I Work Out

Yes.. Like the song. That one that goes "Uhhh I work out." No clue what the name of it is..

Regardless, this is my initial post about working out, wooh whoo..  Not too long ago, before muh best friend's wedding, I made a goal to get tone and be able to fit into the tiny bride's maid dress we purchased. Wellll.... I failed miserably, at least at the getting tone part. I started off very well but just could not keep motivated. In the end, I fit (quite snugly) in the Bride's Maid dress and lost all motivation afterward.  I stopped working out and started eating a lot more (and not healthy like I was previously.) Needless to say, I noticed a huge difference. I felt more slugish and definitely heavier; I hated what I looked like and did not feel comfortable in any of my clothes (which is currently still true.) I am by no means heavy, I just am not comfortable in my skin.  That is what my journey is about: being comfortable in my own body.

Now that I'm living with my boyfriend and wanting to start focusing more on modeling, I felt that it was time to get in shape (again.) My boyfriend and I are doing home workouts together: Monster Mass Workout by Mike Chang of Six Pack Shortcuts.  I'm not sure that it's the right plan for me yet (my boyfriend loves it); until I've maxed out on this one or feel like I'm not see results, I'm fine with doing it {mainly because my boyfriend is keeping me motivated :x} What's pretty awesome is my boyfriend's motivation at getting us healthy. He bought me protein, a shaker cup, and some other supplements yesterday (forgot what they're called... I'm good at this.)  The company that I currently work for actually purchased the entire company Nike + Fuel Bands; I've been using this all week to track my progress (although I'm not sure how accurate or effective it is.)

Just from eating better and smaller portions (other than lunch... that gets me every time) I feel much better. It's amazing how much your body bloats from eating too much.  I purchased an Anti-Bloat formula just to see how it works. I'm curious.

This is me currently (picture taken on Monday):

As you can tell, I really am not big. I just need to tone and burn the fat away from certain sections of my body {PS: I only take "workout progress" pictures at night. I feel like pictures at the beginning of the day are cheating because you're the skinniest of the day because you've got less water and food!} 

The supplements: 

  • C4 for Pre-workout (I get all jacked off half a serving because I don't do a lot of supplements like caffeine, etc.)
  • Starwberry Whey Protein (Being a vegetarian, I'm mostly excited about this one. I'm glad to be getting more protein in my diet.) 
  • Labrada Lean Body by Jamie Eason (I just started taking this tonight, so I'll update next post.) 
  • Nike + Fuel Band 
  • & my shaker cup. c: 

Here's a picture of my cat laying on our T.V. remote :)

  2. Having your significant other workout with you definitely makes it easier. Unfortunately my husband isn't to keen on the gym. He'll run with me outside but refuses to join the gym. It seems like we have fallen off the healthy bandwagon as well. Next week is a new week. Here's to clean eating! Also, what do you think of C4? Trying to decide if I should invest in some. P.S. Mew is so handsome!

    1. I love working out with my other half! It's great. It's honestly the only way I can get through it. I like c4! Do I think that it's worth the price? Eh. If you can find it on sale or half off, then go for it! I see it essentially as an energy supplement.

      PS: Mew says thank you. c:


I appreciate any and all feedback. Don't be afraid!
