Back on the Bandwagon

Hello, all my readers!

I’m posting on a schedule today. What this? Two posts on time so far? I’m on a roll! Now, to the real topic. Recently, I fell off the bandwagon, from last week of summer semester to the first week of school. The first reason was that I had to defrost my fridge before I left school and I was left to be seduced by fast food. Then, in the first week of school, I had no money to buy real food. But, I got my financial aid and I’m back on track. Surprisingly enough, It’s only been about 2 weeks since I’ve bought groceries and I already see results. This morning, I saw some obliques coming out. It was probably because I’ve been getting enough sleep lately, and working out too. Unfortunately, I’m not working as much but, that problem will be solved soon, somehow or another. Where there is a will, there is a way.

I have added more cardio to my workouts. I am not really a cardio person but, it helps when trying to burn fat. I usually just do body-weight exercises and/ or vinyasa yoga. I guess adding cardio to my normal workout was a great choice because I feel and look great. I’m not even counting calories. I know how much I eat in general through some estimations but, there is no hard calculating going on, and no apps either. I spread my protein intake throughout my meals too because that helps. As long as I know I am getting about 17g per meal, I’m great.

Side note: Apparently, we do not need that much protein to live or build muscle. The minimum is 10% of your diet or if you want to be more accurate. It is eighty-five percent of your weight in pounds divided by 2.2. That is actually not a hard amount of protein to consume and for bodybuilding, you might need to add a little more but, most of all your intake should just be spread out more evenly with your meals. I learned that from my human nutrition class.

Anyways, I just wanted to tell y’all about my health and fitness progress. I’m off to study for my exams.

Thanks for listening to my rant,
