This week has been a week for me to be accountable and believe me it was hard but it is time for me to be honest with myself. I believe i am not working hard enough or I need to change up my turbo routine as my body is getting used to the current round the instructors are doing.
MY goals this week are:
1. drink my water! i am guilty of not drinking enough water! i want to drink 96oz a day to ensure my metabolism does not get messed up and I do not work out for no reason
2. To hit the gym more this week and to push harder in my turbo classes as I do not believe i am working hard enough and to hit the piyo class, zumba or hot hula to get in some different stuff to change it up
3. not to eat fast food at all unless its subway and if i eat subway i have to get one of the healthier options for a sub
4. no skipping meals! I tend to not eat breakfast because i am in a hurry to get my son to school on time and then I come back from taking him to school to play with the twins and clean the mess from breakfast.
Have you ever been injured when you start a new exercise routine? Well if you have not, you are very lucky.
I have been injured when I decide to take the bull by the horns and get certified in Turbo Kick and Hip Hop Hustle and not only did I get certified to teach the classes but I did two 8 hr trainings, two days in a row. Yea I was nuts! So the day after the two intense days of training I decided to hit up Chalene Johnson's Hustle class and we did this move we call the matrix and I felt my quad have this sharp pain and I knew I pulled it! So for two weeks I could not go to the gym and boy did it make me feel so lazy not able to go to my classes and not even take the kids anywhere because my leg hurt so bad. I would soak my muscle in epsom salt and use ben gay which reaks like senior citizens, I was told by a trainer to get tiger balm because the smell was not as strong and it worked better than ben gay. UMMMM it reaks worse but it worked for me. After I felt better, I was so happy to change my bedding to get the reak out!
