Lift Comp!

Screenshot_20180411-170655.jpg

Hey homies how’s it going? I’m writing this a little late because my workout and fasting have changed a little bit so I didn’t get up in time to write early. I have really been working on my sleep because I know I need to focus on getting better sleep! Anyway, I am writing now to say happy hump day for you and yours and let’s have a wonderful rest of the week! Of course, I am going to update yall on what I’ve been doing!

I never workout at the gym on Wednesday and I’m glad I don’t because it was super busy.lol. The people at my gym are really nice and helpful but there are just so many people doing so many different machines you feel like just turning back and going home! Of course, you know I didn’t do that I was actually motivated by all the people and I had one of the best workouts I have ever had! I mean my back was killing me but in a good way and I swear me and this 70-year-old lady have issues because every time I did an exercise she did it. I mean movement for movement and I really got into a heated lift off against a senior citizen and honestly, I’m not sure I won! What I do know is that woman is a beast and if I’m like her when I’m that age then I will be super happy! Tomorrow I have chest again and then I have to do some makeup cardio I missed yesterday! I’ll be on my regular schedule tomorrow and I think I will be feeling a little better not having a liftoff.lol.

Listen I have noticed that I have a secret weapon if I miss the gym because sometimes your schedule just doesn’t allow me to hit the gym. That weapon is fasting! So this whole fasting thing has been the single most powerful tool I have found in my fat loss journey even more than Keto. Although I didn’t workout yesterday I extended my fast from 18 hours to 24 hours! This allowed my body to do what it was designed to do which is to clean my insides like a pit crew and get me running at optimum level! Fasting has allowed me to feel in control of my eating problem and it has truly been the key to any success I have had so far! Simply put when your body has no food after digestion it begins to operate all your interior organs with stored fat! Man, are you serious? I’m sure tons of you knew that but not me and now that I know I will continue to use intermittent fasting as a tool to achieve my ultimate health. If you all get time please ask or google fasting and do some research it really is eye-opening!

 

On the diet front, I broke my fast with some wings from Longhorn and a delicious sweet kale salad! If you know me you know I really dig this place so it’s no surprised I ordered some for today and for my dinner tonight! I may be single-handedly keeping them in business and at the very least I know they have had to order more poultry! It’s really amazing thank goodness it’s low carb I would be in real trouble! We have been playing around with some fun quick food choices and I have a few pictures so yall can see. Don’t let your diet get too boring or overwhelming just relax and buy things that will allow you to keep to whatever way you plan to eat to crush your goals!

 

That’s all I have for today I apologize but I’m going to Cali next week and I have been getting ready to roll so my mind has been so focused on the trip that I haven’t been as consistent as I would like! I’ll make a better effort I promise. Have an amazing day today and enjoy the rest of the week because ready or not it’s coming.lol

Tripped Up

Screenshot_20180330-072421.jpg

Happy Friday everyone! I must admit to being very tired this morning and I should have gone back to bed this morning but you know how it is, sometimes you have to drag yourself out of bed and just go! I’m up and at ’em now so no excuses right? If you are celebrating the holiday this weekend I wish you fun and safe travels and even if you aren’t I still wish you the same.lol

 

The gym was empty again yesterday and I got in a great workout pretty much by myself so no complaints here. My chest and shoulders are a little sore but I really pushed hard thru my workout and I added onto the volume of my reps so I feel great about that! Currently, I am also doing a 100 squats a day challenge so my legs are really feeling the burn because that along with my amped up cardio and stairs have put a ton more on my knees and legs. I’m not complaining I’m sure that it will pay off and I’ll be happy that I am getting more lower body work! My inner thighs are already feeling firmer and more flexible so I’m really happy about that! Today I’m back to doing back/biceps along with my squats and Fitbit step goal. If there is one thing I really need to work on it’s creating a pre-workout routine for warming up my muscles, I have really been slacking on that at my shoulders are starting to pay the price.lol.

