    The GYM

    The GYM

    Let’s talk about gym memberships! One of the toughest things to come across while shopping. I try just about everything to try reject the sales people from avoiding eye contact, running, dodging. If could do cart wheels I would! Once they I do manage to stop me I try to make excuse after excuse. Well the day had to come when they finally caught me and sold me a membership and a few training sessions. It was a blessing in disguise now that I realize and see. I loved my trainer she really helped me get comfortable with working out especially at the gym! Who would of known?! I lost weight and gained some muscle! She and working out really gave me an appreciation for working out and life! I was truly happy during those weigh ins and coming each week and seeing results! She gave me alot of tips and was patient with me. I would highly recommend using a trainer or at least to help you get comfortable with the equipment! It’s definitely a lifestyle but it ended up being something that I wanted to continue to keep in my life. I try to go at least 2 times a week and daily at home! Booty bands are my best friend! Add them to your exercise routine I’ve yet to carry them with me but it’s a great idea! Squats are another one of my favorites for the booty! My current goal is to work on a bigger booty. Then of course work on abs this has been really tuff for me especially when it comes to the pooch! Lower tummy area is the hardest but I have been seeing results lately! When I do get discouraged I remember all the tips and encouragement my trainer gave! If you can work out with a friend please do so! Heard it helps especially to be kept accountable! Plant based proteins are my favorite with oat milk! Oatly oat milk and Vega Chocolate protein are my favorites currently! Some of my other favorites equipments and highly recommend are the treadmill, elliptical, and leg press! Jumping into squats on padded boxes where the hardest when I just started using them. But eventually they became somewhat easier and gave me a great workout. Let’s talk about leg press machine it has become my go to gym equipment I’ve managed to push up to 290 pounds! Pretty impressed with myself and always try to come up with more goals for the gym. At some points I felt overwhelmed as to what to what to do a the gym. Some tips I would recommend and that really helped were just setting days for certain parts like just legs Or just arms . As well as using workout routines that I had on my phone. I found great set of workouts online and others that my trainer had posted on Instagram. Instagram is a great place to find great workouts and tips! As well as downloading workouts apps! One of my favorites and would recommend is Tone It Up. It has a little of everything from like yoga poses. I love yoga I’d like to set a new goal to add it to my morning routine! Let’s just say the gym is like a second home now! Working out has become almost second nature and the other day I lifted my self up just using my arms off a chair! I’ve become strong and a bit confident working out! Outdoors hiking highly recommend as well, you burn a lot calories get to see great landscapes and views! Biking outdoors and downhills also most joyous times of my life! Try it please but be safe out there. Hope I helped you in some way. Tip if you’d like!!

    Running For Rewards

    Running For Rewards

    Sometimes, if not all, we fail to locate a glimmer of motivation in order to step outside and run as if our lives depend on it. That's something only a collective group of people are able to do without thinking twice about petty things like most of us do. Say, for example, things like a spot of rain, or a slight lump on our heel. A lot of us convince ourselves that because of these minor speed bumps, running isn't supposed to become a reality during our daily routines. A few, on the other hand, tackle these obstacles with brute force and smash through the fitness wall with little hesitation. If, however, like me you struggle to so much as remove a single brick, then you need the motivational break, my friend.

    Staying Fit with a Busy Schedule

    Staying Fit with a Busy Schedule

    “Staying Snatched” is part of the goal right? Right. But it is so difficult for us to balance our busy schedules while still maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle! Our attention is being pulled in every direction possible. Still, that’s no excuse to allow our physical well-being to slide. If I’m being completely honest, physical wellbeing is something I adapt my entire life around. Why? Aside from Heart Disease being a leading cause of death in my community, I aspire to create generational cycles that will allow our physical care to be an area we accept “crucial accountability.”

    Do You Love Your Warmup?

    Do You Love Your Warmup?

    Next time you step into a gym, take a moment to look around and note anyone who jumps right into a workout without warming up. Maybe they did a couple of light stretches and some arm swings to loosen up the shoulders, but that would've taken maybe a minute or two and in all likelihood it didn't do anything for them.
