Despite having a long (although enjoyable) day, I still made time for my workout! I personally try my best to workout at least 15 minutes a day, because not only does it help me burn off calories for the day, but I also feel so amazing afterwards. The endorphins from working out give me a better feel good “high” than anything. Even when I am not always in the mood to get up and workout, if I go, it always tends to snap me out of any depression and into a positive mindset.
Most days I workout at least an hour, but if nothing else, a short, but intense 15 minute workout does the trick. Today ended up 40 minutes. I just received my barbell along with two 5lb weights and two 10lb weights in the mail. The 8lb dumbbells I had been using for curls and tricep work were AWFUL. I have been needing to do nearly 20-30 reps of each move because I needed higher weights, but unfortunately lacked the money. Thankfully, I had a bit extra this month, so it was time to up my weights, something I severely needed to do. I went from working my triceps (which happen to be my weak area) with 8 lbs to working them with 20lbs. Super proud of that. Also did 30lb barbell squats and a mix of other weight lifting alongside two sets of Zuzana Light’s ZWOW #17.
(Man, I really dislike my smile)
