The Importance of People

Hey y’all! Welcome to today’s post. I am going to be explaining the importance of people and having supportive individuals around you. Enjoy!!

“It’s harder to run up a mountain by yourself.”

Throughout our life, we all encounter many different people. Some individuals tear us down or bring us up. It’s extremely important that you surround yourself with people who will make you feel good and are positive.

Some of us have the mentality of “we can do anything and everything by ourself.” It is good to be independent, but it’s perfectly okay to ask for help and receive help. Sometimes, it can make the experience easier and more enjoyable.

Friends and family are important!! ❤

However, you shouldn’t just let anyone be significant in your life. You have to ask yourself if they are slowing you down or helping you run up your mountain. Why would you have friends that are toxic and don’t want the best for you? Sometimes you have to do what is best for yourself and not others.

Your journey to reach the top of your mountain and meet your goals doesn’t have to be a lonely one. Have friends and family that will encourage, support, and celebrate you when you achieve your goals.

My First Week of Summer Journal

Hey y’all! Welcome to Friday’s post. Today, I am going to be sharing my first week of summer with y’all! I hope you enjoy.

SUNDAY-

Today was pretty uneventful. I went to church, cleaned my room, and watched basketball. Best part of the day was knowing I was on SUMMER VACAY!!

MONDAY-

Today was super fun! It was Memorial Day so we went to my Mimi’s house for lunch. We had sub sandwiches and homeaid ice cream. In the evening, my dad, brother, and I went to the movies and watched Godzilla vs. Kong. 10/10 recommend watching.

TUESDAY-

I started my day with an INTENSE full body workout. I ended very sweaty but I loved it. In the afternoon, I had cheer and it was sooooo tiring!!! We had to practice outside because the gyms were taken and it was super hot and humid. It was a great practice though. After, I went to my friend’s house and then got picked up by my mom. For dinner, my mom made pulled pork and I was SO happy because she never makes that :). Thanks mom hahaha

WEDNESDAY-

In the morning, I went to my Mimi’s house. I had cheer again where we practiced our stunts/pyramid because we leave to camp in 12 days! I am SOOOO excited for our cheer camp!! When I got home, the sunset was so vivid and shades of red and pink filled the sky. It was a perfect sight. At night, my friend and I went to church. We did a devotional, played volleyball, and hung out.

THURSDAY-

I started the day with a 20 minute bike ride. I do 40 seconds on 20 seconds off and it really gets my heart rate up!! I had cheer today and it was SO TIRING!! We did our routine so many times but it was great because now it looks superrrrrr good. After cheer, I stayed at the gym for tumbling practice. I am currently working on my back tuck which is a back flip with no hands. I was exhausted by the end of the day so I just relaxed in the evening.

Myth Busters-Fitness Edition

Hey y’all! Welcome to this week’s post. Today, I am going to be busting false fitness myths!

Hi!! How are y’all doing? Yesterday I got my first dose for the COVID vaccine! If you haven’t already, I encourage you to get it as well! It’s important to protect yourself AND others 🙂

LET’S GET STARTED!

Myth #1

  • Lifting weights will make you bulky
    • This is not true AT ALL. Some people are afraid to lift weights because they think they’ll end up superrr muscular and big. Weight training alone makes you strong, but not bulky. However, being bulky isn’t a bad thing and neither is having muscle. Lift your weights!!

Myth #2

  • Spot reduction works
    • This myth might disappoint some of y’all but doing 10 minute ab exercises won’t give you solid abs. Everyone has abs but they are just covered by fat. So, if you want more visible abs you have to reduce your body fat everywhere, not just your stomach. Therefore, core exercises alone won’t reduce stomach fat; but cardio and weightlifting along with some ab exercises will.

Myth #3

  • Static stretch before a workout
    • False! In order to prevent injuries, dynamic stretching is way more effective than static. Some dynamic stretches are knee hugs, arm circles, inchworms, etc. Static stretching is better for after a workout to help with flexibility and prevent soreness.

Comment if you would want a part 2!
