I took three days off from the gym this week because I had my sister’s birthday, family events, and I plain just didn’t feel like going. Not going to sugarcoat or play it off because I want to be honest with y’all! Even though I didn’t go put myself through rigorous physical activity, I managed to eat well and not go overboard with the calories, since I knew I wouldn’t be burning extra due to my lounging on the couch all day.
Those three days got me pumped to go back today, however, and I had a great workout! Seriously, it took me more time to run out of energy, and I was able to lift a little heavier, or at least longer without getting fatigued. So, if you’re ever experiencing a day where the thought of hearing the grunts, moans, and primal yells emanating from the weight room makes you want to hurl or go into a rage fit, then take the day off! Maybe mix up your routine by taking a walk, playing a sport with friends, or going on a bike ride. Also, you could just be a couch potato. No one will suspect a thing…don’t burn yourself out too soon, or you’ll never want to go back for a long time, and that’s no good!
Okay, I’m done with that tangent now, and it’s time for the pictures! *Cue applause and suspenseful music*
And here they are! Please keep in mind, I’m still working towards my goal, and I’m not a fitness model. I’m sure proud of myself though, even if there hasn’t been enough time to truly see that much difference. Hope y’all enjoy!
Bonsoir mes amies!
