Going Back to Getting Fit| About Action

Hey!

I haven’t worked out in some months now. I went to the gym one time last week but it was nothing to really be proud of.

It was hard to get motivated after not working out for weeks. Though I was not working out, I was busy doing other things, so I wasn’t being completely lazy. Also, I ate pretty good most of the time while not working out.

Confession 😦 I have SHAME. I will wear my jacket in the heat if I do not think my body looks right. Well, I really like wearing my jacket too because I’m usually always cold. Besides those times I’m legit cold, I’m wearing my jacket to hide my stomach area and arms.

I say all that because seeing myself in a not so appealing shape, to me, motivates me to workout. I have a certain way I want to look so I put that in my head right along with life is short.

Me talking to myself: You have all your limbs properly working and able to live another day, just get up and do it.

I don’t want to look back on my life and say I should have done that and that and that and that and that.

So yup, here’s my first week schedule. Going back to getting fit.
