I just got back from an amazing weekend in Toronto with my girlfriends. I’d never been before and it was such a fun and interesting city. Canadians are incredibly nice, the city itself was really hipster and different from Boston, and the restaurants were delicious. All around an awesome time.
This morning though, I was exhausted, and feeling no so great after another long weekend of drinking and eating. The last thing I wanted to do was meet my trainer but since I’m paying her, I don’t really have a choice.
Today we tackled one of my biggest workout fears (without my trainer even knowing it). She had me do box jumps.
I used to always watch the contestants on the Biggest Loser who were afraid to do box jumps and I couldn’t understand why. I’d always think it wasn’t that big of a deal and they just had to stop thinking about it and do it.
About a year ago though I was going to try it myself and for some reason I completely psyched myself out. It’s definitely mental and I never went through with it.
It sounds ridiculous, because again, all you do is jump, but there is something about it that totally freaks me out.
Well today I did box jumps, and I am so happy about it. I started off on the small lower to the ground box jumps but she quickly had me move to the taller box. Midway through she asked what sports I played in highschool because I was a really good jumper.
That little comment completely made my day. I stopped being so worried about doing them, and just let my body go and I have to say…I like box jumps!
I’m really excited for this month of October. As of today, it’s 2 months until my wedding day! I have a lot of healthy fitness goals this month and a lot of fun things to look forward to, like my bachelorette and my first ever half-marathon. I think October is going to be a fantastic month
