Must…. lift… HEAVIER!

Today has been pretty good so far, can’t wait for the weekend though!

This morning I went to the gym and trained triceps and biceps. *Whewww* Such a struggle! I want to lift HEAVIER! Why is 15 pounds so heavy?! I don’t understand! Then I thought about it, and I think it’s because I don’t eat in the morning before I lift. I work out fasted. I have always heard that fasted cardio is more effective for fat loss, but I’m guessing when it comes to actual lifting, it’s probably best to have something in your stomach.

So today I bought some protein powder after my workout, and I’m going to drink that in the morning before I head to the gym tomorrow. I bought what I usually get, Muscle Milk. We’ll see if there are any noticeable changes, I can’t wait to report back!

My husband wrote the 'You're Sexy' message on the mirror! NOT my daily affirmation to myself, haha!

It’s not that I want to get noticeably bigger, especially my upper body since that’s what I trained today. I just want to lift heavier, less reps, and see if that will help shed the softer layer around my muscles. I’m really proud of my progress thus far! I’m feeling really great! I finally uploaded some progress shots of my legs. Definitely happy with the results. I was afraid by hanging up my running shoes for the rainy season and winter I would pack on fat and layers and lose tone and definition in my legs. NOPE! HIIT training is where it’s at! I feel like my legs are toning and tightening quite nicely.

I think I’m going to rewrite my workout for tomorrow, I don’t want to spend an hour on the treadmill doing steady cardio. I want to take advantage of the Zumba room being empty, do some jump roping, some Zuzka videos and maybe give a little attention to my glutes with resistance band training.

Stay tuned! I will post tomorrow’s workout as soon as I write it. Have an awesome Thursday guys!
