Hello readers! I apologize that I have not been able to write in quite some time - but I am BACK. For this post at least. :)
Since it has been awhile, I am running this deal again!
Things going on in my life right now:
I bought pink Nike shoes on ‘sale’ since my other shoes stunk and I could not wait any longer for my customized Nike ID shoes to be delivered. Yes, my other Nike and Mizuno shoes were so bad my clients could smell them. Therefore, I now have two new Nikes:
My customized ones look like a bag of skittles exploded and say ‘LIFT’ ‘HEAVY’ on the tongues. Yes, backwards. My fail - I’ll stand cross legged.
Love my shoes - except - I wish I would have made the yellow tops pink.
I lift 5-6 times a week on my lunch break (since I am a trainer - I live in a club - no complaints there). Before I jump into throwing weights around - I warm up for 10 minutes. This warm up is usually 2 minutes at the bottom of Zone 1, 2 minutes at the top of 1, 2 minutes at the bottom of 2, 2 minutes at the top of 2, 1-2 minutes at the bottom of 3 and coming back down for a minute or two. What is this called? Metabolic coaching of my body - science. It usually happens on the treadmill.
Once Garmin gets on the train and fixes the issue with Bluetooth and Connect - you will be able to see my workouts on Garmin Connect after I upload.
I am also adding cardio (which I have neglected the past few months). When I say cardio, most of the time - around 40 minutes - is spent in my fat burning heart rate zones so I can shed the few pounds I want to and be more efficient at burning fat. What am I talking about? Read this.
My week usually looks something like:
- Back (and maybe cardio)
- Chest + Abs (and maybe cardio)
- Legs (and some glutes)
- Bis, Tris, Abs + CARDIO
- Deadlifts, Calves, Glutes
- Delts + Abs + CARDIO
My lifting is based upon my knowledge, progression, goals, and the fact that sometimes I have a lifting partner that challenges me. Since I am weak where she is strong, and she is strong where I am weak - we push each other. Find this person - it will improve your results.
I am also taking my vitamins/supplements which include:
- AM/PM Multivitamins (3 with breakfast/3 in evening)
- Omega-3 Fish Oil (2 with breakfast, 2 with dinner)
- AdrenoMend (2 with breakfast/2 in evening)
- 6,000 IUs of Vitamin D
- Whey Protein (depending on my workout that day and if I need my food supplemented)
- Dynamic Greens (depending on my day)
I am trying to potty train my daughter since she is over 2 years old and I am tired of changing diapers. I’ll keep you posted on this - don’t worry. Let’s just say she peed down her leg this afternoon.
I still flex in bathroom mirrors:
Looking for a quick snack? Try almond butter (1-2 tbsp) on top of a rice cake (whole wheat/grain) with a drizzle of honey. YUM.
I have gotten several emails, comments, comments and questions from you all and I promise I will answer them as soon as I can. My next post is probably going to be a Q&A so I can do so more efficiently!
In the meantime, let me know if you have any more questions! For those that have asked - no, I do not want to be a Beachbody Coach.
I update my Like page on Facebook more often lately - so you can follow it here. Happy weekend to you all!
