I just finished the first day of level 1 in the 30 day shred. I am proud! I am ready to begin doing 2 day of shreds, 1 day cardio, 2 day shred, 1 day cardio, and 1 day rest. I know it won’t be 30 days total, but hopefully with the extra cardio days added in, I will be able to finish the 30DS with ease.
I will be out of town this weekend, and again in 2 weeks, but I will promise to do cardio/workouts if I am not able to do the shred videos!
Finally. I have finally started to workout again.
Thank you, rude ass bitch, for giving me my main motivation to push myself, to gain better things for me.
Haters gonna hate. Thank you, rude ass bitch, for being the person you are. Since you are the way you are, I was finally able to push myself through two days of workout. I know it’s not much, but just wait until I gain that energy, wait until I gain my strength, the next time you treat me like that I will not let it go easily.

I finally pushed myself hard enough. I went to a ‘Cardio Sculpt’ class at the gym. I went through about 10 minutes of treadmill, 5 minutes of stair masters, and 5 minutes of elliptical before my class. Those two hours of sweat still did not compensate for what that rude little client said to me. Thank goodness I did not over-workout and I woke up this morning sore enough to go through a whole nother workout.

As I woke up this morning, hell yeah I felt sore, but I was still gonna go to the gym. I wanted to take the ‘Cycling’ class today, and I am so glad I tried it. That class kicked my ass. I sweated like crazy, and it hurt so gooooood. Although I stopped at 40 minutes, I know that maybe at the end of the summer, I’ll be able to finish through the pain. I did just a little bit of triceps extensions before, as well as a whole lot of stretching. At least I know I could use 15-lbs for my triceps extensions!
I’m ready to go back into work and talk to my boss about how I was treated. I am definitely not putting up with people like that. If we have clients like that, I will choose to quit at the end of summer. I will do what I need to do, to not be treated and disrespected like that. I’m glad I got that final push, I’m glad I’m finally starting to do this. I’m gonna work my ass off, to prove you wrong you prissy old ass fuck.
I’ve been so lazy to do an actual workout …
When will I ever start my every day workout .. ? ):
I said I was going to start my new schedule but I never did. I should go check out my cycling class today, but I would have to sign up for it and I’m not even sure if there is still room for me to take the class … I’ve been looking up lululemon clothes and GAH they’re so expensive!
I wish I could really push myself to start working out again .. maybe tomorrow …
I haven’t been posting exactly what I’ve been doing, but starting on Sunday I will have a new calendar schedule, so stay put with me! I am not giving up on actually trying to work out almost every day. Hopefully I will be more motivated with my upcoming schedule. My new schedule will include taking ‘cycling’ classes at 24-hr fitness, and more running, on the treadmill/elliptical/stair masters. I’m also going to try to take pilates and yoga-lates (yoga & pilates). Here is what my new schedule will look like!
SUNDAY - Yoga @ 9AM
MONDAY - Cycling @ 6AM — Treadmill / Elliptical / Stair Masters
TUESDAY - Undecided
WEDNESDAY - Cycling @ 6AM — Treadmill / Elliptical / Stair Masters
THURSDAY - Pilates @ 9AM — Yoga-lates @ 8PM
FRIDAY - Cycling @ 6AM — Treadmill / Elliptical / Stair Masters
SATURDAY - Undecided
There are no actual “work out” days, but since these classes are all in the morning, I will try to workout at night. I want to just start off like this maybe for the first two weeks so I can get use to the difficulty I’m adding into my schedule. Hopefully after the first two weeks I can also start working out daily in the evening after work on Mon, Wed, and Fri.
P.S. I’m going to take cycling classes until I am finally able to finish the goal of what the instructor has given to me. Or until I feel as if cycling is no longer helping me strengthen myself.
Day 3 (ish)
Omg … my legs were in so much pain when I woke up this morning! I could barely move! but that only means my legs did work last night!
Since I wasn’t planning on doing a full work out today, I decided to work on my abs! After looking around YouTube, I couldn’t find a video that I actually wanted to do. Instead I did the Bikini Blaster Awesomesauce Arms video! My arms are a lot stronger than my legs so my arms did a little bit of work today! I didn’t want to work too hard today since my legs couldn’t really cooperate. I was barely able to do the beginning jog and skipped out totally on the push-ups at the end of the video, but I did most of the arm workout!
