With each week of workouts, I’m definitely thankful for the time I have TO workout! Fitting it in is the first challenge, and then getting them done seems to be the second!
Last week I talked about how I’ve gotten back to more strength training now that I won’t be half marathon training for a while. That also means that I’m doing workouts that I haven’t done in a LONG time or haven’t done at all!
My traps and shoulders and back and legs … and well, everything haha…are feeling soreness they haven’t felt before. It seems unfamiliar when I first attempt some of these exercises – I’m a newbie all over again in some ways! I know I have to practice what I preach and go full speed ahead with new beginnings and new experiences and one of them is being back in the gym!
I find myself so much more comfortable at home … I love getting my workout done and over with in the comfort of my own home. With teaching and everything going on, I felt it was smartest to join the gym again (where hubby and I met) at work so that I can split up workouts and not sell myself short of what I want to fit in each day for MY workouts. I’m all about #wycwyc – What you can, when you can – and also believe in making no excuses for not getting my workouts in or fitness being a focus.
I’ve gotten back into Food Tracking also! My Fit Squad and I are using My Fitness Pal to cheer each other on with workouts as well as see how we’re stacking up with daily meals.
I ended up discovering what I thought to be true – I WASN’T EATING ENOUGH! Teaching, working, working out, going 5 million miles per hour at the moment, I need to be sure to fuel properly and set that example! So as uncomfortable as it is to take time to a) track food, I’m now also now b) eating more throughout the day. I have to remember that the more GOOD FOOD I have, the better it’ll fuel me and not to get back into that mindset of being afraid to eat more especially if I tell others to do the same!
On another fun new note, I was able to test out the new LG Tone Pro wireless bluetooth headphone set through Verizon Wireless (Purple, to benefit Domestic Violence awareness month in October!)

I know that my little ears are pretty picky with headphones for cardio and running when I’m super sweaty, but I was excited to try these out for strength training!
After some charging time and set up with my iPhone 5s (6 is on it’s way in October YAY) I was ready to go and am in love with these new headphones! When I’m sitting at my desk working or strength training, I can be quite a ways away from my phone and not have wires getting in the way!
Two thumbs up for wireless headphones whilst boogying!
