To-do = To-done

26 Sep

I have some free time between clients so it’s the perfect time for a fitbit!

I’m beginning to write a personal training/fitness newsletter for the trainers and instructors and University Recreation. The newsletter will (hopefully) highlight a trainer each month where they can “brag” about their clients goals that they’ve reached, personal goals they set for themselves, and they’re favorite exercise/workout. I hope things go as planned! Stay tuned for more info on the newsletter!

How do you or someone you know celebrate when you’ve reached a goal? Do you like to be highlighted or would you rather keep it to yourself?

When thinking about how much you have to do today/the week, take a deep breath and focus on 1 task at a time.  Make a to-do list(high to low priority) and check off each completed task as you finish them. Looking at a full list of to-do’s and seeing that YOU CAN complete them will bring your sanity back. (I’m doing this as I type.. :D)

The Start of FitBits

25 Sep

If you’ve visited and pleaseliked my facebook page, you’re already in the know about my new approach to my blog. I’ve been asked by the NCSU recreation marketing department to include my blog in their newsletter! This is extremely exciting for me as I hope my blog will grow throughout the community :).

My new approach to blogging will consist of everything I blog about now (exercises/workouts, tips/trends, recipes, etc.) but in a condensed format and much more often! So instead of posting 1 long post sporadically, I’ll post more short and to-the-point “fitbits” (as they will be called) throughout the week. I’m excited about the opportunity!

My *first* fitbit:

Make Sunday your “get things done” day. Sunday’s are supposed to be relaxing, football-filled, and spent with family. Try to have a routine-here’s an example of my Sunday’s:

  • wake-up
  • gym/run or walk/rest day
  • starbucks for my latte & homework
  • grocery store
  • prep my meals for the week
  • lunch & football ALL afternoon/night & homework
  • dinner & more football & desperate housewives (new and final season!)
  • go to bed early!

It’s a great way to start your week off with a clean and stress-free slate. Plus, if you’re a planner-preparing your weeknight meals ahead of time saves you your sanity when life gets in the way throughout the week. Sunday is the perfect way to ensure you have healthy and clean meals to fall back on.

How do you enjoy your Sunday’s?