Screenshot_20180330-072715.jpg

 

My diet is going great but I certainly hit a snag of my own doing! I tell you guys everything so I have to tell you that Monday night I had a mini binge with a box of donuts and I had a few pieces of bread and of course I never eat bread anymore and it didn’t turn out too good. I didn’t get sick but when I stepped on the scale this past Wednesday it said I gained like 7 pounds! Now while I know I didn’t gain that much and that it’s probably water it sucks because I know that I made the decision to eat like that and it’s just not worth gaining weight! I’ve been doing so well and it’s not a big deal other than it’s not how I want to do things anymore. I’m o.k with having a treat every now and again but right now I’m on an aggressive stretch of my fat loss journey! I set a few unrealistic goals and I have been crushing them so far so when my results come down to earth I get a little disappointed. It happens to everyone and I haven’t missed a workout or eaten bad since Monday. In fact, I have been in a caloric deficit even lower than normal because now that I’m back to my routine I’m just not as hungry, probably because of all the water from those damn donuts! Life happens and I am not down on myself but I really am pissed that my goal and the timetable I set may not happen because I went a little backward ya know?

Screenshot_20180330-072600.jpg

 

Although I am a little disappointed I am still changed! I am not the person I used to be and I won’t stop doing what I have been doing to this point! I will keep making healthy choices and taking control of my eating and habits! Having a cheat here and it isn’t bad but it is for me because of the goals I set for myself. My goals are so high that I really don’t like any setbacks at all!.lol. I’ve become obsessed yall.lol. For me, it’s a good thing because I really want to be better than I was the day before and it’s just a personal thing between me and my old self!

 

I love you all very much and I know that life can get hard sometimes but keep your head up and remember that storms will come but you can overcome anything! Have an extraordinary day and weekend!

Family Matters

Screenshot_20180328-064310.jpg

Well, good morning homies! It’s hump day and I apologize for the delay I have been doing a lot of family stuff and I got caught up in that arena! The family had a scare because my girl’s aunt had to be rushed to the hospital but it looks like for now at least she is getting better! Loretta is one of my favorite people on this planet so I had to make sure my girl got a chance to be there for the fam, that’s what all this stuff is about! Family first, second to god in my book! I’m here this morning and your reading this so let’s get on with the get down!

Screenshot_20180325-205109.jpg

 

Monday and Tuesday I actually got to work out before all of the family issues happened and they were quality workouts!(I love you aunt Loretta stay up in there!). my gym squad at the gym was completely absent and that’s weird for me to be in the gym by myself especially at like 1 p.m. in the day! I’m sure the crew will be back to it tomorrow, they are just people that workout at the same time I do but I don’t really know them personally but hey it feels weird when I don’t see my familiar gym folks. lol. Today is my all day cardio day and I started it off this morning with 30 flights of stairs! I have to do 35 today because I have to go up every week so I still got 5 more I owe, then I have my 100 squats to do and then my steps for the Fitbit and then swimming: so hopefully I will be able to get everything in! That’s the plan, what y’all got going on today, I’d love to hear what everyone is working on!

20180327_145610.jpg

 

So if you follow me on Instagram you know I had a big carb day on Monday night and I mean it was a big one! Honestly, I don’t regret it one bit because I know I’m an addict and I know that means I have to get right back to me and that’s what I did. Tuesday I had a hard fasted workout and I ate really light and all keto! As a sugar addict, I have to be very careful when I eat a few because like a true feen it could compound and turn into a week or a month and several months, I got issues.lol. Having a cheat meal or day is something you just have to play around with and see how it works for you. Just remember it’s the exception, not the rule and you must get back to doing you as soon as possible because fat loss is slow and steady but fat gain is damn near instant in my book. lmao! O.k. that’s not completely true but it feels like it for me. Today I will break my fast with my Keto coffee and some bacon and shredded chicken! Then for my last meal, I will probably have a green smoothie and bowl of Shirataki noodles and chicken! The plan is to make a keto friendly lime cheesecake tonight for dessert but I’ll definitely keep it low to no carbs and have just 1 piece, I’ll let ya’ll know how it turns out as normal! We should be getting my keto granola and that grass-fed meat order tomorrow so I’ll be showing that off as well because I can’t wait to try both! We right back at it!

