So sorry I haven’t updated the blog in the last two weeks, I’ve been super busy with assignments and then I had my march break haha which consisted of eating, Netflixing The 100 (which is an awesome show and you all should get on it) ;). I worked and I’m currently on my 7th week of fitness, in which I also went out and bought new hand weights. I also saw 50 Shades of Grey *laughs*
As you all know yesterday was Motivational Monday here on the blog and it’s also starting to feel like spring here in Canada. Thank god because I’m so over the winter blues. The other day I went out for a run just to find that there was still an enormous amount of snow up in the hiking trails. However now that it’s all starting to melt, they should clear up in no time which gets me super pumped. I love working out outside, feeling the fresh air on my face and just being surrounded my something other than my bedroom walls.
I recently came across a video, that consisted of just your normal everyday, typical women working out. Unlike most commercials we all see dealing with fitness these women weren’t already in shape per say but just starting out. I loved watching it because it allows young women much like myself to see that no one starts out perfect looking. You have to WORK FOR IT!. Dedication is key, you want to have that drive to put everything you have into it or you’ll gain nothing. Trust me Weight for myself has always been an issue and when I first starting dieting heavily my last year of high school, all I did was lose weight because all I was doing was cardio. Now all I seem to be doing is weight training, which is actually a lot more beneficial for you.
Weight training allows you to burn fat, while also gaining muscle, do a bit of cardio, eat right and you’re set. I’m a huge unbeliever of diet pills, or fast hacks those never work and you’ll most likely gain twice the weight you lost right back. Sad but true. Now I’m not staying that if you don’t workout or eat healthy you’re a bad person, no what I’m saying is that eating right and working out allows you to become a better version of yourself. I know it’s hard and difficult and many tears will be shed but it’s worth it. Its worth knowing that once you’re in your 30’s or 40’s you’ll still be healthy.
To end on a positive note watch the video below, it’s finally a fitness motivational commercial, that you’d want to show your daughter, friends, mother. It encourages women to not strive for perfection, because let’s be real no one is perfect. At the end of the day all you can do is try your best and give it your all and I promise something amazing will come of it.
P.s I’m also super obsessed with the song in the video – Get your freak on by Missy Elliott ❤
Fitness little quote I like to go by:
