Workout Wednesday…and today DID NOT go as planned. I woke up this morning with a headache, I didn’t sleep well at all, so I slept in an extra 2 hours. Needless to say that I didn’t get in my quiet time or workout with Val like we normally do. Fortunately my business allows me to set my own hours and my super awesome husband got the kids up, fed and out the door for school. I got out of bed when he left and got in my devotional time and checked into my groups only to find a not so favorable comment/slap in the face. The weather is crappy, I was pissy, the dog escaped and got lost for 20 minutes and honestly the LAST thing I wanted to do was workout.
Well, life is about choices. So I made the choice to read 10 pages of inspiration from my book, turn on some training to help me become a better leader and pop in Max 30 and workout without the volume. After all, exercise boost your endorphins and endorphins a make you happy right? Lol. I did Tabata Power and this clip is from the Tricep series and its a killer. I like to use an elevated surface to help hold my form and challenge myself a bit more. Give it a try! My arms and legs are jello. I lost it today EARLY at 6:37 on split squats. My legs are dying. But I finished the workout. And now I feel better.
I had tea at a cut coffee shop with a friend and talked about the business. It is great to reminisce about where I started and why and to see how far we have come as a family and as a team and myself as a leader. The possibilities still excite me as much as they did on my first day as a coach. I still have the same anxieties and fears but have just learned how to move past those and have faith and to most importantly…believe in myself and those around me. This business has been such a blessing for my family and has brought us from rock bottom working the daily grind, pounding pavement, living paycheck to paycheck (which most times still wasn’t enough) to have more than we could ever imagine or need while keeping focused on our priorities and giving the glory to God. We were able to DONATE $20,000 this year. DONATE!! that is so humbling and exciting and just drives me to want to give even more.
Sorry for the rant and emotional roller coaster but I just have so much passion and emotion for what I do and it is so much bigger than just sharing my workouts my family and food tips. It’s a bigger picture that has me envisioning the future for those around me and the possibilities that THEIR futures Hold with a little love and guidance. Thank you all for supporting me, following me, and trusting in me to help guide you down your path. Love you guys!
