That sounds so controversial and I know you’d think no way . Well yes it can. I’m not speaking in the terms of grading or money I’m speaking in giving the best of yourself . For me for now I’m speaking of my workouts. There are days and not consistently but my workouts are not what we say “100” and it maybe a 50 compared to the previous day’s workout; BUT if my energy is down, or I’m fighting off an illness or for no apparent reason a 5 lb weights feels like a 40 lbs. Now with any of these known factor if I give my best I am giving 100.
Just to share as I had this conversation recently if you give your best and not holding back you are a 100. To 100 in each of your workouts as I will continue to give 100 in each of my workout.
It was just one day and that day was Monday – Memorial Day, I decided to skip my workout, but I did my steps in moving about but again I skipped my workout. I did not feel guilty but my body is so programmed I noticed a change in energy.
Tuesday’s workout was good, no great but I had to push myself since it was so easy to skip Monday’s workout. Now there are times when my schedule change and life throws us curves that we have to make adjustments. However being committed and focusing on goals, for me its “my fitness journey”. Just a share if you’re not committed you can make an excuse everyday that will deter your goals.
What the heck am I saying, well it’s easy stay committed to your goals, even if you get off course for one day and maybe two but don’t make it an end.
Every trainer has a different approach to workouts. To many just watching will deter your thoughts. How so because you might think as I’ve done in the past that it is too much.
Every trainer I’ve worked out with has been GOOD. Really each one, no kidding, each one. I know this seems like a lie, but it’s not. I’ve had trainers at the gym and of course I do now workout a home, love beachbody. I want to clarify NOW as I’ve been confronted for having such a support for beachbody and home workouts. With my fluctuating schedule and other responsibilities going to the gym was not able to help with my fitness journey as I was able to make it to the gym once maybe twice a week and sometimes not at all. Home workouts gave me a freedom And I am able to keep my goal and fitness journey in focus.
Returning to “trainers”. Trainers have a different approach but they all have the same outcome. The trainer may not be the BEST for you for whatever reason. PLEASE let’s show respect and not BADMOUTH a trainer. Just move on to one that works for you as well as challenge you.
If you don’t have a trainer or feel you don’t need one okay. Just keep a schedule of your workouts and increase, routines, reps, weights and add another this will prevent the muscles and body from being complacent.
Beachbody has many trainers and for whatever your level of fitness is and with this offer I had to earn instead of running away from a challenging trainer to modify and continue. This is how I’ve learned different approach, yet challenging, satisfying workouts. I do cry sometimes, and I huff and puff, I fall down also I question the sanity of trainers when I am challenged. BUT once again they’re ALL GOOD.

Once again here I am sharing my fitness journey, I love to because really it is not easy as a 1, 2, 3. I have to prepare. I have to mentally tell my self WHY I am on the journey, which sometimes require a few minutes of meditation. The meditation helps me to prepare my mind and body, to calm down to temporarily remove thoughts of the what needs to be done later, and concerns of others …. I have to focus on myself .
I focus on my strength and power within to give my all or as I usually say my 100 through the entire workout. Just a reminder my 100 varies it can be be an 80 but for that day it is a 100 because that is what’s in the tank .
My favorite “JUMP TO IT JUICE”, which I drink 20- 30 prior to my workouts on 80% of my workouts propels me to higher levels of energy.
I’m sure there are a few things I may add to my preparation, but these are the tops and they work for me.
To a week of productive and awesome workouts also to filling your 100.
