Yesterday was my first Kaia workout as a married woman! And I’m definitely not blaming this on the married part… But, OUCH! I had not worked out on our honeymoon at all and I was most definitely paying for my time off! (I did pack my workout clothes… I promise I had good intentions!)
However, through all the heavy breathing and moments of nausea, it felt good. Good to be back in our gym, surrounded by my Kaia family, with sweat on my face!
What I couldn’t stop thinking about after my workout though, was how quickly your body changes. I couldn’t believe how lackluster I felt, how difficult it was to breath right during ball-ups and how much I dreaded every partial squat thrust! Instead of being upset with my performance, I was actually grateful. Grateful for the reminder that mobility is a gift not to be taken for granted… Grateful for all that is challenging and rewarding at Kaia… And grateful to know that I will be back to feeling ‘normal’ if I commit to my workouts!
Each woman’s relationship and journey with exercise is unique. Some love it, others work hard to tolerate it. Some see results quicker than others. Some find more emotional payback than anything else. No matter how you feel about it, there is one unifying fact about it… IF YOU DON’T USE IT, YOU LOSE IT!
Take my personal recommendation and stay on the wagon. Don’t miss classes. Take advantages of make-ups. Lean on your Kaia family for support and encouragement!
If you haven’t exercised for a long time or have gotten out of your routine, don’t fret! NOW is the time for a fresh start!! It will likely feel hard as you get started but stick with it. Push through, take a break anytime you need it and remember to have fun!
Here’s to the rest of Summer Sculpt FIT Session!
I’m excited to be back! (No matter how much it hurts!)
