Confessions of a REAL Life Coach struggling...
Holy Cow!!!! The Pandora setting for 'Shakira' ROCKS!!
The truth is, my body hit a (large) brick wall on Sunday/Monday. ...yes, even with my energy boosting Mochatonix in my morning protein shake! :/
Came home from a long day at sectionals with my kiddo and my body just wanted to give out. The sleepy time, she came. I felt beat down! Took a 4 hr nap... Got up, saw that my eldest had bought pizza for lunch/dinner... (Thanked The Lord above) and got back to bed by 9:30/10pm! O_o
Monday I felt very little difference. I felt like I was dragging my soul behind me ( very far behind me ) all day long. So, yes... I napped again for a couple of hours.
...the human body is a marvelous thing. It will flick you off in a heart beat if you don't respect it appropriately! o_O
Needless to say, no work really got done, no dishes or laundry or (well, I did prep a clean meal for my beautiful crew and got out to see my pops at the home. And took my kiddo into the chiropractor)
But still, didn't have 'my' kind of productive day. A first work out in months was supposed to have gone down and THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. :(
Thankfully, the dawn of a new day occurred and Pandora exists.
...I did not CrossFit or get out for a run.
I simply washed my dishes, danced my butt off for THREE songs broke for two (got my laundry load switched by running up and down the staircase to grab more cloths a couple of times as I caught my breath) danced/exercised for THREE more kick a** songs and I succeeded at elevating my heart rate TWICE for 10mins at a time!!!
I GOT MY WORK OUT IN!!! BOOM!!
LONG story short:
Listen to your body.
Get adequate rest.
Make your workout your own.
THAT'S how 'real' people beat the everyday realistic struggle of getting it done. (You are NOT alone)
