Last Week | Hammer and Chisel

This is my last week of the 60 day program Hammer and Chisel. 

I have overcome some great hurdles during the past few weeks and I’m amazed at how much my body has changed with this program. 

I can do burpee’s without stopping and adding the jump, I can hold a plank on a medicine ball, push-ups using a medicine ball and do endless deep squats. All of these I never thought I’d be able to do. I’ve always wished I could but never knew how to get there. 

Hammer and Chisel has taught me a lot about my body and how to lift weights. I always wanted to be a fitness girl but I never knew how to get there. 

I’m so happy I did this program and I can’t wait for next week to begin a hybrid of hammer and chisel and 21 day fix extreme!

Struggles | Not Feeling Yourself

It’s been a difficult week this past week and this isn’t something I’ve wanted to talk about or share with others. I have been bloated beyond belief and nothing I’m doing to try to fix it has helped. My stomach is 5 times larger than  it normally is, my clothes fit poorly and I  have no energy nor the desire to work out.

I’m tense because of the bloating which in turn adds to my migraines issues. I know I just need to relax, but it’s nearly impossible when I feel this way. I’m constantly sucking in my gut to still feel normal, rather than relaxing so the issue can resolve itself.
This feeling has caused me to make very poor decisions when it comes to eating and working out, and I know sticking to a healthy lifestyle is even more important at times like these, but it’s hard.

The healthy lifestyle journey that I started in February has really helped me, these days are far and few between unlike they were before I started, but I do still struggle. I don’t have the answers I need to get through times like this, but I’m still doing everything I can to try and figure them out and get though it.

 

Blue Aron | Meal Prep Sunday

Good morning, everyone!

Today, I’ve gotten my butt up and out of bed to begin meal prepping. 🙂 I didn’t want to  IMG_7930.JPGstress about making the time to cook all day long, so I’m doing my best to get it out-of-the-way now.

I do want to get other things done instead, but meal prepping is the most important thing you can do on the weekends, to help you eat healthy throughout the week. I can’t stress that point enough. If I didn’t pre make my food, I’d be eating nothing but cheese quesadilia’s all week and going out to eat for lunch. Here’s just a few things I’ve made so far. 🙂

Struggles | You’re not the only one

I have been struggling a lot lately. The allergic reaction I’m having has taken absolutely every ounce of energy out of me. I can’t figure out what’s causing it and the doctors are in no hurry to help.

It’s embarrassing being out in public but yet I have to deal with it on a daily basis.  Soon I’ll be meeting new people in my job, as I take on more responsibilities at work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m VERY happy to be moving on, but my confidence level has been in the dumps lately and I’d rather just hide until the problem is fixed. 

On a positive note, I may not be allergic to Shakeology but rather the coconut milk I used to make it. 😕
