I am not finding balance between working out, teaching, going to grad school, and now my personal life has taken an unexpected turned. I am exhausted most days. I was on track with my weight loss journey. Now I am trying to find balance again.

Last year I was  motivated to workout and get in shape. I found time to workout in my busy schedule was it easy, no. Now after a yr of only going to grad school full-time I am back into the work field. Now I need to find balance between working out, going to school, and working.

I wanted to try something new in my weight loss journey. I didn’t want to do my usual run, weight training, or even HIIT training instead I wanted to go for a swim. I love swimming; I used to swim back in high school.

High Intensity Interval Training

I love working out. Yes, I do complain when my trainer is pushing me especially during high- intensity interval training (HIIT). I have a love/hate relationship for HIIT simply because of the interval training and no rest until your finish with a set, which can take up all your energy.

It’s the benefits of HIIT that I enjoy:

  1. Efficient
    1. It does not take up all day. If you have a busy schedule you can still squeeze in a workout either early in the morning, during a lunch break, after work or before bedtime. As mention in Shape magazine “Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training doing it 3x a week then jogging on a treadmill for an hour.” Continue reading “HIIT”

I want to say losing weight is easy, but that will be a lie. There will be moments when you doubt yourself and want to be made over again. Start with a clean slate, but some times you have to encourage yourself. No matter how you feel, have the confidence in your process. Continue reading “Encourage Yourself”

When it comes to being fit it takes a lot of dedication and motivation. We all have our high moments when we are losing weight and it feels great, then we reach our plateau where we are not losing any weight.  We still feel committed until a day rest turns into two days, then 3 weeks until you have to find the motivation to get back into working out. Some times we don’t find the motivation,  and we go months, and months without working out until we gain all our weight back.  Its at that moment we feel defeated, and starting over is not fun, but we have to back into the workout groove.

80/20 Rule

By: Ms. K

I am not going to lie, I don’t always follow the 80/20 rule in fitness. For the last two months I have been following a vegetarian lifestyle. The last two weeks have been the hardest with trying to eat healthy and working out. Looking back at my pictures I realize I haven’t ran in two weeks. I basically been slacking with my workout. Plus I have been eating out more, and drinking.

Who’s Missing?

Have you noticed throughout the World Cup, there is not one woman referee? Why is that? Are we good enough to referee our own matches but not for men? When will gender relations improve in the athletic world?
