Life has finally settled down enough for me to relax, take a step back, and think about how things have been going lately. I have gotten back to my routine after vacation, and am starting to get used to the new position at work.
Workouts: I have been getting a little tired of the weightlifting exercises my coach gave me, so I have created my own workout routines to shake it up. I miss CrossFit because I feel like I get a MUCH better workout compared to body specific days, but I will stick with this for now. My upper body is pretty much ready to go, I just need to maintain what I have. The major part of my workouts right now is cardio and plyometrics in order to slim down my legs.
Diet: I am getting better at meal prep, and typically have all of my food cooked on Sunday, so I just need to put it into containers for work during the week. I don’t mind eating the same thing every day, it makes life easier having one less thing to think about. (Like wearing a uniform.)
Overall, I’d say my motivation has been high and I am hopeful that my new workouts will be the spark I need to up my intensity in the gym. I am happy with my progress so far, but sometimes I struggle mentally and compare myself to other women who are farther along than I am. When this happens, I need to take a deep breath and remind myself that I am exactly where I need to be right now. Also, I have a big project I am working on, I am excited to share it with you soon!
Cheers to your health!