 

Screenshot_20180328-064422.jpg

 

Do me a favor ya’ll, make a decision to be happy today! We all go through trials and tribulations but making a decision to be happy will help you to get thru anything. Don’t walk over all these blessings in your life and focus on what’s wrong today. Today keep in mind that you got a gift of fresh air and life today and that should carry you far today! No one is promised anything in this life but happiness is something we can have every single day and I wish that for all of you today! Let everyone know you’re happy too, that joy will help others get thru their day as well! Trust me it’s hard to have a rough day with a person who is positive and happy! I love you all and I appreciate your place in this world and in my life! Have a fabulous day!

I’m Doing What?

Middle of the week and the first 2 days blew by pretty quick! It is snowing here and they just called school off for like the 10th time so far this year! It’s not their fault because where we live the main road are usually o.k but in this county, there are some really tough back country roads that people live on and they are just unreachable in those areas! I personally love snow so it’s no big deal for me but the kids are going to be going to school all summer to make up all these damn days they are missing! It is a glorious day and I get to spend time with my family and the fact that they are safe is all that really matters so it’s all good!

Screenshot_20180321-061254.jpg

 

Yesterday I hit the gym at my regular time and killed the workout! Whenever I work back and biceps I always seem to work so much harder than when I do chest and biceps. Yesterday was no different because I was sweating like a pig while I pumped the weights! I’m telling you guys if you limit the amount of time you give yourself between reps it doesn’t matter so much how heavy the weight is you really can feel a difference! The volume of reps I get in is insane and I notice that it feels like I’m getting a little cardio while I lift! Today I’m off from the gym but it’s a full cardio day which means I’ll be hitting those damn stairs and walking around as much as possible. We didn’t get to swim last night so I may go to the gym tonight and do an additional cardio session because I have to pick my girl up late from work tonight! Last week when I did stairs I got to about 20 flights so the deal is every week I have to do few more. Today I’ll see if I can spread them bad boys out throughout the day for real, they absolutely kill my legs but they are a great cardio workout and the handles on the sides help to cheat a little if I’m winded.lol.

 

 

O.k. so I was waiting a few days before I said anything because I wasn’t 100 percent sure I was going to try doing it but I am. I’m doing a week of MEAT ONLY this week. I’ve been doing some research about the Carnivore diet which consists of mostly meats and little to no veggies and carbs. There is no way I can see myself adopting this way of eating for the long term however I have been very curious about some of the claims that people who eat this way say they experience. I’ve heard that they feel less inflammation in their joints and they experience a greater clarity and strength throughout their day. I figured since I’ve lowered my carbs to 30g and below a week that this isn’t that much of a difference for me! Today is day 3 and I have to tell you while it’s far too early to declare how effective it is I will say that I feel hella light this morning! My workouts haven’t been affected that much because I usually workout fasted anyway. The surprising thing to me is I’m not experiencing any heartburn or constipation which I figured were going to be side effects. It’s certainly helped with my water consumption so far this week! I can’t front yall other than it being a tad boring in the food variety department I feel really great this morning! They tell me that the 3rd day is kind of difficult so I’m going to wait and see but I’ll certainly stick it out until weigh-in day and see how I feel.

 

 

I checked the calendar and I have exactly 5 weeks before I take the long and adventurous road trip to visit my kids in California! I am so very happy to be able to see them because it feels like such a long time because I live so far. I will be working my ass off to be in the best shape I can possibly be in so that I can show them a great time on my visit! I love them so very much and they make me feel so very blessed! If you wanna know why I am so happy all the time it’s because I am blessed so much with great kids and an amazing fiance’. It’s not me, it’s all of them and God has chosen me to be apart of these wonderful folks lives and I wouldn’t want to be anyone else on this earth! It’s not the fat loss journey that defines me it’s these wonderful people along with my family and friends that humble me and bring me joy! The key to life isn’t what we are striving for, it’s appreciating the things we already have and cherishing the blessings that show up every day that we readily accept as normal. The key is having a roof, the key is having someone who loves you, the key is being of service to those around you, the key is showing love no matter what happens! That’s a lot of Keys on the chain but if you carry those around with you and you truly appreciate the doors they open, they will lead you to all the love you always wanted, the happiness you deserve and the strength to open those doors for others!

