August 2019 Fitness/Wellness Update

Welcome to my monthly recap where I share my fitness and wellness updates. Overall I have still been able to stay super consistent with my workouts. My nutrition could have been better.

Eating

With school staring up I have found it a bit more challenging to make sure I am actually eating enough food throughout the day. Several mornings I have gotten in the car with all 4 kids on the way to school drop-offs only to realize I didn’t actually eat anything for breakfast. For September I would really like to dial in my nutrition to make sure I am eating enough food. It is crazy what a change of schedule will do if you aren’t planning ahead.

Workouts

I started my new training plan this month and didn’t think I would love it as much as I am. For three months I am only going to be using kettlebells. For years this type of training didn’t interest me at all and whenever I would use ketllebells I would always feel strained in my lower back. A little over a year ago Josh and I scheduled a personal training session with a local kettlebell instructor and he helped me so much. Sometimes you need to find an expert to help you figure out what you are doing wrong.

With the knowledge from working one on one with a trainer I have greatly improved my form and confidence with this type of movement. In case you are wondering I am using the Strong Program from Fit Women’s Weekly . I am loving it so far! August was all clinic type workouts to make sure you have the main kettlebell movements mastered. I have been so sore! This week was my first full week of workouts and I love it!

Wellness

Here are a few bullet points from August:

  • I had a horrible sinus infection that took me out for a day before the meds started kicking in and I also lost my voice. That is hard when you are a mom with little kids. Thankfully I am on the mend!
  • My grandma treated my mom and I to manicures and pedicures which was super sweet and much needed. It was my first time back in a nail salon in over two years! My feet and hands felt and looked so good afterwards.
  • I am almost finished with the Old Testament for this year. I have the Psalms and Malachi left. Woohoo!

Thanks so much reading and following along on my wellness journey this year!
