My last post discussed my recent body image problems, I was becoming obsessed with the way my body looked. I was never satisfied, but I have good news. I am officially over it. I love my body in every freaking state it’s in. As long as I’m happy, who cares what the heck anybody thinks. Society has truly crippled the minds of women. We see these flawless women all over television, magazines and social media. We are constantly comparing ourselves to them. When in reality, a lot of the times it’s not real. Let’s start being more focused on being beautiful on the inside. How about that?
In other news, I’m extremely excited to talk about my new fitness challenge with Fitness Guru Mr. Turner (Instagram @fitness_guru__). He’s doing awesome free workouts/personal training EVERYDAY for the entire Houston community this break. He sets out to change this FAT city, even if he has to do it himself. Pretty awesome.
My friend and I met up with him today for a free work out. And I must say, he killed me softly. We did bear claws, crab walks, squats, sprints, and some other exercises I don’t know the name of. Lesson is, he was not playing. LOL Before the workout began he gave us some diet restrictions for the next 30 days. These restrictions include:
No added artificial sugars/ingredients
No fried foods
Must also drink a gallon of water a day.
Sounds crazy, but I’m one day in and feel great. For dinner I had sautéed shrimp and vegetables. Super easy and fits the challenge guidelines. I truly suggest you all join this challenge. I can’t wait to see my progress. Good luck guys. I must drink a gallon of water a day.
Here’s a quick 5 minute work out from his Youtube channel.
