I have had my YouTube Channel for quite a while now, but never really posted about it. Well, today I’m sharing my channel with you all as I will be posting more full length videos there in the future!
Here is the link to the official Fit Fotographer Youtube Channel.
Every year for the last 3-4 years I’ve been doing the same 14 week strength training regime leading up to summer. I do this because by the time school is out for the kids, I’m energized and ready for our busy summer. Endurance is key when keeping up with small children. I’ve learned a lot about myself over the years and if there is one thing I know for it, it’s that my children need a mother that’s fit and ready to handle their very active lifestyle.
I have always tried to make sure the little ones are engaged in some sort physical activity. This is part of the reason my children are so hooked on being outdoors. Physical activity allows them the opportunity to run off some energy (not much, but some) and it keeps them away from the tv and all electronics.
So I take 14 weeks to prepare my body for 8 weeks of non stop going with the kids! Last summer I completely stopped working out once school was over and I plan on doing that again. A 2 month break will be much needed after spending 5 days a week in the gym for the next few months.
Face it. There are days when we feel unmotivated to workout. Those days when you want to just lay in bed and do absolutely nothing. There is nothing wrong with having those days. In fact I do it quite often. Which is why my brother blogger at On the 50 Yard Line wrote this amazing post on staying focus and motivated. Head on over and check it out!
Happy Friday!! It’s almost time for the weekend which means REST DAY!! Now that wedding season is upon us, it’s more important than ever to get fit and build up endurance. With the constant kneeling, squatting and standing on your feet all day (in addition to carrying heavy equipment around your neck and on your shoulders) we have to be sure to work our bodies out in order to provide the best possible us for clients.
