2016 Adventure Begins!

Woooowha!  I'm so sorry that I have been "off the grid" and "under the radar".. Buts I've been super busy working with my Marines at Wallace Creek and New River Air Station.  No complaints at all - but those crazy demanding hours keep me from posting and reporting to you!  My Athletes (everyone is an athlete)

January flew by, it seriously was a blur.  My daughter & grandson came for a visit and I spent a few days of quality time with them.  We had a lot of fun!  The weather in NC was amazing during their visit as well.

I personally started on my New Year- New ME!  As of January 2nd -yes that's when I started my new fitness regiment and a running challenge.  A small pre-stretching workout, foam rolling routine prior to heading out on a run.

2014 & 2015 I struggled with a hip,leg & knee  injury that I'm not exactly sure where and how it happened.  So with my knowledge and skill set along with my fellow sports massage therapists (Kristen Paradise) expertise I have been able to eradicate the scar tissue and fascial adhesions that have slowly restricted my ROM & flexibility -it has also caused my muscles in the thigh to stay in a constant shortened state which has effectively weakened my muscles of the thighs into my calfs causing a plethora of additional problems and pain issues.  NO MORE, I'm not getting any younger and I'm the one who has to live with this, so I made a commitment to myself... I said SELF.. (Actually I called myself something I won't write .. You gotta laugh at that, cause it's funny) You can and will do this - and so I have.  I also wanted a notable change when I left for my trip in February (which I'm doing now)

I am committed to my daily morning 15-20 minute pre-workout which consists of:
•Foam Rolling
•Static Stretching ( when done correctly is very powerful)
•Squats (3 sets of 10/12)
•Yoga poses
•Deep Breathing

This pre-workout warms me up before I head out on a small run.  I usually get anywhere from 1.90 to 5K in.  My longest run this year has been just shy of 6 miles (5.89).  I'm trying to get my miles under or at a 12 minute mile... That's realistic because of my height & weight.  I will continue to work at that.  But seriously, it feels good to get out and exercise at my comfort level and I am enjoying my gains!  I get these results from the hard work I put in everyday!  You can do it to!!

If your the type that needs to be pushed, told what to do or need a trainer / coach... Get one, it's worth it. 
Food -nutrition is the next hard piece of this puzzle ... I have my juices (I naturally juice on a weekly basis) and I incorporate salads, nuts, chicken and tons of vegetables as well. I LOVE bread but stay away from it because it ends up being "saddle bags" on my ass! 

What ever you do... Don't quit - invest in yourself, because frankly... NO ONE ELSE WILL

I'm out for now, thanks for reading the beginning of the 2016 journey!

Glitter & all!!
