Two years ago, I wrote a post about intuitive eating.
Since ending my meal plan with my nutrition coach, I’ve been back to following a more “intuitive approach” to eating while trying to keep a slight eye on my macros. You can read more about intuitive eating HERE.
For this post, I am literally discussing the same thing but just replace eating with fitness. Back in March, I started doing Crossfit. I feel in love so hard with it that I got to a point where I burnt myself out.I started to slowly burn out when I started working again and teaching classes. I didn’t adjust my fitness routine to accommodate the classes I was teaching (and ultimately doing at least at 80% capacity of the class).
Hence burn out.
So in the past couple of weeks, I’ve just been really listening to my body. I don’t have any “set days” of programming with the exception of doing Crossfit twice a week plus teaching one Pilates and one spin class.This way if I teach extra or feel like I want to push myself a bit harder that week, I only have four set workout days and I can work around them. I don’t really consider Pilates a full on “workout” as it’s more focusing on mobility. But I wanted to keep in my mind just in general so I wouldn’t over do anything during the week.
Although, it is a lot of core work and my abs are usually pretty sore.
I wanted to bring my approach to minimalism to fitness again. Earlier this year, I got rid of a lot of my fitness equipment and I felt my best with my workouts.I’m trying to shift my approach to recovery.
I notice I just don’t focus enough on it and I really want to be more intentional with my approach. I’m not getting younger and I really need to keep an eye on my knee.I look forward to my rest days and make it an enjoyable experience.
As I always say, one day at a time. ❤
