Same time last week my life was about my business and catching Pokemon. I was focused and excited about the next block of training that my clients and I were about to tackle (which started this week no less!)
As I write this, I am grateful that I am no longer passing blood clots the size and shape of my finger when I pee.
I am grateful that I have amazing friends and family bolstering my spirit. I am so so lucky to have an amazing partner who has been so caring and supportive.
Tomorrow morning, I will head to the hospital and get ready to tackle the rest of my life as a Cancer Conqueror.
It’s no secret that Pokémon has taken over in the last week or so. If you haven’t heard people talking about it, you may have noticed people out and about looking intently at their phones. If you haven’t been aware of this latest craze.. well time to come out from under the rock you have been hiding under.
Pokémon has been around for decades in the form of trading cards, cartoons, movies and video games but it is this newest video game incarnation that has really got people involved for all the right reasons.
There is a misconception that protein powder is only for bodybuilders who yearn to only be able to walk through doors sideways and women who wish to be bigger and musclier than their significant other. For that sort of stuff to happen, you will find that there is a hell of a lot of work in the gym being done over a number of years. Genetics will also play a role in their size and YES – let’s address that over sized, roided out elephant in the room..
Meal Prep is the abbreviated term for Meal Preparation.
When talking with new clients I ask them about their diet and the challenges they face when it comes to eating healthy choices. Time, portion sizes and general laziness are the main excuses I receive and it doesn’t surprise me.
Here’s a bombshell for you:
A some of you may know.. I haven’t been well over the last week or so. Nothing communicable thankfully but it’s been this lingering annoyance that presented itself as a mild cold – for 5 WEEKS. During this time, I’ve felt pretty good. Not 100% but well enough to work, train, play tennis.
It all went to shit this last week.
A bit of a 2 for 1 message today.
A client told me today that she was discussing the various exercises we do with a good friend of hers as a subtle nudge to get her to start exercising. Her friend’s response?
