I have months of training in a gym near my house, just two blocks away. I don't have to leave the neighborhood or take any transportation. The monthly payment for going from Monday to Friday is very economical, you can pay without generating alterations in the household budget, also attending the gym is something important to me, since I do not consider it an expense but an investment I make for my physical and emotional health.
The idea of being a woman with a slender body, with perfect measurements, has never crossed my mind, I only intend to activate my body, which in recent times was tending to flaccidity and sluggishness. So I decided to take action on the matter, I activated myself, before everything "rust" ... hahaha.
The day before yesterday I did a leg routine, which is the Monday and Thursday routine. I lifted a lot more weight on the press compared to previous days and also increased the reps. I am using more weight on the barbell squats. So, I did deadlifts with series 4-15. Before that weight and routine I didn't do it, that is to say, it is noticeable that I am advancing in performance and physical resistance. I did other routines but all leg routines, after an hour and a few more minutes, I left the gym with my legs trembling when I walked. They looked like jelly, but that feeling is temporary because in a few minutes you are walking well, without any discomfort.
Yesterday's routine was glutes, which are on Tuesdays and Fridays, but I didn't go to the gym, I stayed at home to rest my body. I take advantage of the time to do home activities, time to write and publish in read.cash the pending article for today. Yesterday's routine is repeated on Fridays, so next Friday I dedicate it to that important part of the body, although all parts of the body are important I give more preference to the leg and arm routine days. Today Wednesday will be the arm routine, and I like that one a lot, I try not to miss going to the gym on Wednesdays because the arm routine is only once a week.
Today I wanted to rest, last Monday, I gave hard to the legs and I know from experience that if today I do glute routine I'm straining my body and it will be difficult to do today's routine, I know my own resistance and it is not a matter of entering into challenges with my own body, I will not enter into any competition of physical resistance. So I take it easy, if I overexert myself I decrease my performance in the gym and even at home, because I come back destroyed, I don't perform in the rest of the afternoon/evening...hahaha.
For me, the rest days from the gym are necessary, when I'm very exhausted I stop going one day and so I try to increase energy and decrease fatigue for the following days. Yesterday, at home I did a half-hour routine for the waist because that is the only routine that can be repeated every day, it also helps me to stay active without overloading my body.
The next day, here again.
So, I started this article yesterday and finished it early today. It is not that the article is very long, but yesterday I was writing very calmly, almost finished, when suddenly the power went out, something that happens here in my area every day, the power goes out for more than four hours, several times a day. When the power came back on it was very late at night, almost at dawn, so I had to finish writing this article for publication very early in the morning. I was able to get some rest but with heat because without energy, there is no Internet and no fan. These are the situations that I always say that one can not control, just have a lot of patience to take the situation without stress. Many times in the gym it has not been possible to perform the warm-up routine with dance therapy due to lack of electricity and without music, the routines are not so pleasant. But under all the changes the best attitude is to take things with optimism and enthusiasm because life in spite of everything (even without electricity) is beautiful...
Happy and blessed day to all my followers and sponsors. You are the best.

Indeed, life is beautiful still despite the bad. I always tell my partner that what's more important is we try to stay fit never minding having perfect measurements. My partner goes to the gym while mine is walking.
