I did it! It was a struggle but I made it to the gym this morning. My workout was shorter then usual because this head cold is lingering and a girl can only sniffle and cough for so long before other people get concerned 😅 not for me, for themselves lol
Anyways, I’m gonna try focusing more on arms and upper body cause I am weak as shit in that department 😏 hope you all have a lovely day 💕

I’m all about that gym life now 💪 no bully is gonna stop me 👊 thanks sooooo much for all of your kind words 💕💕💕 Fitblr is honestly the best online community I’ve been apart of! I don’t let people like that get to me or hurt me. Honestly it just grinds my gears. But I’ve blocked them now after they sent a third ask, but I’m not gonna answer. I’m not getting through to them so why let them keep being a bully to me 🤷‍♀️ I just hope that they don’t bully someone else 🙇‍♀️

Gonna be honest I skipped the gym a lot this week 😔 and I really missed it! So last night I said to myself, you’re going at 6am no matter what. And even though it was tough getting out of bed this morning, it’s probably the best decision I’ll make today.
Also I practically had the place to myself this early on a Saturday 😅

Gonna be honest, I’ve been feeling down for the last little bit and I’m not gonna lie, it’s because of my weight. It’s stupid, but I feel like I haven’t made any progress since April and I’m scared that my weight is gonna slowly climb back up there (even though I lost two pounds this week.)
Please send me all of your self love tips 💕

That shine on my face is sweat 😭 there was way too many people at the gym to take a selfie 😏 so I took one right when I got home (excuse the messy room)
A accomplished a few things today. I did 5 mins on the stair master (a personal best!) and I did legs after 💪 and for a non-scale victory, this sweater used to be really tight, but now it’s got some give 😁

Today's routine:

✖️10 minutes of treadmill cardio at 3 incline to warm up. 2 minutes brisk walking at 3.5, 6 minutes of jogging at 5, 2 minutes cooldown at 3.5.
✖️Full-body weight room. Two sets of eight reps on each machine, highest weight I can lift. The machines I use include: leg press, chest press, lat pulldowns, shoulder press, leg curls, bicep curls, and tricep press. There are three more I can’t think of the names for right this second, but they work legs, shoulder/chest, and abs/back.
✖️30 minutes of treadmill cardio starting at at 3 incline. 5 minutes 3.0, 5 minutes 3.5, 10 minutes at 3.5 with 6 incline, then put incline back down to 3. 5 minutes 3.5, 5 minutes 3.0, then two minutes cooldown at 3.0 without incline.

This is my usual weight routine, and I typically do it once or twice a week. The weather has been so nice lately that I’ve been doing a ton more cardio though, so it’s been on the backburner for a few weeks. Felt good to pick up some heavy shit this morning.

(Also I will re-format this to be a bit neater when I’m on the computer this weekend.)

Today is not a good mental health day. My work had a going away party for me last night and I did not watch what I ate or drank. I had a really good time and don’t want to regret it but I just feel like I’m losing all of the progress I’m making. One part of me is just saying to not eat until lunch time, the other part of me is saying to accept it, it was fun, but try better today. And then there’s a small part of me that says just fuck it all and eat whatever you want.
TLDR: One part of me wants to be thin, the other to be strong, and one small part that just wants to give up.
But I went hard at the gym, so I’m not giving up on that quite yet….

My alarm went off at 5:10 this morning and I fully intended to go back to sleep, even though I had clothes laid out to go to the gym.

About ten minutes later I said “fuck it, I’m not becoming that person” and I hauled my ass out of bed and went to the damn gym. I’m glad I did. I feel amazing.

This is not always an easy lifestyle and it involves a whole lot of discipline and doing shit that I really, REALLY don’t want to do. It is 100% worth it. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

If you had told me a year ago that I would be this person, I would have died laughing. And yet, here I am.
