New Workout, New Happiness, New Me

The last time I posted I mentioned how I was unhappy and how I needed to find happiness. Well ladies and gents, I believe I'm beginning to find it. I've decided to switch my workout plan, my eating habits - actually most of my habits switching out for new and better ones, and the way I present myself.


I mentioned in this post that I previously did MuffinTop-Less.com's Fit Body Guide and I loved every single workout and despite my slow progress on the outside I was much happier with myself overall. I took that knowledge into considering while choosing how to find my happiness and I went to BodyBuilding.com and I looked up plans that would work best for me. The James Grange Rewired 9-Week plan is what I finally decided on. I'm two days into the plan and I'm sore and I've already fallen back in love with the gym and lifting just like I did while doing MuffinTop-Less's plan.

 My boyfriend has also decided to take his health more seriously and get back into shape so now he is accompanying me to the gym. We don't work out together while we're there but the fact that I have someone asking me to go to the gym and reminding me that I have a workout to do is a great motivation. We usually warm up by playing basketball, usually playing a game to 21, but today we both attempted squash. The keyword there was attempted. I had a breakdown because the competitor in my couldn't figure out how to hit a ball with a racket but he calmed me down and taught me. After getting the hang out swinging we both sort of got the hang of it. We didn't play with any rules; we have a lot more progress to go before we're capable of doing that. 

My other goals are to kick some really bad habits. I have a temper. I have a tendency to be a bit of a hypocrite. I bully myself. I can be a bit of a witch with a 'b' to others. I don't dress myself happy. I've become a firm believer in "look as good as you feel, and if you don't feel well, look better". My goal is to update monthly on how I look, feel, treat others and how calm I tend to stay and to be honest about it all. I know I'm not perfect and I know I won't become perfect but that doesn't mean I can't try. 

Wish me luck. I'm going to need all that I can get.
