Work, Workout, Work on…

Hi Everyone! I’ve been wanting to post an update to my workout routine, lately. I’ve been pushing myself to exercise as much as possible during the week. What does this mean in Stacey-terms? 

I recently got a temp job as Event Coordinator for a local business, so I’ve been working part-time hours, but really more like full-time hours by the time you factor in my 3 hour daily commute to and from work. It’s a pain in the ass, but I’m pretty good at my job, so that is a plus. With that being said, I’ve been really trying to workout every night once I get home from work. I’ve been pretty diligent in my exercising, and eating, as well. I haven’t been eating fast food (which I normally rarely do anyway). It’s a lot easier when the husband is out of town since he’s a temptation in my life when it comes to eating unhealthily. (He’s got a super fast metabolism and a very skinny, yet muscular frame, so he’s lucky!) 

I have been sticking to a very strict diet of fresh fruits, greek yogurt, spelt bread, lean meats like turkey, and veggies that I snack on throughout the day, like carrots. It’s gotten easier as time has gone by, but training my body to enjoy eating healthy foods is still a struggle. I usually give myself a sweet a day, like a brownie, or a cookie. I know, this isn’t the best, but it works for me, and keeps me honest. i’m a sweets girl at heart, and that isn’t ever going to change. 

I’ve also tried to incorporate mini-workouts throughout the day (not at work, but when I’m home on weekends or longer days at home during the week). This usually consists of squats and lunges, some punching for some upper cardio, and anything I want to throw into the mix. Just about 10 reps of each (more for upper work) a few times a day. I feel like this really helps keep me from not wanting to workout, which is sometimes a really difficult thing to get over.

I’m constantly working on all of this, though, I’m not perfect, and have a long way to go. But overall, I feel a lot more healthy, and I feel like my body is getting to a better place for me. I don’t have an ideal weight or size in mind. I just want to go by feeling. I’ll know when I’ve hit my peak. It’s going to be tough to maintain, but I’m willing to put in the work.

Delay

So my love was supposed to be home tonight, but that darn hurricane delayed his flight until tomorrow. 

I miss that guy so much. The longer we’re together, the more we learn about each other. I know that seems pretty obvious, but it’s really amazing. I love to pick his brain, hear his opinions, find out about his day, and just listen to his thoughts, in general. I don’t think I’ve ever been so interested in someone, before. 

As much as it was crazy that we got married on a whim, it was the best decision I’ve made in my life up to this point. He makes me happy, happier each and every day. Sometimes we fight, but damn, do I crave his touch and miss him even when I want to kill him. His work ethic/dedication amaze me. He busts his ass just to make a life for us. I admire him so much. 

Sorry to be sappy, but I had to. I just had to.

Workout Update

Trying to exercise everyday is tough. I woke up today and I didn’t want to work out at all. I went and got m second brazillian, ever, and that was a much better experience, but I came home and just fell asleep on the couch. I had zero motivation. (I also desperately need to clean our place before Thursday, when my sister-in-law comes over to help me bake stuff, and Thursday night when the love of my life returns home for a week.) 

So after I woke up, and wasted more time, I finally got up and did it. I used Week 3 of the 30 Day Shred. I might have done this once before a couple years ago, ONCE. It was pretty damn difficult, but I pushed myself and got through it. I’m so glad I did it, because now I feel like I’ve accomplished something today, and that feeling will continue on in other areas.

Am I talking myself up? Yes. Am I doing it so I can motivate myself to do dishes now? Yes.

Two Weeks of Working Out

I’ve been doing my best to push myself, lately. 

I started back in May doing a Boot Camp class a couple times a week. Of course, I missed a couple weeks, went back, and then haven’t been back, since. BUT, all was not lost. 

I continued working out at home. How, you say? I personally LOVE Jillian Michaels. Her workouts are tough, but motivating, and definitely doable. For the past two weeks (a little more, but more consistently over the past two weeks), I have been working out to multiple Jillian Michaels workout videos. I’ve been using any of the videos I could, at various levels, to keep things fresh and keep myself from getting too comfortable. I’ve also been trying to eat better, as well, which not only means what I’m eating, but portions, as well. 

I feel like I’m making so much progress. I’m feeling the results, and seeing them. I’m particularly excited to get my buns and thighs in shape. I’m a white girl, with little boobs and a little butt, on a bigger body, so getting a booty is like obtaining the holy grail. 

Two weeks from now, I hope to have made even more progress. I am serious about making this the summer of sexy in my life. If you’re on Snapchat, you can follow my journey, as I selfishly snap myself after most workouts.
