As a lot of you know, I have been embarking on this gym journey as I would like to call it and I have been getting a lot of questions and advice.
First, I literally know nothing about working out and what not but certain things seem to be working for me and I hope that they can work for you.
First things first, when I go to the gym I always wear my sweat belt. What is a sweat belt? It is a “belt” that I wrap around my stomach which makes my midsection sweat like crazy. At the end of my workouts, I unwrap myself and sweat is dripping. My midsection has always been a struggle of mine so to have something that attacks my midsection to help tone it is amazing.
Also, second please ladies, do more then cardio! Lift, do something else. Cardio is good but it can get boring super fast, lift some weights, use some of the other machines. When I go to the gym I lift, I do leg workouts, booty workouts and cardio. When I do my cardio I do fasted cardio which means first thing in the morning after I wake up I go to the gym on an empty stomach and do my cardio, by doing fasted cardio this helps fat burning as there is no food to try and burn though. I don’t know if I explained that properly but as I said, no genius here.
Next, the hard part which is healthy eating. As much as a lot of us would love to think, working out does not mean that you can eat whatever you want. It means that you should only put healthy things into your body. I hate healthy eating, I don’t eat my vegetables, I am probably the pickiest eater on the planet. Right now I am just trying to slowly cut back on foods that I know are bad for me in hopes that I can change my ways soon enough. I really want to try going vegan for a week to test myself and to try new things but I’ll have to see about that one?
Do you go to the gym? I’d love to know in the comments!
