Still trying to get back into running on a regular basis. I would much rather run outside than inside but with daily temperatures over 100 degrees I don't find myself doing that at all. And running the treadmill...I just dread it. I worked out at home yesterday rather than hitting the gym because I didn't want to run on the treadmill. I want to love running again and starting small I thought would help. But the thought of getting into the over hot car to get to the gym only to sweat it out didn't appeal to me yesterday.
Are you looking for an energy boost to start your day...? GREEN SMOOTHIES are the way to go! For those who do & do not have a juicer (yet -lol) put your blender to work making it a part of your daily routine!
What a Crazy and exciting week I have had. I started finals week by completing a Sprint Triathalon. I didn't finish first, but I did finish. It was an INCREDIBLE experience. Then I began Finals week. So exhausting. I completed my finals and was able to go to my daughters last day of elementary school. I was so glad I could spend that special day with her. Then on Thursday she was able to share a special day with me. My husband and children came to my Graduation from Clark College on Thursday night. As graduations are, it was very long but the speakers were Fantastic.
1) Workout clothes. With early morning cardio, training clients, then afternoon weights and cardio I can easily go through 3 sets of sports bras, shorts and tanks per day. That’s a lot of laundry! So right now I get very excited when I see my favorite stuff on sale….2) Mrs. Dash- I said this in an earlier blog, but I can’t get enough of her salt free seasonings. Lemon pepper for my fish, tomato basil and oregano for my chicken, there is even a citrus lime one! Good stuff.

I am adamant about making choices that will create health and wellbeing instead of illness and disease and believe that what we eat, drink, and do WILL make a difference. I can't begin to count the many times I've been told, "well, we are all going to die from something so it really doesn't matter what I eat or drink or if I exercise....everyone dies." True, death does come to everyone; but to some extent, I believe we have some responsibility as to when and how that happens.
Do you have a bucket list? You know, a list of things you want to complete during your lifetime.
A friend was just posting on Facebook about having completed one of his bucket list items. He was celebrating a birthday and was updating his bucket list. It was inspiring to see all the things he had achieved and to learn about the things he still wanted to accomplish.
HEALTH & FITNESS ARTICLESWorkout Shoes - Shoes for Strength Training
I've always worked out in just a plain pair of tennis shoes. Rarely to I see or even think that using special shoes would make any difference at all. However, I began to think of better shoe support when I started doing heavy squats. This prompted me to do a little research in specific type shoes for working out that would give me better ankle support and put my feet in a more level position for squats and leg presses.
Fitness Tip: Business Travel Training - When traveling out of town, book a hotel with a gym. It's the next best thing to training at home. And if there's no gym, make your own! In lieu of a stair stepper, try the stairs! In lieu of a treadmill, try the sidewalk. In strange areas always check with the front desk about the safety of the surrounding area, particularly at night.
