On The Mat With Mari: Back To School Juju?

I don't know if it's because it's the beginning of September or because the new school year is upon us but this weekend has been all about reevaluating my goals and making a plan.

It has been one month since I had a day off and ya'll I took full advantage of it. I finished teaching my yoga class on Sunday morning and I came home and got to work on my new workout programs. I have been solely focusing on strength recently but this month I decided to shift my focus to more of a body building program but I don't want to lose the strength that I have developed so I am going to try to merge them together. This week I will be doing 3 lower body days, two consisting of volume and one focused on load (squats and deadlifts). I will also do two upper body days; one volume and one load. I will also continue my daily yoga practice as well as LISS cardio on my spin bike. 

Once I was done creating my strength program, I went on to the next thing on my list which was recalculating my macros. Now I just need to stick to them!

I always joke that I die a little bit in the summer and I am born again when Autumn rolls around and that's exactly how I feel as I write this. This feeling reminds me of when I began my marathon training...I had a an end goal and that fueled my fire. I feed off structure and it felt amazing to sit down and jot all of this down.

Do you guys have any new goals for this month?

Check out the video below to see some of my lower body volume workout and of course some other rambles...
