Push Jump Workout!

Sorry for the brief post today! My son needed the computer for homework...more later, in the meantime here's tonight's workout...

Pain doesn’t tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue, you will change. Don’t let it stop you from being who you can be. Exhaustion tells you when you ought to stop. You only reach your limit when you can go no further. – Author Unknown

Tonight's Workout!!
Run to Eastside High School and back...every 60 seconds to 10 AIR SQUATS!

For Time:
 200x Push-ups (men 250)
Every minute on the clock you perform 10 x Box Jumps, then continue with your push-ups. The clock keeps running until you are done with all your prescribed pushups!
Three rounds
Jumping over fire at the Warrior Dash!
•Walking lunges, 50m
•Count # of steps, do that many burpees
As you contemplate this lovely workout...attempt to calculate how long you can stretch your legs, we'll be doing the lunges outside, burpees inside!

•Walking lunges - chest up (no leaning forward), and the back knee kisses (not slams into) the ground. Take big steps, but don't sacrifice quality.

Wake Up Workout!

Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
-Frank Herbert

Food is the most widely abused anti-anxiety drug in America, and exercise is the most potent yet underutilized antidepressant.— Bill Phillips

Little Earthquake Workout!

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!.....Rocky Balboa
 What do you say to yourself when you stand in front of the mirror? Do you say positive and encouraging affirmations?  Those little conversations that you have with yourself are so important in establishing a positive self image and outlook. Try to catch yourself when you are alone and think about the way you talk to yourself...the first step is to recognize that there is a problem..try to uncover your triggers for negative self talk. Many repetitions of healthy self talk can begin to influence your core beliefs about your body and dramatically improve body image. Please stop the 'Fat Talk' and replace it with, "I love how my arms got me through those pushups" or "I am so good at running those laps".  If you have people in your life who are critical about your appearance or their own appearance, let them know how you feel about it.
Mastering others is strength;  Mastering yourself is true power - unknown

Here is the Golden Rule...Don’t say anything to yourself that you wouldn’t say to anyone else.

Do you ever start comparing yourself with others?  What do you do to avoid letting that stir up a bunch of negative thoughts? 
Today's Workout!
Sprints...15 sets across the parking lot!
remember the purpose of these is to work AS HARD AS POSSIBLE during the sprint, get your recovery in there as you wait for the next one, this is HIIT Training 101~it is all about speed.
refer to this post on HIIT Training for more information! dumbell swing (or Kettlebell) and one burpee box jump~
Add one rep every minute. . . continue until you cannot keep up with the reps in the minute time frame. You will go for 15 minutes, starting over at 1 when you miss your minute.
advanced option, alternate one leg up at a time...
Score= highest rep count in the one minute time frame!

we will finish with core and stretch!  

Reah's turkey meatloaf muffins

I got this awesome recipe from my friend Reah...thank you so much for sharing! These look awesome!

From Reah...."I made these mini meatloafs last night, they are from Jamie Eason's page (not my recipe).  They are brother approved, although he said he could have stood some ketchup with them.  Just remember if using ketchup no HFCS (high fructose corn syrup).  They are not really a muffin, just made in a muffin pan.  Instead of a pan I used aluminum muffin tins and spray extra virgin olive oil.  I also used chopped onion, shallots, and garlic that is sold in a container at Trader Joe's.  It was approx the same cost without the prep. Next batch I will be adding green peppers (diced).  This makes a quick and highly portable meal option.  My cook time was actually 30, not 40 mins."

These are my new favorite running shorts! I wear them every time I workout!

I found this little poster today and it reminded me of my own struggles to adopt true lifestyle change. Any diet can work, and a 'new' workout can make a difference...for the moment. But, I have learned that lasting weight loss and fitness can really only happen if there is a change in mindset about food and nutrition.  That has to come from within and usually comes with a complete lifestyle change.

Who do you know that has lost weight, sometimes even drastic amounts? Was it through a 'program', a pill, a diet? If so, most likely their weight will come back...because there hasn't been a change in the most important place...between the ears. Many of us, and I include myself in this equation, use food as more than just fuel.  It is often used as comfort or a part of mindless eating behavior when eating, consuming more calories than we even realize.  I am not saying that I have all the answers, because I struggle too, I am saying that if what we really want is to end the up and down weight/fitness struggle, we must first look at what we struggle with internally.Get Fit, Stay Fit, Be Happy, Lisl

Find your Strong Workout!

No matter who you are, no matter what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to change.

Do you check the blog and skip class on the days that they look challenging? Major props to those of you that show up ready to take on what is planned.  If you only work on what you are good at, you will never truly grow, remember that being outside of your 'comfort level' is what will make you badder, stronger, harder and leaner...and most importantly, proud of YOURself!

Hydration: Stay Hydrated, it is AUGUST in South Carolina...if you plan on working out you will be sweating so make sure you are staying hydrated all day!
