FITNESS TRACKER GIFT?

MAKE SURE IT IS PERSONAL

Remaining motivated while in pain

It's been nearly 4 weeks since I've had knee surgery and it's been a challenge staying motivated. I've found that staying focused on not losing too much strength is my trigger to motivation. I know my cardiovascular health will diminish somewhat. I keep a realistic outlook on what I can accomplish day to day and keep my mind on the cumulative results. Everyday there's a mini milestone. I find that it's a great opportunity for exercising creative techniques.

Exercise Not Your Favorite Activity?

Recently I was talking to a client who is in his 50s and has only been working out for a few months. I’ve only talked with him a few times yet those few times he has mentioned that he doesn’t enjoy exercise yet understand the benefits.  

I'm a Runner!

After last Saturday’s complete shit show of a run, I knew I had some problem solving to do. I suspected it was my shoes. I am a cheap ass and since my 2 half marathons I wore Asics,  I decided the brightest thing to do was to go to the outlet and get some new ones!

11 miles

A few weeks ago, I cried tears of frustration while I was running. Every Saturday is my long run for the week in my training plan for the NYC marathon. Last Saturday was 11 miles, and I was having a shitty run. I started out feeling awesome, but somewhere around mile 5 ½, I started feeling pain. Right below my knees my legs ached, and the last three toes on my left foot were cramping so bad they started to feel like they were on fire! “You are not in pain, you are just imagining shit” I told myself.

I won! Now what?!

How I found inspiration from Bobbi Brown........

  How I found inspiration from Bobbi Brown…. As I was driving home from the gym one morning, as always, I had the radio on. Much to my husband’s chagrin, I am a serial station changer…..yep, I’m one of those people who constantly changes the station until I find something that I want to listen to……for a while at least…..then it’s on to the next station!
