Leg day again? Yup.
With permission from my trainer, I had to switch it up!
I had a one hour break between work and teaching my fitness classes, so off to the gym I went.
Tomorrow is another crazy bananas day, so tomorrow it's conditioning at home.
Burpees- I will see you at 5:30am!
But today, it felt AMAZING to get my butt under a weighted bar!
I haven't done that since COLLEGE athletics.
It made me think about the drive I had back then. Somehow I lost that drive along the way.
Or maybe I truly just stopped placing the priority on myself.
Being a mom, wife, nurse, and trainer.. it's easy to do.
I'm a GIVER.
But taking this time back for me isn't selfish. It's making me stronger than I ever imagined.
My mood is different.
Normally I am a pretty happy lady. I'm blessed.
But there is something incredibly empowering about setting a goal and having that at the top of my mind each day.
I have a vision of myself on that stage, and that's what makes it easier to wake up early, eat a crap load of chicken breasts, and conquer the dreaded stepper.
Every time I squatted and lunged down with that bar, I had that vision.
And as I added more weight, I just kept telling myself,
"Just rise. Just get back up."
For now, I've got the workouts nailed.
Tonight, after my son goes to bed my husband and I are going to play around with the flexible dieting and meal plans.
One thing I loved about this coaching group is that they DON'T give you a meal plan until the very last month.
Similar to what I do with my coaching clients, they want YOU to learn how to eat right.
I have a set of macro and micro nutrients that I have to follow, but in terms of food, I have to figure it out!
Of course, I have my coach to bounce things off of, but tonight I'm taking a stab at different combinations and foods.
It's pretty exciting to know that in just 4 months, I will know how to eat right without starvation or crazy methods.
We have a few vacations coming up, and my coach said,
"If you want that glass of wine, have it! We will simply adjust in other areas."
UT OH- Does that mean 300 burpees the next day?
Guess I will find out!
But for now...Day 3 of 138 from average working mom to bikini competitor...DONE!
