GET TOUGH!

Time to get tough…cuz’ it’s “Tired Thursday”!

Thursdays are notoriously the most “tired” day of the week for my clients and myself – that’s why we call it:  ” TIRED THURSDAY” ; Thursday is one of the hardest days of the week PERIOD!
But not just the day of the week alone causes all fatigue…For example,  TODAY I figured out that my tiredness was due to 3 key factors beside it being THURSDAY:

  1.  I got up earlier yeseterday, worked out early, was “going” all day and didn’t get to bed until late last night!
  2. I took an allergy pill with Ephedra in it yesterday, PLUS an allergy pill at bedtime— that wipes me out the next day!
  3. I also hadn’t  been feeling so good. I’ve had a bit of a cold since last week and now it’s kinda lingering with gunk in my lungs and nose. Makes it hard to sleep and just makes me extra tired.

What should you do when you have a super TIRED day like I experienced??

Well, you could take a nap or ADJUST, I adjusted:
Instead of a “real” workout, I went for a walk with a good friend of mine.
Don’t be afraid to listen to your body a bit, adjust your workout if you need to, because you do need rest in order to REBUILD your body.
Remember it’s never too late to get BUFF, but at times it can be TOUGH!!!!
Keep focused on the positive and BELIEVE that you can attain your BEST body, life and legacy!!!
You ROCK!!!
