Today's Coffee Talk
Episode 17 is all about your legs and glutes!! Get ready to burn major calories as you burpee and box jump your way to the very last buzzer!
Do you ever have a bad workout? You know the ones I'm talking about - you had to work late, drained of energy but you went to gym and much to your dismay, you didn't lift like you thought you would or you didn't run as fast as you normally do. One of THOSE workouts. We all have those days every now and then. The thing to focus on is that you did a workout! You could've taken the easy way out and gone home. There are so many reasons (aka excuses) why you could've skipped your workout, but you looked those obstacles right in the face and conquered them!
It's ok to not "smash" every workout. At the end of the day you should be able to answer one question - did you do your absolute best? If the answer is yes, then don't feel bad about a "bad" workout. Don't let it get to you and bring you down. You DID a workout. Be proud of yourself!! You fought through the discomfort and you got in there to put in the work. You BodyRocked my friend! Now, let's lace up our sneaks and get the job done today! 12 minutes of fun!!
