August Fitness Update

It’s time for my favorite post of the month, my fitness update!

During my Strong to the Finish challenge, I got so used to doing fitness updates, so it is weird to be back to doing them only once a month! I really enjoy writing these posts because it gives me a chance to do some reflection and introspection on my own wellness journey.

So I guess the big question is: how have I been doing since the challenge? Really good, thanks for asking!

Since the challenge I’ve …

  • Maintained my weight loss
  • Cleaned up my diet for life
  • Gained a whole lot of confidence

 


I’ve never been so comfortable in my own skin!

I’m not going to say I wake up every day thinking I’m ‘one hundred’ because I’m vulnerable like the rest of you! I have tough body image days. But I’m much less hard on myself now. I love the body I’m in, and I appreciate how hard I’ve worked for it!

My plan moving forward is to spend time improving my strength, focusing on major lifts like squats, deadlifts, and bench.

I’ll basically be alternating between powerlifting and bodybuilding; I’m really looking forward to seeing just how much I can improve over the next 6 months!

 

Back Progress

So how do we maintain the progress that we’ve made? In my experience ya been this: Don’t just make it a habit, make it a lifestyle change. And as cliche as it sounds, it’s true. Embody the change. Don’t try, just do.
And lastly, be persistent. I’m over two years into my journey, and I’m no fitness model, but being in the gym week in and week out has brought me to where I am now, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me!

I believe in every single one of you.

Foolin’ around 🙂

 

Thanks for reading my fitness update! I’ll be posting these updates at the beginning of every month.

 

Until next time folks!
