So i know its been a few days but i have decided to be a bit more relaxed this weekend we have so much going onnust like everyone else, food, family,party, etc eveyrone needs a time out now and then . I was sore after fridays workout well my arms were cause like i said i wanted to increase the arm workout because my leg is still bit messed up. I did that fo sho!!!! i walked on hollywood boardwalk saturday trying to make it feel like home . I love it . Its a mini south beach I hope evryone is having a safe weekend . Make smart choices!
I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of moms at with our local MOPs group (Moms of Preschoolers) about nutrition and exercise. I can only hope they got as much out of the program as I did. It was a rainy day outside, but you would never have known that by the cheery smiles and supportive chatter amongst all the women I met that morning and evening. I was expecting to teach them a bit about proper nutrition and lead them in a mini-Mommy Recess class, but instead I was the one learning from each of them.
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...
