How Gixo Is Changing How I Workout

Truth time - I've struggled a little with the transition back into the work force. I LOVE my job. But I went through a period of feeling very disconnected. And the last thing that I wanted to do was workout alone. So of course I turned to social media and asked if anyone in my area wanted to run/workout with me. Crickets. Yep, that's basically all that I got - crickets.

And then I got an email to try an app called Gixo. It's live guided fitness classes. I thought why not, and I signed up for a free trial.


I didn't know what to expect,
but I fell in love with my very first class. I've never been able to do exercise videos, but this is a totally different experience. The instructors are awesome. I do feel like I'm working out in a group class (especially if the class is outside).

The classes have different formats. Several of the classes are outside and goals are set. After an easy run or walk is done, the instructor then gives you a target pace/distance for the next run/walk. I've pushed myself harder in the last few weeks than I have in a very long time. And I have loved every minute of it.

Some of the classes are only 15 minutes, and I actually thought that would be a waste of time. Wow was I wrong! I've found that the 15 minute quickie classes are a great workout, and they usually leave me one sweaty mess.

The core workout and booty workout are also great classes. Each are usually around 15 minutes, but it's enough to get in a great workout, but it's also short enough that I can sneak them in around other activities. You can message/call the instructors if you have questions or need modifications. I've found all of the instructors to be really helpful, friendly and great motivators.

I can't say enough good things about Gixo. I have truly found an app that has changed the way that I workout.

Just thought I'd share.

Let me know if you give it a try. I've love to join you for a class.

Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Thank you for helping me follow my dream.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
