Idiot In Front Of The Camera Tells TRUTH About Exercise Increasing Energy & Productivity

I believe to all who know me- it is a well known fact that I turn into an idiot in front of camera.  It doesn’t matter WHAT kind of camera…. I just morph into a person 2x the ridiculous amount of crazy that I already am… Been doing it ever since I was a kid- some things just don’t change.

HOWEVER…

No matter what kind of ridiculousness I was acting out [for all that is good and holy, London….] I was completely honest about what our workout group has done for me in only 2 WEEKS!!

2 weeks!! how do you like that ; )

Only after 2 weeks I saw SERIOUS improvement OUTSIDE my physical workouts.  Seeing improvement in your body shape takes time- however, It only took me 3 workout sessions to realize that on days that I worked out I got 3x as much done that day!!

Everyone has their worries and stressers, but I have been searching for a job for so long that it started to affect my sleep.  I would go 48 hours without sleep, and if I could sleep it would only be in the mornings from 9am until 1pm.  Hardly a good routine to be in…  But once joining the workout group I was able to get more sleep- probably because my body knew it needed a resting period!! Plus, our group finishes on week days at 6:45/7:00am…  For a long time that sounded waaaaaay too early for me to be getting up to make breakfast, let alone go workout somewhere…  But after the first exercise morning- I drove away more awake than I had been in weeks!!

Exercise is “good for you”…  That’s great- we all “know” that, but what is not always told is that IF you have a big work presentation coming up and you need to get a lot of work done- one of the BEST things you can do to get the jobs done: GET EXERCISE!!  Working out for body for just 20 minutes wakes you up infinitely more than a power nap does!!

So what do you have going on this week? This month? This YEAR!!

-Are you planning a wedding and want to get in shape AND have the energy to plan all the nitty gritty details that go into weddings?

-Are you a mom that wants to get back into your pre-pregnancy jeans AND have all the energy it takes to keep up with your toddlers, or even worse teens?!

-Are you intensely focused on your career/goals and want to boost your productivity in those areas?

Our workout group in Solana Beach is where ALL of thoooose kind of women [which is ANY AND ALL] come to meet for 45 minutes in the morning, have out “girl time” as I ridiculously put it, get in a SOLID workout, and then go out and TAKE ON THE DAY!!

CARPE DIEM!!!

half the battle is sparking your motivation

Everyone has to start somewhere!! When it comes to fitness and health that is the BIG equalizer…

For me- I promised myself almost 3 years ago that I’d get back into the shape that I felt most comfortable in- and then things like my gluten allergy hit as well as my new found love for Moet champaign & Almond Joys… Who knew?!  So for the past 3 years I had  felt all the motivation I thought would eventually make me stick to my fitness plan- alas, it turned out to be just enough motivation to make me try a whole bunch of things that didn’t work for people like me; people like YOU!!

Okay, so if we rule out running [because not only has it not ever been my strong suit- but I can’t be in my head for that long with nothing else to do… too much going on up there…], then that leaves home work out videos or gym exercise.  Let me tell you: I have done both- and for a fair amount of time, which makes my “experimenting” with these options viable.

I worked out at “Fitness” gym for over a year, almost 3-4 times a week and  I would do the elliptical [my version of running], and then weights.  I also would use my heart rate monitor while I was working out to make sure my h.rate was always in the “fat burning zone”…  After a year of doing the whole hassle [you gym-ers know what I am talking about: getting ready your water, towel, workout clothes, clothes for after your work out, ect, ect…] I decided my money wasn’t being put to good use since my fitness level had hardly increased.

I next tried home-video work outs… It is a rare gift to be the type of person who can not only clear a large enough space somewhere in their house 3-4 day of the week in order to work out- but then be motivated through the whole hour or two of the freaking video!!  And believe you me- I tried easy exercises [like dancing workouts] to mid-range [regular push-up, crunches, squats] to the intense [P90X]…  I did my research!!  But none of these videos were working out for me- and I thought about why…

People are social and competitive, and most times need correction and positive reinforcement!

Most people [so don’t think you’d excluded from that!] need a group work out in order to see results.  In a group the members feed off each other, which increases the fun and the competitiveness to do more! do better! and not just against the other people, but against yourself as you start to see improvement.

So this is my new theory- and as always I am putting it to the test!!

I am joining a group workout club that meets in Solana Beach/ Carmel Valley [in San Diego, CA], and since I am sure my theory is right- I am going to document my journey in getting healthy again!!  I’ll review the group and see what secrets they know, and tips they can help all of you with.  So my first workout is this Saturday morning… Stay tuned!!
