After 2 weeks of zero workouts, I jumped back in the game tonight. Wanted a lighter workout, something with a modifier, and would ease me back in since I’ve been sick last couple days. Oh yea, 21 Day Fix Extreme Plyo Extreme was not any of the things except the fact it has a modifier (who never seems to be doing too much modification).
I set up my burst mode app for pictures. 10 seconds apart won’t get all the moves. Hell, it looks like I stood more than I worked out.
Everyone normally posts this selfie:
And many leave out the ones in between. Since the purpose of this blog is to show more of the unsexy side… Here are some snaps I got from tonight’s workout. The last is probably my favorite.
Of 187 pictures, there were 10 of me yawning.
At least you can tell I’m moving here…
I’m in motion but look utterly bored
And my favorite gem:
Do I feel better having finally worked out after 2 weeks off? Yes!
Did I end up modifying like I planned in the beginning? NO! I busted my butt on this.
Am I ready for tomorrow? Well, let’s get through today first. But yes, I’m ready for my workout tomorrow, whatever it’ll be.
What’s on tap for your next workout? Leave a comment!!
I’m so excited to finally have this blog up and running. I’ve known for awhile I needed to start a blog. It’ll help me share my thoughts, struggles and goal achievements with you, as well as hopefully give you some inspiration of your own to work towards your goals.
How did I come up with the title? You’re probably asking yourself this… I’ve had it in my head for a little while now. I was listening to a podcast, Your Kick-Ass Life with Andrea Owen, and in one of the episodes she mentioned how no one really talks about the unsexy side of weight loss. It’s always a “Here’s where I was, and here I am now! Boom! Sexy!!!” Well, we don’t go from overweight to sexy in a day. We have to work towards the goal, we have to get unsexy to get sexy, essentially.
After I finished the podcast, I’ve toyed with the idea of how to create a blog, that might one day appeal to the masses, and show the unsexy side of weight loss. Is there already one out there? I don’t know… if there is, that’s their story, this will be mine. Maybe I’ll have some guest writers who want to contribute their own unsexy weight loss journey; maybe it’ll only ever be me. Who knows, a lot can happen. Sometimes I may just link to a podcast I listened to and LOVED – whether it’s badass mentality related, weight loss, motivational, food intake, etc – it’ll depend on what the podcast is and how it affected me.
My goal is to post 1-2x per week, maybe more, maybe less depending on what’s going on – but minimum once per week.
