Move It Monday – Every Sweat Counts!

Anyone who says you can’t work up a serious sweat in 15 minutes has obviously never worked out with Chris Downing!

Stop assuming what ISN’T possible and start thinking about what IS, and then put yourself into action and DO IT!

For the record, doubting and naysaying burns approximately 0 calories 😉

Move It Monday – LIIFT4 Round 2!

Back at it! Round 2 began today!

“But Kara, I thought you were taking it a little easier?!”

And I am… I won’t be running as much, and I’m not focusing on increasing my weights as much as I am focusing on my nutrition, and mastering FORM…

But I still need to workout, I still need to move my body. That’s stress relief for me and now is definitely NOT the time to eliminate a much needed source of that!

Move It Monday – Be Willing To Adapt!

I’m a planner.

I learned long ago that if I leave my fitness/wellness up to chance, things are not gonna go as smoothly as they could.

This includes having an idea of what workouts I’ll be doing for the week, if I’m not in the middle of a program.

I had planned to focus on running more in the next couple of weeks while I wait for Sara to finish LIIFT 4, because the air is finally freakin’ running-friendly… and I’d like to {finally} finish the 175 mile challenge.

Buuuuuut oopsie, I forgot to take into account that it’s not light out until later now, and I personally don’t enjoy running when it’s pitch black out (lack of a major sense makes that a little unnerving, for me) and since by the time it’s light out I’m done and showering, we have to plan B it, so that’s what I did!

Gotta have some degree of flexibility and willingness to adapt, or life will be a lot more of a challenge for ya!

• ps, Sara and I are doing another round of LIIFT 4 starting September 24 if you’d like to join us! •

 

Move It Monday!

Whew, good thing today’s workout (a prelude to the next program I am taking on!) was only 20 minutes, because after drinking allllll the drinks and feasting on allllll the foods this past weekend, dragging myself outta bed to move was no easy feat!

But it’s done, and THAT is what matters!

I struggle like anyone else sometimes, but I don’t let my excuses serve as roadblocks – I use them as stepping stones and keep it moving!

Who’s moving today? Whatcha doing?

Interested in trying the program that’s being released to VIP’s a week from today? Let’s chat and get you early access so we can crush it together!

Move It Monday – Never Miss a Monday!

I finally got home at 12:45 am… do YOU think I’m getting a workout in today?

If you know me, you know I simply don’t embrace EXCUSES, I embrace SOLUTIONS. And if you have been paying attention, you also probably know that I don’t skip many days, but I DEFINITELY don’t skip Mondays… something about starting the week off with EXCUSES instead of ENDORPHINS doesn’t vibe with me, you know? 😉

So an EXCUSE might be “I’m tired, one skip day won’t hurt” but a SOLUTION would be “sleep in a bit, and just workout a little later than usual!”

One of these gets me to my goals and makes my wellness a priority, and one of them doesn’t – I know which one I’m WORTHY of, so I think I know which one I’ll choose!

(For those wondering: the motivation to actually do it is at 0, but sometimes you gotta rise above that and do it anyways!)
