Week 5

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I am on week 5 of my bodybuilding transformation. I have one more week to go. I do know that for me the training does not stop. I have enjoyed the chance to do this. I have upped my workouts. Now I do 3 days a week of weight machines. I like that. I have been told by other people that I have nice looking legs so the workouts must be helping. I wanted to lower my body fat % but I do know cardio helps with that and I can't do much of that as I sprained my ankle. Bummer.........But in spite of that I can see muscles growing and I like that. I also have to remind myself that it takes time to build muscles. I was told that by my core instructor. Yes I take a core (abs) class 2 days a week. She has been a weight lifter for years and it shows. Even tho I have one more week to go the training is on going. I love lifting weights.......and using the weight machines. I love how my body is changing for the better. I love the fact I get to redesign my body. I tell people that God gave me this body so I can design it. I have found a new and exciting way to redesign it. I am doing something new called the "healthy lifestyle" bucket list. You get a pretty colored bucket. You write on slips of paper healthy life style ideas. Like adding a new fruit to your diet or trying a new fitness class. Then once a week you pull out a slip and do what is on it. When the bucket is empty you reward yourself with something special. I love this idea and can't wait to do this. I believe it's a good way to keep from being bored with your healthy life style. I also want to include something to do for God in my list. He's been helping me change my healthy lifestyle even more. I love that. I want to put 20 slips of paper in my bucket of things I have never tried before. It's a good way to challenge myself. So for me it may be week in the bodybuilding competition but in reality it is just started and on going.
