Wanted to give all my readers an update on my workouts…
I have been hitting the gym, at least, three times a week. I am seeing muscle gain and noticing a slightly slimmer waist. While I am not hitting cardio hard, I am still noticing many changes that is fulfilling my overall goal.
I will need to start up my cardio again if I want to see an increase in weight loss and an increase in cardiovascular health.
I will be posting pictures soon. I want to document this change as much as possible. I encourage you to challenge yourself and push yourself to the limits.
What are you doing to challenge yourself?
More to come…

With everything going on in this world, it can be easy to get sidetracked. Life can easily go on a tangent. However, life is only as complicated as you make it.
My weight challenge has been a hard one. Life always likes to get in the way. I have been going to the gym. I have been getting a good workout in. I haven’t been able to go more than two days a week though.
Working out/Training/Getting big takes discipline. Takes dedication. Makes you realize how real the struggle is, but how badly you want to challenge that struggle.
My next post will be my workout routine I am doing at the gym. As I progress, learn more, and challenge myself further, I’ll update the routine I am doing.
What are your biggest challenges with the gym? What stops you from going? What makes you quit going?
More on the way soon…
