Sluggish because I haven't been able to ”GO”. I didn't realize how much that can affect the body. 1 mile and 26 minutes was all my body give. Feels like just a waste. Better tomorrow, hopefully.See this image largerSpinach, kale, quinoa and chicken soup because I’m sick and need food to fight off this unwanted illness. I did, however, manage to get the gym this morning and workout for 1 1/2. But now I am going to turn in and pray I’m well enough In morning to hit the gym. 😘😘❤️❤️See this image largerThis was me out tonight. Was really afraid to go out. I didn’t wanna be seen but I wanted to see other people. These past 7-8 months have been hella traumatic! I started hiding and feeling very ugly. I had never felt like that before. My therapist encouraged me to make myself up and post a picture. So I did. Still fighting for the joy I know I deserve. I’m getting there. It’s a process. There’s progress.See this image largerSee this image largerGood morning mates! I trust you all have a great week thus far. I hope it gets better. Meanwhile, one of the staff members at PF showed me my picture of when I first joined last year. She told me that she didn't recognize me. I asked to see the picture and suddenly wanted to burst out into tears. Here is why...See this image largerI forgot to post this the other night. My goal is to eventually be able to walk/run a mile in 10 minutes.See this image largerDecided to go my girlfriend’s bday celebration. Once again, I moved past my anxiety. I felt really emotional because I had just gone out last weekend and was afraid to go out last night. But I did. I am getting through all of this. I’m going to be okay. I bought these shoes in 2014 and never wore them because they hurt to walk in. Now they are comfortable on my feet and they didn’t cause any discomfort one bit. Small victories matter.See this image largerI couldn't force myself to eat so this had to do. Now it is pretty good going down but it leaves an after taste for a couple of seconds. It is tolerable considering I just needed the nutrition.See this image largerToday was a slow day on the treadmill. But the funny part to this day is that my Sun has challenged me. We are in competition. He can do a mile in a little under 10 and that is my goal. So... I'm coming for him this week. He will RUE the day! Lol 😆See this image largerHi everyone. I'm still here. Just been getting my life together. Hope you guys have been doing well!See this image largerHappy Hump Day SparksFam! I should have screenshotted the before but I didn’t think about it. But I stared at 5:50 A.M. and finished at... see below. I’m pretty proud of this. I mentioned before that I’m coming for my Sun. I am getting ready for him. Have a Wonderfully Wondrous Wednesday!See this image largerThis is the text conversation between my son and I just now. I sent him the screenshot of the mile and time I did this morning. He’s such a smart ass! 😂😂😂😂😂😂See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerNot as many steps and miles as yesterday. Mostly walked then I ran a little. But I came home and did some kettlebell strength training. Needless to say, I am tired and I must eat. See ya later.See this image largerMy flourless banana oats pancakes with a side of turkey sausage.See this image largerGood morning. I just wanna say that the military guy who invented the Burpee and whoever the heck invented the Turkish Get Up are Satan’s minions. That is all!See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerMy grandSUN and I last night. I don't get to see him as much as I'd like to but I make the most out of it when we connect.See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerGreetings SP! Still on it. Some days are harder than others. 1.5 miles. With 4 minutes of power walking to warm up and I ran the rest of the way. My endurance is increasing. I kept thinking this is the point that I get tired but I didn't. I was shocked. Then finished it off with 40 minutes of abdominal work. I'll strength train tonight. Stay Beautiful and Safe! Happy Friday! ❤️❤️❤️See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerAnd I'm spent.... Tonight I did 30 minutes of my own strength and cardio routine. I'm pretty proud of that as I have been trying not to be so dependent upon working out to others’ videos. This will also make my second time working today. I did 24 minutes of cardio and strength this morning. I want to get back to an hour a day before RONA happened upon us. Peace, wealth, many blessings and good health to you all.See this image largerSee this image larger#BeforeAndAfter I had to put on some makeup just so I could feel better than I had been feeling earlier this morning. I wasn't sad or anything. I did not feel ugly. I felt something else that's indescribable. I'm not sure what it was. I think I needed some color. Black and white is the best way I can paint what was going on inside me. The most accurate description I can give. Does that make sense? Anyone else feeling Black and White?See this image largerI'm yoga tired!See this image largerSee this image largerThis is one of my favorite memes. 😅😅😅 See this image largerI don't know why this was the face. 😅😅 Anyhoo, though I do like to come up with my own routines, I recently discovered PopSugar workouts on Youtube. I was searching for a Zumba routine and there they were. It's an awesome channel with 100s of great workouts. So I now have two go-to channels. Fitness Blender and PopSugar. Go check them both out if you aren't familiar with them already. Neither will disappoint.See this image largerMy personal trainer kicked gluteus maximus today. That's not even half the sweat that I produced. This was taken after my cool-down stretch. I'm so proud of myself. My knee strength is increasing which is amazing because I have an injury from when I was much much much much younger. I can do lunges better. Push-ups are getting better too. This is the encouragement I need to continue. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it's the small accomplishments that matter. Piece and safety to you all.See this image largerPost a pic of yourself wearing red lips stick and a smile.See this image largerI did this one tonight. I almost did not work out today. But as I was in bed thinking of how far I've come, I just had to do something. This one revealed how very uncoordinated I am. Lol 😆. It was a good one.See this image largerI completed this tonight. Two rounds plus three round warm-up and stretching. Needless to say, my legs are shaking. Gonna feel on the morrow.See this image largerRepeat ThriceSee this image largerMy Sun, grandSun, and the daughter-in-Love came to see me today. That is the reason for the simile.See this image largerI did two rounds of this No-Nonsense Circuit this morning. Last night I tried it and could only do one round. I'll do the last round later today. I'll keep trying until I can do all three rounds in 30 minutes.See this image largerHere is one I plan to do in the future. I have to master the others first.See this image largerBeen a minute since I took a stroll.See this image largerPost-workout meal. Turkey salad.

