Every athlete will find a time when their body tells... no, DEMANDS that they back off on their training. If the athlete ignores their body's insistence this is when injury will rear its ugly head. For me, this happened about two weeks ago. I completed my second Tough Mudder, and this one was even more awesome and exciting than my last one. Something about that race just makes me so proud to be a Mudder.
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.
Get in a workout whenever or where ever you are! Seriously, there are times when I am folding laundry and I start to feel a small ball of frustration because I know I have something else to get done right after...So I see how long I can hold a squat or I do calf raises while folding. If I can't workout (in a grocery store, any place of worship) then I envision it. The more I envision it the more likely I am going to do it.

My husband has been traveling a lot lately. When he's gone I'm a single (married), working mother of 3 small, active little girls. Time is in short supply (which is why I haven't posted a blog in awhile!). There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get done what needs to get done.
Ever wonder why you workout and don't notice a change in weight? There are many reasons for this. First of all, your body composition - what your body is made of: fat, muscle, bone, water, organs - is the main thing you should be considering.· Eating plays a huge role in weight loss or weight gain no matter how much you workout, so keeping track of what you eat is pivotal.
This week I want you to alternate sets between Exercise 1 & 2, then 3 & 4, and then 5 & 6. Rather than doing the exercises superset style however, rest between every set. Note that when alternating between Exercises 3 & 4 you’ll finish your fourth set on Exercise 3 last, before moving on to exercises 5 & 6.
