Well I made it through my first Monday back to work, sort of…
Olivia woke us up at 4am Monday morning sick, luckily my dad had the day off and was able to stay home with her. It was a rough day, cut my finger, dropped stuff everywhere, aunt flow came to visit (sorry if thats TMI), Rebecca didn’t sleep at all Monday 😦
Let’s just say I am so happy its Tuesday!!
And even better … It’s Time to Dish The Fit!!
This week’s Topic….
Well I have not really had a true personal trainer but I have participated in a few GROUP fitness classes and have had my fair share of time with Television Trainers like Tony Horton and Chalene Johnson!!
So what are some of the best things those folks have said or shared with me???
My first real trainer was Shawnda Norlock she is an Ontario certified group Fitness Leader and High School Teacher. She was the ONE who taught me anything is possible. She introduced me to running back in 2011 and really pushed me far!!!
She always said things like …
ABOUT EVERYTHING – EVEN 10 K at 30C or 5K at -20C
when I was getting tired!
she taught me
as well, speed work in disguise!!
Another very influential person in my fitness life isn’t a trainer but rather my Chiropractor – Richard Radford. He kept me in top shape when my body was letting me down. He knows how important training and racing is to me. His most memorable quotes include…
Of course he says this with a smile and is a very close friend!
Tony Horton, (P90X3 and P90) is an AMAZING trainer, I mostly love his jokes how age hasn’t slowed him down and why waste your time on the elliptical when yo can get a terrific workout in your living room in just 30 minutes (no offence to those who love the elliptical)
Chalene Johnson known from Turbo Fire and Piyo has a wonderful personality. She encourages you every single step of the way. She begs you to LOVE you body and reminds you that you need to think positively!
Lastly, I do not know exactly who wrote this awesome motivational gems, but I sure do love them!
My girls used that last quote on my medal hanger that they made me for Mother’s Day last year. It really has a special spot in my heart!
What quotes have motivated you?
Do you have a personal trainer?
Side note: so far I have kept to my bedtime routine and other than sick kids keeping my up, I am getting more sleep.
