Zuzka's Schedule for the week, My Latest Post for the, and Nutrition & Flexibility Tips

Zuzka's schedule for this week and her latest workout are posted. She has 4 new workouts this week:

Today is Bodycrush, which was one of my favs. I typically like these. The half burpee with kick and the split jumps seem like silly exercises - to ME. But I'm sure it is a great cardio workout.
She has a new beginner workout on Wed that is NOT a Kettlebell one, but there is a new KB one on Saturday. Another new 5 minute workout, but Power yoga is a repeat. No new JRC this week - no jumping rope from Z?! LOL.

I did a post about SOY for BR's FB page:

Give it a read and lmk what you think!

So here are some quick and dirty little flexbility and nutrition tips. 

As far as stretching goes you need to do it at the END of your workout, not the beginning. At the beginning it can actually zap some of your strength. Once you are all warmed up it is much easier to stretch. It is not good to stretch cold muscles so a warm room is also helpful. Hold each stretch for 60-90 seconds each to get the maximum benefit. 

How many of you are eating slower? I mentioned it the other day as it helps your body to feel full faster so you eat less. And I have a nutrition question for you - what is ONE little thing you can do today to help you achieve your goals? Is it - eating more slowly? Drinking one more cup of water? One less cup of coffee? One less piece of chocolate? Just choose something small that you KNOW you can do today. One step at a time. :) 


  1. I eat slower in general, if I'm at home or don't need to rush for any reason. If I do rush, it's definitely noticed as far as digestion is concerned.

    I could get a little more sleep, honestly. But I've been working on it consistently and have already felt and seen a difference. Getting enough sleep really and truly is essential; it's as necessary as breathing and eating.

    1. TOTALLY agree - I need a lot more sleep myself. I get migraines when I don't sleep and I've been battling one for 2 days now. And lack of sleep makes you crave sweets/carbs!

  2. I agree with you and Liz - totally the sleep. That really is the best thing for my 'nutrition'. If I have a good sleep I eat so much better!
