Goooooood morning, beautiful! I’ve been sharing a little about my experience with positive self talk recently so I’m starting your Monday off with some positive affirmation for you. You are lovely, you work hard and you deserve happiness. I know it all may sound pretty corny, but don’t forget to say those things to yourself, especially if you’re feeling a little down or off on this Monday morning. It’s amazing what you can do for yourself if you just say a few kind words!
Anywho, I’ve been sharing a lot about my changes to workouts lately and I feel like I’ve been all over the place. I’m really trying to find a new rhythm and it’s been challenging. A few months back, I started adding glute workouts to my routine but pretty quickly I noticed my body changing in ways I didn’t want. And I also noticed some signs that I could be putting myself back into adrenal fatigue from too much exercise. I would absolutely love a bigger and rounder bum, but I’m not looking for larger legs and that’s hard to figure out on my own, without a professional trainer. I also want to continue doing CrossFit weekly, but I can’t keep up with the number of CrossFit workouts I did in the past while I am working on fixing some of the scar tissue from my competitive years.
So let’s wrap back around. Two weeks ago I started adding in CorePower classes since they offer the first week free. After trying out a couple classes, I fell in love with their YogaSculpt class and decided I wanted to get a membership. BUT their memberships are pretty expensive (well, they are pretty comparable to most gyms in Denver) and who knows when I may change my mind again. LUCKILY Denver offers something called ClassPass. And ClassPass is rad because they offer A TON of different gyms. So not only can you try out CorePower classes, but they also offer pilates, boxing, barre, gymnastics, HIIT classes and a ton of others, all for way less than a membership to just one gym! Plus they offer a week free of classes before you start your membership up. So this week is my free week of ClassPass and I’ll be doing yoga and pilates, then I’ll be doing some CrossFit classes and butt workouts on my own.
As I inch closer to 30 this month, I feel like I’m learning to listen closer to my body and accept the changes that are happening and continue to roll with the punches. That may mean more CrossFit at times then less at other times. But no matter what, I feel find a new workout that suits me in that moment.
Becoming sedentary is not an option. And it shouldn’t be for you either. If you are having trouble figuring out what workout is best for you and your body and the changes you are experiencing, don’t give up. Continue to try new things, get uncomfortable, and push yourself in new ways. Keep moving and keep trying. Life is full of changes and you deserve to enjoy that ride!
