Hey Y’all heeeyyy… so really quick ( my laptop is on 8% lol ) just an update. I went to the gym to meet with my trainer. The initially plan was to do a 30 min workout and then from there decide whether or not he would be MY TRAINER for 90 days. Me and my cousin were originally going to travel this journey with this particular gym and trainer (possibly) together but it ended up just being me which is okay, sometimes you gotta do you and sometimes that requires you to do that alone. So in my car before I walked into the gym I already knew that my answer to lawton (my trainer) would be yes. I had to…..I couldnt wait around neither can I rely on others opinions of the details regarding it. It’s my fitness journey for a reason whether it is a success or a failure, its all learning. I definitely learned that I can’t follow people, I have to be led to make my own calls, my own decisions according to the divine will of God, so into the gym I went. Boy was I nervous, I didn’t know what exactly to expect. He was honestly surprised to see me lol cause I was quiet during our initial meet last week. We start with him seeing what I could do. He had me doing push ups, planks, pull ups, squats with weights, and this thing where I threw a weight ball down and picked it up as fast as I could. It was indeed a workout. Uh-oh (5%) lol okay. After all of that I received a diet plan where he made sure he incorporated things that I will not only eat but actually like. Leaving the the gym, I felt hopeful excited about another “marathon” eager to see the change. Today though I am SORE all of my upper body folks and my thighs lawd are TIGHT AND SORE. I am moving around as if I weigh way more than I actually weigh. So as my laptop is now at 4% I am planning on running a hot bathe and soaking and relaxing, but I just wanted to update you all on my fitness journey.. this is me now I can’t wait to see what I will be like in 90days
Hello!! so its day three and I am honestly feeling ….good and tired. Last night was our first official meeting with our soon-to-be trainer.We weighed in, our bodies were scanned, and we sat down to talk about cost, workout, and diet layouts. He was honestly VERY TALKATIVE and it sounded as if he really knew his stuff AND he really was passionate about it. It honestly got overwhelming when he started laying things out ESPECIALLY when it came to those prices. My face clearing showed that even with my mask. A lot thoughts started and is still going through my brain. I want to invest in myself but as a member of the working class of the united states of America, it’s not easy. Life happens. But then I am like where’s my faith? I set these goals for a reason. Sacrifice comes with achieving goals right?! I am going back and forth about investing in myself not only physically but also financially. A trainer yall can be pricey and that’s a leap for me to take. I believe that I would definitely commit cause I don’t pay with my money honey never have but its just whether to take that leap..or not lol. A lot of people have there say which is good to weigh out but at the end..what do I say??. As I sit and think about it, this has forced me to make that budget spreadsheet that is also a January goal and go from there…we shall see.
Pray my strength lol
Day one. Our commitment was made to start our fitness journey’s on January 5th 2021. My commitment included:
- Finding a gym and going and working out
- No fast-food
- Less sugar intake
- Less carbs
After work, I met my cousin at the gym. I had arrived before the cousin so I parked and waited. As I am waiting, all I see are big bulky men walking in and out the gym. NO FEMALES. Instantly I got nervous because I am like “well I don’t want to be the only female at the gym. I don’t want no one looking at me..especially all these men” now, don’t get me wrong there were DEFINITELY some that (insert emoji here)were you know. I was nervous that’s all. Contrary to popular belief, I am quite shy im not the type that likes to be all in front of people like that especially strangers let alone a bunch a men who probably not paying me any mind. Once my cousin came we both walked in and met with our trainer lalton. He was very friendly and he told us his fitness story which by looking at him you wouldn’t believe. After that we set up a time to get our bodies scanned..which is on Thursday so we can go ahead and get started!! this is scary and exciting at the same time. I am glad I am not doing this alone otherwise I would be screwed lol so here’s to yet ANOTHER MARATHON!
