All the birthday eating had me in the gym HARD this week, especially this weekend. Today I did strength training and kettlebell training.
Since I didn’t have anyone to take pictures or videos of my workouts, I took a few random pictures of myself. I did a complete upper body workout to strengthen my biceps, triceps, deltoids, lats, etc., doing three sets of ten per exercise. After that, I did everything for my legs and lower body, again doing three sets of ten per muscle group. To finish up my workout, I moved on to kettlebells, core and abs. I always like to finish strong with an elevated heart rate in order to keep my body burning more calories throughout the day.
My health/fitness/weight loss journey is forever changing and evolving. Adding strength training AND kettlebells to my cardio regimen has changed my body composition and has truly helped me to understand my body better.
I am a body builder. I am a body transformer. This is a lifestyle for me, not a fad or a phase. When I find some old pictures of my old body, my “before,” I’ll explain my journey in further detail so you can see how far I’ve come, how much farther I have to go, and how I will never allow myself to be my “before” self again. This is the happiest my body has ever been, so I can only imagine how wonderful it will feel when I reach my goals.
Stay sweaty, peeps.