I wish you love today and I pray that you give yourself praise and love, you deserve it!

545!

So it’s Monday and I’m back from a great weekend! I turned 44 years young Sunday and I had a wonderful Time! There was carrot cake and alcohol involved but we won’t get into all that .lol. I pray that you all had a wonderful time and if you didn’t it doesn’t matter because it’s Monday and we get a chance to get it right! I for one, am very glad that you all of sound mind and body and that you have time to read my post this morning so thank you in advance!

 

Screenshot_20180305-093507.jpg

 

O.k my right hand to god I stepped on the scale Saturday morning before all the festivities and she it said I was 541! I was hella happy and about to scream to my girl I had a damn swoosh! Then I looked down and my damn size 16 foot was hanging over the top of the scale so yeah that was false. Yes, it’s o.k for yall to laugh because after I got over my initial pissedoffness(yes this is a word.lol) I laughed as well. So this morning I took a true step on the scale and it said 545 so I was a little disappointed but that’s 2 pounds in a week. Now I realize this is a good pace to lose I wanted it to be faster because I have been kicking the gyms ass. I mean 1 week of tough workouts should trump 44 years of trashing my body! Lmao, I’m just weird I realize this but I truly am glad the scale is going down but damn it I tell you what I refuse to let the scale tell me that I’m not more than 2 pounds better because I feel 15 pounds better! That’s just real. Remember I told yall being healthy is an obsession for me and I am enjoying the journey but if I don’t hit my own personal goal I’m gonna be a little annoyed, which translates to I’m hella more motivated! I’m doing good but I want great and I just won’t stop till I reach each goal along the way yesterday.lol, I thank the lord that I am going the right direction!

We don’t miss Monday’s in the gym so I will be back at war with my fat in the gym today!. I’ve got chest/triceps plus swimming cardio tonight. We did some modified planks last night and it was so funny watching us all collapse on the floor when we got done. It was a big thud and cries of soreness when we landed.haha. I knocked out like 3 pushups last night too so I’m about to get in on this month of march push up challenge for real.lol. I’ve been seeing people on Instagram do it and damn it I want in even though I cant do any real ones yet! I’m alexx3982 on there if yall want to be followers hit me up I’ll follow back. So this week I’ll do 5 days of workouts with 4 weight lifting days and at least 3 cardio workouts and some much needed walking in the park! I hope all your workouts are going well feel free to let me know what you guys are doing because I love finding new and fresh stuff to do!

 

The diet is actually going really well. Even though I had some non-keto snacks this weekend for the ole birthday fun I stayed under my calories! That by itself is a win for me! Today for breakfast I’ll be having keto meal with coffee and some turkey bacon and for my final meal, I’ll have some leftover baked chicken and a green smoothie to get my veggies in. I’ll be posting my macros and all this week so yall can keep ya boi honest!

O.k to wrap it up thank you all so much for all the love on I.G and facebook and even on here. There are so many people that get after me and let me know they are supporting it’s so overwhelming and humbling! Let’s keep crushing it like my homies, Juliecares! , Kawsreflections, Angelle and this really smart chic The Zen Leaf! Thank you, ladies you truly are amazing and you along with so many others inspire me to be a better version of myself! Standing Ovation for you wonderful folks!

Miracle Noodles

20180301_153132.png

 

Today is the first day of March and that’s fantastic! I have always loved March and the weather changes that will be coming soon! Even though it’s raining really hard today I know that it is supposed to clear up and be another beautiful day full of sun! The best thing about today is my miracle noodles should be coming in. If you haven’t heard about these so-called miracle noodles I’ll leave a picture below. After I have them tonight you all know I’ll let you know if they are any good.

 

Just got back from the gym and the chest workout was fantastic! I felt a lot better doing my fasted lifting today than I felt yesterday and I think it had to do with sleep. I slept amazing last night and because of that, I think my body responded very well to lifting on an empty stomach! I’ll definitely see if it helped when I weigh in on Monday. Today was my 3rd lift of the week so all I need is 1 more and I’m at my goal for the week. I do need to pick it up on the cardio end of things because I have only done 1 cardio day so far. We are going swimming tonight so that’s 2 and then I’ll try to double up tomorrow to get right again. I would just do cardio when I lift but the cardio machines are absolutely covered when I lift during the day. There is a huge population of senior citizens at my gym and they work out a ton during the day. Don’t get me wrong I think that’s fabulous and I pray that I am able to live as long and be as active as some of these folks. Since the cardio machines are mostly taken I just swim at night or come back and do the elliptical. I’m giving myself 2 more weeks with my current routine and then I’ll be going up in weight and adding a few more exercises in. That will be cool!

 

20180301_134805.jpg

As I mentioned before I will be making those miracle noodles I ordered from Amazon tonight. While I type this I have them marinating in a delicious sauce so that I can add 2 pieces of chopped up chicken thighs, some sesame seeds and probably some spinach. I’m not too sure yet because I may make a green smoothie in case my noodles taste gross.lol. My fast was broken today with a giant cup of keto meal and coffee a few pieces of turkey bacon and a piece of chicken from the other night. Not only was it delicious but I can honestly say that it certainly filled me up! I’m still trying to figure out if I want to fast 18 hours every day or do 16:8 but as of now, I’m able to fast for 18 hours pretty easily. Just a little tip, If you are eating Keto you will get tired of the same 2 or 3 meals every now and again so it’s very important to keep playing around with different meals that will add variety to your diet. I know from experience that boredom leads to binging because you slip and have just one bad thing and it’s like a chain reaction and before you know it you’ve gained like 5 pounds.lol. Now if you don’t have an addiction to food like myself than nevermind but for me, I know that if I don’t mix it up there will be a problem.lol.

 

I pray that today was good for you and tonight even better! Thank you so very much for reading and I appreciate you all as usual. By the way, I will have updates on the plants I’m growing next week I promise! See Ya!

Keto Coffee On Hit!

Screenshot_20180227-163425.jpg

I can’t call it but today I had to write later than normal.lol. In fact, I haven’t been blogging at all in the morning lately and I have zero idea why! I think when I do early morning workouts it’s easier to get it done early but here lately I been waiting till later in the day to get it done. Anyway, I apologize for the craziness because I really love to write so I just need to get back on my regular schedule. Things have been going really great and I hope everyone is having a bomb Tuesday!

 

Screenshot_20180227-140203.jpg

My workout today was fantastic! Today was back and biceps day and I had a little extra problem today. So I have done fasted cardio and it feels great working out on an empty stomach as far as cardio is concerned. Today when I tried to do it lifting it was hella hard to get thru the workout! I mean I finished but I was really feeling it. Now the thing is I did go up on some of my weight amounts today and I think that had something to do with it so I will try it again tomorrow to see if that was the reason it was tough. My back is throbbing yall but in a good way, it feels good to have that good soreness going on in my body. The girl that works the front desk is like a member of the family now. As soon as I hit the gym she is checking to make sure I’m good and what I’m working on that day. It’s cool when you start to get to know the people at the gym because they almost make you feel guilty for not going to the gym, I dig that kinda helpful pressure! I really gotta take my camera to the gym and start showing yall what my workout looks like I just don’t know if the gym allows it. I could probably go in at like 3 in the morning like when I first started. I’ll see what I can do!

I broke my fast this afternoon with an awesome new meal. So I got that new Keto meal that this dude good beats who has a youtube channel I really dig. When I mix it in water it’s o.k not the greatest tasting stuff was my first impression. But check this out today I actually read the back of the container and it says to add a scoop to your coffee! Gamechanger for sure! It is so damn great tasting and I don’t have to add anything to my black coffee but a scoop of it and I’m good! What a cool discovery to have come upon I was so happy because it has great macros and it’s really easy! I had a few pieces of baked chicken to go with it because I was hella hungry. Just a heads up if you do buy it and it’s available on Amazon, it will break your fast so you have to use it as a meal or snack. I in no way endorse this product and I don’t know him personally but If you ever wonder about it check it out and see if it helps, especially if you’re doing Keto! I’m not sure what we are having for dinner but I’ll probably find a way to eat more chicken yall know me.lol.

 

That’s it for me today. Thank you all so much for reading and being so supportive I’m alexx3982 on Instagram if you wanna be down just hit me up! Enjoy this beautiful day and find a way to smile today homies!

547!

Happy Monday my good people and I hope you’re having a fun day! It is finally a sunny day here and it seems the water is slowly starting to go down and things are starting to get back to normal thank goodness! I’m a little late today because I had a ton of errands to run but I’m here now so let’s get into it!

 

I just got back from the gym and Monday is such an important day to go to the gym because it starts your week off right and gets you ready to tackle the goals for the week! Today was chest day and it felt really great to push really hard today, even did some extra reps! My gym was a little busier than normal but the cool thing all the people were not in the weights area so I got my work done very easily and fun! Tonight we are supposed to go swimming and if we don’t for some reason get to go I’ll just run in for a quick cardio session to stay on track. I’m not sure but I think my fiance’ has plans tonight so we will see.

 

I ordered a new meal replacement called Keto meal which is a supplement that has perfect macros with just a few scoops into 16 oz of water. I have to say it’s not really tasty but it’s tolerable and if I have good results I can always purchase a different flavor it may taste a little better. If you’re looking for a keto friendly meal replacement I would recommend it if you don’t have a really sensitive palate. Along with the shake, I had a low carb enchilada and it was so damn good! Not too sure what I’m having tonight but I’m really craving those Longhorn wings!lol. Let’s see if that’s in the budget tonight!

 

Screenshot_20180226-153136.jpg

 

Well, today I weighed myself and I am at 547! That’s crazy because I think it had to do with my damn doctor making me eat like 3k calories so when I went back to 2500 I’m doing much better. I mean it’s easier to blame him right?lol. I realize that’s dumb because it’s my responsibility to listen to my damn body and trust my gut. So even though I only lost 5 pounds at least I’m headed in the right direction now.lol. The process is lifelong so I’m o.k with going slower as long as I’m doing the healthiest thing possible. I eat better now than ever before so I’m happy with that! This journey is going to have it’s up’s and downs but as long as I keep feeling better I’m o.k with it!

Love you all very much!

Pizza,Pizza,Pizza

It’s Friday you ain’t got no job and you ain’t got sh*t to do.lmao. Happy Friday everyone I love this line from Chris Tucker in Friday the movie, talk about not caring but just sittin’ back and watching the trill things in life float by, Classic! When you open your eyes this morning I pray that you find yourself well rested and ready to take on the entire universe with a sword in one hand and coffee/morning beverage in the other.

 

20180223_041250.jpg

 

Up early this morning to crush a little cardio because I had a rough night! Yesterday I got my last strength training session in for the week and now I’m just on that cardio kick till I get to 4! You never know I may go ahead and lift this afternoon before I go grab some groceries. An elliptical is an amazing machine and with the swimming, we have been doing I’m glad I got a chance to mix it up with something I know I love and that puts me in a great mood! I just did 30 minutes of cardio because I think we are swimming tonight so that will be an hour and I’m cool with that total for the day. It was very peaceful rolling up to the gym in my Tahoe to an empty parking lot and knowing that myself and the other people there are up before everyone else and grabbing a workout! So this morning was cardio number 2 for the week so I still got work to do for real!

If you follow my blog you know I had some damn issues last night! The pizza monster was in the house and I ran upstairs like 5-year old for real! I just had to get away because it smelled so damn good! Part of my gym trip this morning was my inner grown ass man saying “Not only am I not gonna eat that Pizza but I’m gonna go burn some calories, how you feel about that my doughy friend”! lmao. If you didn’t already know ya boy got issues for real and there ain’t no getting away from it but I must get better because I have things I want for my future! So for the diet last night I had 2 pretty good sized meals. The fast was broken with an avocado smoothie with turkey bacon. The fiance’ made deviled eggs for me so for my second meal it I had those with some pork rinds and some bulletproof coffee. We had a few mixed drinks with gin so my calorie count got to 2500 but I’m cool with that, it was worth it to me. The 2 meal system just works best for me and I honestly tried what the doctor said about trying to get 3k calories but that shit is making my scale go the wrong way and I’m working too hard for that.

