Trip to New Zealand!
Hey friends! I decided to make a separate travel blog to post about my travels. This year was New Zealand. I just got back yesterday so I'm working on each day with lots of pictures but I have to first two days posted about already.
I forgot to write a post that I started Shaun T's new program: Focus T25. I'm currently on week 3 of Alpha Phase (which is Phase 1) and I'm proud to say that I've followed the calendar to a tee. I have never followed a program calendar this long, aside from Bodyrock but that's because those are only 12 minutes.
I find with most program: Turbo Fire, Insanity, etc. that I just can't commit to fitting an hour or more into my day after work. I could do it before work but honestly I don't get as good of a workout in the morning because I'm so not a morning person. I'm tired and sluggish and really just half assing my workout at that point.
I work different shifts varying from starting at 8:00AM to 10:00AM. Tomorrow I happen to start at 10:00AM so that means that I can still sleep in AND do my workout before work :) Tonight was lower focus and tomorrow morning is cardio. I love doing my workout before work because then it's out of the way for the day …
To get an idea of what include on your shopping list, clickHere to view Michi's ladder. It's a great tool and really easy to use to help create a balanced meal plan.
Self magazine is very informative and I like the interviews with the celebs to see a different side of them. My mom has a subscription and hands them down to me. Click Here for some tricks to curb food cravings.
I also found this in Self magazine. It's a great read and very informative. They also have new workouts to try made by trainers and they usually include a meal plan
When is the best time of day to workout? Anytime!
If you're unsure of portion sizes, this chart is very helpful =)
Hey everyone. Life has been absolutely crazy this year. I'm working on my Business Analyst Certification and am doing it online. The course I started in April, I neglected and ended up having to get an extension on. My dad passed away suddenly over the May long weekend from a stroke after 4 days in the hospital. My 2.5 year relationship was on the rocks for months as well and finally ended in June. Luckily I have an amazing support system from my insanely supportive and amazing family and friends. As well as my kitties that provide healing cuddles and love.
I was trying to spend more time outside since it was summer and the summers can be pretty short here in Winnipeg. If it's nice outside I'll opt for a walk rather than my scheduled workout. I'm still trying to do my weights three times a week though. These walks outside have resulted in a tan (even though I use sunscreen) and beautiful pictures of Winnipeg.
