Meanwhile in Quad City

I’m on day 2 of this new weight lifting program, Body Beast, and I am in love. IN LOVE. I must buy all the weights!!

Today my 12’s were just not cutting it for legs. WAY too light.

Plan: sell the majority of my Tiffany & Co collection aka obsession and put the money toward adequate workout equipment. If you follow me on Poshmark then you’ve probably seen my dirty little secret of a stash. LOL.

I could easily buy all the shiz I need if I successfully talk myself into parting with the stuff I don’t wear. For real! Why do I keep it!? (recovering hoarder/minimalistic life chaser) baby steps, right!? Going through and making moves in that department tomorrow. Got my girl Milly (whom I met via Poshmark over a year ago) to hold me accountable to that.

I always get asked if I’m planning on doing some sort of fitness competition and the answer is no. I am just trying something new for myself (for now).

I initially chose this program to help me gain muscle mass aka “bulk” EEK. Sounds weird when I say bulk because I’m a just a wee little lady. And to be completely honest I am so out of my element and uncomfortable right now because everything feels so foreign to me!

I have not established a routine that works for me yet and although it’s only day 2 it’s freaking me out! Creature of habit right here. All we can do is our best and take it one step at a time right? One foot in front of the other.

Working out the kinks of the meal plan and understanding how to properly eat everything within my IF window but to be real – it’s a lot of food.

Change can be so intimidating, right? Like to the point where you want to sprint back to the comfort bubble safety zone!? That’s exactly how I feel.

It’s totally normal to be nervous. I’m sure I’m not the only one that hears a little voice of self-doubt that tries to tell you that you can’t do it or that it won’t work. We’ve just gotta punch self-doubt in the face every damn day and keep pushing forward because we deserve whatever we desire.

If you’re willing to take a chance and fail forward I will continually support you. Believe me when I say it’s easier together. There’s a lot of strength that comes from just knowing that you don’t have to do it alone. I’d love to be a part of your journey and have you a part of mine. Teamwork and support!
