This week’s first workout was…how do I say this politely? A total @#% kicker! I’ll admit, at the beginning of the 8am class, I was on the verge of backing out. I had already coached early, had alot of work to get done, & just was being a bit lazy. BUT one of my goals this BRIK was to do 2-a-days at least 3x a week. So I sucked it up & jumped in with my team…& I was so very happy I did
Today’s workout really showed what Kaia is about:a team. I typically become very self-involved in workouts, & many Kaia girls have commented on my “scary” concentrated workout face, but that was impossible today! You HAD to pay attention to your partner, because she was your life saver! My partner, Cassidy, (& I know her name very well now, since I breathlessly told her to hurry up several times was amazing. She pushed through skier abs, partial squat thrusts, arch-ups, & much more because she knew I was waiting on her to finish. And vice-versa. Its easy to get wrapped up in yourself, but today’s workout forced us to focus on our partners & those around us. There was lots of yelling, good jobs, whooping & FUN. Because that’s what Kaia is all about…great women, amazing workouts, & having FUN while sweating your booty off.
Fit Tip: Exercise before you eat. Instead of heading to the kitchen when you get home, set aside a half hour to get an extra workout in. Not only will it help you let off steam, but you’ll be less likely to overdo it with extra food at dinnertime.
Nutrition Tip: Don’t skip meals. Skipping meals can cause low blood sugar, which means you’ll end up feeling weak and lightheaded. It can also lead to overeating and food cravings. Statistics show that people who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight than people who eat in the morning. Never skipping a meal will help you stabilize blood sugar and control your appetite.
K.A.T. Tip:Be the girls with the most double days this BRIK. Evening walks and stationary exercises in front of the t.v. count (as long as you’re getting your cardio in during every commercial). Don’t forget to record your DD’s at the gym.
