We All Go Through It

My workouts this week were nothing crazy, but that’s just how it is sometimes. I can definitely tell you, I had to WORK myself into the gym most days this week. It truly does not come easy to me all the time. I almost skipped climbing on Monday and almost skipped boxing on Tuesday. But I just went. Grumbling the whole way. And guess what? I survived, it turned out to be awesome, and I’m happy I went. Wasn’t easy though!

I say this to tell you guys, WE ALL GO THROUGH IT. People act like I’m just always ON my game and I don’t go through the feelings of just wanting to be lazy and not work out. I’m not bionic guys. Trust me…I almost walked out of boxing a few times Tuesday night. Seriously. But I knew I’d feel MUCH worse if I walked out than if I just stayed and toughed out the class. I was right. I ended up getting great workouts even though I was dreading almost all of them.

Like I, (and everyone else), always say…..90% is just SHOWING UP. Just put on your workout clothes…GET TO THE GYM (or park or garage or wherever you do your workouts). Just START. Chances are that once you actually get going, it won’t be too bad. There ARE times when it is okay to rest. When you’re too sore, haven’t slept enough, need to relax…..but we all know the difference. Sometimes, you just have to push yourself.

Thanks for sticking around with my less than stellar blogging schedule this week! I promise things will go back to normal and you can read my rambling on a more regular basis. 😀

Questions for today: 

1. Do you travel often?

2. Do you work out when you travel?

EXCITING NEWS!!!!

Hello lovelies!

I’m working away this morning. Something about Thursdays….I like them. Maybe because it means the week is almost over.

Life

My work life has been really great these past few weeks. I’m feeling good, productive, and ambitious. Gotta harness that when it’s there! The companies I work with are also in a growing stage, which is pretty exciting. I take a lot of pride in not only my work, but also the companies I work for. It’s fun to see hard work manifest and become something bigger.

My workouts have been going pretty well too…..aside from the fact that I randomly was sick on Saturday evening through Sunday night. Felt about 75% normal on Monday, so it really didn’t hold me back much. I worked out Monday and then again Tuesday….but come Wednesday a cough snuck in. Grrr. As long as this leaves as quickly as my random sickness, I’ll deal with it. 😉

Exciting News

Okay, so I mentioned a while back that I was working on putting together an e-book and that it would be ready soon.

Well guys……it’s ALMOST THERE!!!!! I just need to put the finishing touches on it.

Fit Lizzio’s Fitness To-Go!

Cover

This e-book includes 10 workouts that can be done ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. It is the PERFECT little book to bring on a vacation or work trip, or for any other time too! You can gift it to friends or family, or keep it for yourself ;-).

All of these workouts take LESS THAN 30 MINUTES. So now your “i don’t have time” and “i don’t belong to a gym” excuses have been extinguished. 😀

The e-book is $1.99 and I expect to have it ready to go May 1st!

I’m so excited to share this with you guys! It’s my first e-book and I would LOVE to get your feedback and results. I’ll share more details about that part of it later. Hint hint: prizes!

Workouts

Since I did a full body workout on Tuesday instead of boxing as I had planned, I’m going to take a boxing class tonight, followed by some climb time at Rockreation! I’m still planning on hitting up the CrossFit gym on Friday for the WOD and then we’ll see what the weekend brings!

Hope you’re all having a great week!

Holidays, Exciting News, and Wisdom Teeth

Hey all! I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year’s! Mine was really low-key and I’m totally fine with that. I’m battling a nagging wisdom tooth today and doing whatever I can to try to relieve some of this pain!

Holiday Recap

This holiday season had me in Kansas with my boyfriend and his family. It was also pretty low-key and while we did do a bit of shopping and running around, there was also a lot of down time as well. We spent time with his family, shopped, cooked, baked, played games, went to a Chief’s game (in 9 degree weather!!!!!) and relaxed. With two full time jobs that have me running around Los Angeles every day, it was a real nice change of pace. It snowed for a day or two, but after that the weather was pretty clear.

I enjoyed the break and am finding it difficult to motivate myself to get back into the swing of things. Eek! This is a problem considering all of my pending projects that I’d like to accomplish in the coming months!

Exciting News

I wanted to share some exciting news with you guys!! While in Kansas, I only had a access to a gym for one day. The rest of the time, I was able to create some super-effective workouts that were done in the living room with NO equipment. I even got the rest of the family to join in for some of them. I can tell you that they were some really TOUGH workouts, but they were easily scalable and took anywhere from 15-45 minutes. I am also happy to report that I actually LOST a pound while on vacation. Of course, the scale doesn’t mean much to me, but I do use it from time to time just to know where I’m hanging out. It truly is JUST a number and not a true representation of anything, but it can be a guide to see where your body tends to stay and what makes it fluctuate most.

Anyways, with that said, I couldn’t help but think that I’m not the only person to go on a vacation and not have access to a gym. It can be awkward to ask to borrow a family member or friend’s car to go to the gym, and the day passes can be costly. While this has been in the making for quite some time, I finally decided to put together an e-book called TravelFit that will include workouts you can do ANYWHERE with NO equipment required along with some healthy snacking/meal tips for when you’re on vacation or out of your normal routine. It should be available towards the end of January and I cannot WAIT to share it with you all!

2013-07-15 21.42.25

The e-book will include: 

-15 different workouts that can be done ANYWHERE with NO equipment required

-Healthy Snacking/Meal Tips for when you’re out of your normal routine

-Ways to scale any workout to make it easier and/or harder, as well as to accommodate any weaknesses

Weeee!!! I hope you guys and others will enjoy this! It’s something I’ve been putting a lot of effort into over the past few months and finally putting it together has been really fun for me!

Thanks for a great year! While I didn’t post quite as much as I’d hoped, one of my goals for 2014 is to change that. I’m focusing on making some changes in my life in the near future and blogging regularly will be a part of that change.

Did you travel anywhere for the holidays?

How do you keep your fitness goals in sight when you’re on vacation?
