MMB – Routine is Back in the Air!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had an awesome weekend and had the opportunity to get out and move!  Did anyone try the work out posted on last week’s blog?  I’d love to hear how it went for you!  I had a wonderful weekend away with my family enjoying the Arnold area.  It was really good to unplug for a few days before the busyness of school and sports kicks back in! 

Announcements and Reminders:

  1.  Cardio Core on Tuesday at Jen’s Studio:  It’s time for our mid-week work out!  If you’d like to join in class tomorrow, please text or e-mail me.  I have room for one more at 6:55pm, but have a few openings at 5:45pm and 7:35pm.  My cel is 925-699-7725  See you tomorrow night!

Cardio Fusion is CX this Thursday.  This is my last summer hoorah with the boys and we are going to the Beach Boardwalk for the afternoon/evening for their birthdays.  However, if any of you would be interested in a Cardio Fusion class at my home studio, I could offer a small group class at 7:00am?  This would be open for both 30 minute and 60 minute clients.  Please let me know if you have interest and I’d be happy to train you guys on Thursday morning.

Thought for the week:  Routine is Back in the Air!

While there might be some moaning and groaning in your house because your kids have to go back to school, it’s actually a really good thing for everyone.  Summer is both wonderful and awful all at the same time.  Let me explain myself.  Summer is wonderful because there’s a more relaxed pace without the same sense of urgency in the school year.  There’s the opportunity to stay up later, sleep in, hang out with friends more, and eat yummy treats like popsicles, ice cream, and backyard bbq treats!  Here’s the awful part – because we don’t have the same routine with a greater sense of urgency to get things accomplished, we start to slack off on our health and wellness goals.  Tell me I’m wrong?!  I’ve heard from many of you as you’ve come back from vacation say, “Oh gosh Jen, I SO need this work out!”  Well my friends, you are in good company because many of you are experiencing the same feelings. 

The good news is that now that the kids are back in school, you are ALL kind of back in school – if that makes sense.  When the whole family is back in routine and  order, it’s a trickle down effect and everyone benefits from the sense of purpose and urgency that goes into every day.  Before summer, if you used to work out at night or run on the weekends and those things have gone astray, fear not!  It is time to rise up, get your phone calendar out, and plug those fitness appointments back into your life and commitment.  You will find that you are not alone and you’ll feel encouraged reconnecting with fitness friends, who are in the same boat, and want to jump start their fitness and nutrition commitments again! 

Also, please…please..don’t beat yourself up.  If you’ve put on a few pounds and are off track, don’t punish yourself with a bunch of negative.  Today is a new day and you can decide to change at any given moment.  Make today that moment!  Recommit to self care and carving out time for work outs and clean eating.  You want to look and feel your best right?  You need energy to take on all of your responsibilities and projects right?  O.k. then, focus on those things and just DO the work outs!  You’ll feel so much better about yourself and will tap back into that momentum that will catapult you to the next level!  Let’s do this things together friends! 

See you in class soon!
