Ok kids, this is it.
I’m bringing back my gym game.
Over the last 6 months I’ve kind of slowly stopped hanging out at the gym. Although it hasn’t stopped me from being obsessed with everything fitness related during that time.
It took me a while to realize why I let the gym slip, but I recently figured out that when my routine changes, I feel lost and I almost feel like I forget how to do everything. When my gym buddies (aka my sisters) moved away, I felt lost and I struggled to go to the gym without them.
Strange, I know.
So, to get back on track, I’m going to put my fitness goals for 2018 out there for all to see. Then, I will do it. Period. The end. No excuses, just dedication.
All. By. Myself. <insert sappy song here>
Tone & Sculpt Abs & Glutes
This will be fun for 2 reasons…
#1 – I have no feeling in my abdominal region.
#2 – My glutes act like they don’t have a leg to stand on.
Having no feeling in my abs causes any core workout difficult to execute, but it also makes it easy to sculpt them (since I can’t feel the pain). Leave me a comment below if you want me to write a post on why I can’t feel my abs.
Nonetheless, difficult or not, these are my top target areas I want to focus on in 2018.
Strengthen my upper body
My favourite workouts are triceps, shoulders & biceps – exactly in that order. There’s just something about beautifully sculpted arms that are capped with a strong shoulder that make it all worth it.
Ugh. Yep, that’s pretty much all I have to say about that. All of my life I have used food as a way to stay alive – which is good, if you know a thing or two about nutrition. I don’t. I am clueless when it comes to food. Also, another problem I have is that many times, I forget to eat.
Now I’m determined to learn how to eat well.
Do it alone
Ok, this may not be an actual fitness goal, but my thought is that if I learn to workout alone, I won’t struggle when there’s a change-up with my gym partner. Working out with friends is always a bonus, but I think I need to be comfortable with being alone at the gym.
Train for a competition
I wasn’t going to include this in my post, but I decided to anyway. I am not actually interested in competing – there’s so many reasons why – but I am interested in focusing on bringing my body to a place that I desire it to be. When I started working out back in 2016, I adopted this plan as my routine – 2 hours, 6 days a week. I loved it.
Those are the goals I’m starting with. I will try to keep you posted on my progress.
As a bonus, I’m throwing in my YouTube video about what I’ll be toting with me in my gym bag.
