Truth

{TRUTH TIME}

I get that I can only provide people with possible solutions to better their health and to be there for when THEY are ready to commit. I can’t do the work for them, only they know if now is the RIGHT time.

For those of you who are ready, and I mean SERIOUSLY ready to make 2014 your BEST year, keep reading.

I have made the CHOICE to set high goals this next year. I have big dreams and honestly, I’m tired of them being dreams. I’m going to turn them into MY reality. Here are a couple of my goals:

1) Marry my love in June 2014
2) Lose 50 pounds in 2014…Like I said I have BIG goals.
3) Have my personal training certification completed by the end of April 2014
4) Be a Turbo Kick instructor by the end of January 2014
5) Become a Diamond coach in my fitness business in 2014

and last but not least…..Make myself available to others daily, even more so than in the past to help THEM achieve their goals!

WHY? Because I know that it can be done! If you are determined, dedicated and true to what you REALLY want out of life then LET’S DO THIS! I don’t know about you but >>>This girl<<<< is tired of going through the motions of daily life. I want to have the life that I know I’m capable of having and by setting goals and daily to-do lists to help me get there…I know that I WILL!

So, now it’s your turn…..are you going to make resolutions on January 1 and then forget them before February even comes around OR are you going to join me in making the CHOICE to be a better you, work HARD, and achieve greatness?

The CHOICE is yours….

What is Healthy?

Ugh…the word healthy has so many meanings.  Unfortunately many people look at the word healthy as a never achievable thing.  Why?  Because we are taught from society that being healthy means being a certain number on the scale.  That’s right the SCALE…..I personally hate that word.  We let the scale define us, control our mood, and make us feel like failures.  Do me a favor…..GET RID OF THE SCALE!  I don’t care if you have someone hide it or you toss it in the garbage, just get rid of it.  I know, I know, some of you will say “I can’t do that, how will I know if I’m losing weight?”.  Come on people, wake up!!  You will know that you are losing weight when your clothes get bigger, you have more energy, you can do more activities, and your fat turns into fab.  If you are a numbers person and need some time of tracking then use measurements.  Measure your chest, waist, hips, thighs, calves, and biceps and track these numbers on a monthly basis.  No matter if you are losing weight or gaining muscle those measurements are going to go down.

Notice I said if you are gaining “muscle” then those numbers will go down.  What happens when you gain muscle and you weigh yourself?  You GAIN weight!!  Why?  Because muscle weighs more than fat.  We all know this but when we see that number on the scale go up we freak out (myself included) and we forget about all of the hard work we have been putting into our workouts and nutrition and can only focus on that damn number.  So again, get rid of the scale!

Being healthy means feeling good about yourself, loving the way you look, not living a stressful life.  It’s also means not smoking, drinking excessively, lowering that cholesterol and so much more.  Don’t let the number on the scale dictate your healthfulness and influence how you feel about yourself.

I’m interested on your views of the scale.  Are you like me or are you totally fine with with the scale tells you.  Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.

5K Series – Week 1

Week one is over and it was a frustrating week.  I stuck to my eating which was GREAT but to be honest running makes me mad LOL.  Of course my shins and ankles are KILLING me afterwards every single time it was a run day.  The cardio aspect of running was good.  I wasn’t tired, felt energetic and almost to the point that I felt like I needed to do something else because my lungs weren’t getting a workout.  I didn’t push myself though because I wanted to stay on track with my schedule and be able to provide you with the proper results.

Week 1 schedule was suppose to be:

Week 1 Schedule

 

 

 

BUT….ended up to be:

Week 1 Schedule Actual

 

 

 

Day 1 my lungs were fine while running however outer ankles were hurting so I had to stop to stretch them often.

Day 2 I crossed trained and did Turbo Fire 60 and felt great afterwards.  The nice thing was that it didn’t bother my shins or ankles so it gave them a nice rest.

Day 3 I went back to running and got frustrated.  It took me until mile 2 to feel ‘ok’ with my shins and ankles.  Decided a trip to the running store was needed.

Day 4 I walked during my lunch break at work however did nothing in the evening because my legs were killing!

Day 5 and 6 I took those days off.  My legs were still really sore and I was afraid to push it too much because I didn’t want to do more harm than good.

Day 7 was a strength day so I did ChaLEAN Extreme in the morning.

So this is what I learned from this past week.  New shoes were needed so I went to the running store yesterday and they evaluated the landing of my feet while running.  The findings….when I land I tilt my ankle inward which puts strain on the outside of my ankle and also causes shin splints.  I ended up getting a pair of Nike Zoom Structure Radom Pics 004which turned out to also be Nike+ shoes, so I was a happy girl.   The benefits of the Nike Zoom Structure shoe is it features multiple pronation-control benefits and a snug, comfortable fit .  While in the store I jogged across the showroom and actually didn’t feel sharp pains from my ankle to knees that I have been experiencing.  I will be testing them out today on my run and will let you know the results.

 

This weeks schedule is:
