just picked up my favorite candy…
Sweet! But why are you on anon then! You’re killin me smalls!
Not personal at all! I’ve never gotten mine pierced, but only because of what I saw my sister go through with hers.. But then again she didn’t clean it properly or take care of it properly and had to go to the doctor multiple times for antibiotics because it got infected. As far as what she told me it doesn’t hurt to get it or workout, it only hurts if it gets infected and if you don’t clean the jewelry properly while it’s healing or whenever you take it out/put it in.
Also I may add, she went hotel hot tub jumping (yuck) right after she got it so I’m not too sure any of this is that helpful for your situation.
So I would say absolutely do your thing if you really want it! Just be smart about it and keep it clean! Which I’m sure you will :)
Thank you! And I must say so are you! :)
I totally get it, I’m often in the same boat as you with the motivation thing. Like right now I’m sitting here on tumblr delaying my trip to the gym.. lol It’s really all about pushing yourself, but also knowing and understanding that you’re human. And we aren’t always at 100% and sometimes it’s okay to just relax and know that it’s not the end of the world. You’re still kicking butt in the long run with your weight loss! (Congrats btw!) The best thing you can do is tell yourself you’re worth it, and know that you are, not just for the way you look but because it makes you feel good too!
But for stomach and thighs I can’t stress enough cardio on top of weight training. For legs I do the bike at level 18-20 for 10-15 minutes (and oh god so I feel the burn) and or the stair climber for 15 minutes, then I run HIIT for 30 min.
I also do the leg press machine with 150 for 10 reps, 3 sets andddd weighted squats. This is just part of my leg routine, but I would recommend checking out Cassey Ho’s Blogilaties for legs and stomach exercises. She’s awesome and I love following her calender. It also helps keep me on track and motivated! Here’s the link to her videos and site, she’s also on Tumblr as well! http://www.blogilates.com/workout-video-index/
Well I can’t delay the gym and longer but let me know if this helped at all? Sorry if it’s kind of ramble-y but I just took preworkout so my mind is going a million miles a minute. Best of luck to you on your fitness journey, I know you can do it! And let me know if you ever need a motivation buddy! :)
Hey! So this is actually pretty common and actually happened to me as well. What you may be experiencing is weight gain due to muscle gains! Which is exciting! As long as you’re eating clean and not seeing any fat being gained and see results (the best way to tell is take pictures periodically because we tend not to notice), you should be fine :) Keep up the good work! It sounds like you’re doing awesome!
And I do want to add, don’t worry about the number on the scale, a better way to measure progress is taping and measuring.
Haha I know what you’re talking about but I’m not sure what the technical name is for them! lol I’ve always just called them floor oblique twists, but it seems everyone has different names for the move. It’s similar to a russian twist, but you’re laying flat with you’re knees up and they’re moving instead of your upper body. You can also straighten your legs out and it has the same effect, I’ve seen that one called the “straight leg russian twist”. So it sounds like you’re doing them right!
Hope this helps! :)
Before I workout I eat half a cup of plain greek yogurt with either strawberries, raspberries, or even a few dark chocolate chips.
After I workout I eat 2 whole eggs sunny side up with a third just egg white and a slice of bread. I like to eat a meal after I workout because I’m always starving and I want to replenish my body. So I would suggest eating the cottage cheese and fruit before you workout for some energy, then eating a healthy full meal after so you aren’t tempted with a bunch of bad foods after your workout.
This questions been in my inbox for a while and I apologize for that, but for some reason the little messages tab doesn’t alert me that I get messages so I’m currently rooting through a bunch, but to answer your question, I use Amino1 by MusclePharm.
I love the fruit punch flavor, it’s the least chalky one to me and unlike other pre-workouts I’ve tried (like C4 brand) it doesn’t make me feel all hot and tingly like almost hot flash-like.
Hope this helps!
Ehh, I would but then it would validate her quest for attention. She’s the type that was always the victim and never responsible for her actions, her parents made her that way.
I don’t care enough to tell her about how desperate I think it is that she feels the need to post things like that. I just think it’s odd and a little funny she’s still not over something that happened almost 10 years ago…
