These past 9 weeks have been such a learning experience for myself. I can’t believe how fast time has gone by! Over these past 2 weeks I have struggled with being a little under the weather, but that hasn’t stopped me from allowing my body to rest a few days and then getting right back into the swing of things. My upper body and back continue to lean out and show definition. My lower half (meaning my legs) are definitely building muscle but not leaning out as quick as I would like. I know that I have to be patient and your lower body and stomach (especially) take longer, these are the trouble/stubborn areas for woman. With this said though my core stability and strength is developing and I continue to chisel away at my ultimate goal! 6 pack abs!
This week I have 2 inspiration pictures, the first has no quote, it’s simply one of my favourite pictures lately of No doubts lead singer Gwen Stefani. She has always had amazing abs, but this picture inspires me in so many ways. I love how Gwen has been a top fashion icon for years and she continues to Rock It. I love the whole outfit, her blond hair in a bun (my old go to do which I’m aiming for again) and beautiful healthy abs. Once I have achieved my fitness goal and have rock hard abs, I will remake this shoot. So in my eyes this picture represents a 1000 words and inspiration.
This week with being on the go and still feeling under the weather, I did not have a huge appetite and found it hard to eat as much as I have been. I made sure to eat as much protein as I could handle and small meals more often. One thing I could stomach was my oatmeal in the mornings. I added berries and nuts to make sure I loaded up on my nutrients and antioxidants. I decided to add juicing this week to make sure I was getting my veggies in my system. My favourite came from an inspiration from Jugo Juice~ kale, spinach, berries and beets, it’s called “Can’t Beet This”. One thing when you are feeling run down or sick is to make sure to stay hydrated, this is even more important when your not feeling well.
I love my second picture quote, I now realize how to incorporate fitness into my every day and there really is no more excuses.There is no such thing as quitting anymore and I plan to finish what I started. All anyone really has to do is get over the mental struggle we all go through and check self doubt at the door. Anyone can accomplish anything the set their mind to. On this past weeks check-in with my trainer Hanan, she asked me to send my pictures wearing a bikini (which was a scary thought). Well I have to say that I bought this bikini that was a few sizes too small a few years back and it’s finally starting to fit. It was so encouraging and exciting to think of bikini shopping for the summer. Alright week 10, I’m ready for you~ BRING IT ON!
