Friday-Active Rest/Sat.-Back

I started Friday with almost an hour of cardio downstairs. After work I did 20 minutes on the Stairmill & 20 more min. of Incline Treadmill work. It was my active rest day and I enjoyed it! Except it's weird being at the gym and not busting out a hard lifting session........But rest is essential! :)
Today I did 1/2 hour of cardio before breakfast, and I head to the gym this afternoon for a back workout & more cardio!
That's my update! :)

GNO! Hollaaaahh

Girls Night Out @ TURBO last night! I usually have one guy, sometimes two, who join us for Turbokick on Wednesday night. Not last night, it was ladies only and we rocked it out. I really needed it to, because up until class, I was having a blahhhhhh day. I was sore, my cardio didn't seem up to par, arms were just mediocre..........Turbo redeemed me :)
Morning cardio today was wonderful. I do 2 minutes forward/one minute backwards, and up the incline 2% after those three minutes..........until I hit peak incline. Helllloooo, legs. Then I finished with almost a mile run. As much as my legs could carry me. :)
Off to work, 5 appointments, then Shoulders: Teach Core-Central/hi-lo: Gymnastics tonight. BUSY DAY!
Gotta go make eggs......yummmy
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just finished my morning cardio. It wasn't as intense as I'd like it to be, that's for sure. My whole body is SORE. I know legs always do me in, but holding 25 lbs. plates while doing lunges & step-ups got my upper body, too. So now it's stretching, stretching, stretching!
I teach Turbo tonight (YEA! It's been 2 weeks!) so I'll get nice and warmed up beforehand. Also, I'll do a quick round of Bi's/Tri's too.
Ohh, my new diet it very simple & I'm enjoying it so far!!!!!!
Almost 10 weeks to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Wednesday~

Start the Week off Right: WITH LEGS!!!!

I have a love hate relationship with leg work. I love it. But Damn if it isn't hard!!!! Geez. If my legs aren't shakin like leaves after, I haven't done my job. DOMS is expected. :)
So, as many of you know, or have figured out, I'm HUGE into Quotes. There is an AWESOME website that I recommend you go to each morning before you do anything else. It changes everyday, and takes 10 seconds to read, so, instead of posting each one here *because they're all Post worthy* I figured I'd just share the website.

Here's todays: which rings SOOOO true in my efforts! The website is at the bottom.
The other side of effort~~~

On the other side of effort is accomplishment. On the other side of effort is the achievement of your goal.

From where you now stand, the effort may look like something you would rather avoid. The challenges may appear to be imposing and even insurmountable.

Think for a moment, though, about what things will look like from the other side of the effort, when it is finished. Consider how it will be once you've made the effort and moved through the challenges.

Looking back on the effort, you'll be thankful you did it. Looking back on the challenges, you'll know how much stronger and more capable they made you.

Looking back on the whole experience, you'll realize that your commitment and persistence took you somewhere special. They took you precisely where you had chosen to go.

The effort you now face will make significant demands of you, and yet the rewards are many. Choose now to start working your way to the other side.
