Mixing It Up

Getting back into a consistent workout routine has been wonderful, even it I really didn’t take any time off. The stress relief, sweat and over all feeling after a great workout really makes me feel amazing as part of my over all mental health.

I have been doing virtual spin classes, TRX, weights, cardio and yoga. I really like to mix things up and not do the same thing everyday. It is also better for your body to keep it guessing and keep the changes coming. Your body will get used to the same thing over and over; making the results much less apparent if at all. This is where a lot of people plateau, get discouraged and quit.

DON’T QUIT, try something new. Is there a class you have always wanted to try? Do it. If your gym doesn’t have classes or you workout at home use the internet. Google free workout videos, search for different combos online there are so many things to choose from. You can try one of the combos under the Home Workouts section of my blog. If you normally hike or run try mixing in some weight training. Cardio is great but you need to build that muscle to keep changing and burning.

Whatever it is don’t be afraid to try something new. You never know what you will fall in love with or really give you a great workout.

The Pub McKinney

The Pub McKinney was the first restaurant/bar we ventured out to visit. It is located in Historic Downtown McKinney. The venue offers a great atmosphere, plenty of seating, pool tables & games, full bar (specializing in Whiskey), craft beer and good food. There was a great outdoor seating area, it was cold the night we were there but we both commented it was a great space. I can’t wait to go back in some nicer weather.

 

We visited for an evening out for drinks and appetizers. The service was great, drinks good and the food was yummy. It was a great first stop in the area to see a new place and explore. This will definitely be one of the stops we take visitors and head to for a date night. Are you ready to go with us?
