Brain is FULL!

So I spent all day yesterday and today in a seminar, and it was FANTASTIC! The man who spoke, Rodney Corn, is amazing in the depth of his knowledge of functional anatomy, exercise progressions, program design, correcting muscle imbalances -- you name it, he knows it! It will take a little time to incorporate some of the concepts I learned, but it was definitely time well spent.

One of the funny things about going to a training seminar is that we didn't have desks or tables. We all sat on Reebok decks and by the end of the day, half the people were on the floor or on stability balls or doing stretches -- this is not a population that sits still very well!

On the training front, I'm stopping training with Tony, but is has nothing to do with him. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for online training, and someone who really puts his all into what he does. But right now I'm feeling so overwhelmed with kids back in school, new clients, and life that I just can't commit to workouts that take me outside of my comfort zone. So I'm going back to my old bodyweight, dumbbell, kettlebell circuit-style workouts, with some running thrown into the mix. And I'm looking forward to getting back to what I really enjoy doing. But I learned a lot from Tony and I'm very thankful for that!

I have to say, I am so happy that you are doing what makes you happy. There is nothing wrong with going back to your own weight...you look great at that weight. Life is supposed to be fun...and if you're having fun, your family will be having fun.

Have a super week!

The main thing is Leslie, to do what feels best for you, and not to worry about possibly doing the wrong thing, because when you know in your Heart it's the right thing, you can do it and move forward with confidence and belief in what you're doing.

So don't think about this, just do it, and put your best into it, whatever you do, and you WON'T fail in any way, to deliver the kind of results you want and deserve.

GOOD LUCK, chin up, be strong, and keep walking tall, and trusting in yourself, to make the right decisions for you.

You always do do that, and you should be proud of what you've done in the past few years, and you'll find plenty of reasons to keep being proud of yourself, so no worries yeah.

Everything will work out :-) :-).

OOOhhh...I like that Reebok Deck thingy. I was just thinking yesterday about how I wanted a better, taller step bench AND a compact weight bench. It's a little pricey at $250 but still looks pretty cool. What did you think of it?

That is pretty much the same reason I stopped with Tony, just too much going on.
