Train Like You Mean It!

Is it just me or has anyone else been exhausted since Daylight Savings Time??!  Its been so hard to crawl out of bed when my alarm goes off at 4:30am!

I’ve been trying to stay away from caffeine lately (other than Green Tea) but I needed some energy yesterday for my fasted cardio.  Enter Redline Xtreme:

I only drank half of a serving (which is 1/4 of the bottle!) and I felt so awake.  Definitely something I needed to get through my mile of never ending hill plus a mile run on the treadmill.

My current training has me doing a short fasted cardio in the morning then weightlifting and short cardio in the afternoon.  I have a coach that has been helping me with menu planning for a few months now.  I’m going to be getting workout plans from her too and yesterday was the first trial workout!  I did a full arm workout and it felt amazing!!!  I have been stuck in a rut when it comes to routines so it was nice to switch things up and work different muscles from different angles.  My arms were feeling it afterwards and I burnt more calories than I normally do.

I’ve still got a long way to go to get to my goal of a figure competitor body, but I feel confident that as long as I train like I mean it and not just go through the motions, I WILL get to my goal!!

That being said, I’m drinking some green tea and going to hit the treadmill!!
