A Note from Your Imaginary Personal Trainer

Dear Kate,

Hey! Just your imaginary, personal trainer I’m dropping a quick note to chat.

from your imaginary personal trainer

First, I want to say way to go for getting back into running! Those HIIT workouts are killer and you have been rocking them! Keep that foam roller close and don’t stop. I’m sure your half marathon is going to be awesome!!

Second, please remember that consistency is king. KING. You do great when you are in the gym, but let’s just try to do it consistently. I know it can be really hard to overcome the “all or nothing” mentality, but a 20 minute dvd or a 10 minute yoga session or a quick walk counts. It really does. It’s good for your body and good for your brain; and it certainly is better than nothing. So stick with it. Every damn day. Or at least 4 days a week. 😉

Finally, I like that you are mixing things up–keep strength training, running, and yoga-ing.  Plus all those fitness dvds!! You’ve got fitness for days, girl.

So get it girl! Or else I’ll go all Jillian Michaels on you. 😀

Your imaginary, personal trainer.

  1. Consistency is definitelyyyy something I really need to work on, and I’m having major issues with conquering that “all or nothing” mentality too! 😡 Great post, and I hope you have an awesome rest of the week! <3

  2. I’ve just talked myself into running again — which I need to do as soon as I hit enter :). Good luck on your marathon training.

  3. Consistency is KING! Isn’t that true! When I become inconsistent I tend to lose my momentum. Your trainer is wise 🙂 Have a great day!

    1. Thanks Diane! It is so easy to be hot and cold with fitness, isn’t it? Trying to keep myself at a nice steady pace right now.

  4. Love love Jillian!

    OMG! I’m so glad I’m not the only one with the all or nothing mentality! It’s a tough mindset to change but I’m working on it. A short workout is better than no workout right! I have to keep telling myself that.

    Thanks for linking up!

  5. Love how you get right upfront with your weakness….getting into the gym. You’re great once you’re there. I always say, the fastest way to make improvement is to start with your weakest link. And, so you have! It helps me realize that my weakest link is my diet….those random nibbles that turn into meals. Oi. I got your back. 4 days a week. You go it! Much love, Kate!
