Long time, no post! I haven’t had a load of time for my hobby projects, so I’ve been slacking on the ‘Tube, and here. A bit better about getting back on track on YT, because that has a lot more eyeballs on it. Just sayin’.
But, today marks the close of week 1 of my latest health and fitness challenge, the #SeptemberSHRED. Here are the details on that, by the way:
You guys! It’s time for another challenge! I hinted that I had something cool in the works, in my last post
, and here it is. This is my first ever Mind, Body & Soul Challenge, and the best thing about it is that it’s in collaboration with Ghana Goddess, a.k.a. Michelle LeBelle!
This year’s #UpYourGame Challenge was quite the roller coaster, but I do feel that I came out of it better than I went into it. I remain a work in progress (FUCKING PERPETUALLY), and indeed, when it comes to challenges, I am on to the next one almost immediately. I want to keep the ball rolling, now that I’m in the right place mentally with my workouts and eating, so that’s just what I’m going to do.
Okay! It may have taken me almost the entire length of this challenge to actually get into the groove of things, but things have been great the past two weeks, or so. I’ve been working out with kettlebells, using that Lauren Brooks program I told y’all ‘bout, and I’ve been going to spin classes about twice a week.
I’ve also been eating pretty well!
Though things took a while to right themselves after my last post, I am finally back on track! For real, this time! I told y’all about the whole mole situation, and not being able to work out because of sweat, and all. Well, I went for my follow up appointment the following weekend, and had to get more moles zapped, which meant another week of having to let the scabs heal, and having to avoid sweating.
Once that was over, I decided to revisit Lauren Brooks’ program in her book, Kettlebells for Women. I did this entire 3 month program about two years ago. This time around, I’m only using the first month (or a portion of it), to help me ease back into exercise, since I’m essentially at square one again.
I’m beginning to suspect the universe is low-key conspiring against me. Except, really, I am the one to blame!
Last weekend was supposed to be my quick reset button/juice detox situation. Then, I realized that I have a cocktail show hosting gig this week, which obviously means drinking alcohol. Which obviously means I’d be retoxing within a day or two of detoxing.
