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:
- 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,
