World Mental Health Day

Mental Health Awareness!

Spread knowledge, understanding, love and patience.

https://soundcloud.com/shay-lonfitnesswonderwoman-moss-fitness-wonderwoman/fitness-health-advice-10-world

With today being “World Mental health day” , I wanted to make a post and podcast about mental health. Every Thursday I dedicate my blog to mental health awareness because I believe it is so important to make these disorders known so that they become less of an omen and more of a way to enlighten, teach and hopefully make it so people understand the different mental health conditions – in hopes that we will find more ways to help these individuals and also to help ourselves from being ignorant of the matter. Mental health has been in this world for a long time, there once was time when it was looked down upon and people were sent to places that weren’t so great and were treated very poorly. Being in 2017, it has definitely gotten better but we aren’t perfect, many illnesses are still frowned upon and haven’t been thoroughly researched enough to understand them fully. While I believe we have gotten to a place where people know more than they did, I still believe it is important we continue to educate ourselves and spread awareness. I, being one who suffers from social anxiety and have had my issues with mild depression and nervous breakdowns, it isn’t always easy to talk to people about it, and sometimes it is difficult to share our stories or experiences with others because there is always that fear of judgement or fear that we will be the outcast because of it. Many people who suffer from mental health disorders live normal lives, and work with you and play with you and probably smile in your face at the grocery store but it doesn’t mean they don’t have an inner demon or that they aren’t wearing a mask to get through their day. It is not easy to spot mental health disorders in others and I don’t expect anyone to be professionals at it unless it is their job BUT my goal and hope for all of you is that if someone who know is suffering and trust you with this information, that you can be their light at the end of the tunnel or their ear when they need to talk or their friend when they feel alone— it won’t be easy, God knows, and it probably won’t seem like you are doing anything special for them but from my experience, sometimes knowing that you aren’t a burden to someone because of your illness can make it a little easier. 

 

We all have our own lives to live & our own issues to deal with — I’m not asking people to go out of their way to listen to everyone’s story and play superhero, I just ask that we keep open minded & try to have patience and give what little time we have in our day to a loved one or friend who may need someone to see them for who they are when they aren’t having to disguise themselves in front of the world – because many times if they allow you to see them “raw” as such, it is their way of opening up and hopefully you feel honored knowing this because many hide it and disguise it for a long time & either end up taking their own lives or abuse drugs/alcohol or end up in worse case scenarios. With this being said, I appreciate all of my readers for being supportive of me having to open up to all of you on my blog about myself  and my world and i have had the pleasure of reading and talking to individuals who shared some deeper thoughts/dealt with deeper issues – which in turn helped me to gain understanding and insight into their world. I want all of you to know, I don’t mind being an ear or a friend or being a inspiration to get through the day/ you can count on me to listen and while I might never have the right answers, I will do my best to be there. I love you and I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday.

Week One|Day 4| 6 week Cut program

FitFam!

Hey everyone,

I have some pretty fun news for all of you who have been keeping up with my blog and enjoy my fitness/health post. I have started a new cut program with a fellow YouTuber; we will be doing video updates talking about our results and point of views every Friday – my video on Friday will talk about Mon-Thursday since Fridays I work and my Monday videos will talk about my Friday,Saturday, Sunday results to keep everyone informed on the whole week. She will be posting the video first and then I post the same video on my channel. We have our differences during this program; she will be following a more paleo macro diet.. because she is vegetarian and after watching the program videos feels as though it would best fit this program and I will be following my new macros – which I will share with all of you down below (but will not being eating paleo). Basically, after my first program I did that was 12 weeks long, she contacted me with questions and I made the decision to do another cut with her since she was new to it and it was easier to do it together than to explain everything since there is so many things that go into a cut depending on your fitness level and goals. 

 

She chose the program herself, after doing some research and came up with https://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/jim-stoppani-six-week-shortcut-to-shred.html; which I agreed upon after looking at it. Then we decided that instead of doing it for only 6 weeks, we would do it twice for a total of 12 weeks because she wanted a longer duration. She started 4 days ahead of me because of my busy schedule, and being behind on looking through the program, so she will have more to say than I will sometimes but that is okay and hopefully we will both be able to help others and motivate people and just come out with some good results at the end. Her YouTube channel is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB8r-myh5iyDB5uNms_56yQ & MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL IS: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAIrhf0FpxoQk4F_bznTjIg

So with that being said, watch both of our channels to keep updated on our results and to show some honest support. Feel free to follow us on social media, subscribe to our channel and follow my blog because i will be posting the videos on here as well. 

Today’s Workout

Warm up: 2-3 minutes of jump rope

 
  1. Incline DB Flys: 3 x 12-15, 20 lb.  (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: jump rope)
  2. DB flys: 3 x 12 -15, 20 lb & 30 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: bench step ups)
  3. Cable Crossover: 3 x 12-15, 40 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: squat jumps)
  4. Triceps Pushdown: 3 x 12-15, 70 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: box shuffle)
  5. Standing DB triceps extension:3 x 12-15, 40 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: kettlebell swings -8kg)
  6. Cable lying triceps extension: 3 x 12-15, 30 lb. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: goblet squat – 30 lb)
  7. Crunches: 3 x 12-15. (1 minute of cardio acceleration after each set: running in place)
  8. One arm high pulley cable side bends: 3 x 12-15, 20 lb. (1 minute cardio acceleration after each set: lunge jumps)

All in all, definitely a good workout. I have to use really low weights during the cardio acceleration portion because the point of it is to do it for the whole minute without stopping and the cardio acceleration takes the place of the rest time you would usually have between sets. Definitely a good idea and helps with implementing cardio and strength. Warming up before your workout is very important in this program. I am hoping to blog my other two workouts for ya’ll to see that did in the previous days. Also, I plan on blogging all my workouts for you guys (sometimes I may be late in doing so depending on my work schedule) and sometimes I skip workout days due to having other obligations so those days I won’t be able to log obviously.. but I will do my best to keep everyone posted on each of my workout days. The link to the program will explain what our expectations are each day we do our workouts .. so that might be fun to read and learn about. Again we are hoping all of you will be supportive of our journey to getting shredded  — feel free to leave comments or questions, I will leave my social media media and email at the bottom of this post. Thanks for reading!

FitnessWonderWoman,
