HELLO!!!

Hi everyone!  So sorry for the gap in posts.  I needed a weekend of rest and recovery (but I did do my workouts and then some).  I’ve got some fun things in the works that will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Friday was a busy day of seeing doctors (chiro and eye) and getting ready for my trip that I’m on this week.  Saturday I spent the day with my fella being a couch potato except for my workout and cooking an amazing goulash dinner with cauliflower in lieu of potatoes.  Sunday was baking and cooking up things for Tyler for the week and then spending time with our friend and her girls outdoors getting some fresh air.  Good times. And much needed.

As for my workout program and nutrition, I’ve been committed to my workouts and getting them done everyday.  Even Sunday, my rest day, we were outside and did a mini incline of 200 steps that go up at a 40º angle (ouch my legs and lungs).  Food has been on point except I had some dark chocolate over the weekend and my digestion in paying today for it.

Today I drove to Albuquerque, NM and didn’t have the best food options in the car.  They weren’t unhealthy per se, but they were lacking in vital nutrients.  But I did have all my weights and workout equipment in my car and hit up Whole Foods before coming to the airbnb I rented.

I cooked up some nutrient packed stir-fry with tons of veggies for dinner after my workout and will hope that tomorrow brings ease to my digestion.

This blog is kind of all over the place.  Tomorrow will be more structured.  I hope you all had a great Monday.

~until tomorrow

Obsessed – Day 30 – Motivation and Fun Cardio?

Up until a few months ago, I was attempting to build a team actively coaching for BeachBody. Its quite a rewarding job and I really wanted to help people. However, with my travels and my busyness opening a coffeehouse, I found network marketing to be too much of a time consumption for me so I ended my coaching business. That doesn’t mean I don’t still love the programs and do them. The 80 Day program I am currently doing is changing my life!!! And I couldn’t be more enthusiastic. I LOVE motivating people, educating people and praising their progress. I find that talking about this program in my blogs and having them posted on social media has generated some motivation for my friends which has been incredible for my to witness. It took me so long to get to a point in my life where health and nutrition as well as fitness took a high enough level of importance that I find an great level of gratitude for people in my life to find motivation from me. I’m telling you this because I can still help if you’re looking for it. I am still an active coach, I just haven’t been actively working the business.

On another note, my workout today was a brand new cardio workout that was actually super fun. It was hard as hell, don’t let me mislead you, but one of the most fun cardio workouts I recall doing. Everything was different from anything I’d ever done and went by very fast. And I enjoyed that it went quickly. Nutrition was good. Light but good and my digestion is still improving. I’ve added L-glutamine as well as collagen, probiotics and changed my diet to start excluding many of the items that the Specific Carbohydrate Diet “illegal foods” list. Baby steps.

Off to bed now. Until tomorrow!
