Sooo I thought it might be fun if I started doing a couple of inspirational questions once and a while to get some extra positivity in some peoples lifes! So here the question:
What is something that you are working toward that is a challenge for you and also a goal?
Here we go:
For me, I am going on my workout journey. I only weigh about 90 pounds currently, and I’m 14, so I already am pretty light lol.
I want to get abs and build up both my arm muscle and my leg muscle, so I am doing Chloe Ting’s 2 week ab workout…It’s gonna be a challenge for me lol but it’s one that is going to be worth it.
My purpose in doing this may come as a shock, not only am I doing it for myself and for my sport, but I am also doing it for my mom. She wants to start her weight loss journey, but hasn’t felt too motivated to do so. So I am hoping that if I can complete and accomplish my workout goals, hopefully it will motivate her to think that she can do it herself
So now I am planning to have good eating habits and I am planning out some better sleep-schedules and also some runs around my neighborhood.
As some of you might know, I currently do motocross which is dirt bike racing, and if you think that it doesn’t require any muscle…well…then you are wrong. It is one of the hardest and physically challenging sports out there, and if I am planning to race next year, I need to do some conditioning.
I decided to keep track of my progress here, that way you this can be shown as an inspiration for anyone else who wants to be able to do it, or follow along with me!
Day 1: Just finished the workout, my abs are killingggg meee! Honestly it wasn’t as bad as I was thinking it was gonna be! But I know how worth it the end result is gonna be! (Completed the full workout without stopping )
Day 2: Feeling the burn a little bit more than the day prior, probably because my muscles haven’t been worked in a while haha! (Completed the full workout without stopping )*
Day 3: Feeling a bit better overall. My core and whole body already feels much stronger, and the results are begining to show! (Completed the full workout with one or two short 5 minute breaks in between workout videos )
Day 4: Today was a rest day, which was well needed lol. I got time to go on 2 runs around my neighborhood and really enjoy the beauty of the world without feeling too tired and stressed out about life.
Half way there! Keep going! You got this!
Just remember that a healthy diet is just as important as working out. You won’t lose any weight/get stronger if you are eating junk food all of the time. Starving yourself is not the answer either, but make sure to eat a healthy salad and stay away from super sugary snacks. If this is too difficult for you at first, then that is totally ok! Just limit yourself to only one “cheat day” a week and make sure to incorporate some good nutritious food into your daily diet. Remember, diet = exercise, exercise = diet, exercise + diet = healthy habits!
