelmed. 

 Yep- Staying organized is the best way to do this. I’m about to be that person, but, I am really busy during the week. Generally, I have a really tight schedule, so at times when I have my above goals in mind I can let that overwhelming frustration of little time get the best of me. I try to write & schedule everything in my planner so I know what needs to be done. When I plan ahead I’m way less likely to say, oh well, and forge about it.

3. Self-doubt is a thing of the past

Like the quote above, I’m over doubting anything I can do, because I have the right tools to set myself up for success. Preparing myself for the weeks and days has been helping me stay organized. I can only imagine what this mindset can help me do this year!

  • How do you set yourself up for success during the week?
