share. learn. thrive!
2012 has arrived and I need some extra excitement to inject into my workouts. So, I looked to a fellow co-worker and friend, Heidi Otterbein who just happens to be a Muay Thai fighter and trainer.
Usually I shy away from personal training because I generally can motivate myself. I just stick my earbuds in and go. But, there are a few inches that are not coming off from Christmas and my overall motivation is dragging!
Sometimes you can get stuck in a rut. Getting out of that rut and seeing results depends on your willingness to try something new- push yourself and shock your body into a new area of capabilities.
Chatting with Heidi about her attack to this 'rut' problem, she expressed her belief in short station workouts. She is used to pushing hard and switching workouts up. This is not a cardio kickboxing class, this is training. I will be punching, kicking, elbowing and kneeing as if I was actually fighting an opponent.
This I like!! It sounds like fun and a great way to get out any leftover aggression or angst from my day to day life.
What am I going to do? Well, tomorrow I will find out- my first session is right after work on a Friday evening.
I will be updating you all on my journey into the world of Muay Thai and how it affects the changes to my body and LIFE!
Food: Cut out anything white- from bread to potatoes, I'm getting rid of anything heavy, gluten or grainy.
Workout: Keep up 4-5 times a week (in gym) with one of those days working out with Heidi.
