Well this was the last week of my experiment, but i will continue to exercise and improve my health. Partially because i’m locked into a year gym membership. But, i’m glad i’m finally working towards becoming a healthier me and i knew it was in me all along, but i guess i just needed that little push. Hopefully, this experiment has helped everyone else in the same way and i wish you luck if your going to continue in working towards your goals.
Unfortunately, i didn’t make it to the gym today. I guess that just means that i’m going to have to work twice as hard tomorrow.
So, i got in some exercise at the gym yesterday and i’m feeling really good that i’m sticking with it. now i just need to concentrate a little more on how i’m eating.
So, unfortunately yesterday i didn’t get to go to the gym. Instead i got called into work and was there all day. But, i still did get in a little exercise through the week because i did some push-ups everyday before going to work, so i didn’t completely miss out.
So this past weekend i went to the gym and got a great workout:
Friday i worked out my abs, biceps, and triceps.
Saturday i concentrated on my thighs, calves, and my chest.
And now my abs are actually still a little sore, but i felt really good after my exercise. I’ve also been trying to eat as much protein as possible. And, by the way, i did not know that those free-weights would give me calluses that soon, so i had to go to the store and buy some gloves because my hands are way to pretty to be having calluses.
Well, seeing as my experiment is more of a long-term goal, my only real progress may be getting the gym membership and being a little more cautious of what I eat. I did have a setback because I missed a weekend of exercise because I was stressing over some school work that I had to get done, and I don’t think I handled it very well. But, on the positive side I don’t really dread exercising as much as I thought I would, I’m actually enjoying the fact that me and my brother are taking an initiative in trying to get fit. Well my brother already is pretty fit but I just wanted to include him in that statement so I wouldn’t feel alone. But anyway I’m glad this experiment came along because it gave me a push into doing something I’ve been saying I was gonna do for a long time.
Since i mentioned that i need more protein in my system i went out and bought some muscle milk cause my gym had it and i thought it might be an easy was to get some protein. BAD IDEA!!! That stuff tasted like strawberries and metal mixed together. So last night i went and bought some protein bars and protein water mix. Hopefully those 2 things tastes a little better.
By the way, i still have 2 bottles of the muscle milk left if anybody wants them.
So Friday March 2nd i decided to weigh myself and i got my feelings hurt. The number on the scale was so small and i knew i was gonna be that way but i felt i just had to know. i hadn’t weighed myself in years for this very reason. And when i looked at that number i just put my head down and walked away in shame, while my brother watched and laughed. But i can’t be mad at him though because i would’ve laughed at him if the situation was reversed.
