100 Days of Fitness: final week

My 100 days of fitness is almost complete! My original plan was to finish on December 31st, but due to two missed workouts, I will finish on January 2nd, 2013. 100 days out of 102 :)

I have come full circle with this commitment. In the beginning, I was very enthusiastic to get to the gym. In the middle, there were a few days where I was looking for a day of rest, but in the final four weeks, my love of exercise took over big time! Now I’m sad this commitment is ending, and am trying to decide on my next fitness commitment. I’ll decide on a new commitment by the time I finish this one.

Here are two things that helped me get through this commitment with very little soreness – and, as a result, very little need for rest:

Pink Himalayan Salt

I am beyond obsessed! I have weaned myself off all anti-inflammatory OTC meds with this salt…20 minutes in a warm bath and any soreness or tightness are dramatically reduced. (disclaimer: yes, I sell this salt as part of my natural body care business, but even if I didn’t sell it I would promote it as a wonder recovery salt). Pink Himalayan salt contains 84 vital nutrients that help restore balance to the body, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, boron etc – my family is addicted :)

Chamomile essential oil

Chamomile essential is one of the most gentle and effective essential oils. I have been doing planks, using the TRX and working on my core every day during my 100 days of fitness. As a result, my neck and shoulders are tight…using chamomile essential oil with a carrier such as grapeseed oil or an unscented lotion has been a lifesaver. Chamomile has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, and immediately relaxes whichever body part I manage to overwork. If you tend to overdue or push yourself at the gym like I do, you should have this oil on hand.

Thanks for following my 100 days of fitness journey! Let me know your fitness goals :)
