Catch Up + A Workout!
It has been a long, long, long time since I posted a workout on the blog, so today, that's exactly what I have in store for you.
But first, a quick update on my life.
You may have noticed that things have been a little quieter around here at Nourish & Thrive. Between teaching classes and clients at UNL plus my full-time job at Prairie Life, I'm finding that I have very limited free time.
However, I am still making meal prep, workouts, and sleep a huge priority in my life, because without those three things, my life would be complete chaos!
I am loving my job at Prairie Life. The people I work with are so helpful and friendly; I've learned so much in my first three weeks and met so many wonderful people as well. I now have given away several complimentary personal training and health coaching sessions, and I have gained 3 personal training clients that I'm working with right now. Some are not as long-term as other, but I'm really enjoying being able to help people find fun and health with their exercise routine.
The other day as I was setting up for a fitness class at UNL, the reality of my situation hit me: I really am doing what I set out to do. I am a full time personal trainer and health coach. Sometimes, I have to catch myself and recognize how far I have come in the past 6-8 months! It seems like it was just November of last year when I was without a job for after graduation and just about to start my health coaching program with a dream of becoming something I had no bachelors degree in. Now, I'm starting to really help people and hopefully make a difference in their lives!
I'll be honest, sometimes, I feel like a fraud - am I really knowledgeable enough about fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle factors to be helping others?
While yes, I do have a lot to learn and life is a continual learning process, but I also have to recognize and acknowledge the knowledge and education I do have. I have been through a lot personally with fitness and nutrition, but I've also spent a great deal of time researching as well. It's hard not to doubt myself, but I realize that my self-confidence will continue to grow with time and hard work.
Anyway, enough about me and my thoughts - let's move onto the workout I have for you today. It's all about legs!
For the workout, complete 10 rounds of 10 reps of each exercise. For the exercises that use one leg at a time, complete all 10 reps on one leg before moving to the other leg. Also note that this workout is travel friendly and space-efficient, so there's no excuses!
Hopefully, by the end of the workout, you will be feeling it in those legs! Baby deer legs, as my friend likes to call it!
