It’s June.

And I quit my waitressing job. The perfect time to start a new workout routine. Hopefully I’ll get the 9-5 job I’m going for.

Starting tomorrow I’m going to incorporate supersets into my workouts and begin training for a few races in fall. One containing six obstacle courses in the mud. 

After seeing a few recent full body pictures of myself I am not happy with the lack of progress I’ve made the past couple months. My biggest insecurity are my arms and I feel like they’ve gotten bigger. It’s time to really clean up my diet and really limit my alcohol intake all together. It’s not worth it.

So with all the cardio I’m about to embark on, the change up on strength training and my new purchase of a weighted jump rope I should / hope to see improvements in six weeks or so. Before picture coming soon..
