Changing It Up


Prior to about four weeks ago I was feeling stagnant with my workouts and meal plan. I couldn’t really put my finger on it, but changing it up was the best thing I could have done!

So… four weeks ago I went back to my pre-Todd workouts. OH. MY. I think my body was in shock that first week! It was a confirmation to me of how the body gets accustomed to a routine. Even though I had been changing my workouts weekly, my body got used to the schedule, thus the stagnant feelings. This change of plans has been great for me. I feel like things have just “opened” up, not only physically, but mentally as well. Change is GOOD!

Many of you know I am no longer working with Todd. I guess you could say we had irreconcilable differences. However, you will NEVER hear me say a negative word about Todd as a trainer. He is a fantastic trainer! He knows bodybuilding. I feel very fortunate to have been his student for as long as I was. Thank you, Todd.


Oh The Drama

Yesterday I woke up to lets say.. DRAMA. Now, drama is soooo NOT my thing. I try to avoid it at all costs. Drama is generally over something petty and false. This particular situation was no exception. It’s funny how we get things in our heads and they become distorted and blown WAY out of proportion. And in all reality what we thought, was really NOT the case at all!

Later in the afternoon I received my daily horoscope in my inbox, I don’t put much stock in astrology, but I had to laugh as I read it yesterday because it was so fitting for the day:

Several years ago, I was dealing with some petty drama and the advice I was given was this: “Grow Up!” It was the best advice I have ever received! And today that is the same advice I will give to the Drama Lord.. Grow up! It wasn’t personal, it was business. Remember, I am just a Mama Bear trying to take care of her Cubs!
