So, I officially have 63 days until I go on my trip to Jamaica for Memorial Day.  This means, it’s time to tighten up and get my life together.

This means it’s time to up the cardio, and get in this gym more.  I’m going to try my first 2-a-day today.  God help me, lol.

I’m also cutting back on the carbs…because I really don’t need them anyway…

Welp, let’s see how these next 63 days go! One day at a time……


Fitness Update

The last  couple of weeks have  been horrible to say the least, smh. But I have gotten my motivation back.

Needless to say, work has been brutal, and literally kicking me in the butt.  From working late, to on call hours, and everything in  between; the life of a supervisor has really been a task these last couple of weeks.  As a result, my gym routine has suffered tremendously.  It was getting to the point where I didn’t want to do anything, but go home and sit on my couch.

I have tried a new method, which may not sound like much to any fitness buff, but I have finally committed to working out in the morning, as opposed to after work.  I have only been at it for 2 days; however, I feel like it has increased my motivation to workout and I feel good going to work in the morning!  I think I will make this an everyday part of my routine now, because I love working out, and I want it to be a staple in my life.

Here’s to a new beginning and hoping I can continue to wake up at 5:30 am! Lol.



So, in my quest for a newer, more flexible me, I have began a #Yoga4Growth challenge for February.  So far, I’m on day 5, and have gotten through my first week of yoga!! I am really enjoying it and it gives me some time to myself to unwind and meditate after a long day.

I plan on switching up my routine, and start going to the gym early in the morning, and doing yoga and meditation at night.  Lately, I have been in a rut with wanting to go to the gym, but just being too exhausted from work during the day to even muster up enough energy to make it to the gym. I think adding this component to my fitness journey is definitely helping me keep my body flexible and helping me to relax and power down from long hectic days at work!

Here are the poses and ladies to follow during the journey on IG:

So, I know I haven’t touched base with it on my blog lately, but my fitness journey is still going strong.  I haven’t been perfect by any means, but I am beginning to find my love for working out again, and it makes things so much easier.  I have also kept strong to drinking at least 1 gallon of water a day.  There have been some days where I fall off a bit, I get busy at work and realize that I am behind schedule with my drinking, but for the most part, I am taking in at least a gallon or more, which is awesome.
