The grind; solo edition

Ok, so I know I have talked a great deal about finding the right gym buddy. This morning, I proved that to myself yet again!

Today was a regularly scheduled gym session with Trainer Britt. Due to unforeseen circumstances, she had to cancel on me (hey, I’m not a paying client, I’m the guinea pig she practices with!). I got a text from her just a little after 6 am…. I leave to meet her at 6:30 am…. While I completely understood, I couldn’t help but have the thought that if she had told me last night, I could have slept in this morning! Buuuuuuut I was already up, and all my gym clothes were ready to go, so I decided to hit the gym at the regular time anyway. It’s aaaaalmost like she knew me! hahaha she continued to send me today’s workout, as well as motivational texts all throughout it. That tricky little minx KNEW I would hit the gym when I was already up!

Solo gym session! Don’t worry, trainer Britt sent motivational texts throughout!

Omg, it is sooooooo much harder to walk through those doors and get that workout started when you don’t have someone waiting for you inside. It would have been sooooooo easy to reduce my weights, or my reps, or my sets. Who would know? Brittany is as much an accountability partner as she is gym buddy! She keeps me pushing my hardest and keeps me honest!

Without my trainer, I followed the same workout I explained in depth from last wednesday. For ease, I’ll post it again here. But for a much more detailed explanation of each exercise, please see my previous post, here.

Full body workout, killing it!

After that, I showered and headed in to work. On my lunch, I took a 6Km walk to shake out my legs, and get away from my desk. It was another hot humid day, but that breeze was heavenly. I like going for walks on my lunch. It helps clear my mind, gets me out in the fresh air, and gently moving my body.

How did you move your body today?

I am a self proclaimed gym rat and trail running lover, but I haven't always been. It took me a long time to find the peace and joy that physical fitness can provide!
