Workout Wednesday- “Changing with the Seasons” September 23, 2009

As the seasons change, be aware of how you feel and change with them. We too, change with the seasons.

Hey everyone. How are you doing this week? I know I’ve been hearing a lot of people say they are a little low energy or feeling a bit off emotionally. I am experiencing something similar, but I do believe it’s all a part of the Summer ending and the Fall beginning. As the seasons change, so do we, and I think many of us are feeling the shift internally. Instead of sitting around moping, I think it’s a good time to get even more active. Throw yourself into your workout routine and really push the envelope.

For example, I have been really craving the gym lately, even more than usual, so I am going to capitalize on that. I am also eating quite a bit more, so I have some extra calories I need to burn, LOL. They have actually turned out to be a great source of fuel for my workouts. However, today it hit me. I’ve been doing the same amount of sets of my full body circuit, for about 4 months now. Even when I make the exercises harder, it only challenges me a little bit more. So in order for me to really crank it up, and make the most of where I am internally, I am going to add an extra set or two of my full body circuit. So on the days I do 2 sets, I’ll do 3 and on the days I do 3 sets, I’ll do 4!!! Yep, this should be interesting to see what happens. My body, mind and spirit seem to be really craving more of everything, so I am just going to trust that and go with it.

Where are you internally? Do you feel the shift of the seasons inside of you? Are you feeling a bit like you need to shift things in your life as a result? If so, let me know! I’d love to help you figure out a good way to compliment your life with a few good fitness tips. Please leave your questions and comments here for me on the blog! Here’s To Your Health!!!

  1. This is a great post. It seems we think similarly on this issue. The seasons change and our emotional state shifts ever so slightly. I think it is why we say love the changing of the seasons. It is palpable. You can feel it in many parts of your body and if you really listen, your body will tell you what to do.

    Thanks for the post,

      Hey Mark…thanks. Yes, it is almost exactly one year from the day I wrote this article and I am beginning to experience this phase of the cycle once again. I have learned so much and come so far since I wrote this, yet here I am again, LOL, and therefore what amazing confirmation on my theory:) I checked out your site and watched your videos…amazing…I admire your work. Would love to connect more if possible. Thanks for reading and sharing!
