Fitness Friday #13


That’s me on a rest day…I don’t usually handle them too well. I know their purpose, I understand their purpose, I take them and I take more of them when needed. But working out is my stress relief and this was one of those weeks when extra rest days were needed.

Whether you call it elevation, too many burpees, stress or something else, my asthma has been all sorts of jacked the last few days and required an extra few days off. I was fit into a chiropractor yesterday afternoon and while it helped quite a bit, I definitely still needed to take the rest of the day easy. At least in terms of my fitness.

We’re gearing up for a busy week of events for 50 States though so I’m really excited for more days in the gym vs. RV style WODs. I’ve been programming some really awesome kick-my-butt WODs but there’s just something about being in the gym and lifting weights that I can’t get enough.

Fitness Friday #12 & Using That Inner Passion


Wouldn’t you agree? Every day that I’m feeling stuck or frustrated or at a loss of what’s next or how to make the 50 States project grow, I am reminded of my passion for this project and I use every ounce of that passion to get through the harder days. I know that when all is said and done, it’s going to have been worth every little trial and tribulation, every laugh and every tear, and every high and low moment.

It’s this same passion that pushes me through my workouts. Let’s be real, we all have moments when we feel like our progress has stalled and that’s where I’m feeling right now with my fitness. I’m putting in the work to the best that I can while on the road, using what I have to get some awesome workouts done, but I’m still feeling like my training is at a halt and I’m not progressing in the ways that I would like.


But that doesn’t mean I’m not progressing. Truth is, this is all a part of the journey. The journey for personal growth and this journey we call life. If I don’t struggle and work hard through those moments, I won’t appreciate the amazing ones when they come around.
