Not Another Change!

I totally freaked out when I found out kickboxing was cancelled for tonight and that my trainer was going on holiday for 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS??!!! {I need to cry a little.}

I woke up this morning thinking that even though it was still a holiday that I was going to get back to my regular routine - morning workouts at the gym; evening workouts at ClubFit. I've got tons of work to take care of in the middle of the day ... so yes, back to my normal routine.

Body Balance was amazing as always. I really needed to stretch my hips out as I think walking/jogging outdoors on the pavement has caused a different type of soreness. Nothing painful, just a bit stiff.

I got home and sat down to get some work done ... and that's when Marc messaged me.

While I'm not in a total panic, I am feeling a little frantic. I cannot go for 2 weeks without any MMA training. Shadowboxing can only take me so far ... I've got to come up with a plan ASAP.

I know on some evenings I can hit the track and work on my running. Perhaps I'll go spinning on the other days ... there are some options, but I'll need some time to figure it out. What a relief that the food aspect is taken care of with the Whole Life Challenge.

I'm trying not to freak out. I'm glad I've learned to roll with the punches a bit more and not totally break down when changes in my routine come up, but I have to admit that I'm kinda getting tired of them.
We'll see what happens.

  1. Change can be so hard but sometimes it is good to mix things up a bit, if not to just have our muscles doing something else for a little while. :)

  2. I'm a huge body balance fan. Sucks about your kickboxing tutor though. You are beyond cool

  3. Hi PlumPetals! The nerve of the trainer going on vacation for 2 solid weeks!!! :D

    You'll survive, but how aggravating!
