Got my post-holiday workout in. Guess what. Like most of us, I ate quite a few waffles yesterday. There were mimosas and cinnamon rolls, too. I didn’t exercise, unless you count walking back to the kitchen. 😂 And I don’t care. Those were delicious waffles. One day doesn’t make or break you. When your healthy habits are set, you can afford off-kilter days. Rarely and reasonably, of course, but it’s all good. Today, I was not trying to work off the cinnamon roll(s). I was working to get stronger, to stay healthy, to maintain my routine. And that’s what I’ll do tomorrow, too. @f45_training_summerlin#balancetrainer#postholidayworkout#balancedlifestyle
Nothing like a good stretch after an intense workout!
Doubled up today and incorporated some cardio into my scheduled leg day session. I can just FEEL when I need to stimulate the ol’ lymphatic system and get some serious circulating going. Any type of bouncing or rebounding in your exercise is a great way to assist in that area.
Who’s back at “the gym” with me today? 😁
Saturday morning everyone is still sleeping and I’m ready to get this work out in. The shirt says it all, I’m not feeling it. Pero cuando salieron los tamales this past holiday season, one after the other. No self control when it comes to tamales. So here I go again. Hope you had a great productive week and enjoy your weekend!
Kids are now back to school...
Holidays are over... .
Reality is kicking in...
But I have a question 👇🏼
Anyone else’s workout gear feel like it shrunk? Damn dryer 🙄🤭
Okay fine, maybe it’s not the dryer 😏I admit I had my fair share of indulging a little too much in cake, cookies and chips over the past few days but damn am I glad to get back to routine with my clients as we get ready to start our next fitness & nutrition change next week because we all need it!!! .. Tell me I’m not the only one! .
STOP overthinking this whole fitness & healthy eating journey and just DO it!! Home workouts and meal plans are available
Let's chat and get you started 🙏
Okay so since I always try to be real & honest with you all...
These pull ups were a struggle!!! I felt so weak compared to usual... I did 5 different grips, 6 reps at each grip, run through all 5 grips twice...by the end my back and bis were shaking 😅 I only filmed 2 different grips but if you have questions, drop a comment below 🤗
While I was in NY my diet was 🙈 some days I over ate, some days I under ate, some days my protein wasn’t high enough and my fats and carbs were super high (all estimates btw, I’m not tracking and I haven’t in months)....BUT it was all worth it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Being back home is always busy and eventful. I don’t feel guilty when my diet is off the charts because I know once I get back, things will get back to normal healthy eating because that’s the lifestyle I choose to live. Splurging here and there doesn’t alter that.
However, it definitely impacts my workouts. I have so much more energy and better workouts with less fatigue when I’m eating healthy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everything in moderation fam 🙌🏻
Thank you @kevincrough for filming and being a dope workout partner! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Does anyone else have trouble getting back into your regular routine after the holidays? I swear it's been so difficult for me to get to the gym and really push myself.
But I'm still going and just kinda hoping the motivation will show up soon.. sometimes just going through the motions is all you can do!🤷♀️
Today I did upper body. I felt super weak, but I went through each exercise 3 times.
💥Tricep dips ×10
💥Side ab with weight ×12 each side (35 lb.)
💥Single arm cable rows ×10 (27.5 lb. each arm)
💥Pull ups ×6 (I do as many as I can without help, then I use the band)
💥Lateral/front raises ×10 (10lb.)
💥Dumbell chest tensions ×10 (7.5 lb.)
💥Plank(no video) 30 sec.
I started adding the weight I use because my sis said I should. Don't think you need to be doing the same weight as me though, control and correct form is much more beneficial to your body than higher weight!
Busting holiday fat is no joke and on top of that, getting yourself motivated enough to bust holiday fat is a task in itself… nearly 10 to 15 days of the season's parties, brunches, dinners and lunches, staying up late, eating anything and everything, drinking and not getting your typical amount of exercise can make one’s body and mind feel a bit off!
