Pre-workout can’t touch this

When your tired, you’re tired

Today I was exhausted, beyond exhausted, I mean I should be, I work third shift and then come straight to the gym and during the day get maybe 4-5 hours of sleep and sometimes I work both jobs, personal training during the day and at night the second job. It can be a lot on my shoulders and very exhausting and yet I still manage to make it to the gym each morning — but even after making it, sometimes it isn’t enough to get my energy levels higher, I just try, try, try until I realize I need to go home and get some sleep. Trying is better than nothing, but trying barely meets expectations if at all. Yet, I made today a short workout — very short workout in hopes it would make working out today easier but not so much because I still barely finished and the only way I finished was crossing off one workout and doing one less set of two workouts. Blah, what gives? I need to prioritize my sleep schedule and do a better job with taking care of my body overall. 

If this has ever been your struggle, then you know exactly how I feel.

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 8+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
