So… I decided to make this a personalized thank you blog post to Anne , because she sent me an early Christmas Gift that I have received today in the mail. I will try to keep this short because I promised to send her a letter – so can’t give all the goods away in this post. I just wanted to tell her thank you so much! I appreciate all our wonderful conversations, our laughs, name calling and vulgar personality traits that we have in common! lol. Not to mention our love for Lana Del Rey 😛 —- that is the reason I still keep you around! XD jk

I have never gotten a gift from a fellow blogger before, and let me tell you, it feels amazing, we live in different countries and shit is expensive to send people, but she made it work and she did it out of the kindness of her heart! I literally teared up because it is the my first Christmas gift of 2016 and it feels so damn good that it came from someone as sweet as Anne, I cannot wait to open it! I thank your husband for being awesome enough to not get upset over the expense. LOL. Tell him I am worth it!!! haha. jk  No but seriously, once she gets better, I hope she can read this blog post, because honestly, this was the best part of my day when I seen this in the mail 😀 I appreciate it Anne, thank you so much! I decided to not use vulgar content within the blog to save the audience from our childish ways! lmfao. 

P.S Anne, does this officially make me your trophy wife? 🙂 —- xoxox

Personal training: Helping a friend day seven

surprise

Happy Monday everyone, 

I have some wonderful news to share about today’s adventure at the gym, as always I was supposed to work with John in kicking his ass into shape, but today he surprised me with bringing his sister along with him to workout. I have to admit I was shocked and very happy, I wasn’t expecting such good news and it made the day even more fulfilling.  With this being said, she has decided to hop on board with the #FitFam and workout with John and I, so I will be helping her to lose the weight she wants to lose and hopefully get her feeling better internally and externally. Today I just included her with our workout at a different pace and incline, but tomorrow we plan to sit down and talk so I can get an idea of her goals (short term and long term), have an idea of her activity/fitness level, eating habits, etc. She is said she will be joining John and I again tomorrow for our workout before sitting down with me, so I am looking forward to it. 

Now time to share some not so great news, John ended up weighing himself Sunday, but it was botched because he did it after eating and late in the afternoon, which I always recommend in the morning when you wake up before you eat something. He ended up gaining 2 lb, but this could be for multiple reasons and he basically identified his eating habits are the reason he thinks, and wants to fix, so hopefully he will have a plan in place to help him with that and I can guide him if needed. Nonetheless, he wasn’t upset or sad, he didn’t panic or overthink it, but he said he did ask himself questions so he could understand where he went wrong, and I sent him an email addressing why he may have gained weight. Although our first week together wasn’t consistent, so I have to consider that part myself. Regardless, we are moving on and going to strive for better! I am proud of him for continuing to meet me at the gym, not yet giving up and encouraging his sibling to join us. 

Today’s workout with John:

Warm-up:

Dynamic stretch:

  • walking lunges
  • leg swings, 10 reps each leg
  • walking glute stretch

Workout:

  • Treadmill- 30 minutes, no incline, 4.0 speed
  • Treadmill- 15 minutes, 3.0 incline, 3.5 speed

Cool down:

  • Treadmill- 5 minutes, 2.5 speed, no incline

Today’s workout wasn’t too hard, and he was able to do 4.0 at 30 minutes without reducing his speed this time, so tomorrow we will be doing the same exact exercise & warm-up. I think hopefully I will be able to see him do 45 minutes at 4.0 without reducing his speed, but it might take some time, and that is okay. His sister did her’s at a different pace, but kept up with it, and had no complaints about the workout. She does have an injury though, so I have to be particularly careful of her exercises, which she sees her doctor soon, so I will get more information on it. Today was a good day at the gym and both did relatively well, hoping tomorrow goes just as well!
