Week One Down

The change in schedule due to the Coronavirus shut down, sent me from 65 hours a week of work, to 25. Needless to say, I had some free time on my hands. So lets review how much I was able to accomplish and how I “crushed” my week.

Personally, I knocked out 2 seasons of “Turn, Washingtons Spies”, which is done quite well, and worth a watch to say the least. I was shocked, laughed, and thoroughly enjoyed the accuracy of the scenes and intensity of the characters. Give it a looksee if you like historical fiction.

I also used my extra time in a super hero way to eat. You might call it Super Eating. Bags of popcorn, peanut butter cups, and brownies. None were beyond reproach for me and my mouth. I probably ate an extra 5,000 calories. It wasn’t necessarily stress eating, I just enjoyed it. Its what I like to do when watching the tube on the weekends.

Doing this once or twice on a Saturday and Sunday is great decompressing for me. I thoroughly enjoy it and take no guilt for it. But doing this seven nights a week, which I did, does bring me some self loathing. Probably because and I’m going to be fat and lazy if I continue to repeat the behavior. And there are better and more valuable things I could be doing with the extra time, to say the least.

So what do I do? Sit around and beat myself up for not being perfect and responding like Superman to the change of my schedule and stress of the Coronavirus?

No. I have a new week ahead of me. In fact, I have 40-60 years ahead of me. So, I say I love Dennis, he’s a pretty good guy. And I give myself a pass. No self loathing. No self deprecation. No wasting time in self pity. There is a world out there and it doesn’t need people beating themselves up. It needs people who can contribute in any small way. People who have a positive energy and want to add value to the situation.

So, if you spent time last week not being your best, its okay. These are stressful and uncertain times, and a less than perfect response is okay. Shake it off. Week one is behind us, and week two is ahead of us. Lets refocus and set our minds to the next 7 days. Think of a way you can be of value. And go do it.

Hi, my name is Cheyenne. I graduated from Michigan State University with my bachelors in Kinesiology, minor in Health Promotion, and then pursued a full time personal training job in a corporate fitness center. I have been a personal trainer since 2018 and started coaching CrossFit in 2020 when I got back into CrossFit after about a year off. I first started CrossFit back in 2014 in my hometown, Three Rivers, MI., and continued with CrossFit through college and now after college. I thoroughly enjoy coaching CrossFit because it not only helps me better myself, but I get to educate, coach and inspire everyone in the community of CrossFit. 
I have been into sports and fitness my entire life. I played volleyball, basketball, soccer and track through high school, and continued the healthy, active lifestyle with CrossFit after high school. Not only am I passionate about fitness, I also enjoy traveling, the lake life, gardening, my two kitties and anything outdoors.


CrossFit Level 1 Certification



My view of fitness changed on 2013 when I was introduced to Crossfit. Like many, it immediately had my attention. I became a coach because I saw the positive impact it had on my physical and mental health, so I wanted to pass that on to others. I work a full time job and am married to an amazing woman who does Crossfit with me. I also have three great kids who I cant convince to do Crossfit with me. Kids. Aside from spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy coaching others in fitness, living a mostly healthy lifestyle, and am an avid Steelers fan. Go Steelers!

Currently, I hold a Crossfit Level-2 certificate and my goal as a coach is to continue learning, weather through Crossfit or other effective methods. Physical and mental health go hand in hand with one another, and I believe exercise is the perfect medicine for both.


CrossFit Level 1 Certification



I’ve been working in the fitness industry since 2002. I started training myself when I was 15, started eating right when I was 21, and started training people when I was 26. I’ve been passionate about taking care of my body and living a healthy lifestyle for over 25 years now.

My belief is that every one of us should know how to take care of our bodies. I’ve spent the majority of my life working with a wide range of people to help them do just that. From 14 to 82 years young, college athletes to double knee replacement patients, to people who wanted weight loss to people who needed weight gain. Over the past 16 years I’ve accumulated roughly 70,000 hours either doing, teaching, or learning about health and fitness. All that time invested has helped me have an incredible clear understanding of how to work with people and coach them to their health and fitness goals.
