Sweatin’ “It” Out
Pizza. It’s what’s for birthday dinner.
Hi guys! THANK YOU for all the birthday wishes. Ya’ll are too sweet.
All in all it was a very good day! Work was work, but when I got home I had a SUPER exciting call to be on (which I will share with you all ASAP…I intended to this morning, but got caught up last night in birthday wineImeanfestivities) ate pizza, and drank (yes, drank) birthday cake.
What a fabulous finale to a birthday week!
This morning I started off my day with an early morning spin class, followed by some upper body work. After a quick sink shower, I headed off to a client’s house to train her, eating my to-go breakfast along the way:
Or drinking, rather. Just another healthy mocha frappucinno protein shake!
I hope my sink shower was enough this morning, because one sure fire way to get me spinning is an RPM spin class. Luckily I brought a change of clothes, because my shirt was pretty soaked.
It’s funny how different people feel about sweat. It seems healthy living bloggers LOVE sweating. I don’t mind it, but I don’t love it either. It’s actually kind of annoying during spin class. However, one of my clients makes sure I’m very well aware that sweating is her *least* favorite thing to do. Naturally, every session, I ask her if she’s ready to do her least favorite thing
Unfortunately for her, she’s just gonna keep on sweating more and more because each week she’s getting fitter and fitter. Regardless if you love to sweat or hate it, it serves a very important function.
The more in-shape we become, the more we’re going to sweat because our body becomes better and better at cooling itself down. Sweat’s just our body becoming more efficient at regulating our core temperature.
What’s in sweat? Contrary to what a lot of people believe (hot yoga devotees, etc) it’s not a bunch of toxins leaving our body (nor is it fat crying, unfortunately.) It’s actually mostly sodium, water, and electrolytes, which is why it’s super important to stay hydrated when you’re going to be sweating heavily, along with replacing those electrolytes.
On that note, it’s time to wash this dried coat of sodium and electrolytes off my body Shower time! Have a good day, guys.
PS – did I today’s my last day at the BIC!!!
