Getting Back To My Old Self

Greetings everyone!

Last week I started a new workout plan and for the past two weeksI‘ve been eating healthily. Well with a little cheat meal here and there. I try not to look at myself in the mirror now because every time I lookI‘m looking for a big change when it’s not there. 

Well this weekend, I walked by a big mirror and glanced. I looked smaller. I told myself I was lying to myself and kept walking. LOL. I told Star what happened and she said that I did look smaller. That’s such a confidence boost!

We haven’t made it to the store for groceries yet. I’m hoping to go on Wednesday. But we are keeping up with our healthy snacks. Today Star went to Publix and saw the cherries were on sale, $3.99/lb! Now I have cherries to snack on at work. 

Today is chest and triceps day. I‘m so ready for it! Once this week is over, I will know for sure that I‘m back to my old self. Thanks for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

Time To Discipline Myself

Greetings everyone!

It’s June and our plans to settle have been dashed for now. We are once again delayed, and I can’t wait anymore. I wanted to be in a place where I’m relaxed and where I feel like I can achieve anything. But I’m not at that place right now and I can’t allow that immobilizes me any longer.

I need to be more disciplined in the way that I eat and exercise. I have to really FORCE myself to go to the gym at times that I don’t want to. I thought back to the times when I was a gym rat and no matter what time of day it was, I was getting my time in.

Now if I get home at night, even though the gym closes at 12 am, I don’t want to go. The most enjoyable times that I feel motivated to go are 12 pm – 1 pm and that’s impossible. The times I work are from 8:30 to 5 pm. I have to find time after work. Every so often I don’t go because Star and I are tired from the day but that shouldn’t be my excuse. Drink a pre-workout and get going!

I enjoy the ones from Amino Energy. They are delicious, and they don’t hurt Star’s stomach. Sometime this week I will go and get a tub. My goal is to go every day. My minimum is 3 days a week. I will place my concentration on strength training. I always fall back on cardio once I don’t go for a while. 

I need to find a good workout I can follow. If you have any suggestions let me know. Thank you so much for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

Tennis

Last night, I went to play tennis with my friends and it felt great! Running after the ball after it pass me when I thought I hit it was funny. I do have to take some strength away from swings though because I hit them too high. It went over the fence at one point. I can’t wait to get better at playing. There were people on the other side of us and they were hitting the back and forth and made me feel like a kid compared to their skills. I wanna get like that too! Then it would be a real workout. I burned 327 last night yay! I want to do more workouts at home but I’m so busy with projects. >.< I wish I had enough time to do home workouts. Oh well, I’m trying my best with the little time I have.
