Hi lovelies, I’ve recently joined a fitness collaboration with these amazing ladies Rossy, Sarah, and Courtney. These women are the definition of girl power. They lift each other up to become their best selves. If they fail, they don’t give up. They keep working for their health and happiness. So, I’m so honored to be a part of their collaboration!
We will be posting on the first Monday of every month through December at 8am PST (3pm GMT for Sarah in the UK). Although I’ve failed to make the deadline of my first post. But, nonetheless, here it is!
01. INCREASE MUSCLE MASS
I’ve increased my muscle mass from 31.5 lbs to 33.1 lbs. And, thankfully two pounds of muscle mass was added to my legs! Which, was the game plan. Eventually I want to be a total of 45 lbs of muscle mass. And, be a total of 23 lbs in legs, but right now I’m at 18.89 lbs.
02. DECREASE OVERALL FAT MASS BY FEEDING THE BODY AND THE SOUL
I’ve dropped my overall fat mass from 39.9 lbs to 33.4 lbs! That’s 2 lbs away from my goal of a fat mass of 32 lbs. I’m thinking of of dropping to 28 lbs if I reach 32 lbs early. Plus, I’m not entirely sure if this reading was accurate because I had worked out before the test, but I’m hoping that it’s generally around the same results. I can also proudly say that I’ve started eating gluten and dairy free, so this may also have resulted in weight loss. I haven’t counted calories either because of how busy I’ve been, but trying my best to eat more intuitively.
I still have the same goals above, but I’m adding two important additional ones.
03. EAT FOODS THAT SUPPORT MY HEALTH
I’ve recently gone dairy and gluten free because I believe something that I’ve been consuming has been affecting me negatively, physically and mentally. So, if gluten and dairy aren’t the causes, I want to experiment with other foods.
04. TRAIN TO RESTORE MY BODY
I’ve injured myself with a herniated disc and in turn I have tight hamstrings, calves, and now I believe I also have achilles tendonitis. So, this may mean to take a break from high intensity or strenuous workouts such as jiu jitsu, boxing, plyometrics, or intense leg days, and focus on core, balance, and stretching.
How is your fitness journey progressing? Do you have any goals for this month of September?
