Workout and Word of the Day: #49

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I think I am starting to realize the connection between my food and my results.  I also got a little reality check which is a true blessing.  My boyfriend and I have different body types.  He is tall with a high metabolism and is able to build muscle very easily.  His overall bodytype is forgiving and he knows exactly how many push-ups and sit-ups he needs to do to get back on track.

I believe that I am an endomorph.  I am curvy and retain fat really well.  Haha I am trying to frame this in a positive light 😉 I am also 5 feet so the weight piles on rapidly when I am not conscious about what I eat.  I thankfully build muscle well and need to stay active to remain sane.

I think that I have always known this, but I chose to go with the flow and think “I can work this off with exercise.”  The fact is that he can eat the hot cheetos and cheez-its.  Can is different from should though and I should not eat those.

We have had a few nights of munchies and I have noticed that my cravings are the worst after 6 pm.  I decided to kick my butt today with total body HIIT!

Workout of the Day: 30 Minute HIIT + Standing Abs!

I love HASfit  workouts because they do the workouts with you and offer great modifications that are still challenging.  They are always positive, uplifting, and inspire me to do my best:

One of my newest goals is to tone my core and get rid of the bloating in a natural way.  I know that this will greatly depend on my nutrition, but some core work should also help!


Word of the Day:

conversant- adjective

  1. Having knowledge or experience.

I worked my butt off with these workouts and afterwards I felt a little discouraged because my belly still feels bloated.  Then I reflected on my dietary choices over the past few days.  I don’t want to workout super hard and not get results and when I make poor choices with my nutrition it slows down my progress.

That was the moment when I realized that my health and fitness is my responsibility.  I cannot blame anyone else or any past circumstances for getting to where I am today.  And if I don’t like it, I can change it!

THAT IS EMPOWERING!!!!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana xoxoxo
