While I recover mentally from the thought of my weak willpower to keep my vegetarian lifestyle going, I had to figure out a way to not only keep my posts relevant but also entertaining. What would be the best way to fuel my attention-cravings and my desire to get back into shape? I’m going to have to post South East Asian-Inspired Vegan recipes, post my weight lifting plans, and of course record my progress back to being fit. Who knows, it may stray from those goals but as long as you’re entertained that’s really all that matters.
Fit has a different connotation in everybody’s eyes. To me it’s all about confidence and self-acceptance. To help me get back to where I was when I was a full-time personal trainer I’ll be employing the same plan from my #bacon2broccoli posts and continuing on that physical fitness journey.
Here was my workout from last night:
Lower body with emphasis on Squats:
