Good morning, What yall know about us reaching another glorious Thursday? How real is that? Today, not only are we one day away from Friday but it’s my favorite day of the week, nobody hates on Thursday’s homies! Today I wish you a renewed passion and love for all the things in life you enjoy and love! Find a reason and a way to be happy because it’s a decision and it starts from the time you wake up till the time you lay it down! I got you If you need any encouragement and love this morning just hit me up!lol. So let’s get into what’s going down and what’s already transpired ya dig?

Yesterday I hit the gym on that first real workout since I been back from the west coast and I must admit that having a little break from the gym has really helped! My muscles had a chance to relax and recover from my constant pulling and pushing and it was much needed! It’s also very important to step back once and awhile because when you re-engage you realize just how hard your workout really is which will allow you to assess and see if you need to go harder or change up the workout!  This week I decided instead of changing everything I would simply change the time I workout and add a second workout to my day. This fine Thursday saw me rise and grind at 4 a.m and hit the gym for a quick cardio session, later today I’ll go back and do a back and bicep workout and try a few new lifts so I can slowly change my routine. The reason for the change is so that I can get a jump on the day but also concentrate on my writing early in the morning. Hopefully, this will lead to a more productive day and increase my fat loss at the same time! I AM CHANGE remember that? That’s me and that’s the approach you need to take sometimes if you’re looking for a different and more fruitful return on your efforts. Going to the gym is fun but I’m not just in it for fun but RESULTS, if that’s not the goal then I’m just wasting time and money ya know?

 

Lately, my grub game(diet) has been all over the place but in a good way. I’ve been narrowing down my variety and focusing more on the simple, tried and true keto meals I know and love! For example yesterday I found this cauliflower hash veggie mix at Kroger and I added it to some ground sausage to make some delicious crackslaw! If you read my blog then you know I love this stuff and it’s so easy even a dude like me can do it! My coffee is a must when I’m keto strong and I’ve been using less Keto meal and doing coconut oil, MCT oil and Kerrygold butter in my cup of joe. It’s a great way to get in good healthy fats without taking a hit in the carb department! I’ve been doing zero snacking because I’m at my best when I have 2 large meals a day and fast for at least 16-18 hours daily. My water game has stayed on point and if I don’t get at least 6 to 8 glasses of water my body feels dry like a desert for real! My ceiling for carbs in a day is 50 and that’s higher than regular therapeutic keto but again it works for me so that’s what I’m doing. Tonight I’m having baked chicken and probably lamb from the freezer with a green monster shake, like my son Marcus always says “It ain’t hard, it’s easy!” So stay steady and stay down and the results will take care of themselves!

 

Did you know we all have an unbelievable dept to pay? We are in debt to ourselves and we owe dues on the regular to the bank of self-love and worth. It is absolutely your responsibility to pay yourself in full with all the self-love and praise you can level. The vaults of your happiness should be full of capital! Make regular deposits and you will keep earning dividends that will benefit not only you but everyone around you! That’s some financial responsibility for your ass right there! lol. Enjoy your day and help someone else enjoy theirs!

Lift Comp!

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

Grow Box

Thursday is always a good day as far as I’m concerned! I hope everyone is having a great and happy week as we get ready to slide into the weekend! Yesterday, we were running all kinds of errands and running around with our heads cut off but we still got everything done, including the workout! I got 3 workouts down and 3 more to go to make up for last week, I’m so serious about making every single week count!

Yesterday workout was fast and very explosive. Interval strength training is kicking my butt but I love it. I only did about 30 minutes of lifting but with only about 10 seconds between reps, my muscles screamed for relief. Even though back and biceps are my worse strength areas, yesterdays workout showed me just how far I have come in those 2 areas! Not only did I increase my weight but I was able to slide from one exercise to the next with no break in between. I’m loving the feeling of having gains in the gym! Today, because of my schedule, I will be doing cardio at home and then waking up at 3 a.m. to do strength training! We gotta get these goals taken care of for sure!

 

 

On the eating front, I am so happy to report I had some bomb honey garlic chicken for dinner last night! I’ll admit I had to take the small hit for honey to my macros but those were my only carbs/sugars of the day so I’m good. Don’t worry I took a few pictures so you all could see! If someone like me can throw this stuff together than anyone can! Had 2 meals as usual and fasted for 18 hours to complete the routine. My fasting is actually getting to be fun because instead of doing just the warrior fasting, I have been doing random fasts to mix my body up and I really feel like it’s working! My tummy has no idea when food is coming it just knows when it comes, there will be lots of greens and some amazing proteins until I get to the point where I can just eat veggies which is my goal later in life!

 

 

 

 

I promised to show you guys my seedlings are coming in and I also want to show you all my cool little ghetto grow box I made out of a tote!

 

 

 

 

I’m growing red leaf and mixed leaf lettuce to start and then some herbs! Hopefully, after this, I can transfer them to a hydroponic system later once I learn more and more! Have a fabulous day homies and I’ll be back to write a little more Friday which promises to be adventurous around here with all the freezing rain we are supposed to get, my goodness!

Let’s Get It!!

 

IMG_20171213_060109_218.jpg

 

Good morning to all of you and happy Tuesday! I am hoping that everyone had a safe and fun new year and that you all are settling into this glorious new beginning. This morning has started off fantastic, I just knocked out my first workout of the year and I must say it was fantastic! I love college football and as the games were playing I must have dozed off at halftime because I woke up at like midnight and my body was really wanting to get this first workout of the year in the books! My workout consisted of chest and triceps and even though I felt I pushed it, I was kinda on exploration mode this morning at the gym. I’m still fairly new to the layout and I found myself wandering around trying to see were this and that goes.lol The elliptical and I are back on great terms and we worked together for about 20 minutes of nice paced cardio. As you all know I absolutely love that machine and I actually look forward to cardio because of it!

Yesterday I had one of my signature obese salads with Romain, Green Onion, and Arugula and it was delicious, although I ran out of the homemade dressing so I’m hoping I still have the ingredients to bust out a few more batches later today! Of course, I followed the salad with my simple baked chicken and a tall glass of water. To be honest, I really only have maybe 4 or 5 things that I make over and over again, I’m pretty basic and simple with my Keto meals. The kids are back home from their dad’s and I’m so glad to see them; however. they were loaded down with all types of cookies and candy from the holidays with the other half of the family. I was like noooo! I felt like Kevin in that movie Home Alone.lol. Everything they brought home looked amazing and of course, loaded with sugar and I did all I could to look away. Ugh! It feels amazing to have their energy and enthusiasm back in the house, they just make the atmosphere seem better! O.k I have to mention that I fasted 20 hours yesterday and only had one meal, which is something I really try not to do because I don’t want to be malnourished or anything. I don’t know how it works for all of you but if I have too many days that I’m under a certain caloric intake I end up binging and we can’t have that!

 

I just wanted to share something with you guys that’s completely and totally off topic for me but Have you all seen Dave Chappelle’s new stand up comedy show’s on Netflix? There are two of them and they are absolutely hilarious. His comedy is certainly not for everyone, but to me, he has an amazing mixture of interesting topics and the punchlines are always on point! You should definitely check them out if you need a quick laugh this week. I wish you all the very best day possible and don’t forget that you are worth all the effort it takes to be the very best you can be! If you need any support or any advise that I can help with please don’t hesitate to check out my facebook page! Alexx’s Keto Avenue.
