Yeah baby, I’m gymmin’ like there is no tomorrow! I’m on a roll and I LOVE it!
I’ve been sticking to my guns by waking up at 6 am and pulling myself down for a good 1-1.5 hour session each day. I’m proud!
This morning for example, it was pouring down, imagine the apocalypse – that type of weather where it feels like the world is literally going under.
I woke up with my alarm, heard the loud rain beating up the windows and switched off my phone saying to myself “forget it, I’m not going to the gym in this crazy weather”. I went back to sleep.
But for some reason I had like a magic force within myself saying “I can’t break my routine” and “what a failure by being lazy”. So I actually got out in the storm, covered myself in all the rain coats I could find and cycled down to the gym.
I felt like a star after todays work out and would like to tap myself on the shoulder!
The first days at the gym last week were extremely challenging I must admit.
Because I exercise in the morning without eating breakfast I felt constantly light headed and thought I would faint. I had no strength or power to do much and felt like a failure!
I went to the gym shop, crying out my problems and went home with some protein (vegan of course), BCAA pills and recovery stuff to take after each session.
I’ve been taking now BCAA pills on empty stomach first thing when I wake up, and 30 min later when I’m at the gym they start to kick in. They are not made to give you energy but I don’t feel like I’m gonna faint anymore. I do feel more energetic even if it may be a placebo effect – but least it works!
After my stretching I have a recovery drink to gain some strength to cycle all the way home (it’s only up hill 🙁 ) and walk the dogs. After their morning walk it’s time for breakfast by doing fresh vegetable juice. (My 3rd week juicing and I’m hooked!)
Anyway, so far so good girls! I’m so happy I forced myself to get my ass back at the gym, because it makes me feel so much better. God bless those endorphins!
I’m thinking of purchasing some more work out pills or powders. Again, it might all be placebo, but whatever works I’ll buy! What do you guys use that you can recommend? What works and what is a waste of money? I’m so motivated right now I could buy the entire shop I think. Lol.
