Exciting News!


Happy Wednesday!! I Hope you are all having a great week so far. We are officially more then halfway! (Knowing its 10pm on Wednesday!)

Workout: GPP fitness, Body Pump.

I have been having a little pain in my hip and foot since my long run on Saturday, so I have been taking it easy this week to avoid further injury. During the workout at GPP today it felt better and I was able to jump. I spent a little time on the foam roller afterward and stretched—(definitely something I need to do more often!) I decided that teaching Body Attack later probably wouldn’t be to smart because I can still feel a little pain lingering so I was able to find a sub for that and just rolled with BP.

When you have an injury or you are recovering from a surgery or pregnancy, the key is to really listen to your body. Be smart and back off when needed. Being smart and tuning in to your body needs is crucial in being able to achieve your goals and if you push something to fast you can end up injuring yourself and making your recovery time even longer! I have learned this the hard way before…



Dinner tonight was quick and easy! Mainly, because Brent made it.Smile He is quite the chef in the kitchen!
