The plank challenge has begun, and I hope you started as well! I don’t like excuses, so be prepared for my wrath if I hear an “I can’t do it,” or “I started but then it got too difficult.” This isn’t meant to be easy. That’s why it’s a challenge. You have to push yourself to attain the tone and muscle definition you so desperately want. You can’t expect it to happen if you don’t challenge yourself and push yourself to your absolute limit.
When I first started training with Joscelynn, there were some people who gave me looks of disbelief and asked why I even had a trainer since I was already skinny. In turn, I gave them a look and stated that while I didn’t need to lose any weight, in fact I needed to gain it, I wanted to get toned and have some definition. I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone why I had a trainer. It’s not about being thin. I wanted to be healthy. Plain and simple. My first year of college I lost a lot of weight that I couldn’t afford to lose. I had trouble gaining it back, and part of it was probably because I loved being so skinny. I was not healthy at all and everyone could see it. It took me about three years to gain back what I lost, and then a few more years to gain some more. I am finally in a healthy place and I am so happy with my body. Being able to see the tone and definition I’ve built gives me this feeling of satisfaction. That anything is possible. Sure, there are days I don’t like my body, but I have to remind myself that each person is different. We can’t all have the same body type, and that is okay. Slow progress is still progress. Don’t ever give up and don’t you dare compare your body to anyone else’s. Take the time to properly train and you will eventually see the results you want.
My body wouldn’t be where it is now without the help of Joscelynn. It’s easier to stick to it when you have someone who motivates you. I encourage each and every one of you to join an exercise group, whether it be a swim class, yoga, zumba, spinning, etc. If you live in the Amherst/Tonawanda/Kenmore area, go to one of Joscelynn’s crazy zumba classes. I promise you will love it and her!
No more excuses! Get off your butt and go exercise!