So many people reached out to me last night and you know who you are! In life, no one owes me a damn thing so when people are just there for me like that I realize that not only am I blessed beyond measure but I need to be more humble.You all humble me with your words and kind spirits and I am eternally grateful for the love and support! You have my word I will never ever take it for granted and I realize I am powerless alone but together we can nudge glaziers! Thanks again my friends!

Treat yourself this weekend don’t hold off on doing something special for yourself!

Damn Right I’m Not Stopping!!!

 

I can’t front ever since I was a child my favorite day was Thursday! I’m not sure if it had anything to do with my favorite shows on the tube being on this day or what but Thursday always did it for me. With that said I hope that you all have a fabulous day and that you take joy in knowing it’s almost the freakin’ weekend’!

The workout was great yesterday because it was one of those days I just didn’t want to go but I went anyway. Sometimes I have to force myself to go and the weird thing is those workouts almost always feel the best! the gym was flooded but it was all my fault because I was out of my lane. Because of schedule, I had to go at 3 and that just not my usual time so it’s my bad that I added to the overcrowdedness of the gym. Is that a damn word?lol. No matter I was still able to blow thru the chest and triceps workout for the day. I’ve got 3 lifts in this week but only 1 cardio day so I’ll do both today and then just cardio a few days to get to my 4 days for each. The whole gym has been sick so I been scrubbing my damn hands like a neurosurgeon lately before, during and after the workouts I’m not trying to get sick that virus is not playing this year! My girl is off work and going thru shark week so pray for me that I go, it’s always harder for me to go when she is home for some reason! I need to get this in because the scale is being super kind this week so damn it I wanna keep the peddle down!

 

O.k so something weird happened yesterday! I had 2 meals and I was super full and couldn’t really eat anymore like my body was hella full and I only had like 1806 calories all day. The crazy thing is I have at least 2500 to 3k daily and I burned like 1k calories yesterday. Is that normal, do any of you find that if you had a really hard day in the gym that you can’t eat as much? Hell if that’s the case I’ll kill the gym every damn day I was born at night not last night ya know?lol. I’ll take those type of results on the regular but I’m certainly not used to the number being this crazy! The truth is I was really not hungry at all and my stomach is always hungry! For my first meal, I had a green smoothie and a small bowl of ham. The second meal was Bulletproof coffee and a bowl of ground meat with butter and cheese, plus a handful of the most delicious Pistachios ever! Maybe it was all the fiber? If any of you have any idea please let me know because I would really like to know if that’s normal for some of you. Having 2 meals is just better for me because not only is it easier but it allows me to fast a bit longer which I’m starting to love!

I was poking around the internet and I decided to do some research on obesity. Man if you do that for like 5 minutes they make you feel like you are going to go sleep and never wake up! I stumbled across that show My 600lb life and that shit stopped me dead in my tracks. You know how you are just flipping thru channels and you catch something and like 2 hours later your pausing the t.v and refilling your drink because you don’t wanna miss shit? That was me, I mean it got me and I was like I need to watch this everytime I don’t feel like going to the gym or when I feel like giving up. I’m not clowning at all but hell I’m not too much smaller than most of the people on the show and I had to catch my feelings up. Then I had questions like why does fat look so different on different bodies? I see people on there that look way bigger than me and then they get weighted and I’m like damn they smaller than me, wtf?  Needless to say, my interest was peaked and I will be checking out the show a lot more because the stuff they were talking about sounded like a damn recording of what goes on in my head sometimes! That stuff is a game-changer because our emotions make us move! When your head is really into something your body will follow and these people are so damn courageous and I’m like “Hey negroe if some dude in Houston can go from a crane lifting him out of bed to getting healthier than you have no damn excuse when the gym is damn near in your backyard”! That hit me in the chest like an MMA fighters right hook!

If you know me you know I am never trying to make fun of anyone and what they are going thru, my point is to find your motivation! It doesn’t have to be a show or a life-threatening condition, it could be a new outfit or getting on a ride at a waterpark! There’s something that will push the adrenaline bottom for you and get you thrust into action to fix things you want to change your life, go find that thing NOW! It’s out there and you might not need to get knocked on your ass like I did yesterday to come to it!
