motivated monday

long time no blog post. it’s been a crazy last couple of weeks!

my days have looked essentially like this:

somewhere between 4:00-5:00 a.m. everyday: wake up
5:00-7:30 am: teach class or bootcamp
8:00 am: eat breakfast, drink coffee, relax
10:00 am: class or work
afternoons: lift, run, or do homework
nights: teach class, work, or class
in bed by 10 pm if i’m lucky

every single day. i got sick last week and i think it was a combination of lack of sleep & stress. i need to learn to take a breather every once in a while. easier said than done.

anyway last week i started training with a personal trainer at my gym who is the strength and conditioning coach for our young athletes. he is an olympic lifter and he’s going to teach me and a few other girls how to properly do these lifts and essentially develop a program for us to follow with him.
Wednesday we did Squats, Deadlifts, Hang Pulls, and Shoulder Press. For core training he had us do a Plank with a 45lb plate on our back. I WAS SHAKING.
Friday we did Squats, Deadlifts, Hang Pulls, and Bench Press.

This week we get to learn a hang clean which will eventually lead up to learning a power clean. 🙂
i’m ready to be strong.


i need to work on my eating this week. i ate a lot of crap this weekend and i just felt lethargic which didn’t help in trying to get over being sick. time for clean eating. no excuses.
i started this morning off with healthy apple cinnamon pancakes. they were delish.


the recipe was from chocolatedcoveredkatie. check out her dessert recipes. they are great alternatives to the real deal.
