Everybody Has A Story: Dee Booker

Happy Sunday!

I hope your first week of December is going great. Can you even believe it’s already the last month of the year?! Time is just flying by at a ridiculous speed.

This is the first post of Everybody Has A Story. This series is meant to help you virtually meet different individuals who are on their own fitness journey. Some of them are trying to gain weight, some of them are trying to lose, some of them are trying to build muscle. They each have different workout routines, eating habits that have gone through trial and error before being the one that worked “for now” and different obstacles they’ve encountered along the way.

 

So… ready to meet Dee Booker? Mr. Booker is my cousin’s boyfriend and father to two of my cutest nieces. Seriously, they’re both adorable. He’s one of the few people I reach out to when I need help and advice with switching up my workout or what changes I should make in regard to my nutrition to see better results. So, he agreed to share a little bit about his journey and was even willing to share a quick video with us as well.

Meet Dee Booker

Name:

Dee Booker

Age:

26

Location:

Houston, Tx

When asked to introduce himself:

The coolest ever

When and how did you begin working out?

At the age of 8 when I began playing sports. I really got into it towards my teenage years

What is your current fitness goal? 

I’m trying to gain 10 to 15 pounds. I work out 3 times a week, about 2-4 hours each time

Have you ever been injured? 

I’ve pulled my groin twice. Treated injury with heat and ice 3 times a day, every day for 3 months

How do you sneak in your workouts with kids?

They jump in rotation with me lol 

What’s your go to meal?

Top ramen noodles and a Herbalife 24 shake post workout. I usually don’t eat pre workout

What advice would you give to someone who is just starting their fitness/wellness journey?

Every day is a new opportunity to get closer to your goals

Every once in a while Dee will post a workout video on his Instagram. Follow him: @joeblow1223.

 

Getting back from my injury, one of the things that Dee told me was “you know your limits. I would just say stay within them until you feel you can push past them.” Of course, it’s not like I didn’t know that. But it’s support like this that gets you grounded and motivated to keep going. As we move along in the series, many will talk to you about running, some about spinning, some about only lifting and others about muay thai, kickboxing or boxing even.

Stick around. I hope you enjoy these in the coming weeks.

MJ
