Day 11: Killing it!

Woo hoo! Day 11 and feeling AMAZING!

Apologies for slacking on updates, but being healthy is time consuming.

If I’m not at work, I’m at the gym with my personal trainer (aka slavedriver) three times at week. If I’m not with her, she assigns me workouts to do for the remaining three days. If I’m not working out, I’m meal prepping. If I’m not meal prepping, I am sleeping.¬†Doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for anything else!

I had an insanely busy/horrible week at work, and had zero desire to meet my trainer at 7 p.m. on a Friday night for a workout. To be quite honest, I wanted to order a pizza, crack open a bottle of wine and veg on my couch.

Instead, I had an insane hour of circuit training. My legs were shaking, I was dripping in sweat and was grunting like a cavewoman by the end of it.

But as I walked home, the rain gently drizzling, with the Toronto skyline coming into view, I realized that the stress had melted away.

As out of control other areas of my life may feel right now, having this clear focus is keeping me calm and centered.

These three months may seem like a sacrifice right now, but I know they will be life changing.

Day 6 – Exercise as stress relief.

Besides working out for a smokin’ hot bod, working out is also a natural stress reliever.

I am a moody person. I have really high highs and really crappy lows. Exercise has become an invaluable way to help control my stress and anxiety.

Instead of reaching for that deep dish extra cheesy pizza, I’ve been throwing on my running shoes and pounding the pavement. Or getting my sweat on with a #bbg workout. I ALWAYS feel amazing after. Everything seems more manageable. My life makes sense again.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! I’m ready and determined to make this week a good one. My meals are all prepped, my gym bag is packed and I’ve got my game face on!

Day 4 – Happy 2016!

Happy 2016! Hope everyone had a blast last night. I know I certainly did!

I know some people think resolutions are cheesy, but I believe in the power of writing down your goals and sharing them with others. I think the new year provides everyone with another opportunity for a fresh start! As a smart man once said:

A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.

So here are my five health/fitness goals for 2016. I have a few more personal/career ones, but these are the ones I would like to focus on the most. I have been unhappy with my body and my overall well-being for so long. This is the year I am going to stop complaining, but my big girl (yoga) pants on, and do something about it!

I will be staying accountable and providing regular updates on these through my blog and Instagram account.

What are your 2016 resolutions? Let’s keep each other accountable!
