This is where I share my experiences with you!
This blog was created by you and you may not even know it. After many requests from my facebook page, I decided to share with you recipes, workouts and more!
Everyone get cravings. It can feel like such as an intense desire to consume a certain food but usually we aren't craving food at all we want to consume food like substances. You all know what I'm talking about chips, chocolate, candy etc. Cravings feel stronger than just the normal hungry feeling but I would say that the root of our cravings aren't because we are hungry at all. We’ve all been there and we all get them. At times it seems like a curse but there are reasons why we get them.
Nobody dreams about coming in last and I don’t think anybody hopes or wishes to lose. From a very young age it’s instilled in us that there are winners and losers. We place such a strong value on winning and we are taught winning is good and losing is bad. This is probably why we never see anyone jump up and down overjoyed when they come in last place. But if you never know what it’s like to be last, you will never know what it’s like to defeat your toughest competitor, yourself.
I've been training with my trainer for almost three years now. Wow! That just hit me. I can't believe it's been that long. Out of those three years I've only been lifting for a year so I still feel like a newbie at times. Having a trainer has been like a security blanket for me in a way. I never use to like the gym. I always felt awkward, that I didn't know what I was doing and that everyone was looking at me. Having a trainer helps reduce the intimidation because they tell you what to do and stand by your side correcting every move. If you make a mistake people are going to look at your trainer not you.
First off I want to thank Shannon Macleod for sending in the idea for this post. I love hearing from you so if anyone else has any questions or ideas for future posts please let me know.
Being sore after a workout is completely normal . Post workout soreness occurs because our muscles are growing and changing. During a high intensity workout (such as weight training, intense cycling, long distance running etc.) we are actually causing our muscles to break down. After the workout, our muscles begin to rebuild themselves provided we give them time and the proper nutrients to recover. During the rebuilding process muscles grow bigger and stronger than before. Your muscles grow when you are at rest - not when you're at the gym. That is why you need a day or two between working the same muscles.
