I ended my summer vacation with a visit to the happiest place on earth – Walt Disney World. It was so much fun!!!! I thought about all of you while I was there. I don’t take a break from being a Power Girl when I’m on holidays and you shouldn’t either.
I didn’t do my workouts but I made choices that made me a ‘Power Girl’ all week long. Let me give you some examples. First of all I walked alot! I didn’t sit around while waiting for rides, parades, fireworks or buses. I stood up, jumped and walked around and even did wall squats where ever possible.
I have a secret exercise that I do to keep my abs looking good too. It’s easy and no one can even tell that I’m doing it! Are you ready for it? I suck in my belly and flex my abs whenever I think about it. It really works and you can do it when ever and where ever you want.
Lots of people would use boats, escalators, lifts, trains and other things to get from place to place. I used my Power Girl legs to get me around. Now don’t get me wrong, if I couldn’t get someplace in the park easily by walking, I would use the Disney transportation available, but if I could walk there in less than 20 minutes that’s what I would do.
At Blizzard Beach there was a long line to take the chair lift up to the top of Summit Plummit. I climbed up the stairs, and not only exercised my heart and legs but avoided a 30 minute line. I felt great!
Let’s talk about food choices next. So many sugary, fried things to eat. Ice cream, candy, chocolate, pop, funnel cakes, pastries, cookies…the list goes on and on. Well I did eat some of those things but not everyday. I made a point to choose healthy snacks and desserts like, fruit, fresh pretzels, and popcorn.
I did have some of the sweet treats, but not everyday. I felt better about the few sweet snacks I had, because I knew that I was also having healthy snacks too.
Here are some pictures of me making healthy Power Girl choices eating at the Crystal Palace. Water instead of pop, or soda if you’re not Canadian 😉 and a salad FIRST, then some healthy meat and veggies.
Being a Power Girl is something that you have to think about ALL THE TIME and you can’t “take a vacation” from making good choices. It is really about balance and when you learn to be dedicated to making healthy choices most of the time, you get the results you are looking for!
I hope you’re enjoying my Beginner Workout on You Tube , I have just finished the next video which will be released later this month with new exercises and something more challenging called “Jump Training” for those Power Girls who want more of a challenge. It’ll be great!
I’m also working with my Dad to design two shorter more intense workouts I’m calling “Time Crunched” for you to do when you don’t have the time to do a 20 or 30 minute workout. They’re more intense but much shorter so you’ll get twice the benefit in half the time! They should be ready by Christmas, and will be my Christmas present to you. See girlfriend, I’m always looking out for you!
Keep up the good work!
Your Friend and Coach,
Here’s a picture of me getting Piglet’s autograph. I’m not sure if Piglet is a boy or a girl, but could definitely use some Power Girl help!
Here is a pic of my brothers and sister with Tigger. Isn’t he cute? Wait, I meant Tigger not my brother 😉
