A Trip…A Wedding…A New Semester…A New Routine

I have been away from the blog world for awhile but life has been keeping me busy.  For the past months it has been work, school, and married life.

The month of August was my religious holiday, Ramadan. Basically, I am not eating from sun up to sun down. It is really hard, especially, when you are used to eating six times a day, drinking water all day, and working out 4-6 times a week. From being off the routine for a month I gained 5 pounds and felt totally out of my element.

But now I’m back. Its been 3 weeks and I have been working my butt off, not literally though, I’m trying to get it a little more perkier, lol. The reason why Im training so hard is because I was going to my cousins wedding tomorrow and I needed to make sure I was at my best. I did cardio 6 times a week and payed attention to everything I put  into my mouth. I ended up loosing the 5 pounds and gained more insight into my health regime from my dedication. Now I am going to Egypt, and I’m hoping to continue my exersice routine while Im there, especially since I will be around all that yummy food. My goal is to come back and go full speed.

Some of my goals:

  • Have a more balanced diet ( I eat really well, but I want to make sure I am consuming the right amount of carbs, protein, dairy etc)
  • Incorporate interval strength training routines
  • Loose the “pooch”
  • Not becoming obsessive

How will I do this?

  • Lots and lots of reading.
  • Observing at the gym
  • An “I Can ” Attitude

More to come..

Fitness is BACK and Tired of Mother $%*#ing Nature

 

health diet fitness, womens health, menstrual cycle

So I have had a two week hiatus from fitness nutrition :-/ It is AMAZING how events in ones life can completely drain and demotivate you. How a period can throw you completely off course, well at least in my case. Last week was more of a personal problem that deterred me from the gym this week it was HER that evil women, mother nature, who I oh so love and hate at the same time. She makes me cry, get angry, eat guava pastries, and just sleep. She did this to  me, and I did it to myself, I know but she is still an evil women.

Now I have to get myself back on track somehow and kill it!!!!!! How… I have come to a point where I feel I have lost all the progress I’ve made in the past few months. I have to STOP feeling sorry  for myself and just freaking do it.

 Now for the Power Song of the Day. It is not really a Powersong it is very intense and eery but it is more of a song I am feeling right now.
