I feel like a superhero, a ninja mama, a bad ass; all at the same time. Where to start? What is the motivator?
Luckily for me, two years ago my chiropractor punted me to Beth Zeitlin, a personal trainer. Beth immediately rocked my world and I have never looked back. I am happy to say she has become my friend and someone I admire. Since our time together, my view on fitness has evolved and I love the new direction it is going. I have balance, confidence, and appreciation. Beth has knowledge, experience, and she inspires me to challenge myself. Most importantly, I connect with her approach. We also have plenty of laughs along the way.
My focus on physical strength in the gym has taken a true commitment on my part. It was the right time and right person in my case. The focus and goals are simple with efficient workouts. If I am going to sacrifice a bit of my day I want it to be challenging, rewarding, and a whole lot of fun. It is elective but a priority. My sessions range from TRX, pull ups, monkey bars to planking like a mofo except when my shoulder acts up. I never really know till I get in there. Beth challenges me with what I think is the unthinkable.
I am my own super hero. I am running around with my son and never not feeling capable. I want to be a role model for Aleisi and model the behavior I preach to him. I want to keep my body moving and practice a healthy lifestyle. This is what I can control. These are my motivating goals. It is a piece to my puzzle. I work out twice a week and I love every minute of it! My workouts are a total outlet for me especially when my world is spinning or one of those total shit show mornings decides to grace me. But a few pull ups later and it is all in the rear view mirror! Sometimes I just need to get out of my own way. I am hoping over time to share more about my time with Beth. Perhaps some guest posts from the true bad ass herself! That would be amazing!! xo
Goal: To be healthy, treat my body kindly, not take it for granted, and never stop moving. I have to be my own motivator!
