We come to the end of this very detailed fitness update! Hooray! I know I talk a lot but I had so much to share 🙂 It has been seven months of information and experiences, right? So this final video includes what I wear, the equipment I use at home and my final thoughts for motivation!
You know how the saying goes… You can’t out-exercise bad eating. Trust me, I tried… and failed. So, I finally got on the clean eating train. The bulk of the weight loss came from changing my diet drastically! It took baby steps in the process so I didn’t just jump head first into it. Now it has become a lifestyle change and I’m more accustomed to it.
It’s been 7 months since I decided to make that change… I have always been generally a thin person. I first experienced weight gain right after I graduated college. What freshman 15? I gained the senior 30! I went from walking around the beautiful LSU campus everyday to sitting at a desk all day and eating whatever was in arms reach. So I packed on the pounds hitting about 174. There is virtually no photographic evidence of this, I hid from cameras at that time or I have burned them!
Who doesn’t like leg day, right! I’m getting my weight up on the leg press, which makes me really happy to see the amount of strength I have now. It keeps getting better each time I go, and that is so motivating! The weather has gotten much nicer which means I can get a run in at the LSU Lakes. It feels great to be back to running the lakes, I spend many hours here as a student and after. Plus I had my fastest 5K to date at 37:31 and my farthest run at 3.61 miles. Woot!
