Happy (belated) Easter (:
Since the place where I work was closed yesterday, I had the chance to go to church. My boyfriend attended with me, along with my parents and my niece. We all sat with my boyfriend’s brother. The service was very nice.
After, Cody went to the movies with some of his friends while I spent some time at home. It was a nice change of pace.
Today marks the first day that I’m back hitting my macros and making better life choices. Sadly, due to improper planning I didn’t make breakfast this morning but my lunch was pretty good. I’m also going to start drinking a lot more water. The benefits are too numerous.
Today I’m working the primary election in my home county. I love being an election judge! I’ve always been interested in politics and I like that I get to help other people voice their beliefs (:
Please use your right to vote. We are amazingly lucky to have this freedom and it should never be taken for granted. Too many men and woman have sacrificed normal lives to protect our freedom; we shouldn’t squander it.
My goal with this blog is to document and encourage self improvement, both mentally and physically.
Over the last several years, I have become very lackadaisical in every area of my life. I have made several half asses attempts to change including resolutions and “I’ll start Monday” pledges. I’m sure many people can relate. Because of this attitude, my grades have suffered, I am no longer as for as I’d like to be, and I gained weight that I otherwise wouldn’t have gained.
One of my main goals is to get back in shape again. I’m not horribly out of shape nor am I truly overweight, but I’m not very healthy. In my free time yesterday (aka during my boring class) I made an exercise plan. I’m going to utilize the Nike Training Center app (NTC), the 30 Day Fitness Challenges app, and my local gym that I have a membership to. My goal is to exercise consistently 4-6 times a week focusing on weights and HIIT cardio.
Along with exercising more frequently,
I got my macros calculated by a lady a follow on Instagram, Krissy Mae Cagney. She is not a random person who just posts pictures of herself in skimpy gym clothes. She’s actually pretty badass. I’ll do a follow up post later with links to he site and Instagram that explains what she instructed me to do and why I trusted her. In addiction to fitness and overall health, I’m going to try and be more organized and overall neater.
I’m also going to post about my everyday life, how I make healthier choices, and my ridiculously insane shopping habit.
