Saturday’s are the best days.  After a long week I took today off from the gym.  Friday I also took the day off because I barley slept on Thursday night and I decided when I woke up at 6:30am on Friday morning that I was going to sleep in and get some rest.  As much as I wanted to go to the gym it is important for me to get sleep because no one, I mean no one wants to see a sleep deprived Brody.  They may not like her afterwards.  Friday was a very productive day.  Friday I went to a local nutrition shop near school and got some super yummy protein bars that are healthy and made with real ingredients.  After returning from the store I got ready for my first ever Rugby practice.  Late Thursday night I was talking with some friends and I had decided that I wanted to join the Club Rugby team at school.  So Friday from 4-6pm I had practice.  This brought back so many fun memories from high school of lacrosse practice with some of my best friends.  I had so much fun at practice, all of the girls were so nice and welcoming and were so helpful because I had no idea what I was doing.  I can’t wait to learn more and for games!! I’ll still be going to the gym because it’s my ultimate stress reliever and as we know college can be very stressful.  On Thursday I had an awesome workout, I try to work different muscles each day so Im getting a full body workout.

This weekend was a lot of fun, I hung out with friends AND saw my parents and my dog on Saturday which just made the whole weekend so much better!! The rest of my Saturday consisted of some reading, seeing more friends and going to the volleyball game, that we won!!! Saturday night a lot of my friends went out but I stayed in and had my own dance party with a few of my friends who also stayed in, and I danced so much and so hard that it was basically a workout in itself. Also I finally got my headstand down, now I just need to work on being able to do it without the wall for support!!

Day 1 : Today I started of my day by sleeping in until 8am, and then had some Honey Nut Cheerios and an apple for breakfast.  Went to class and then lunch with some good friends of mine where I had an awesome salad!! After my second class I went to the gym and had a killer workout which I posted below!  Made my walk back to my dorm and got ready to go to dinner with some friends of mine.  I find it very tempting to get something easy like chicken tenders or a quesadilla for dinner but I made sure I got food that will fill me up and fuel me properly.  I had some rice, a potato that I mistakenly thought was a sweet potato but it wasn’t and then I had a piece of chicken with a side of chocolate milk.  I enjoyed the laughter and stories of my friends while we ate.

After dinner four of my friends and I went to the pet store to get some fish and on our way back we stopped at Daddy’s Dairy for some delicious ice cream.. I got some Peanut Butter Cup and, my favorite, Black Raspberry Chip Frozen Yogurt.  It was so delicious and a great way to end my night with friends.  Many people when talking about being fit or trying to stay fit say they have cheat days, I do not believe in cheat days, cheat meals, or cheat anything for that matter.  As long as you eat foods that may not be as good for you in moderation you’re golden!! I try not to eat dessert every night because that is just extra empty calories and a sugar high I know I will regret. Some nights I like to treat myself!

I hope you all like this blog and continue to follow it as I get more into this and can share more with all of you!! Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive and positive about this whole experience!!!

Hey everyone! So last night I was hanging out with some friends of mine and we were talking about their blogs and I thought it was such a good idea to start one,so I did! People always ask me what I do for workouts and to teach them how I do it so I guess this blog will kind of serve as that purpose, it might be successful, it might not be but here’s to trying new things!!

I hope you all enjoy it and maybe begin to love fitness as much as I do!
