building the best version of me
a few weeks ago @jera.bean made a point that stuck with me about my personal transformation through health and wellness. i used to post images of before and after to show how far i’ve come and who i was then and who i am now. although it is great to see the aesthetic changes we’ve made, it’s also important to remember this journey doesn’t have a start and end. health and wellness is about a lifestyle change, a journey that has high’s and lows. it’s not just about having a perfect week or a perfect month, it’s about finding balance and living life with a new found passion for health and fitness.
for me it’s not only be physical changes but also mental and emotional. i’ve mentally grown more than i have since i started dedicating time to focus on my health and wellness. my passion for living a healthy lifestyle has become something i don’t give a second thought on. it’s something that i’ve integrated into my daily living while on a journey to become the best version of me. i’ve gained confidence, gratitude, knowledge, and achieved goals. there have been very high high’s and low low’s, have i felt 100% all the time, heck no! but it doesn’t stop me from trying my best and keep working hard on building the best version of me every single day.
15 MINUTE MOVEMENT CIRCUIT
Go light weight on weighted exercises. This is all about blood flow & getting a nice light sweat in!
Start with 8 reps of each exercise & add 2 reps each set! For the mountain climbers you can double the reps! Try to get as high as possible on the ladder! This is perfect for those sore days! There are times to train hard & there are times to just move! This is very important when going into a fitness program guys! If you want it to be a lifestyle & more about longevity balance is a must!
