I’m back

19 May

Hello world! It’s been forever since I’ve posted last. I’ve just been so busy with family, friends, exercise, a new business and just every day life. Going forward my intention is to write in my blog twice a week.

So let me catch you all up to speed on what has been going on in my life with health and fitness. I’m currently taking online classes through NCCPT to get my CPT. I’m so very excited about this. I’ve had a passion for helping people get healthy for a few years now. I know exactly what it feels like to be in that place where you don’t know where to start, it’s so overwhelming. You think you’ll always be that way. You have no energy and you feel like a lost cause. I can’t wait to help people reach their goals!

I’ve also started a new business that focuses on helping people reach their goals in weight loss. I am an It Works Distributor with It Works! Global. This is an amazing company. They are most known for Ultimate Body Applicator. And while I do love the Applicator. I absolutely love their Greens Alkalizing drink so much more. I feel everyone should be on this product to alkalize their system. You can find more information at http://www.fitnsexywraps.com. I’ll touch more on this company in a future post.

So over the last two weeks, I’ve completed the Spartan Military Sprint Race with a few friends. This race consisted of 5 miles and 28 obstacles and for every failed obstacle you had to complete 30 burpees. Folks, let me tell you this was not an easy race. We had no clue what we were going up against either because they did not post a course map. I failed 3 obstacles of the 28 therefore I had to complete 90 burpees. Have I told you how I loathe burpees. We don’t have a great history together.   Our time for the entire race as a team was 2 hours and 23 minutes. It was challenging, and there were definitely moments when my mind was thinking ‘just give in’. But I had more in me…. I pushed through and I kept on going. I had a great team that inspired me to keep going as well. The best feeling was finishing! I can’t wait to do it again next year. I’ve attached a few photos from the race below:

Yesterday, I competed in the Alpha Games at Lifetime Fitness. I’ve never done anything like this but I thought hey why not? I’ll just go for it and see where I place, what I do good in and what I need to work on. I’ve been doing Crossfit for 8 months but this workout really wrecked me. There were so many times during this that I felt like puking. Lifetime was prepared for us pukers too, there were puke buckets next to most stations. Below I’ve included the actual workout and a few photos of my workout. I’ve realized I need to focus on thrusters and rowing. I thought my endurance was good but yesterday was a huge slap in the face. This is an area I need to focus on. So this is how I did; 55 deadlifts and 38 thrusters and for the endurance portion I completed it in 19:27. I have no clue how anyone could finish in the allotted 15 minutes. I’ve heard there has been only one person from our club that completed it in the 15 minute time limit.  It was tough, it was challenging, it was torture… but again it was awesome. I pushed my body to a place I didn’t think it could go. I’m glad I did it!

In both the competition and race, my mind wanted to give up, I know my body wasn’t ready to. It reminds me of this quote that I absolutely love. Remember that when your faced with a challenge this week. Push your body outside it’s comfort zone. You’ll be surprised at what you will accomplish! Have a fantastic week, world!
