The title of today’s is to remind us all to make everything we do count, no matter how big or small. What is small innings to one person, might change the life of someone else!
This week is a happy week for me because I reached a decision about something that has been weighing on my mind. Over the past 6 months or so I seem to have added more and more responsibilities to my life, to the point I get less and less done. My passion is to help people and be available to do so – yet lately I have been spreading myself so thinly, I have become overwhelmed with these responsibilities, meeting expectations and feeling guilty that I have neglected my roots here at myomytv. With so many projects in the mix, I had to make a choice – which ones NEED ME and walk away from the rest…
As of today, I am NO LONGER a leading member of Girls Gone Strong I am, of course, still a fan and always will be an Original Co-Founder (which I am very proud of). Julia Ladewski has also stepped down, which leaves 5 members. I am confident that GGS will survive and flourish without me – myomytv would not.
I want my life to be less complicated and I feel I am constantly changing my “hat” depending on where I am: myomytv, GGS, PowHow, Nursing, me as a person etc etc. I just want to be Marianne Kane and make my mark where ever I happen to go. All I have to do is decide where I am needed and commit 100% to that.
With this being Thanksgiving week in the USA, I am thankful that I was involved in GGS at its birth and thankful for the wonderful friends I made in the process They certainly made their mark on me <3
Before I start tearing up again, let’s get on with today’s workout:
Simplify your life and simplify your workouts!
Set your Gymboss Interval Timer for 24 cycles of 20 seconds rest and 40 seconds effort. Complete 3 rounds of the following 8 exercises. Remember you can adjust the times to suit your own fitness level, just as long as you aren’t slacking! Check out the weights I used and reps per exercise in brackets below):
- Double KB Suitcase Deadlift Burpee (2 x 20kg) (13, 12, 10)
- Alternating Single-Leg Hip Thrust (14, 14, 14)
- Inverted Row (13, 11, 8 )
- Lateral Lunge (right) (12kg) (12, 11, 11)
- Lateral Lunge (left) (12kg) (11, 11, 11) – these are tougher than they look!
- Push Press (right) (14kg) (14, 14, 12)
- Push Press (left) (14kg) (14, 15, 13) – could’ve used the 16kg if I’m honest.
- Two-Handed KB Swing (24kg) (30, 30, 29)
Hope you all enjoy this and have a wonderful week! I will be spending spending some time away in Galway with my mum for her Birthday.
Finally, there is a chance the site might be down for a while during the week as some changes and updates are put in place. We aim to get these done during an off-peak time so as not to inconvenience anyone
