8/26/17 Made my day off count. ✌🏽🤓✊🏽 oohhhhhrrrraahhhhhhhhhh.


Back to back:
1 min jump rope
1 min goblet squats with resistance bands
1 min bicycle/abs

Rest 1 min and repeat x 10

Self disciple is no joke. I hate making myself workout sometimes, but lately like I mentioned, it’s coming back to me. I miss where I used to be mentally when I was going to the gym all the time. I felt thriving and confident. So, I’m going to continue my fitness journey and kick ass!!!! Even on a depressive or anxiety filled day, I know I can count on getting a ducking sweat in and feeling magnificent afterwards. It’s awesome. Cheers to Saturday. ✌🏽♥️♥️♥️💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

8/20/17 Sunday hiit w/some light sprinkles of rain

Lol. So I have sundays off and this time, I decided I would make my ass be productive and workout. Did a combo of jump rope intervals with banded criss cross crunches, wide leg squats, and core lifts. -10x 1 min as much as I can intervals back to back. Only took one rest, my heart is definitely starting to feel healthier and stronger when I workout… that’s a great sign. ♥️✌🏽 I noticed I really enjoy creating workouts and doing them in my own back yard where I can be alone if I’m feeling anxiety and want to skip the gym. Helps for my mentally bad days.

8/16/17 848am Goal of morning: Try getting a sweat on!

Started my morning early by waking at 6am. I thought, what the hell, let’s try something different today! Lol. So I did a workout for 30 min with my pull up bar and yoga mat.

-I stretched for ten min.
- 3 sets squats bodyweight squeeze the stretch/hold form firm
-3sets back and forth
Pull ups assisted (negative style/focus on grip) burn out….
then yoga mat for 5 push-ups and hold plank (until burn out/drop)


Aight, I feel sweaty and gross now. But I want to observe how I feel today, versus other days where I never do this. I’m already feeling energized as I’m dancing around getting ready now. 😂😂🙌🏽✌🏽

8/15/17 another day to beat who I was yesterday. ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽 
I did HIIT TRAINING for 20 min.  
2 min at 7.5
2 min at 3.0 
1min at 7.5
1min at 3.0 until 20 min was up, went as hard as I could. I felt weak and dizzy after 19 min hit.  

Okay, confession Tumblr. I binge ate this past week with pizza and non fibrous carbs…. but when I checked scale, I’m still at 160lbs. My main concern is my dumbass 30lbs of fat I gained from my mental illness journey start. (When I first had my mental breakdown)  
I was comfortable at 130lbs, but I had more muscle, less fat so even though that seems like a lot, I was leaner and my jeans tell me so. -_-  

This proves to me that the scale means nothing. It’s how I’m feeling energy wise, mentally and physically. In order to see results I have to keep on track. I can’t create movement if I’m not even getting a workout in!  
To be completely transparent, this run sucked. I thought I was about to throw up a couple times, but I held it together. I have to practice cardio. I have to practice Hiit. I won’t just be amazing at it if I don’t fucking try!! Tomorrow will be a little easier!! Hell yeah.  
Lol. My new thing for this week…. I am not allowed to go home before the gym. I have to take my bag ready to go after work, and then at least if I didn’t do anything else, I at least got my workout in. Booyah
