T&E Thursday part πŸ’¬

 πŸ₯΄πŸ₯΄ Let's just say the 1st 2 weeks were anomalies....πŸ€”πŸ€” or maybe this week is the anomaly because I have NOT been on it. Idk what happened but the time shifted on me. 

Between not keeping with my regular fasting hours ((I try intermittently fast from 8pm to 11am daily)) and homeschooling, working, writing my books and blog, eating, sleeping, trying to have fun, going through 2 different online courses, and numerous 1 off tasks that I'm sure I failed to remember, my days have gotten shorter and shorter. I literally need a nap as I type this πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It wasn't a complete flake. I did manage to get about 3 good workouts in this week. I also have been able to maintain some of the progress. And I am still proud of myself 😍😍😍πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾 ((pics below))πŸ‘‡πŸΎπŸ‘‡πŸΎ

What grinds my gears

 I always wondered whyyyyy it's okay to refer to grown women as girl but it's the ultimate disrespect to men when they're called boys. 

What is it about grown women that doesn't warrant respect or growth or equality in the adult realm?! Why is that even something that women are okay with?! We work hard as mothers, wives, sisters, etc yet we're never recognized as grown, not even in our own minds.....just needed to get that off my chest.

T&E Thursday: Week ✌🏾

 Well, surprise, surprise. It's time for my 2nd update on how my workout sessions have been going πŸ‹πŸΎ‍♀️πŸ‹πŸΎ‍♀️πŸ‹πŸΎ‍♀️🀸🏾‍♀️🀸🏾‍♀️🧘🏾‍♀️🧘🏾‍♀️. Let's just say I have 🀯🀯🀯 blown my own mind. 

I've actually been working out CONSISTENTLY. I follow the schedule daily. It's been a really pumped up successful and productive week. 

Okay, soo here are the exercises that I do:

I don't actually do the squats because I don't really like them but I use the number and do that number of donkey kicks on each leg. 

I actually do the crunches exactly as the picture dictates. I used to do 200 crunches a day && I loved my results soo i decided to keep these as is. 

I am not a fan of planks soo I replaced the regular planks with lunges. I also replaced the side planks with standing oblique twists since I want to work on my love handles. I also replaced the crunches with a bridge exercise using the number as the amount of seconds I hold the bridge position. I do the bicycle because I do enjoy that exercise. 😊

I stare at these exercises because I want to muster up the strength to do them but I usually find myself unmotivated whenever I look at this list. I will admit this is an amazing list and it's full of great exercises that will help you get into shape πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾

Soooo drum roll pleaseπŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯ are my results this week ((from here on out I will try to wear the same pants for my pictures && please don't mind my face....or my bathroom)):

Trial && Error Thursday: week 1

 Soo I figure with all this free time. I could commit to something ((preferably something to benefit my life)) when I'm not writing πŸ₯΄πŸ₯΄.....for this month I'm going to go ahead && WORKOUT πŸ‹πŸΎ‍♀️🀸🏾‍♀️πŸ‹πŸΎ‍♀️🧘🏾‍♀️ ((wish me luck πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰)). I wanted to see if these monthly fitness challenges work....or are they just click bait?!

Should be a piece of cake, right?! I mean I did do 6 years in the military. Running 12 miles at least once a week for 4 of those years. Training in the mud. Sleeping in the field. Building our own tents. Rucking 16+ miles in boots. What's a little workout in the living room.....well, 2 pregnancies && a preschooler later, an actual piece of cake sounds MUCHHHHHHH better than the workout. πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” 

Okayyyy, fineeeee. I'll work out. I spent enough time body shaming my mombod since somewhere between the beginning of toddler stages to now. It's time I get back to what I was when I first gave birth. I lost all the weight. Felt amazing. Dressed AMAZING and was soo full of love for my self. 

Here's some before pics && literally taken the same day but that yoga pants roll down tells a wholeeeee different story. I  don't know my actual weight because I am interested in losing inches and shaping instead of losing the numbers on the scale. In case my πŸ“Έ aren't obvious, I'm sooooo focused on my stomachand back area. Wish me luck, you guys!!πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎ
