Hey Killer B!
Now that the great annual “Pumpkin Spice in August” debate has been waged on Facebook (for the record, I do not do the Spice until November, thank you very much – we have 90 degree days through October here in central California!), that must mean it is time to think about Fall. Or, at least the month of SWEATember.
Here is all the news you need to know (and probably more that you did not – ha!):
SWEATember, New Workout Guides And The Return Of The Buzz
Back To (Old) School
But first, let us quickly recap August, because it was So! Much! Fun!
I had thought it was going to be a little bit of a (much needed!) break for me, not recording workouts, but instead I spent a lot of time looking through old workouts and getting great new ideas for the future.
August was also really busy for me, personally. We dropped my oldest son off at college, which was as hard as you would imagine, and just two days later, I ran my seventh ultramarathon, the Run de Vous 100K.
What an epic adventure that was! It was so awesome to reach a goal that I have been thinking about for over 8 months. And also pretty exciting to be done with it, so I can start dreaming up new goals, too.
So, what kind of workouts did I do for myself, without the cameras rolling in the month of August?
Well, Killer B, I have to confess…I did not do anything! Not a dumbbell, not a kettlebell, not even a plank or a sit up! Can’t you believe it? Me, either!
I knew I would take a little bit of a break, but I had no idea it would be the whole month.
And let us be honest, here, maybe you have had a little bit of a “summer slide”, too? I have been hearing for the last two months over in the Killer B Hive (my super fun, interactive and private Facebook group) that it’s been tough to keep up motivation during the hot summer months. So what has a Killer B to do?
Turn the page in the calendar and get back to it. Because you know what is coming?
All new workouts are coming to the Pahla B Fitness channel this month, and they are going to be sweaty!
Now, to be clear, they are not all going to be extra advanced or anything – we do not want to get injured coming back from the summer slide. But, I have some fun and challenging workouts ahead of us.
Look for Low Impact Cardio, Kettlebells, HIIT workouts and more of your favorites in the next few weeks.
The New Weekly Line-Up
You know what else is coming soon? Short, sweaty workouts every Tuesday, for 10-Minute Tuesday!
I had been toying with this idea for some time, as the quick workouts have been very popular, so I decided to make it a regular gig, instead of mixing it up with Q and As and How-To videos.
But, Pahla, you were probably not asking yourself, but are now that I have mentioned it, where will that type of content go?
*little drumroll, please*
The “Buzz” is back! I was so excited when I first started this fitness vlog, and really enjoyed the idea of it, but the actual execution left something to be desired.
Recording episodes on my phone turned into all kinds of technical difficulties, and I just had to let it drop. But, the fact is, I still have more to say.
So, the new-and-improved “Buzz” (no iPhone videos this time!) – will be a regular feature on Wednesdays, with an all-new focus: “Fitness Mindset Matters”. Because your fitness mindset totally matters!
We will be exploring motivation, self-sabotage, goal-setting and lots more. I am really looking forward to having more of a conversation with you here on the blog about these topics.
What this means for the Pahla B Fitness channel is that there will be new content every weekday:
Monday = Full Length Workout
Tuesday = 10 Minute Tuesday | Short Workouts
Wednesday = The BUZZ: Fitness Mindset Matters
Thursday = Full Length Workout
Friday = The Friday Fun Run
I am looking forward to hearing what you are most excited about in the month of September – leave a comment below!
