Whining officially over. I always tell the Fit Campers to suck it up and that's what I was gonna do! It's go time. Summer is coming and I am not going to miss this boat so starting this January, come hell or high water my ass was going to get to the gym. Every. Damn. Day. Tired? Don't care. Got work to do? Don't care. I am a happier person when I do, and regardless the laundry will pile up any way so SCREW IT!
So I focused on several things that I wanted. Strength and stamina (body composition changes was the preferred choice though, but more the cherry on top). So what does this time-short girl to do? Lift and Run. Enter Mr. Front Squats, Mr. Back Squats, Mr. Lunges, Mrs. Deadlifts, Miss Overhead Squats and Mrs. Power Cleans. Now don't get me wrong I still did all my push, pulls, presses, rotary work and core stability challenges, however it was the lower body stuff that was helping this girl get some curves back...and fast! And to point out I am far from "done" (whatever that is or means) I just like feeling like I am "in it" again. It appears that, for me, my Olympic/Power lifts coupled with running sprint intervals was my ticket to RIIIIIIIIDE (yes, i might be singing that as I type it).
In closing, my point is DO YOU! Whatever that is, that makes you feel good, that makes you feel like you are actually getting somewhere and DO IT - and do it daily. Because regardless, there will always be things on your to-do list, so stop making yourself one of them Life is too short to be anything but happy. I have no clue what the scale says currently because I don't believe in it, it's a feeling kind of thing and currently right now....I FEEL GREAT! K xoxo
