To train or not to train

So as part of kicking my butt back into shape I decided to get a trainer. I was lucky enough to find an affordable one that a friend of mine had been working with and gotten great results. Since it will be the first time in about a year of doing any physical activity I wanted to start off with 2 sessions a week to avoid injury.

I had to have someone start me off with scratch, even before I started my weightlifting journey I had some strength/endurance so when experimenting with routines I was able to do it solo. But with these injuries I want to make sure I have someone watching my form and avoiding exercises that will aggravate it. Don’t want to be injured further.

So far its been great! I am definitely out of shape lol and I hive up every time I work out. But I’ve noticed my energy levels rising. Also I’m sticking to it since another person’s schedule is involved and of course my money.

Meal Prepping has been my new best friend. found a local company that makes delicious organic and according to my macros meal that keep me in check. I haven’t lost much weight but I feel a few inches off and its only been 2 weeks! I know I have a lot of muscle swelling and tears since I am super sore every time. the Foam roller has me loving/hating stretching.

Excited to see what next two weeks bring.

A lemon a day keeps all these away…

In the past few years I have always tried to drink a cup of lemon water in the morning. I find that it refreshed me for a long day ahead. All the added benefits were awesome too!

According to an article from a few years back from Huffington Post, lemon water gives you so much healthy benefits. Some of which I already knew like:

  • Helps with Constipation
  • Hydration (adding some flavor to otherwise tasteless water)
  • Weight Loss

But there are more perks!

  • Strengthens the Brain
  • Cleanses your liver
  • Stop UTIs

If your like me, I am always running late in the morning….so not a morning person. So there are times where I just can’t cut,squeeze, and drain the lemon water. So I found essential lemon oil that packs the punch of so many squeeze lemons in a few drops. I usually carry the tiny bottle with me and add two drops to my juice and its as if I squeezed a big lemon in there.

What I love about the Bare Oils is that its as ‘clean’ as it can come. I’m very weary with oils….they can’t be pressed too many times, and must be able to be used both orally and topically. Multi-uses for one bottle in my head means I purchase less things to tackle a multitude of issues.

I’m so happy I found this! I’m a big supporter of convenience and this just saves me plenty of time, lemons, and space in my fridge!
