Hello Guam!

Hi Aspirers! I’m currently in Guam and the plan is for me to stay here for a month. My sister offered to bring me out this way and I couldn’t say no. Who would say no to PARADISE! If you follow me on Instagram which you should be already (Instragram: _cocorenee) you would of seen pictures I’ve added to my story. Do you know what’s crazy is upon my arrive a storm was heading towards Guam. In my head I didn’t think it would be a big deal until I arrived and that storm was actually a FREAKING TYPHOON. What a great vacation so far….

Anyway I wanted to vlog my entire trip for you all. Check out my first vlog while I’m here in Guam. There are much more to come! Enjoy!

2018 New Year, New Body

Hi Aspirers there is one thing I’m tired of and that is my weight. Guess what it’s time for a change! Yup I said it a change! When I was in college I lost about 40lbs but over time I’ve gain half of the weight back and I’m not loving it. I still fit in the same size because my weight gain was evently spread out. You know what it’s hard to lose it again. I would exercise and then stop for awhile, then start again and stop for awhile. It felt like a never ending cycle. Recently I figured out why, I was bored. I get bored so easily doing the same workouts. So I decided to create a random workout plan and hopefully it’ll challenge me to continue working out. I chose this workout method for it to be fun and random everyday that I worked out so I won’t get bored. Each time I pick a popsicle stick I won’t know the difficulty level until it’s picked. I’ll be pushing myself daily.

I’m sharing this with you all because I want you to hold me accountable and I would love for you to join in as well. Continue reading and find out my plan for a new body!!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Instructions:

1. Label all your ziplock bags. Label one bag REP or SETS, second bag EXERCISE, and the third bag TIME FRAME (how many seconds, minutes, or times). The markers I bought to write in the bag wasn’t working on the bags so I used paper and taped the labels on like so.

2. After you label your bags it’s time to label your popsicle sticks. For the REP or SETS popsicles I put 2, 3, 4, and 5 reps. You’ll know how many times you’ll have to repeat that one exercise.

3. For the EXERCISE sticks I put random exercises and something fun I decided to add (can you spot it lol). I’m planning on adding more don’t worry. Some of the other exercises that aren’t shown: knee crunches, planks, arm circles, flutter kicks, etc.

5. For the last bag TIME FRAME I wrote multiples of 5s and I wrote up to 50. The reason why I was specific on the time length because it’s based on how long you were planning to workout. Say if you chose to workout for an hour and you randomly selected sit-ups and 50. You then can decide if you want to do sit-ups for 50 seconds, 50 times, or 50 minutes of sit-ups. If you want a good variety of your workout doing the same thing might not be the best thing.

After you labeled your bags and your popsicle sticks it’s time to workout!

My plan is to workout 2-3 days a week for an hour. Once my strength builds up I want to add more difficult exercises so I can continue to progress. If you are trying this method you could create ziplock bags with warm up and cool down options. Make this method your own. I don’t have a personal trainer so I have to do something that’ll work.

Stay tune for updates on my progress and I’m planning on showing you a snippet of my workout. If you decide to do this method or something similar comment down below.

#wwydwednesday: Favorite Quotes from Mindshift

If you haven’t watched Mindshift from my last #wwydwednesday go watch it before reading this. Click here

There’s greatness in you and you have to learn how to tune out the critics outside and the critic inside. -Mindshift

We can become our worst critics. We tell ourselves we can’t do it or stop because we failed once or maybe a few times. Everyone failed at something at some point in time. Before we can achieve greatness we must see failure. 

People are rewarded in public for what they practiced for years in private. -Mindshift 

People on the outside only see what is happening now. They weren’t there when you gave up 50 times, told yourself it can’t be done, and fell down to only crawl to the next step. It takes time. With time success will happen but only when you’re pushing yourself. 

Most of us go through life with our brakes on, holding back. Decide to push yourself forward. You got to focus on you. -Mindshift

When you focus on yourself and what needs to be done, it will be done. 

You got to learn how to be resourceful, you got to learn how to be creative. -Mindshift

You have to rely on yourself sometimes. Stop waiting for a hand to lead you. You have to lead yourself. Once you do that, you’ll be AMAZING! 

I hope you enjoyed reading my favorite quotes from the video and my thoughts about it. I have to constantly stop criticizing myself when I’m struggling with something. When it’s the right time and I’m ready, I mean really ready; it will happen.

#wwydWednesday: Bloom where you are planted.

    

In other words take full advantage of the opportunities that come your way. Good things doesn’t reveal themselves right away. Turn the difficult situations into endless opportunities. Take the time to “smell the roses”. Take the time to enjoy life. Take the time to be with your family. Also take the time to grow. Sometimes we grow from being in bad situations. It’s not always greener on the other side useless you do something about it. 

Hope you enjoyed this week’s #wwydWednesday. Like this post if you want to take advantage of the endless possibilities coming your way! 

Sincerely, Courtney Renee

P.S. wwyd stands for What Would You Do. Just in case you missed the post about it.
