I’m back!!

It’s been almost exactly a year since I’ve last posted, but a lot has changed in my life! We moved to a different state for my husbands job and I am no longer actively personal training (I’m still a certified personal trainer).

I am now working in Human Resources again – I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Management, with a specialization in Human Resources. It has been a big adjustment, but I am liking my job. I do miss personal training! I am hoping that one day I can get back into it.

During this year, I have experienced having to balance a 9-5 job, family and keeping up with my workouts. It has been challenging, but I finally feel like I have a good routine. I am not perfect, and miss a workout here and there, but for the most part I stick to my routine. I usually get to the gym 3-5 times per week, which is much less than the 6-7 times a week I was in the gym while I was personal training.

This year, I feel I can finally relate and understand what my past clients and friends were telling me about how hard it is to get into a consistent workout routine while working full time – it is hard!!  It is all about routine and commitment. Having a plan is essential. Knowing what you want to do for the week, and then coming up with a way to accomplish it is key to success with a busy schedule. As a trainer, I was conveniently at the gym daily – which made it fairly easy to get in a workout every day. But now, I have to dedicate myself to staying in shape and make time to workout.

Being a working mom and wife is tough, but I’d rather be tired than out of shape and unhealthy. I usually get to the gym in the early mornings before work, so I can spend time with my family after work. It is tough to get up at 5:30am, but I never regret a workout after I complete it.

As I mentioned before, the hardest part about having a workout plan and sticking to it is coming up with the plan. I am going to help you all do that. I am going to post my workouts as I complete them, so feel free to follow along and do the workouts with me. As always, please post any questions about the workouts in the comment section. Enjoy!
