Phase Two: Week Four. Day 24| Six Weeks To Shreds

Warm up:

 
  • 2-3 minute skipping in place

Workout:

  • Bentover barbell row: 4 x 9-11. 70 lb (1 minute skipping in place between sets)
  • DB incline row: 3 x 9-11. 70 lb ( 1 minute goblet squat – 30 lb between sets)
  • Seated cable rows: 3 x 9-11.  120 lb ( 1 minute box jumps between each set)
  • Barbell shrug: 4 x 9-11. 155 lb (1 minute DB step ups – 20 lb between each set)
  • Barbell curl: 3 x 9-11. 45 lb (1 minute kettlebell swings- 8kg between each set)
  • seated barbell curl: 3 x 9-11. 30 lb (1 minute med ball slams – 10 lb between each set)
  • Reverse barbell curl: 3 x 9-11. 45 lb. (1 minute DB lunge-20 lb between each set)

Today I was not feeling it, I was fatigued before getting started and just aching a bit. I don’t think it is over training ( not quite that bad) .. I just think it is about that time again (if you know what I mean). I couldn’t finish a whole minute of med ball slams without stopping and I hardly slammed the ball hard enough to make a noise, I was just barely getting by on my workout today, BUT with all that being said, I made some good progress compared to my week one results.

Anyone else have a long day at the gym today, or just not feeling today’s workout?

now for those of you who are working on building strength and need something lighter to get started, my gym used body bars with some of their clients and in college I started with one for a class or two and let me tell you, they come real handy!

Thank You (Poem At The End)

I wanted to catch everyone up on why I haven’t been active on social media and my blog page as well.. and what is to come. 

 

Firstly, I want to say thank you to all of those who have left comments on my latest YouTube video and my blog post while I have been MIA – it truly means the world to me and while I did not respond to any of them, I did read them.. and it made me thankful that many of you were being as supportive as possible. 

 

Secondly, I apologize that all my viewers and blog friends and followers have not seen much of me on social media (including this blog) and I know it sucks because I have so much to write about and all you flock to my page to get the next big thing I have written; waiting patiently and none of you were prepared for this disappeared kind of moment. This was not fair to any of you – but I had to do what I had to do if it meant staying away for a while.

 

Thirdly, for those of you who aren’t caught up or new to the blog, this week has been full of emotional lows for me, I have been in rage, sad, frustrated, confused, and withdrew from close friends and family – for reasons I will not discuss on this blog or social media.. some may have guessed it or might have a clue as to why but I will not confirm those reasons for privacy reasons. I have a personal life that isn’t always something I want to discuss online. It has been very difficult for me, I haven’t been to the gym all week, I left the gym on Tuesday in tears and anger that I could not manage to go back all this week, I haven’t been eating much at all and my selections have not been healthiest at all – in all honesty I have been falling apart all week. The first to go was my mind, I lost it.. I was in my room crying most days and throwing shit other days of the week and all in all I missed out on tons of sleep to the point of not being able to function correctly. It wasn’t until partly yesterday I was slowly showing people support on Instagram again and trying to manage my emotions all at once.. it has been difficult but in the end.. we all have shitty days, right?

 

Fourthly, I will try to create a video Monday for all of you to get some updates.. and if I don’t you will have to excuse me because I still look horrible and although emotionally I feel like I am healing somewhat, I am not 100 percent yet. Not even close to it. I will continue to blog (starting today) and have even made it a point to start some new projects during this week of emotional rollercoasters.

 

Fifthly, I have given thought on starting a second blog that has nothing to do with fitness at all. It is a totally different spectrum and I will be honest, not sure what will come of it if I decide to do it but I feel like it could be a good thing for others as well as myself. I will continue this fitness blog – no worries, this is my FIRST love and my career and life, so this won’t be going away. Along with a new blog page means I will probably be creating a new facebook page dedicated to it, but that is all something I will start at later dates, I am taking this a day at a time. So be patient with me. 

 

Lastly, I have decided to share a simple poem with all of you I created within minutes of writing this post, hopefully all of you will enjoy it. I will be working on myself day my day because I want to make the most of my life with someone I adore and love and I want to better myself in all aspects of life and I want to blossom into something that I know I am capable of! All of your emails, comments, and social media messages have been read and I am in so much ‘ahh’ at all how many of you were by my side during this time, I am blessed beyond belief to have an online family who stands by my corner but I also want to thank all my close friends and family for keeping me on the up and up even when I was falling into pieces in front of you, you are my heros and I love you!

 

Poem:

I fell on my face, nothing could pick me back up

for all this time, I thought I wasn’t enough

sometimes the mental pain drains me, and my body hates me,

the insanity that takes over me – has me going crazy

 

the smile on my face gave me such distaste, pretending to be happy 

in order to survive this phase. 

It takes strength to grow but I didn’t know it would take so much pain

for every flower around me withered at my downward spiral that I gained

 

You won’t understand my story,  it has no end but many beginnings

You won’t understand my words, they are spoken while drinking henny,,

You won’t understand me, because I am everything in between..

This poem is only a small dose of me.

How To Handle Your Gym-Intimidation

The Gym Can be scary for anyone

This was my video on gym-intimidation, make sure to read the description box under the video as well. Thank you 🙂

Know Your Purpose|Know Your Role

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPcZMTg1gdU

I think many of you will be very appreciative of this particular vlog video, as it goes over how your roles you choose in life and the roles given to you in life all make a difference in other people’s lives, make you that much closer to your overall purpose – and by purpose, I mean the one thing that is much more than the external wishes. The things that you aim for that effect other people in a positive way. We all have roles, some have more than others and we might not always have a choice in what roles we have but we have a choice in what direction we choose to use those roles and how they effect people in our circle/lives. Sometimes we ask our-self what is our purpose, how do I fulfill my purpose, when do I know when to fulfill and it and it isn’t always clear to us in the beginning but the more roles you take on and remove from your life, it becomes more clear to you how you want others to view you, how you want people to respond to you and how certain roles can hinder your purpose in life. 

In this particular video, I give you examples of two different kind of roles we have in this life and explain to you how to see your purpose and how to view your life from now on, from this day forward. I hope many of you will watch this video, as this is something I came up with on my own time and without a script to go on, be patient with me as I speak to you & share this video among friends, family, peers, social media.. because I want more people to be inspired and to look at their purpose in this way! 

Thank you for your time, enjoy the video.

700 followers and counting!

Hello everyone, 

I have finally reached my goal of 700 + followers, and I am very grateful and excited about it! I don’t know if any of you remember, but it has been some months, since making this goal, so it took me sometime, but I am very happy nonetheless. I want to say thank you to all those that continue to follow my blog, those have subscribed to my blog and those who have shown support on all my social media accounts as well! I love blogging and enjoy speaking with all of you, I know this number doesn’t seem so big for some, but for me, it seems so huge. Especially considering all the other fitness/health bloggers who write about some of the same things as I do, and it can be difficult because I like to stand out among others and show my flying colors. I definitely want to continue to impress all of you with my continued blogging and social media efforts, so please don’t leave, make this page home and know that I am YOUR NUMBER ONE FAN! whatever journey you are on, I am your number one fan, always cheering you on! Thank you!

Next goal: 800 followers 

P.S invite your friends and family to read my blog post as well, I have had people from my social media accounts sharing my blog post with their followers, and I love it, I love knowing people all of over will get to read something positive and inspiring and motivating.

Your Fitness Blogger,
