So I decided to spice up my workouts a little bit and do a new challenge for my arms!
30 days push-up challenge!! So that being said after my regular workout I do as many push ups as I can, 100 being the goal for each day. My first day was yesterday ( Before and after pics will come for this because I want to see if anything happens, myself 😀 I will post em after 30 days is up. ) Yesterday I did 10 x 5 with a 30 sec break in between each 10.
It will be an interesting challenge and hopefully my arms will get a lot stronger ^_^
I have started school again! And its so hard to do my workouts with school on the side but Im trying my best and hope you are too. I have somewhat interesting news ^_^ I am going to start vlogging! So now you can actually keep up with me and actually see me a little bit, yay!! I dont know yet when this will start but it will be soon I assure you!
I have lately had some days off so now I am on day 65, but still thats an amazing number for me, since before I couldnt even get pass a week. haha!
Other news, I think I am going to have to buy a new yogamat already, mine is breaking appart, I dont know why! Maybe because it didnt cost that much, but going to invest in a better one next time for sure!!
Ohh! and also I got a bike! like bicycle, it is my sisters old one and so cute!! But also very nice cause now I do not have to walk everywhere and I get to work my legs at the same time! I will show you a picture later of it ^_^
But for now, I Hope you all are doing well and exercising!
So, Me and my Husband took a little time to go on a small vacation recently and what can I say, it is so hard to get back into working out after a vacation. I am trying my best to get back into the rutine but it is hard. I am going to do it though cause I have seen some changes with my body and it makes me feel so good looking in the mirror! I am so excited for this autumn.
I am currently a student, studying IT and my school starts next week. It is going to be interesting to see how I can keep up with the workouts and school at the same time, but I am going to do it! And with you all, and this blog as my encouragement I know I will succeed. So that was a little update for now! ^_^
OH I completely forgot to show you all my new exercise mat! So here it is:
So Since it is still summer I have to post yet another awesome recipes video for you to enjoy! This time it is homemade sorbet/icecream Enjoy ^_^
I have reached day 44 in my fitness and I am so happy! I am still going strong and even though some days are harder than others I am not giving up! I have noticed though, this month has been a lot harder than the previous one. I don’t know why I think I had more of an urge to exercise in the beginning. I just gotta find that again and motivate myself!
I have noticed a difference though, my body has become firmer and I have over all become more stronger but, I still have a long way to go! I must say though that the trainer I follow has helped me A lot!! to stay on track. I do not think I could have done it without her!
So to encourage you who are reading this, get someone who encourages you and inspires you in what you wanna do! If you wanna exercise get a great trainer or just an awesome friend that helps you out. If you wanna play music get a song/music instructor that will motivate you! Or anything else in life. Surround yourself with positive and motivating people and you will go far in life!
Thats my motivation speech , haha, for today!

So I haven´t had the time to post anything lately, atleast it has felt that way. I wake up and just feel like time is slipping away.
Anyway I wanted to update on my progress. Tomorrow I have worked out for 14 days in a row. I think for me that´s a record! I am so happy!! These exercises I am doing are really tough but oh how I love it! It just makes you feel so great afterwards! YAY!
Anyway just to let you know, I have worked out before just never have kept up with it like now, I keep starting things and then end up leaving it in the middle. I was finally just so fed up with it all so I decided to start this blog to help me along the way! ^_^ But I have already talked about that a little so on to some new things.
Like I said tomorrow marks my 14 Days in a row workout and I am so excited about that. It is interesting to see how much stronger I have become just after 14 days of working out. I mean, I am nowhere near my goal but I feel stronger and happier!
Exercise causes the brain to release Endorphins.
“Endorphins are neurotransmitters, or brain chemicals, released into the body after exercising. They primarily combat feelings of pain and stress. They also have other positive effects, such as improving the immune system, modulating the appetite, and creating a feeling of euphoria”. (http://totalwellnessmagazine.org/body/the-science-behind-happiness-and-exercise)
So thats another reason to exercise!!
So if you´re here just reading this for the first time I encourage you to join me on this journey to a better and happier life. Try out the exercise plan I wrote about in another post and tell me how you are doing? Or any smart exercise tips!!
Lets have Fun!
