Are you ready for a post about all things sweaty? Welcome to my fitness file: March!
This past month has been a sweaty month when it comes to fitness for me. So, let’s rewind a bit and I’ll explain. Awhile ago I went to get a massage. The woman told me she could feel that some of my ribs were out of place and told me I should go to a chiropractor.
Only problem, the one I wanted to go to was busy until April! (More on that experience in April’s Fitness File)
Because I knew I had ribs out, but couldn’t get adjusted until April, I went easy(ish) at the gym this past month. Here are the things that I’ve been loving fitness wise.
Body parts are changing
I may not have a six-pack, but I can feel my abs! I swear, it’s a miracle. I’ve never been big. I’m a naturally slim woman, but slim doesn’t mean fit. I’ve committed myself to getting healthy. I work out regularly and I eat good food. I go to the gym A LOT more than I ever thought I would. Sometimes I find myself driving there after work before even realizing I wasn’t planning on going.
My body is starting to change slowly and I love to see the progress. My stomach is tighter, my booty is getting bigger and my arms are gaining muscle. I need to start taking more pictures, so I can see my progress. My hard work is paying off and it’s because of my dedication to walk through those gym doors. Also, it’s because I’ve stopped eating potato chips for dinner. Instead, I’ve been cooking healthy meals full of good proteins and veg.
I still make sure to treat myself because I’m not about to be one of those people who cut out every sweet treat. I simply couldn’t do that.
The super class that kicked my butt
The gym I go to in Kelowna is an all women’s gym and it’s AMAZING. TWP Fitness holds a class called Legs, Cardio and Core and it’s my fav! It’s 100% the hardest class I’ve gone to and it makes me sweat in places I didn’t know existed.
I look forward to the class every Monday, dread it as soon as I walk in and then leave feeling energized and hungry. I’m always thinking of food, I swear!
The gym has changed the class time, so fingers crossed I’m still able to make it on Mondays because I love it. If you’re a member at TWP Fitness or thinking of joining, you should hit up that class. It’s full of women of different ages and fitness levels. Super welcoming!
The Instagram account I’m obsessed with
Kaley.Kimber — she’s a total babe! I started following Kaley a little while ago and I can’t get enough of her posts and Instagram stories. This beauty is from Calgary, Alberta and she’s a wellness warrior.
Her photographs inspire me to eat well and take care of my inside and outside. Her account is full of quotes, yummy food and fitness inspiration. If you’re not following Kaley, I highly suggest you hit that follow button asap.
Day 11/60 done and I honestly surprised myself today. I’ve been a little unmotivated and not as excited to put in the work lately (maybe some new moon shiz). But wishing for how I want to feel and look doesn’t make it happen. I’m so ready to make that money honey⚡️ And by money I mean sweat and build these little muscles ✌🏼#yougottaworkbitch
The recipe that’s worth a whirl
Nutty no bake bars. That’s right, you heard me. I’ve started to make my own granola bars instead of buying the processed ones at the supermarket. It’s super easy! Almonds, peanut butter, oats, honey, dates and a few other bits and pieces.
I use the recipe on one of my favourite blogs, poppydeyes.com. One of the best things about this recipe is you can customize it to what’s in your cupboard. I didn’t have almonds once, so I used mixed nuts and it was still delicious. Try out the recipe yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
Well, there you have it! Another month has come and gone and we’re onto April now. I’ve seen my chiropractor and this month is all about strengthening my back and core. See your fitness addicted butts in another month.
Shout out to all the ladies working on loving their bodies because that shit’s hard and I’m proud of you.
