Felt like writing a quick blog... let you guys know what's new...
So i've been working out at the gym, and i couldn't be happier that i bought a one year membership. :) i've been feeling a bit bulky because i'm lifting more, and eating more protein than i ever have before in my life. i talked to my trainer about it and he said to think about it like this... you still have some fat on you. you lift and your muscles grow, so they get bigger. meanwhile, you have this layer of fat on top of the growing muscle... OF COURSE YOU FEEL BULKY! haha. made perfect sense. he told me to keep lifting and eating more protein, and keeping my diet clean while still working in cardio 5-6 days a week, and that pretty soon, that layer of fat is going to burn right off. said i have to give my muscles some time to do their thing.... so again, patience is key! but at this point in the game, i feel fortunate that i've learned to be patient while giving it all i've got during every workout. as long as i stay focused and eat clean and put in the hard work, i know i'll see the results that i want so badly to see.
Despite feeling bulky tho, the scale has remained at 140, which is cool with me.
I also fit into a size 4 pants the other day. they were a lil snug, so i didn't buy them, but i mean, that's definitely the first time i fit into a size 4 in my life. haha. i'm not a size 4, i know this, but i DID fit in them. lol.
Another cool thing that i noticed recently is that the stretch marks on my hips seem to be fading... they're not as deep or visible. they're definitely MUCH less noticeable than they were a couple months ago. AND the cellulite on the back of my legs seems to be fading as well. LOVING THIS! hahahaha. noticing changes in my body and it's very, VERY exciting!
Anyway, September starts in a few days, and i can't wait. i'm stoked to put in some hard work all month long! KICK IT UP A NOTCH!!!
