Today was all about Strength Training: Pushing boundaries and challenging the body and mind to work past comfort zones.
Torch calories with this full-body HIIT This may be my hardest workout ever. It’s not easy. But if you put your mind to it, you can push through a tough workout, every single time. 20 sec rest between sets.

Social media is an excellent source of motivation, inspiration, diet tips and exercise information. I don’t know about you but I am inspired by people around me. I just love reading or listening to people’s stories about how they dealt with certain setbacks in their life or how they are overcoming a major crisis in their daily life.
If I were to sum it all up, we all can use a bit of encouragement now and then!!! Post away! You never know who's looking for a reason to believe that they can do it too!
Whatever it is, make sure it’s motivating enough to keep you working hard.
I am still working hard to maintain my weight. Since my weight loss journey began I have never stopped pushing towards my goals and staying consistent – there has not been a time that getting healthy wasn’t a priority for me. That being said, I’ve gone from someone who could barely walk up a flight of stairs without being winded, to now lifting weights, using strength-training machines, elliptical machines and I have now started lifting free weights.
My ideal gym regimen is six days of activity and one day of active rest. On those days that I can’t make it to the gym, I make sure I get my workout at home. I live in a small-space apartment and working out from home can be challenging. But in my opinion, who needs space when you have motivation to help you stay on track? Yes, it’s a chore to pull everything out, workout and put everything neatly away. But when I’m done…it’s worth the beautiful results!