As you try to return to working out while keeping your nutrition and sleep in check remembering these few tips should help with the return to routine slowly but surely. -Don’t jump on the scale and analyze the extra calories or the holiday fat. If you change your eating and drinking habits for a week - or two - it’s not going to have a profound impact when you look at the overall picture of your health. We all need times of rest and revelry so do try to remember to carry that feeling with you as you return to your routine. - Good nutrition has great impact on energy levels and this is sure to help with the starting troubles. The sooner you get back to eating right, the better you will feel! - Take it slow, listen to your body, it’s great to jump right in but make small, gradual changes while increasing your workout. Don’t kill yourself, be sure to prevent injuries and take it slow
For instance, start getting back by doing a small circuit of maybe three exercises, 10 reps each ( exercises similar to the ones in the video such as ab controlled leg extensions, or split squats with a low weight or even planks) - Make sure to include exercise in your routine, start with maybe twice a week and slowly get it to five times a week depending on what your routine is. Start small and slowly bringing it up to what it used to be or even better. Getting back to consistency is important and committing to this slowly is the best way - Set reasonable goals and keep at it, small changes over time do add up.
Good luck with getting back to your routine or embracing a routine in the new year!
I hope these tips are helpful, they sure do help me! also swipe to see the videos and remember to always do workouts that you enjoy!
Great sesh with @clarissayounger_ today. 🌞Was such a lovely day, couldnt help but take advantage of it by starting outside with a 12min AMRAP partner workout:
5 tyre flips, 5 burpees.
Then headed indoors to do another 12min AMRAP: 9 x thruster, 9 x burpee over bar.
Closing our session with 20min Ab interval workout with russian twist, butterfly sit up, reverse crunch, knee tucks (using rower seat). Im having so much fun training with friends at the moment.
I used to like training with head phones on and wouldnt really wanna talk to anyone while at the gym but its been great to be social and push each other through it!
Heres to a 2019 filled with new friends and old ones, pushing each other to be the best you can be! 🎉🎉 So if you're lacking motivation, find someone who you can train with and can keep you accountable if that will help get you where you want to be!
Anything is possible this year!
So dream big!! 🙌🙌 #sunny#darwin#workout#outdoors#absworkout#tyreflip#burpee#amrapworkout#friends#training#postholidayworkout#gym#sunnyday#sweatwithme#trainingwithfriends #2019 #dreambig#goals#motivation#getit
These are my POST-HOLIDAY pictures and my PRE-PROGRAM pictures for the beginning of my new 6-week program. .
I have barely worked out these last two weeks due to sickness and letting the holiday season be in control. I did, however, make healthy decisions while still allowing my self to indulge in a glass of wine or a cocktail, but limited my desserts.... BALANCE. And as you can see, these 2 weeks have NOT "ruined" my progress this year. .
I don't have regrets this holiday season about my health, but I am ready to go full in with my new program. I am ready to commit to my nutrition, fitness and mindset for 6 whole weeks (and then some 😉). .
Who wants to jump in with me? .
Who wants to be my accountability partner from a far and support each other to reach our health goals?
Comment below or shoot me a message if you want to team up!
What I want you to see ➡️ how I actually look! And NO, that ain’t a real baby in there... just a food baby🙃
Post-holiday bloat is REAL! I didn’t binge every day. I didn’t skip all my workouts. I only ate “off plan” approx. 3 times (not entire days - just certain meals) and I missed 3 workouts. This is what I’m starting the year with🤷🏻♀️ But I’m also starting the year with a BRAND NEW PROGRAM that is designed for both physical and mental transformation. I think we could ALL benefit from that! In less than 2 weeks we are officially kicking off our 2019 Transformation group, and I am beyond excited & grateful to be able to do this with my team.
In years past, I’d be heading to the gym like everyone else does for the new year. I’d promise myself “this will be the year!” And somewhere along the way, not really even noticing, I’d give up on myself.
Does this sound like you? If so...NOT THIS YEAR! Because this year I have a sure-fire plan that’s going to help you reach your goals. And? You’ll have a fit fam to hold you accountable and support you every step of the way👯♀️ Oh, and you’ll have me too 😉 because just like you girl, I need the same damn thing! So let’s do it together, and make this year OUR YEAR!
I've got a little lazy over the holidays with working out and sleeping in...😴
It was a wonderful break though that I needed but my body has been feeling the need to move again. 🏃
So, 7 o'clock work out this morning! It was hard to get myself out of bed but I feel so much better and am now ready to face the day head on and all the activities we have planned.👊
It is so important to listen to your body and rest when you need it but then to know when to get back at it again so you don't lose complete momentum.
