20 Jun Transparent pt. 1
As promised I am committing to share my #SummerofFit journey and be transparent with the readers for 2 reasons. 1 being, how do you appropriately promote fitness publications and challenges if you not at your best. 2, it’s a real account. I am not sending myself off to a camp/ farm and isolating myself for all the temptations of the world.
Well, let’s get into it…
This is a journey and I am only 3 weeks in! For those who know me, you know I have 2 major issues. I don’t eat right and I don’t eat enough. I actually enjoy working out. I don’t enjoy how sore I am most of the time but I do enjoy working out. Right now I am sitting here with my legs feeling like lead.
So what have I noticed already???
A few of my issues are habit based and mental. One being fast/ fried food. This is completely fed by my impatience! When I am at home cooking, the food is sooo much better than what I am buying. I love to cook but I am impatient. When I am hungry, I want to eat.
I am also learning that I am not as young as I use to be, my body does not recover like it use to. My legs take about 3 days to recover, which actually means they never recover cause I am in the gym training every other day! I am getting stronger though and I am loving seeing to see that unfold. To watch my self over the weeks be the weakest in the group with the 5 pound weights, to move up to using the 10 and 15 pound weights. I am not knocking down the 15 likes the rest of my group just yet, but I am in the room.
My support system is cool, except some of us seem to have weak moments at the same time. So that day that I want Popeyes or Lee’s and I need someone to tell me no and drive in the other direction, they are feeling weak too. I don’t beat myself up about I just can’t do those things multiple days in a row.
I turn 30 in just over a month. So I have picked up a couple 30 goals! One is 30 miles over 30 days so I will be starting that on 7.3. I have also decided to try and burn 30k calories! I have to start that today because that is a high goal. Definitely going to have to do some double workouts to get that in.
I haven’t taken my starting out picture nor did I weigh in today so I will have all that for you next week! I want someone else to take my pics, so that is why they haven’t been done. And I am weighing in for a competition on Sunday and next week so I will possibly share my weight with you then.
