Confession time: Ever since my half marathon, I’d been feeling pretty unmotivated.
I tried quotes, distracting myself with the Kardashians on the elliptical, and busting my butt at Soul Cycle with friends. Although I completed the workout, sweating up a storm, I just didn’t get that accomplished feeling when I was done.
Basically what I’m saying is… I’m was just plain bored.
So I did what every 20-something year old does to get motivation. I turned to the internet, specifically Instagram. I tracked down the top trending, motivational fitness gramers from around the world and followed them all (literally all of them)! I figured seeing fit girls in my feed saying encouraging words and showing me new moves to try out could get me out of the fitness funk I was in.
That’s where things finally clicked. Enter Amanda Bisk! She is basically Superwoman (with blond hair and a great tan).
One day after having yet another uninspiring run in the gym, I sat on the floor stretching and scrolling Instagram (I know… such a #Millennial move). There she was again in my feed. This time doing a very impressive leg lift.
I somehow got lost digging deep into her impressive Insta archives and after seeing her mention her free one-week training course, I said to myself “What the heck! Why not? Let’s do it!”
That was exactly one week ago today, and I can honestly tell you I’m hooked after the pre-training course! So hooked that even after the government decided to take way more money from me that I would have liked (stupid taxes), I still invested $59.95 into her 12-week training course.
Idk what it is about her routine… but it just works for me! Like I can seriously tell a different in my abs already. And if I cut down on all the donuts, then maybe others will begin to notice as well :) Not to mention… it’s bikini season soon! (Yet it snowed in DC on Saturday for a few minutes, so clearly the weather is a bit confused.)
This post is in no way sponsored by Amanda Bisk (sadly) but I had to share with you that I finally got my workout mojo back and I’m pumped!
No weights, no gym. Blasting my favorite jams (currently obsessed with this song) watching the 20-minute circuits fly by :)
I guess I’m invested now (literally), so let’s see how these next 12 weeks go! I figured since I’m blogging about it I have to stick to it now :) Today is day one!
If any of you kind souls out there want to do it with me, I can always use a virtual training partner!