P.S. I’m still going for Djokovic in the final! <3 (:
Sadly to say, my day 2 was a little over a week pass day 1…
I’m still trying to get the hang of working out (a little more often).
Today’s workout was definitely a challenge for me. It was a lot harder to go through my workout since I barely had anything to eat (I’m not starving on purpose). This morning I had a PB&J (strawberry) sandwich. The one that comes from the grocery store — the uncrustables or noncrustables or something like that. I had work from 10-3 today and all that time I was hungry .. but we have no lunch breaks on Saturday. So after work, instead of getting something to eat, I had to take my mom to the optometrist to find some new glasses, but that didn’t really work out. So when I had finished running errands with my mom, I ended up not hungry anymore. Went home and took a slightly longer nap than I had wanted too. Woke up and decided to go to Academy because my boyfriend wanted to see how their ping pong table rates were. Had a coconut jelly thingy (Asian food). After that we headed to Target to make my first ‘healthy’ grocery shopping list. Bought a bunch of stuff — fruits even (I don’t really know how to pick fruits)!
So as you can see, I didn’t have much to eat today ): but here is what I did for my workout!
Ran a mile ~ 15 mins. / incline 3 / fastest 5.0
I had help from bodybuilding.com today! Did some extra work on my legs!
Freehand Jump Squat = 2 sets / 10&7 reps
Plie Dumbbell Squat = 3 sets / 10 reps
Narrow Stance Leg Press = 3 sets / 12 reps
Stiff-Legged Dumbbell Deadlift = 2 sets / 10
I wasn’t able to do all the things/sets/reps exactly like bodybuilding, but that’s not the point! I pushed myself to do all the things that I could do, and now I can only improve!
After my workout, I was SUPERDEEDUPER HUNGRY. So I went home and made a salad with spinach, croutons, a little bit of caesar dressing, mushrooms, and roast beef. YUM.
P.S. I know I’m not doing the greatest at everything, or eating the healthiest. But I am trying my hardest to change a little bit at a time. This is my start. It’s only been day 2. I don’t push myself enough sometimes. I get lazy sometimes. It’s a hard start. But if you do wish to follow me on this journey, please know I will try not to let you down. I will do this for myself and however long it takes me to get to where I want to be.
My official day one was today! I woke up a little early by accident today. My two little rascal cats were being rowdy and broke a bowl ): Woke up around 7:45AM just to wake up my boyfriend to have him clean up the mess (: hehe — fell back asleep a little later for a little nap before work. All I had for breakfast today was about a cups worth of Bolthouse Farms Mango Lemonade. OMG SO GOOD. Probably my favorite drink of all time! (: — what a long and slow day it was at work today D: wish I had a more fun or a more time consuming job … — ate lunch with my boo @ Jason’s Deli! Had a quarter of his Chicken Panini, and about half of my Chicken Pasta Primo! Mm, super yummy! Had a garlic toast, and some nuts/sunflower seeds, and a little under half of a root beer float! T’was not a good day of healthy foods … — after I got off, I went home to play a little D3 with my boyfran :D, waited a little late to get ready but here’s my first day of work!
Ran a mile ~ 15 mins. / incline 2 / fastest 4.5
Stair-masters ~ 5 mins / lvl 5 / 15 floors
2 sets of 10 w/ 10lb for tricep dips?
2 sets of 15 w/ 2 5lb-er of what Gary wanted me to do
& also 5 minutes on the “backwards bicycle” machine / 281 revolutions
I had a hard time on my run today. Hopefully by the end of the summer I can run a mile without having to die. One of my goals is to be able to run three miles without stopping. I would walk/run/walk/run and so on for awhile. My shoulder also started hurting at .70 miles … ): Sighhh, my arms were sore from doing what Gary showed me to do, so maybe I’ll increase the number of reps from my tricep dips. Also another goal is to be able to reach 300 revs on the “backwards bicycle machine”. So far, two goals to go!
After the workout, Gary, Aadrian, Wing, and I decided to go eat at Berryhill. Not a good choice for after a workout at all ): I just hope it’ll be okay for me and I can just work it off tomorrow. Slowly trying to get into this ‘eating healthy’. It’s so hard to eat healthy when you can’t cook in your own kitchen, or when you just don’t have the time. Hopefully I can buckle down a little on the healthy eats! (:
