When you finish your workout and your arms are still shaking you know it was a good one. ••••• I always joke about my “spaghetti noodle arms” because all my life, I’ve just had small arm muscles. I was a competitive swimmer and soccer player since I was 4 years old. I had the legs and quads of an athlete and the shoulders of a swimmer, but I was lacking in other areas. This program changes daily and helps me target all those areas I have forgotten about! It makes you use muscles you never even knew you had! •••• So this is my goodbye, adios, peace out to my spaghetti noodle arms and hello to my journey of building arms and a better me!
Well I met with the trainer this morning and left feeling informed and motivated. She explained things to me that I’ve never heard in my entire life. I’ve been going to gyms for 10 years and no one ever took the time to explain those things to me. She walked beside me and watched my heart rate and my form and taught me new moves I’ve never even seen before. She took my measurements, BMI and we talked about my goals. I did some walking, planks, push-ups, and squats with her, then finished with 20 min on the elliptical. I check back with her in 4 weeks and CANT wait to see the changes! I’ve finally nailed down my weekly routine and am excited to stick to it and enjoy my rest days too! I also stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in a long time. By the end of 4 weeks, I’m determined to win my own DietBet, see some NSV’s, and drop a few inches too!
K Post: A couple of years ago I switched over to sheep milk yogurt. I was forced to leave my much beloved Greek yogurt when my skin decided to start changing and I was getting pimples like crazy! I reject pimples in my 30’s - been there, done that, right!? I tried soy yogurt, almond yogurt, coconut yogurt - and I gave a to those on the taste scale. But this sheep milk yogurt has really made my taste buds and skin happy. If you’re stuck, try this one! (I’ve found it consistently at Whole Foods and New Seasons). #ReflectiveMoment: sometimes our favorite foods all of a sudden make us feel bad, either in our tummies or our skin - keep up the hunt for alternatives - and be open to trying new and different things!
