Did You Know

believe

Good morning, afternoon, evening, just depends on when you read this post, I want it to be good for you in all aspects of your life.

Did you know, you have the control to stop, start, slow down a fitness program.  I’m saying this because I have heard in the last week so many of my friends, family and coworkers say, “ I really need to get to a regular routine in working out or I just don’t know if I can do it” and “I am not sure how you work this in your day”.

To begin with I want it, my fitness journey and change is I want it.  How bad do you want it. Because I want it I have to put in the time that works best for me to get it, for certain I can’t wish on it and close my eyes to the thought and it happens.  Because I want it I find the time, it may be 3AM, 9AM or 8PM.  If you keep making excuses, you will continue to get the same results.

It’s it too late to begin, NO.  Fitness has no limits on beginning as long as you know your limits, and not overload your self, but for certain you must BEGIN and whatever fitness regimen you’re in you must TRUST THE PROCESS.  Results don’t come after one or two workouts and does not come with a workout once a month or every other month.  There is commitment and consistency, both are required as well as nutrition but that’s anothe blog.

Did you know ….YOU HAVE CONTROL OF THIS, so STOP the excuses and start making plans.  Yes replace your excuses with a plan the outcome will be satisfactory to you. So let’s begin.

Finding The Right Workout For ME

Finding my workouts for my fitness journey has taken me a minute, a long minute. I’d go to the gym, but it would not always fit into my work schedule, or mother schedule, daughter schedule.  Also there were days I’d go and just use what ever darn equipment I could and this was before my days of weight lifting.

I am not my any means knocking the gym, but a person as myself need guidance and a calendar to follow otherwise I am all over the place.  Do I get a good workout well……. and that is my answer.

Thanks to my finding Beachbody and ShaunT who was my first BB trainer I feel I am trainable and no longer just staggering about.  Did you know and maybe so, but I did not know they have workouts (over 700) yep, that you choose depending on your level of fitness that make you sweat and feel as if you’ve worked out for 2 hours.  Yes and yes, Yoga, Dance, Weights, Cardio, Weights and Cardio, and my favorite which I used at the beginning a what??? Yep they have that too a modifier until you can build up to a level for the “badassers”.  My name for the fittest of people .

My love for weights begin with beachbody, interested, give me a holla. But whatever workout you are doing make it the best because you are the best.

To a week of wokouts at your best.  Much love.

I Cried,I Smiled, I Rejoice

I cried, I smiled and I rejoice.  I feel GREAT.

Sunday I complete a workout Beachbody, of course.  80 Day Obsession with Autumn Calabrese.  This is an awesome phased work outs (3)  and each can be so challenging, but here is my story.  Three maybe four days into this workout, I threw in the towel,  and this was Phase I.  I could not do this, too challenging and too advanced of course I’ve worked out with Shaun T, but this was too too much, I thought.

I found myself, maybe because I felt as if I’d failed myself, not sure, but I did another day. I left weights and am a huge fan of Sagi  “Body Beast”, but these moves with weights, bands, sliders challenged me.

Sunday 15 April, I completed 80 Day Obsession, I cried. I had completed the workout I almost worked away from. The challenge outside of my comfort in movements.

Monday, 16 April, I smiled.  I measured myself and weighed for posting (challenge group). I was 18 pounds lighter and 12.25 inches shredded. I was so pleased I did not give up.

Tuesday, 17 April I rejoiced, did a happy dance.  Completing 80 Day Obsession was not an ending to  my goals it was a beginning to continue. Tuesday I begin ” A Week of Hard Labor” a Sagi- Body beast workout.

To say the least and  the most, challenge yourself when you  feel a workout maybe a bit much.  You too can cry (tears of joy), smile (success of change body image), rejoice (because you are now ready for another challenge)
