Hiiiiii! Happy Monday! Today is an exciting day because it’s the last day I coach on a Monday morning. I’ve coached the Monday morning classes for over 6 years but I’ve decided to cut back in coaching to concentrate more on my business and more on you guys! And that also means I get to sleep in now…probaby til 6 since that’s when Jackson wakes up, but that’s way better than 5! Excited to work on more things and expand on more goals!
Speaking of goals, I recently started up at Orange Theory with the goal and intention of not getting bored and I’m LOVING it! I did OTF while on book tour but didn’t do it again for a year. Now I have a membership and I’m trying to alternate between CrossFit, Fit (HIIT style classes) and OTF. So far, it’s exactly what my body needed. I get my strength with CrossFit, I get different style moves with Fit, and I get lots of running with OTF. What I love about OTF is I get a little bit of a competitive bug with having the heart rate monitor breakdown on the board throughout the entire workout. I’ll see how many splat points people have or how many calories they have burned and I find my self chasing after them or trying to beat them. I’m not sure how accurate the heart rate monitors are, but I know I’m doing something right because I am COMPLETELY drenched in sweat when I leave OTF and always nice and sore! And they always have upbeat trainers and music in the classes, so it’s never boring.
So far, my legs feel a little leaner since I’m not lifting heavy every single day and not squatting quite as much as we do at CrossFit. Something else I’m trying out is the FasciaBlaster! A reader recommended it for cellulite and for muscle recovery so I just recently got it and I’ve used it 3 times on my legs. At this point, they are just super bruised and I see no difference personally, but I’ll be interested to see how many legs feel, how they recover, and how they look in the next month. I’ll be keeping you updated on my podcast, so make sure to listen there!