I’m working with her on moving more. I am so proud of her. This is why.See this image largerSo this was two circuits combined. I did two rounds and was going finish off with a third round until I started to feel as if I was going to vomit! Yep! Maybe... Too much?!See this image largerSee this image largerHappy Sunday, Finally got a fitness watch to help on this lasting health journey.See this image largerWelp it is almost time.See this image largerThank you all so very much for your prayers and positive energy. The procedure was successful. I am in a huge amount of pain though. I have to rest and heal. That’s what I’m doing. You all have a great weekend. 😘See this image largerMy sister had this idea and...See this image largerMet my goal. Started working out this week since the surgery two weeks ago. Still have to go easy but I’m going.See this image largerMy sister got married this past Friday. I was her maid of honor. Me with the best man.See this image largerI actually workout more than I post. I did this this evening doing a Fitness Blender Kettlebell Routine.See this image largerI haven’t done Pilates in a looooooong time. I forgot how hard they can be. Plus, I used resistance bands. Whew! I needed that lower body workout badly though. Off to try and sleep.See this image largerI have decided to do rigorous strength training. I’ll still do cardio but in order to get where I want to go I have to build more muscle. I also I have to limit how many days I low carb. That is gonna be tricky for me. I have to bite bullet and and eat more meals. Ughhh! I’ll do it though. But today I did 50 minutes of upper body strength training. Tomorrow, leg and core day.See this image largerThis was dinner last night. Zucchini fries with nightshade free let ketchup.See this image largerMan oh, man!

Tonight I used resistance bands. For some great interval strength training, go follow @kikivhyce on Instagram. She has awesome routines and she is gorgeous.See this image largerBefore my workout. I felt okay today.See this image largerI try to workout at least an hour 5 days a week. I was only able to workout for 47 minutes tonight. My head and hip were hurting and I am just so exhausted. However, I was glad to have been able to do as much as I did. Tomorrow will be a better day. I won’t be hard on myself because I did my best this evening. Sometimes I forget to go easy on myself. Good night. Sleep well.See this image largerOh, before I go to bed... This is protein plant and collagen powder from Laila Ali’s health line, “Youplenish”. I take collagen daily but ran out last week and decided to order from Laila. Now this one dissolves perfectly in water without any powder residue. There is no funny taste or smell. This is the best one I have had. The protein powder is great as well. Good flavor. Made of pea protein. Lots of nutrients. I’m hooked.See this image largerThis is my smoothie process. I put in my Plant protein powder by Youplenish, monk fruit sweeter, unsweetened carob powder, ground ginger, blueberries, strawberries, celery, kale and almond milk. I shake it well then I shake all the ingredients. (😅😅). Then blend to perfection. I know they don't sound good together but it does taste wonderful once all the ingredients are blended smoothie smoothly smooth. I don’t why I chose this margarita glass tonight. 🤷‍♀️😅See this image largerI did a thing...See this image largerAll of this time wearing these shoes and low socks and never before have they had my ankle bleeding. I had to come home, mend my wound, but on my other shoes and start walking again.See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerAnd I am done for the day. 42 minutes of strength training. Time to eat and rest or whatever.See this image largerAnother cauliflower pizza with chicken sausage, kale, garlic, garlic, broccoli, cheddar, colby, mozzarella cheese, and nightshade-free sauce. It's so good!See this image largerOkay so today’s workout was good. I did a kettlebell routine. Kbells are my favorite. Anyway, that went very well then on to stretching. I was doing really good when suddenly I felt extremely light-headed. Then I started salivating and I felt as if I was about to ”Call Earl”. So I stopped. I was going to push through but I remembered to listen to my body. I didn't wanna faint in a pool of vomit. I did the wise thing. I didn't get the full hour I wanted but 56 minutes isn't bad. Happy Sunday!See this image largerYour full name. I am going to this now. You try.See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerI took it light today.

This what I did repairing my porch.See this image largerGood Monday Morning Everyone! Today I began Insanity. I completed the program years ago. However, I was not eating properly and I was drinking a lot. So I decided this morning that I will complete this program once more. Though I do workout often, Insanity challenges my body and its endurance. This was the program that had me doing REGULAR push-ups, so I want to get back to that. Today was Fit Test day. I see where I need to improve. And I’m willing...Good vibes to you all!See this image largerGood Morning Everyone! Before. Activity. After. After close up.

I'm older now so weight training is very important for my bones. Even more so than cardio though cardio is extremely important. Now I just have to stay on top of my diet. I don't eat unhealthy, however, what I do consume, I tend to go a little overboard. Portion size it is. 💪💪💪 See this image largerWeek 3/Day 3 #InsanityPureCardio and #InsanityCardioAbs Tomorrow is going to be ROUGH!See this image largerI didn’t use my watch today.

Weight lifting. Then cardio. Then abs. I’m exhausted. But I’m getting stronger and can do push-ups longer than before without going to the modified version right away. I can lift heavier. I was shocked. I didn’t do well eating today. I snacked today. Not proud of that. Perhaps I needed more because of what was on my schedule. I guess. I’ll get right tomorrow though.See this image largerWeek 4/Day 2-#Insanity Week 3/Day 2-#LIIFT4See this image largerI forgot to show you all the low carb enchilada pie I made Sunday.
