Workout Wednesday.... And I'm Back!! Hopefully, for Good
Hey y'all!! Crazy, I
know, I’M BACK ON THIS THING, but I figured if I want to get serious about
this, the time is now!!
So, just to update
you on my life reeeeaaaaally quickly, I have moved out of my parents' house & am
currently living in my own apartment!! Yay!! I'm not sure if/when I will start
posting YouTube videos, but we will see. Those, honestly might not start for another
month or two, just depending on how crazy my schedule is going to be.
I am now living in
Lubbock, Texas and excited to start this upcoming fall semester as a Red
Raider at Texas Tech University! It's gonna be bomb, guys, seriously. Can't wait :)
Onto today's topic!!
I suppose you can
say the resurgence of this blog is a direct result of starting to get into a
better routine, now that I am living on my own. I moved here August 4th so I
haven't even really been here a week, buuut, I've got to start getting into
better shape to be healthy and pretty much just stop lazing around. I gave
myself some time, but now it's time to get serious!!
Today, I completed
the ToneItUp workout of the 5 daily moves, 40 min of cardio (broken down
into 10 minute increments on the elliptical machine) & Bikini Buns &
I'm pretty proud of
myself as I woke up early to get this all done before I ate breakfast. I will
say, working out & doing videos in the community gym is odd because when
people come in, they just stare. I brought my yoga mat and the day before, I had
headed to the print station at the community center (I know, so convenient for
an apartment complex) & printed out the main workout. I wrote down the
daily moves and "40 min cardio" on the sheet.
As I am currently
pretty out of shape, I will not lie, I did the 5 daily moves first, then the
workout, and then the cardio (which again, I broke into segments. I did 10 min because I knew I could do that from going on the elliptical yesterday).
As I had completely
the TIU workout for yesterday as well, I was a little sore from yesterday so it was a struggle. Plus, just having not worked out in a while, it was hard to get everything done without keeling over and dying, haha. School starts in about 3 weeks, so I
want to already have my routine established so that way, it's not too hard to
stray from it!!
As for food, well,
you'll have my week's load of meals on…well, we shall see. But, I'll tell you
what I have to eat:
Grainy, whole wheat bread for
The cinammon raisin swirl
Some pre-packaged chocolate
A loaf of french bread (so
much bread… it's so bad)
Crunchy, generic peanut
Garlic & herb chicken
sliced from the deli
Smoked sharp cheddar also
sliced from the deli
1 tomato sliced
Cauliflower, for cauliflower
1 box of stuff to make
2 things of ramen
1 box of frosted mini-wheats
A container for water
And I think that's
it… I had more stuff, but I've already eaten it. I know, I know, still not
supremely awesome but money is tight around here as I'm in college and on my
own for the first time!! Hopefully, I can get a bartending job soon or
something else soon so that way I can get some better groceries.
As always, if you have any comments, questions, concerns, just want to talk, pleasepleaseplease comment below or contact me at any of my social medias! I'll update them so that way all links are active. To be totally honest though, I'm much more likely to answer anything on Snapchat so just lemme know!! Love y'all!! XOXO
Until next time!
