📅Welcome to a new workweek!📅 📝Got a lot on your to-do list?📝 If so, make sure to get some movement in. It’s the very best antidote to stress and overwhelm!🧘🏼♀️🧘🏽♀️ Here is a portion of my back workout from last week. It was a really well planned workout if I do day so myself. 🌷Always make sure to pull from different positions to challenge all the ways your muscles move. 🌷For back workouts, I like to incorporate some kind of ROW, PULL UP, and PULL DOWN. 🌷It’s also good to change up your grip, like I did here. 🌷Try these three exercises along with some form of pull up and you’ve got yourself a solid back workout. 💐BENT OVER BARBELL ROW 4x10 Set with 💐REVERSE GRIP BENT OVER ROW 4x10 ⏱60-90 sec. rest 💐STRAIGHT ARM PULLDOWN 4x10 ⏱60 sec. rest 🌷🌷Add in Wide Grip Pull Ups 5x3-5. This would be good at the beginning of your workout if you're not solid on pull ups. Put it it at the end as a burnout if you can bust out a ton. ⏱3 minute rest Have a good week and take care of yourself!💜💜
Upcoming birthday alert! I’m turning 35 in a couple weeks! If you’re not excited about a birthday, ask yourself if it’s because you’re not proud of how far you’ve come in your life or if you expected to be further?…if that’s a yes, then now’s a time to do something about that! . Many parts of my life are exactly where I thought I’d be at 35 and other parts (going off on my own to be a wellness mentor and work within a business-framework?!!) are not where I saw myself…but I couldn’t be happier! . I would love to talk with you more about what I’m up to and if it’s for you. If you are someone who is driven, organized, loves helping people, values your own wellness, and wants a flexible lifestyle which is in your control, then let’s connect!
1. Emojis that represent your ancestral background? 🇩🇪🏡👩👧👦🚧🙇♂️🏚 2. Traditions? We are celebrating ‚the day of german unity‘ every year. Germany was divided into west and east. In this day nobody have to work and everyone can enjoy the time with their family. 3. Traditional food/clothes? Of course sausage and sourcrout are our traditional food. 🙂 Our ancestry wore skirts and hats. 4. Something someone from another culture would want to know about yours? I think germans are not that bad how the people are thinking. We are very helpful and friendly (the most of us 😂) 5. Language? In our family we only speak german. But we‘re learning english in school so the most of us speak german and a little bit english. @mylittleladygreta
I’m finally cleared to do 15-20 minutes of light cardio exercise of either waking or bike riding. I’m so excited to get back into the swing of things after my concussion. I had steve bring my bike into the house late last night after we got home from our football tailgate. He even was nice enough to set it up on my stand to make it stationary for me. I was so excited on my way home to get onto my bike but I came home to a crying boy. 😢 he’s been such a mamas boy all he want to do is be within 1 inch of me at all times. So my bike ride will have to wait till after he goes to bed because I’m totally going to soak up all the snuggles while I can 💙💙 Anyone else soaking in the baby snuggles today? #mamasboy#babycuddles#mybaby#myboy#lovehim#staylittle#postconcussion#cardio#workout#chocolatemilk#hershey#straightfromthebottle#newmom#workingmom#teachermom#boymom#busymom
Whaa-aatt?!!!! Let me explain. I didn't ALWAYS adore Mondays. In fact, Mondays and I used to duke it out every single week. But then, one day someone reframed it for me. She helped me to understand that Mondays are a fresh start. A chance to set the tone for the entire week. And... she pointed out, it was a GREAT day to be ALIVE. • • • So if today has been tough for you simply because it is Monday, here is YOUR opportunity to reframe the way you look at it 🙌
Navigating the Career Transitions Pathway can be very overwhelming. If you don't know what you are looking for it makes that much more challenging. Sometimes all we know is that we just aren't happy. Or we just accept the status quo. We are getting by and figure that's good enough. BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE. You could be passionate about what you do. You could be challenged (in a good way) at work. You could be excited to go to work each day. You could be valued and appreciated by your colleagues and supervisors. Regardless of what age you are, you can pivot your career goals and change what you are doing. You have transferable, marketable skills that will allow you to be hireable. Being able to effectively communicate them is key. However, first you will need to determine what it is you want to do. So if you are ready to figure it out and embark on your career transitions journey.... join me for my Facebook Live/Real Talk with Romy- this week's topic: Gaining Clarity- What I Wanna Be When I Grow Up! Clarifying Career Goals. Hope you can join me.
