Namaste Cycle, not as “zen” as usual.

Hey Healthy People!!!


Time to relax:

BUUUUUT if you feel like this:

Don’t listen to your mind. Don’t cave into the little lazy non exercising devil on your shoulder! Get up, go out for a bike ride or a hike or a kayaking trip with your other half ❤

This morning I taught my last Namaste Cycle class at JMU which was a little bittersweet. It is one of my favorite classes to teach encompassing an hour and 15 minutes of cycling and yoga fused together! Best combo in my opinion because you get a great cardio workout and then a nice strength and stretching session.

But unfortunately today reminded me of something I need to let everyone know! You should ALWAYS have some type of food before you work out! I had a participant in this morning’s class that after the 40 minutes of cycling (granted it was a hardddd class…) needed EMS as she was feeling extremely faint.  She did not eat any breakfast and basically rolled out of bed before the class began. So please, be aware of your bodies at all times and never push yourself farther than you need to go! It’s good to push somewhat but be mindful. And remember always to drink lots of water and eat before a class.

Ideas for easy/quick breakfast options in the mornings:

1.) Granola Bar

2.) Yogurt

3.) Toast with peanut or almond butter

4.) Piece of fruit

5.) Handful of nuts.

6.) Trail Mix

7.) Dried fruit

8.) Cottage Cheese with pineapple

9.) quick cup of oatmeal

10.) Chewy Bar (my favorite for long runs)

These are all light options you can eat 15-30 minutes before you work out and not feel sick during your exercising.

SO GET UP AND GET MOVING PEOPLE!!! I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

Happy Eating and Exercising!!



P.S. ONLY 2 more days left of the FITNESS CHALLENGE!!! You can do it people, jacks and planks…remember form!

  1. I’m sorry to hear about the participant that needed EMS, but it’s great that you’re spreading the word about how to prevent that from happening again in the future.

    Nice post! And I think it’s cool that you live in FL! 🙂
