#Crush Your Kryptonite: Exhaustion

December 31, 2013 2 min read

Man that Kryptonite...its rough stuff.  Thankfully I don't suffer, too much, from emotional or binge eating.  It's mostly due to the fact that I really don't crave food when I'm emotional.  Or at least I'm aware that it doesn't do much for me.

Mine is exhaustion.  Tiredness.  Being worn out either mentally or physically.  I am a stay at home/work from home mom to a wonderful little two and a half year old.  My husband works some pretty crazy hours at times and takes quite a few business trips so I'll often find myself trying to hold together the house, our daughter, work, and relationships by myself.

I struggle trying to get everything done and it doesn't help that I have a huge OCD problem when it comes to keeping my house clean which means that I place unnecessary pressure on myself to keep it sparkling.

Plus side: Clean House.

The Negative: worn out Rachael.  A lot of the time I will find myself struggling at the end of the day to even pull out a book and read because I've been worrying so much about being a good mom, cleaning the house, stocking the refrigerator, getting my writing done, and remembering my errands.

I become so exhausted at the end of the day that all I want to do is curl on the couch with a glass of red wine and not think, not move, just breathe.  This means that if I don't get my workout in during the morning or during my daughter's nap it is so hard for me to drag myself out to the garage to get in a Hiit workout.

My kryptonite isn't that uncommon.  I know so many moms who feel like they don't have the time to spend on themselves to workout.  I completely understand.  But on those days when I'm mentally tough for some reason and I do go out and workout...I feel light as air.  I feel as though the stress and exhaustion has been swept from my body like crumbs off the kitchen floor.  The only way to combat exhaustion is to exercise.

For all of the parents out there, your children deserve the very best from you, they deserve parents that are active and healthy and set the example that physical fitness isn't just a fad...it's a vital component to life.  Take 20 minutes for yourself.  On those days when you just want to lay back think about your pumped arms and round butt and all those calories.  Studies have shown that the longer you think about working out, the more likely you are to do it.  Take a minute and visualize.  THEN GO.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 1-2 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
