Started Phase 3 of LiveFit today.
And today’s workout was Quads and Calves.
It was literally the first time I ever screamed at a gym so hard (this was during 3x30 of squatting in the smith machine) that my boyfriend had to stand in front of me to mentally help me get through it. It was painful, it was tough, it was INSANE.
But I complete it and feel proud. Though I do feel like with yesterday’s back and delts workout with today it kinda killed my lower back a bit so thankfully i’m taking the day off tomorrow.
I don’t know what Jamie Eason was thinking when she made this workout. I’m telling you, the average joe can’t do what I did today. NOT HAPPENING.
Only 4 more lucky weeks to go~*~*~
Sometimes i think my biggest motivation is when people take a strike at my ego.
Specially when it’s people who know what the the hell they’re talking about and tell you the truth just like it is. Helps more if they don’t even know you that well.
Sad but true, it’s people like this that make me think twice about what’s the next thing that i’ll put in my mouth, about the countless times that i’ve said the same ol’ excuse “got-no-time-to-exercise-because-i-got-a-lot-of-shit-to-do-plus-i’m-lazy”. I’m tired of living the lifestyle i’ve been for the last year.
I want my body to the way it was before but 10x better.
You want me to lose 10 pounds? Fuck, i’ll lose the ten pounds of fat and gain 10 pounds of muscle!! I swear by the God i don’t necessarily believe in that I’ll be in the best shape of my life by the end of the semester so when the summer begins I can wear a damn two-piece swinsuit and be proud of what I got, no shame in showing it off.
Last but not least, i want to do this not only for myself, but for my main motivation of all, Ale. He has a plan of his own and has come a loooong way after years of rigurous training and working to lose almost 100 pounds. He has his dream body in mind and wants to work hard for it and well, what kind of girlfriend I would be if I didn’t want to motivate him by doing a workout routine myself, right? He motivates me, i motivate him everyday to keep going, to help him reach his goal so if HE has to do some sacrifices in order to achieve what he wants, i’ll do them too. Because it’s not cool to be with someone who’s working his ass off, both mentally and psychically to achieve his goal and have someone that eats uber unhealthy and just lives a sedentary lifestyle, all while making a point that they can eat all they want and he can’t. He probably would say he doesn’t care, but I know deep inside he wishes he had that extra push. I wanna be just that, all in the meantime I will get this rockin’ body.
