I love days like today.
First, work was wonderful. It was a pretty busy day and most of the customers seemed to be in a good mood:) What made work even better though were my co-workers. I work with some pretty amazing people. There were a lot of laughs today and a lot of forcing each other to dance. I was very willing to dance though of course:)
After work I came home, had some fruit and then proceeded to work on my guns <—-sorry about that! It was a great workout thanks to Katy Perry radio on Pandora and the increases in my weight for bicep curls I was able to do today:) Gotta love that!
[a little background] I have been very into fitness for about 3 years now. I’ve enjoyed lots of running, circuit training, a lot of bodyrock, hot y0ga, and pilates, with some random weight training thrown in as well. I’ve had great results from all of these things but what I was really looking for was to gain/build more muscle. So for the past several months I focused on more weight training. But guess what?!?! I still was not getting the results I wanted. For one I wasn’t eating enough (more on that at another time!) but also I was doing a lot of cardio. Mostly jump rope and HIIT with a few runs a week. Why was I doing that? To be honest I was very afraid of cutting out cardio because I thought I would blow up like a balloon. That’s just me being crazy since I know that wouldn’t happen but I was still scared. But I finally did it! One month ago today actually I switched up my workouts to all heavy weight training and cardio only once a week. That cardio being no more than 20 to 30 minutes of a mix of jogging and sprinting. Let me just say WHY DIDN’T I DO THIS SOONER!! I’m not only seeing results I’m also feeling sooo much more confident. Lifting just makes me happy:)
Anyway, sorry for that long paragraph, but if you are reading this and you are wanting to really build muscle I would suggest cutting out most of the cardio if you haven’t already!! It’s so worth it:) It’s been working for me anyway!
