It took me a 6 years of absence of training in a gym,and I’ve missed it.
I never really didn’t exercise,but there’s something about going in a gym.Even that I don’t go there to socialize,I even recognize some friendly faces, i see every time i go,around the same hours,same days.
The reason I went back to a gym,is always my top priority,improving health,keeping a normal weight,but this time I planed even to tone up my body,more than ever.
First day when I signed up,I sat down with a gym associate,who assessed my body situation,which didn’t alarmed me,because I’m in a normal range weight.
What interested me most, was my body fat,and that was 24%.From there,I created a personal goal to lower it to 20%,which is still in normal range,and to be realistic,easy to maintain.I’m 5’6 (168cm)tall and weight 138pounds(63kg)
6 months have past,and I was hitting the gym constantly 5 days a week.I have a purpose.Grow up my muscle mass,lower my body fat and have ripped abs by the summer.I went to do a body fat check,and surprisingly my body fat didn’t lower.
I didn’t get bothered by that,since I see an increase in muscle mass that it show.
Now,I plan to still lower that body fat,but not so fast,I don’t want my body to crash.I do watch what I eat,a lot.try to eat organic food,clean,cook as much as possible.I try to avoid precooked,cans or plastic wrapped foods.I eat a lot of proteins,fruits,vegetables,complex carbs and eat about 5-7 times/day.
When I started in the wintertime,I did about 3 days a week weights,2 days a week a class,as Bootcamp or Body Works.Both classes are really challenging and change constantly.Now I do change that plan every 4-6 weeks,so my body doesn’t get used to the exercises,and get lazy! If you want your body to change,you need to challenge it as much as possible.Comfort is not an option!

I already feel stronger and I feel my body getting in a better shape.
I am determined.I am happy.
