#GarageFit

What is #garagefit?

 

Well a trainer I met last month that participated in Critical Mass has a gym in his garage simple. You go, you run you lift you do rope thrusts, squats, all in the garage and heat. Sounds effective. Well it is, I will be going back. I did not take into account that I was out of shape sort of being that I did not  workout for the past two weeks because of studying. I also did not take into account that the heat and the intensity of my workout almost made me loose the tamales I hurriedly scarfed down earlier that day. I did not eat properly, so I started to feel queasy and dizzy. So I could not go as hard as I wanted to but it was amazing!  I had fun and I will take pictures next time. Here is me after the workout and some sugar cookies to make me feel better. All in all I burned 546 calories in 46 minutes!

I had to workout in this gear and to me this is a tad bit sexay! I like it 🙂 My workout clothes never look sexy, ever. So this even surprised me that I was wearing, dare I say it?! BOOTY SHORTS. (these are totally appropriate, but I like to think that these are booty shorts). When I showed up to #garagefit there were a few guys there and they all stopped talking. I guess I should take that as they thought I looked awesome. Being super self conscious, that was a bit uncomfortable. But, I have to build confidence somewhere! I had to put it in perspective. I am down 12lbs, and 10lbs away from my goal weight. So I better WERK those booty shorts! *dances and emphasizes!* 🙂

Bicycle Chick

I’m a lady and a cyclist!

I rode around my neighborhood and it was a good one. My knees and lower quads got a good little workout thanks to my improperly inflated tires. I will get the hang of this biking stuff one day. I must say riding as the sun set is a beautiful scene . next time I will take a picture. I burned a good 311 calories despite what the app said I did. My Polar FT4 never fails me! So after my sweaty bike ride, I played fetch with man’s best friend Gizmo, packed my bags for an upcoming trip and spruced up my place.  I am visiting family in Atlanta this weekend and my mother, and little sister will be accompanying me. My sister is all about Yoga and I will ask her to show me some moves for sure. Tonight, I will be watching the game and drinking water. I would prefer to ride my bike around my neighborhood quickly, but that will not work. On Instagram I follow a lady named @FollowtheLita and she is truly inspirational when it comes to fitness. She posted, yesterday, a at work workout regimen I think I will try when everyone leaves since I work a later shift this month.

See? She is an inspiration to all. She also shows that you will not look like a man if you work out intensely. She is the epitome of dope when it comes to fitness. I will be participating in something really cool at the end of this month and it involves food! I will be excited to reveal to you that I participated in something unique fun and encourages my creativity! Speaking of food, I also tried the Chobani key Lime flip cup.

SOOOOO Yummy I encourage everyone to try one. I think it is an awesome alternative even if it is 170 calorie snack.  I know I am all over the place in today’s post and thank you for baring with me. My caffeine intake from my coffee has not leveled off. Everyone have a great day!
