My Fitness Realization

I had a fitness realization today. The past week or so I’ve been sticking mainly to cardio workouts. I love my TurboFire and Combat worksouts (AKA – punching and kicking shit)

I’ve also been short of time with the holidays and family birthday’s etc – I like that I can feel like I get a kick ass sweaty workout in within the time constraints of a busy day. While ideally I would also like to be lifting weights as well (AKA zeheavyshit) I’ve got some tweaks in a few places currently. I know that overuse will definitely inflame said tweaks and put me out of the workout game totally.

Heading into this week thus far, I’m still sticking with cardio based workouts, and the last two days I’ve finished off with a few minutes of PiYo. It was today when I realized that during that short PiYo workout that I was huffing and puffing – partially because I had just finished a short burst over heart pumping cardio, but also because I was being challenged.

PiYo is somewhat a challenge for me because I spent so long shirking actively stretching and resting my body during my weight loss journey. Trust me, this wasn’t on purpose one of those annoying “in hindsight” kinda deals. But it’s been something I’ve been struggling with this last year – finding that balance of: exercise, rest, and active rest.

So this is my current challenge for myself. Work the shit outta that Piyo, and get better at it. Keep in mind that challenges aren’t always about loosing a certain number of pounds – it’s about addressing what’s standing in your way and taking it on. Big or small, currently I’ve decided that this is going to be mine.
