After a busy morning of bringing my cat Solo to the vet, I decided to workout. I started off with my HIIT workout, then walked my pup Rex, did weights with my mom and then finished with Yoga.

I was debating whether or not I wanted to workout because I was feeling less than motivated. To be honest, whenever I feel like this, I try to find any excuse not to work out. Today, I pushed through that. I pushed through the stress and the feeling of not wanting to do anything.I’m glad I did. Doing the workouts, then winding down with the walk and Yoga, I had more energy and felt happier. My mind feels clear and I feel more productive.

If you start to feel that kind of negative energy, do something to occupy your mind. Try working out, reading a book or basking in the some. Do something to fill your body with more positive energy.

What are some of the things you do to clear your mind and bring positive energy into your day?


I have done thirteen days out of fourteen. It’s low impact, quick and effective.

For me, this is a nice Yoga practice after a workout or simply just because. Stretch those muscles and relax.

Train Your Heart Out

January 19th 2020

I’m finally able to return to the gym after being sick for about two weeks. Finally got settled into my school and checked out the gym with one of the chicks in my class today. It helps that she is totally into the gym and knows almost every single work out. Here was one of the workouts that we did today:

  • 1/2 mile run on the treadmill or 30 min of alternate cardio.
  • American kettlebell swings x25
  • Alternating jump lunges x20
  • Alternating dumbbell snatch x15
  • Dumbbell press right x5
  • Dumbbell press left x5
  • Chest to bar pull-ups x5
  • Set the timer for 20 minutes and see how many sets you can get through!

For the kettlebells, and dumbbells use whatever weight you feel comfortable with. This is about staying positive and motivated through your workout. Listen to your body and see how the weights affect you and your workout. Sweat a little, enjoy the pain a little and breathe. This is about you achieving your goals. Make sure to bring water and rest when you need to!
