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)

The Book of ME

Stack-of-books

 

Yes there is a book of ME, a book of YOU too. I have, as of today begin to look at myself as a book.  My cover the outer me as I am transforming does not define me ( for those that get it twisted).  My inner is transforming daily with my workout and each day is  a new chapter bringing brilliance and joy to my Transformation (which is my volume ’till December 31).  Each day gets better.

Today I had a super great workout, 2 miles on the treadmill, 20 minutes on the elliptical, weights with a Beachbody giant ( well he is really buffed) Sagi Kalev- Bulk Chest and great ab workout with Shaun T- Cize, Crazy 8 Abs.

Working out at home has so many benefits for me and most of all I no longer have an excuse. Of course working out is only a fraction of being healthy and fit- as  a reminder I, we need hydration, sleep, and the nutrition.  I am still as stated many times trying to stay 80/20 in healthy eating but I am honestly at 75/25 -transforming.

To a great workout week, healthy eating and transformation,
