I haven’t realized how crazy my life has been until this weekend when I got sick and was forced to actually relax and sit down for more than 10 seconds. Then I got the strange feeling that I don’t like relaxing anymore. Hah how ironic. It has been a month now since I moved to New York City and my semi-active life has turned into a full blown active lifestyle! It’s amazing yet exhausting all at the same time. Nevertheless, I have been able to keep up with my exercise, plus all of the walking around the city. A mentor at work asked how my blog was coming along and I felt slightly embarrassed to say that I was too tired to take the time to post my workouts after doing them, but then I realized that this blog is one of my main motivations to keep strong. So here I am…finally back!
Hello! It has been quite some time since I have posted anything. Sometimes life just gets in the way and there is never a moment for downtime. These past few months have been hectic and demanding, not always giving me the time I want to workout. Nevertheless, I am back and motivated to post new workouts, recipes and motivational pictures! One thing to always remember is that fitness is a lifestyle!
I just finished this arm video by Tracy Anderson for the second day in a row and let me tell you the second day wasn’t any easier! Hopefully after I do this video every day for 2 weeks I will successfully make it through without the burn.
This motivational quote perfectly describes how I have been feeling regarding my Achille’s injury. As of the past week I am on order from my doctor not to do any cardio and limit walking to reduce further injury. This has been one of the hardest setbacks for me to deal with. No one seems to understand how much an injury can change your mood and cause you to be upset. I am trying my hardest to stay positive and push through this tough time in order to get better. For now lifting weights and my physical therapy stretches will have to suffice. Happy Holidays everyone! This is the toughest time of year regarding diet and exercise. Don’t let the holiday spirit stop you, use it to motivate you to fit into that New Year’s Eve dress or just to feel great about yourself. XOXO
