Hi friends! Well, I am officially in a rut...haha I know I know..from the looks of my youtube, instagram, and all things you see, it would SEEM as though I am focused...but the truth is..I am not...my schedule has been a bit of a nightmare...my energy level is low...and I just don't wanna. I honestly think that I just wanted a break, I don't want goals right now haha I know this all sounds a bit extreme, but it is honestly how I feel.
BUT and this is a big BUTT haha
THE one thing I have tried to do is stay consistent, I try to make good choices and I have tried to stay in the gym at least 2 to 3 times a week. I hurt my back pretty bad and haven't done upper body in almost 2 weeks, but I think that I needed a break.
Glutes and hamstrings have been the only workouts I have wanted to do and I am totally ok with that. A change of scenery and a new gym like City Athletic Club has given me the change I needed and allowed me to be close to home and literally across the street from my office..NO EXCUSES.
CHECK out my latest VLOG! I share my most recent ORDER from 1stphorm new apparel, and a full GLUTE and hamstring workout!
This is when going to the gym and staying consistent is the MOST important...mainly cuz it is the hardest. I am making a lot more videos and trying to answer all of your questions in my vlogs! But I wanted to also answer some of those in a blog post for some of you who have asked.
I get asked a lot about what supplements I use during a break like this...because it is important to take a break from supplements but there are some you can continue to use! Since my focus is on building muscle and growing this booty I really try to focus my supplements around this type of workout.
Using a multi-vitamin is 1st and foremost and for the past 6 months I have been using aphacre HD a non stimulant pre workout that has given me that extra umph about 30 minutes prior to leg day. Immediately following I always EAT...protein, carbs, and veggies! Check out my #MEALPREPSUNDAY videos for what I eat! along with food I have been using Ignition to help with feeding that glycogen and maintain that muscle! Like I said I will have some VLOGS touching on this subject but please feel free to email me directly with questions you may have on supplements, apparel, my puppies haha anything!
You can also check out my personal website for 1stphorm and read a little bit more about some of the supplements I love using. I am pretty picky when it comes to this stuff and it is so important to know that making sure your diet is clean and your workouts are consistent is the first step, One of my goals for the upcoming year is to help everyone understand why they do something...because I know for me that was the hardest thing to grasp...I mean WHY do I take this before my workout? Why do I need protein? Which shake do I take after a workout? What should I eat?
oh and if you are interested in what I got from Sephora I also did a little shopping there as well!
I also wanted to share this lovely message I got from one of you guys!!! THIS is what drives me and motivates me....THANK you to all who have supported me and who have taken the step to make their dreams come true...I am so thankful for all of you, 1stphorm and I can't wait to see what this next year will bring! xoxo
