This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
My tummy is so sore from the work I did at the gym 2 days ago….but I love that feeling. Is that weird? It’s like I can feel those muscles getting tighter.
So I couldn’t run today because my knee started hurting like a bitch…but I forced myself to go to the gym for some ab work at like 11 pm.
Then I began noticing my calve muscles and felt pretty decent about them. I think I’m really starting to appreciate my legs more.
Although, I must know…Inner thighs, why are you so damn stubborn?
I have always done cardio first, then weights…just now realizing that this is not the best way to go.
