I ran for the first time in several weeks today, and it felt so good but sucked so bad all at the same time! Before summer break was over some of my close friends and I felt the need to have a girls day, which was much needed. Lets just say this group of ladies and I all share one (well maybe a lot) of things in common. We love fitness! They keep me grounded and push me when I need it the most (which is always). They are a part of my fitness journey and a big part of my life. I don't know what I would do without these ladies! I love each of you so much.
My August goals were to 1. Loose 20lbs (which wont happen due to injury) but I am still pushing to loose as much as possible. 2. Implement more clean eating 3. 6 workouts a week 4. work on increasing mileage on my runs 5. Hit my macros EVERY day 6. MEAL PREP
All of my goals for the month are right on track, something about knowing all of my food is weighed to perfection for the next day just makes me giddy. Take that macros! This lifestyle of mine takes work and time but it is OH SO worth it. Lets talk action shots...picture like this used to make me cringe! Now..I'm like so what! 200lb deadlift after a killer leg day the day before..I will take that. No complaints here. Lifting heavy makes feel like a beast. However I am learning the importance of high rep/low weight sets as well...something I need to implement more in my workouts.
One thing that remains the same...day by day..if you have a negative mind no matter what it is in regards to you are just setting yourself up for failure. You have to know that you will succeed, everyones journey is different which makes it beautiful. Watching my body change is definitely rewarding but knowing my whole outlook on life has changed is the icing on the cake.
Many of you have asked about macros, nutrition, etc...I will be writing a post about that soon! Comment below if there is anything else you would like to see on the blog :) .
