Hello everyone! So I have recently joined a local gym and my gosh I am sore. I joined with a colleague and its great to have a partner to workout with. We had a trainer showing us what to do but as of today we are on our own. So yesterday we did legs, I have found out I have muscles where I didn’t know I had muscles. It hurts but it’s a great pain. No pain no gain! I have gone up a couple pounds but my clothes are loser, muscle weighs more than fat does so I hope the more I work out the more my weight will start to go down. It’s a change of lifestyle that’s for sure. We go to the gym daily even if it’s just to walk on the treadmill. I’m excited to start seeing more results.
So far this journey has had many ups and downs. 1 thing that really bothered me is I’ve been eatting healthier (I cut out a lot of the snacks and chips and sugary foods) the scale wasn’t going down as fast as I thought it should with changing how I ate also with the almost daily walks I had been doing. When I took the measuring tape out and my clothes looked better and were a lot looser it came to me that I was building muscle again. It bugged me that the scale wasn’t going down but people around me even noticed how much better I was looking. It was a great confidence boost knowing others can see it even if I didn’t see it as much. So my eatting is 3 meals a day plus 1 snack. I eat breakfast which is usually a meal replacement because I’m never really hungry. My lunch is usually about 4 hours later and it’s typically chicken salad wrap or egg wrap I try to do protein. My snack 4 hours later is sunflower seeds. And dinner 4 hours later is usually a salad or chicken or something with a lot of protein and low carb. I will try and post some pictures of what I eat as we go along this journey. Feel free to contact me at any time!
