In times where we feel defeated, we must remember that there is always light during times of darkness. Here are a list of things I do to stay uplifted:
1. Tell yourself every morning that you are fabulous.
2. When large task seem impossible, break them down and write down small task to achieve the large task ahead.
3. Learn from your failures and realize that experiencing failure will only make you stronger.
4. Never let anyone dictate who you are.
Happy Monday to you all! With a fresh week on our hands, it is time to get out and do some big things and accomplish goals. For this week's Purple Monday, I wanted to announce that I am in the midst of developing a fitness section for JasMoseley. There were quite a few inquiries about my work out routine and how to look and feel fabulous.
I will be honest with you all, my whole life I have been very slender. When I started college in 2007 I was a whopping 79 pounds (before you speculate any eating disorders, I am 4'11 and ate regularly. I have a very high metabolism). I barely worked out and felt I looked like a stick figure. I always wanted a "body", you know...a big butt, hips and thighs, but I was and always have been super petite. I was also VERY out of shape- skinny does not mean "In Shape". It took me forever to run a mile and I barely had muscle definition, especially in my arms and legs.
In the past 2 years I have become super inspired by a few Youtubers and friends to get fit and be in the best shape possible, so I got my butt in the gym and pushed myself to the max. As I got myself in a routine, I started seeing definition in my arms, quads, abs and even my calves... not to mention my booty! Also, I started gaining muscle and body weight, which was a major goal of mine in the past.
Currently I am up to 88.6 pounds due to building muscle weight and I am still pushing to gain more. Here is a taste of my workout days. I have a long week and short week of work outs- I will get more in detail when the fitness section goes up:
Monday- Total Body Workout
Tuesday- Legs and Gluts
Thursday-Arms and Abs
Saturday- Total Body Workout
Tuesday-Legs and Gluts
Thursday- Arms and Abs
