100 Training Days – Day 2, a day in the life

May 13, 2014 by Darlene McC

In my original #100trainingdays post I mentioned my new job – as trainers we often have clients whose lives are structured around chairs. They sit all day, have tons of meetings, and it’s hard for them to get to the gym. I love my new job, but today was one of those days. Tuesday always starts early with sessions and then it’s back-to-back meetings until I go. So today, as I walked out the door (of the gym where I work) I knew I’d missed my workout window.

But I’m not willing to bust on a challenge. And I knew once I met my couch I was going to sink into it.  So it was callisthenics time as soon as I walked through the door.

3 rounds per circuit, 10-15 reps, minimal rest:
     Couch arm pushup 10 rep
     1 leg deadlifts 15 reps/side
     Toe touches 15 reps/side
     Slow Mountain climbers 15 reps/side

     Switch jacks 10 reps/side
     Super man 15 reps
     Plie squats 10 reps
     Lateral lunges 10 reps/side

20 minutes total to meet my minimum requirements for the challenge. Then this happened:

Sore legs!

Collapsed on the bed with my legs up to prevent venal pooling. I was already sore, so tomorrow’s cardio should be fun!

I’ve always tried to be understanding of how hard it is for some if my clients to make time for fitness, but Tuesdays are driving home two things: 1) I didn’t really understand and 2) if you demand of yourself to make time then you will.

I’m going to go sink into my couch now.

(If you’d like to join in check out the spirit of the challenge here. Just hop on board!)

Just a reminder. . . #clearmindopenheart
When the Universe gives you what you needed, say "Thank You!" . . 2018 was a really challenging year. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. One of the most important things I learned along the way was to stop questioning when I get what I need. Instead I express gratitude! . . Time and again I'd be presented with exactly the growth opportunity or essential thing I NEEDED to survive...and I'd question it! I'd doubt if it was the right choice or if I could pull it off 🤦‍♀️ - until it became so obvious that my doubts were foolish. I was right where I needed to be. . . For #transfomationtuesday share in the comments some gratitude for times you were given exactly what you needed! 💓💓 . . #dropthedoubt #motivation #anothergrowthopportunity #growandchange #gratitude #universalguidance #modernspirituality #thankyou #saythankyou
"Age" has never been my challenge. I don't mind getting older - I don't mind getting wiser, stronger, and more resilient 💪💜 = = My challenges have been negative self talk, the aftermath of bad decisions, and the frustration of not living up to my personal best. Cultivating a growth mindset and working on my relationship with myself has shifted all that. = = We are all a work in progress, and my work is certainly not done. May the next 10 years have the vision and challenges to teach me lessons I can't even imagine right now. = = #howharddidaginghityouchallenge #growthmindset #levelup #curlyhair #selftalk #positivity #positivevibepositivemind #coaching #coachmentality
Rest in peace, teacher of us all. 🙏💗🙏 #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga ・・・ Geeta S.

Thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday a truly magical birthday. I'm so fortunate to know I am loved, supported, and truly blessed. . . . 2018 was a huge year of challenges and growth, like nothing I've experienced before. I'm ready for you, 2019. Smarter, faster, and stronger than ever before. Let's see what we can accomplish. . . . #happybirthdaytome #ihaveamazingfriends #thankful
Growth is an essential human need. . . To progress. To change. . . Sometimes we need to look back down the path to see how far we've come. Today the past reached back (via Facebook) to show me how far I've climbed. . . Never doubt that you have the ability to grow. To change. And yes, I believe that people do change! Oftentimes it's so subtle we miss it. . . So far 2018 has held many challenges; the biggest difference from 2008 is now I can see the opportunity wrapped inside them. . . #tbt #progressnotperfection #winning #fitpro #curlyhairdontcare #growthmindset @teameqx #greenwichaveequinox #equinox #itsnotfitnessitslife #committosomething
