In celebration of being part of the tumblr weight loss community for one year, I am having a giveaway! I have gotten so much support, encouragement, and inspiration from here that it only makes sense for me to give back :)
My mom was like “how does your body feel?” and I said “good, because we are going to the gym, like you planned.”
This is so frustrating. I hate having to depend on other people as a way of getting to the gym. I don’t like other people to hinder my fitness progress and I want to get my money’s worth from my membership.
If my mom wants to sleep in, that’s fine, idk why she just doesn’t aim to go at a later time….
Like I said in my wealier posts, my gym has two main rooms…the machne/cardio room upstairs and the free weight room downstairs. (Let me tell you, walking from the upstairs to the downstairs on a leg day?? killer) I’m trying to make myself more comfortable with the free weight room. It’s not that I can’t take being around a bunch of sweaty guys, it’s that I’m a newbie and I’m trying to figure out what I’m doing. I guess it’s just part of my personality where I don’t like to not know what I’m doing and I wish I could learn everything all at once instead of the slow process that learning is. What can I say, I guess I’m just an information whore (totally gonna use that phrase next time someone calls me a nerd).
So my & my mom get to the gym (my little sister stayed up until like 3 am apparently, so my mom let her sleep. she’s coming with us tomorrow though) and I warm up for a bit and use the machines in the upstairs portion to get the majority of my legs day done. I was going to go squat alone but my mom offered to come with me and I really do need help to start out so I was all for it.
Alright so we get there and we’re trying to set it up looking like the blubbering idiots without a clue of what the hell they’re doing. We had someone that worked there show us last time, but he wasn’t very through in his explanation so we were fumbling around with what we were doing. Thankfully, some guy saw our struggle and came to the rescue. He said he was a strength and conditioning coach, showed us how to set it up and explained to me proper form and gave some really good tips. In my head I was like “thank god this guy came over here and saved me from myself.” But hey I’m in the learning process.
After I got home from the gym my friend called and invited me to the beach so I got to spent the day laying out tanning and swimming in the ocean but now I’m exhausted!! Today was a good day though :)
Three things.... 1) YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! 2) Another GINGER <3 <3 and 3) Thanks for following me!!! (: I'd love if you could help me spread the word about my blog!!! Your blog is AMAZO (: Please and Thank You!! xoxo
thank you so much!! anything for a fellow red head! hey guys, go follow her ^^ :)
Just found out that I made the school's kickline team!!
Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! All of my friends are on it and I always wanted to do it but choir is my first love so I never had room in my schedule until now!! Now I get to wear a cute outfit and dance at football games and parades and stuff whoooop.
Okay so tomorrow is my third time going to the gym and it’s time for me to conquer the squat rack all of my own. Wish me luck!
I’m really afraid of nothing haha I don’t know why I even get nervous. New surroundings and all I guess. Hopefully there will be some cuties there like last time.~
Guys look, I finally got training sneakers so I don’t look like a dummy wearing my running shoes in the squat rack! And they were on sale too! Who doesn’t pay retail?! THIS BITCH. Oh and hitchhikers thumb, much?
Funny store though, I bought these shoes while on a date. Read below if you’re curious…
Oh my umm well once I put on white shorts because I thought my period was over and they were my favorite white shorts ever and then my period was NOT over. But fortunately they weren’t ruined and I was at home so no one saw besides my mom haha..
Besides that my period turns me into a bitchy emotional person so I’ve probably said something to embarass myself in that state of mind but nothing that I can remmeber!
I love TMI Tuesday too, it’s so much fun!! Thanks for the question!
