Finding My Fitspiration

Good morning sunshines! I start a strict meal plan & workout routine this Thursday. Kelsey & I are doing it together which is a bonus because I always excel with a partner, especially when it’s my gym-loving best friend.

I decided to hit the gym early today before work. It’s 5:30 a.m & I don’t know how people do this! Luckily there is a lot on my mind so it was fairly easy to wake up. I am still deciding if I should go all natural or purchase a pre-workout. Right now I’m sticking to 2 cups of black coffee & a plain rice cake with some all natural peanut butter (dying for bananas right now) Do you use pre-workout?

It’s leg day & I tend to feel a little self conscious in the weight area when I’m solo. I’m looking forward to gaining confidence in that area. What are your favorite ways to stay motivated to stick to your routine & healthy food choices? Do you use a pre-workout or do you stick to good ole’ black coffee? I’d love your feedback.¬†They say that it takes around 3 weeks to form a habit… Here’s to day one :)

Pre-workout day 1

“It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world. Give it 12 weeks. Don’t quit.”

I sat straight up in bed, it was pitch black, and I had nothing to say but ‘fuc*’

(How ladylike)

For no reason at all. Sometimes when dreams & reality clash it’s a strange awakening. I guess that is kind of what I experienced this morning. My makeup is on from yesterday & my hair looks like I never went to bed. I’ve already finished a can of coconut juice, a cinnamon roll, & taken all of my vitamins. I fell asleep relieved & rose covered with a cape of nerves & a bit of wonder.¬† I suppose we all have days where we go into deeper thought then our typical day. It doesn’t necessarily deserve to be classified as a ‘bad mood’, just a different mood. No matter what I’m feeling, I’m simply grateful I have the ability to do so. That I can express my emotions in more ways then even I have explored. My options are endless, the world has given me a life of no limits. Just as it has for you. To live everyday with a peaceful mind… That is what I hope to do. To give each heartbeat credit beyond a thud, your strong legs that carry you respect, and to feel brave enough to allow your mind a bit of freedom when society pushes nothing but structure.
