After my marathon everyone kept asking, "what's your next big challenge!?" - and I didn't have an answer. I hardly got to savour the victory of crossing the finish line before the worry of "now what" rushes through my mind. If you didn't already know, my mind works at lightning speed!🤣 A full marathon? A tough mudder? Some other physically gruelling event?
I injured my foot during training and definitely aggravated it on race day, and it's not getting better. So the idea of another "challenge" seemed pretty far out, at least for now.
I planned on doing a few of our heavy lifting programs for the next month, to challenge my muscles and increase my strength. But the universe had other plans.
I decided to listen to my body and remove all impact from my workouts. No jumping, no hopping, no weights. JUST my body weight, reduced intensity and zero impact.
BUT HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO GET FIT DOING THAT?!?!? 👉🏼And THAT was exactly how my next challenge popped into my mind! My new challenge is to PROVE TO MYSELF that you DO NOT need to jump, lift weights, or go completely crazy to get results. I am going to TRUST and BELIEVE that Pilates and yoga (and balanced nutrition) can build muscle, lengthen and strengthen, and give me amazing results!
Sometimes it's tough to tone it down, to dial back. But I am excited to complete this program, all 8 weeks of it, and show people that they too can achieve results with nothing more than the body they were given!❤️ So whether you are new to fitness, have an injury, or need a break from your intense routine - this program was made for YOU! If you want to be my workout buddy and crush this program alongside me - reach out!😘 I would love to have you as my accountability partner!🙌🏼🦄 #FULLHEARTSTRONG
