This is my Fight Song


I can't remember a time in my life that I have been sidelined by injury or illness for a significant amount of time. I can't remember a time in which my body didn't do what I asked it to do. My goal for life is to be strong for my family, for myself, for my clients. I want to feel good, have energy, be the best I can be. But I have been put to the test the last 6 weeks. I had serious abdominal surgery. And for the first time in my life my body didn't do what I asked it to do. I didn't feel strong, I felt weak. I couldn't be the best mom, the best wife, the best trainer...I couldn't be me.

But today was the first time in 6 weeks I was able to get my sweat on. And let me tell felt amazing! So today I title this video and post "This is My Fight Song". Because today is the day I take back my life and my health. Today is the day I conquer fears and set aside doubt. Today is the day I get back to being me and I am ready for the journey no matter how long it takes. I have learned so many things these past 6 weeks and have had a ton of up and down emotions. But the most important thing is that I learned these lessons and have so much more appreciation for what my body is actually capable of.

Each person you meet along the way is going through something, some challenge you know nothing about. Show compassion, show kindness, show no judgement. Show love and understanding. Learn from them.

This is a great body weight workout and is one of my go to's when I am on vacation. I haven't done it in some time so it was a great one to get started with.

I normally perform 100 step ups to lunge on each side (today my goal was 50 as I am just getting back in a routine and listening to my body is a must).

100 step up with lunge timed (my best time completing 100 on each side is 10:38, talk about a heart pumping workout!)
3x: 10 pushups (I am in a modified position) alternate with 10 tricep dips (add a leg extension for a more difficult move)
1-2x: 50 squats

Turn up the music and get moving!
