This weekend has been packed with studying, reading for personal development, and learning. My brain is exhausted! When I get to the point where I don’t know if I remember anything I’ve read, I know it’s time to take a break (and get out my Peppermint and Rosemary essential oils for focus/mental burnout and memory!).
This week has been such a learning experience for me–from my classes at USF to learning new skills at work to learning more about myself during my daily personal development/reflection time. I’ve had so many things go wrong yet so many go right over the past seven days! I feel as if I’m a different person than I was when I woke up last Sunday morning and began the week! I’m so glad for the chance I’ve had this weekend to rest and reflect on everything. And I’ve had time to re-focus on my fitness goals for my cruise in December and put together a killer workout plan for the upcoming week!
When I took the course to become a Certified Personal Trainer last December, my instructor taught our class to create short, intense, effective workouts for our clients and to vary the intensity and type of workout every day of the week. High Intensity Interval Training is THE buzzword in the fitness industry today, and while it’s not always possible to implement this type of workout for my clients (because of deconditioning, injury, or other physical limitations), I love to incorporate HIIT into my weekly routine. I’m super excited about the return of plyometrics day as well!
