I fell off the plan yesterday but so what…

“Personal success is never static.  It usually comes in small steps leading to other small steps that lead to broader achievement”  W. Roberts

I love this quote above because it’s so true.  Sometimes people get caught up in the fact that their goal is so big and zealous that it seems impossible so sometimes they get ‘paralysis by analysis’ and do nothing. But if they just did something, no matter how small or insignificant, that points them in the direction of their goal they would soon be achieving amazing results.  You just have to take it one day at a time, one little small success at a time. So the message this week is “Do Something!” 

Cardiovascular conditioning: With the longer days, this week I am suggesting you incorporate a cardio-split workout as often as you can.  This means that you workout or are active twice in one day.  So you could, for example, get up in the morning and head to the gym for an indoor cycling class and then later in the evening, go for a walk, bike ride or take a yoga class.  Try to take advantage of the burst of energy many people experience in the spring!

Love Yourself Fitness & Training program – Week 6

March 21, 2011

“Do not be afraid to demand great things of yourself.  Powers which you never dreamed you possessed will leap to your assistance…” O. Marden

Cardiovascular conditioning:   This week make a commitment to be more active in your life.  The International Journal of Obesity released a stat that estimates we expend approximately 800 calories less per day than we did a few decades ago based on our sedentary lifestyles.  So commit to taking the stairs, walking or cycling to do errands or parking a few blocks from your destination. Take advantage of the lighter evenings and head out for a bike ride or walk after dinner.  Just move your body more throughout the day and you won’t have to spend hours at the gym!

Dear clients, family and friends,

In today’s post we focus on a workout that you can do when you don’t have a ton of time.  Which if you are anything like me, that is often!  But just remember this – a lack of time is NEVER an excuse.  You just gotta prioritize your time and get it done!
