Thunder and lightening are entertaining my eyes and ears as I write tonight. I have been taking it easy and am healing well. Resting my leg has helped so much, of course!!!! I had family here the whole weekend so it made it easier to not workout and actually sit down now and then. I enjoyed my time but man is it tiring even if you aren't doing that much except entertaining and running around. Today I went for a walk after the rain, it was so pretty out. last day of rest and now back to the grind tomorrow.
So last night 3 classes in a row, wow, my hip flexor hurts , apparently I overdid it, thats alright. Im only resting today, no biggie, tomorrow 2 classes back to back, yes this is teaching , but i do the entire class. plus, count and talk and motivate. I love it.... lunch was a good turkey meatloaf, rice and tomatoes. yummy!. so far I am seeing a little more tightness in the abs, it takes a while , i want to be back to 130 and ill be good. .
So , last night went on a fabulous walk slash talk with my girl, Sunny, i loved it 1 hour power walk, o yaaaaa!!!!!!!!today I started my day with seeing from the balcony into the intercoastal, a shark, yes i said shark, stingray or manaray, and 3 manatees. Seriously!!!!!!The best wake up ever. ate my protein pancakes, taught an amazing sculpting class, and yes I was sore from yesterdays class, ouch. BTW i teach 3 classes tomorrow, yep i might be nuts but day 7 , rockin and rollin.
so pushing it with 7 workouts last week was trully hard, this week i think I have the same, i am really tired and my muscles are exausted. i have to eat a bit more carbs this week to keep up with all this muscle abuse.This week I am going to make cauliflower mashed potatoes, from my nutritionist freind Sunny, and also I will try one new recipe out of my fitness mags, I will let you know which one when i decide.Today will be another rest day, because I need it badly. By tomorrow , Zumba should be a breeze. Have a great Cinco de Mayo, enjoy those cocktails lightly.
CRAZY!!!So yesterday was day 3 , I taught 2 sculptinmg classes back to back, 15 min drive to the 2nd. that was my break,I was sweating in the car but got there with a smile on my face to 42 people in class,I had 5 men in there, what a nice surprise. They pushed through just like my fit females. Im sure there crying today.... :) I am feeling a bit sore, but not too bad. I had a great dinner out last night but well needed and well deserved. 2 clients today so not alot for my saturday. I am going to enjoy this weather with a bike ride,because its gorgeous out.
had a good breakfast, proteit oatmeal pancakes, with one egg mixed and 1/2 cup milk, topped it with peanut butter, 2 strawberries and 5 blackberries. so yummy!!!!!!! then i made it through spin class but holy moly the sweat keeps dripping, Do you know the more muscle you have the more fat you burn after. hmmmm you say , Its true. we keep burning calories even when we finish our workout. Thats a goal you can try. Push your self a bit more...
1.With only cardio you will go from a big pear to a smaller pear but you will still be a pear. Weights will help change your body shape not to mention all the health benefits.
2.Weight bearing exercises are great to help against and prevent osteoporosis. It also helps your nervous system stay alert and active.
ok so im on the computer of course diddle dalying around. I need to get up so i can workout my over exausted, non sleeping body. Anyone know what that feels like? I am going to move now and put some good sound on and get moving. I hope I can push though an hour of circuit training. I am on a mission to loose about 6 lbs before I am in a bikini everyday. wish me luck on the start of my new journey.
1. Lifting weights means you can eat more without getting fat.
2. It’s higher intensity than most cardio so raises your metabolism. This causes quicker (and longer term) fat loss.
3. Lifting weights will not make you big….cupcakes will make you big
4. lift like a man …look like a goddess
