5 Things to Remember in Life

Some motivation and words of wisdom for your Monday.

  1. Money can’t buy happiness, but it’s way more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than in a bus.
  2. Forgive your enemies, but definitely remember the a-hole’s name for the future.
  3. A wise woman once said “F*ck this sh*t”, and she lived happily ever after.
  4. To thrive in life you only need three bones. A wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.
  5. Alcohol does not solve problems – but neither does almond milk.

Birthday cake. Proof I’ve always loved carbs.

Tools needed:

1 heavy dumbbell

A pair of moderate dumbbells

Workout is split into two sections:

0:00-18:18 – Cardio

18:20 – 50:00 – Strength/abs

I still think I’m 20. Well, not really 20, but I don’t ever think of myself as 47… middle-aged.

And this isn’t some Pinterest “make-you-feel-good-about-your-age” bullsh*t blog.

No, I simply never think about my age… until I look at my loving husband.

HAHA.

Truth though.

He is almost ten years older, and it’s only when I take notice to his age that I start thinking “Crap, if he’s old then I must old too”.

But, nonetheless, what can you do? Especially when the alternative to aging really, really sucks.

Here’s to getting older 🙂

It’s one set, 40 seconds on, 15 seconds of rest in-between and a total of 20 exercises.

All you need is you and a solid WiFi connection 🙂

New Year’s Resolutions

Today is  January 1st – so Happy New Year!

Everyone is rolling out of bed today with the best of intentions to make their resolutions, their promises to themselves, stick for the year.

And I love that.

In fact, I have a few myself cause I’m always trying to up my game – and what better time to begin but with a new year.

What I don’t love, however, is when we beat ourselves up, or throw in the towel completely, if we go off the rails.

Perfection is unattainable babycakes. Hiccups and bumps in life will occur.

[bctt tweet=”Hiccups and bumps in life will occur.” username=”FitnesswithPJ”]

What is attainable, and completely in your power though, is what you do when you do hit a bump and fall down.

The way I see it you got two choices: A) give up, B) dust yourself off and get back up again.

Which choice can you live with?

Ask yourself that next time you hit a speed bump in life… and if you need some encouraging I am always here for ya.

Yoga for Everyone

Yoga for Everyone

Yoga For All Levels

Yoga. I used to hate it. I was one of those numb-nuts who used to say “Yoga [insert rolling eyes here], that is waaaaaaay to slow for me.”.

And then I turned 45.

An age when mobility and flexibility starts to head south for an indefinite winter break.

So, I started going to yoga classes, and guess what happened?

Yup, I started to like it. 

I noticed myself getting calmer, as well as my ability to touch my toes came back.

So, I took a little course to teach it and went off to spread the yoga word to the masses.

I started with my little crew at an outdoor bootcamp one summer, and they encouraged me. “Yes, PJ! We would love for you to add yoga classes to your schedule.”.

I did and they hated it. 

Now, they didn’t hate yoga, or my class per sae.

Instead, what they couldn’t wrap their heads around was me being all gentle and kind in a workout.

Telling them that if something was too much “feel free to go into child’s pose”. If you need a break “lie down”.

They preferred the ass-kicking, yelling and screaming, move-your-ass-or-I’ll-throw-something-at-ya PJ.

Not the yogi PJ.

So, I hung up my teacher’s mat.

Every so often I sub a yoga class at The Studio, being careful not to be too nice (HAHA).

I also start my day with 10-minutes of sun salutations to get the blood flowing and the kinks out of the low back, and I attend classes as a student (I especially love attending yoga classes when I travel).

So, if you are one of those people who claim they hate yoga – please don’t.

Cause it is whatever you set your intentions to be.

Try this workout and make your intention to be curious. Curious on learning how to slow down and breathe.

From there who knows maybe you might actually find yourself rolling your mat out more often, instead of your eyes.

Cardio + Strength #4

Well, it’s happened.

I have officially run out of names to call my workouts.

Apparently there are only so many different combinations of Cardio & Strength Workout.

So, I will now be naming my workouts sexy names like:

  • Cardio & Strength #4
  • Abs #22
  • HIIT #9

I know, super imaginative!

Circus School

I took our instructors to circus school for our Christmas party – and let me tell you jumping on the trampoline is a lot more scarier at 47 than it was at 7.

However, I think we are all ready for Cirque de Soleil now, if the super-duper remedial version call. 🙂
