Long time no talk! I know I know...it's me, not you. I'm hoping to blog more regularly now. You have to start from somewhere. So, here I am...starting! Let's just get over this awkwardness and straight into this post!
So, after a year and a half, I finally made it to the gym. Why, after a year and a half? Let's just say mom life has kept me pretty busy. I'm now into a solid routine and ready to get back at it! As far as baby weight goes, I still have 12 pounds to shave off. More importantly though, I want to gain my strength back. I feel my body is weak. I want to gain back cardio strength, core strength and upper body strength.
It's so weird...I use to work out all the time. In college, I skipped classes to go to the gym. Adult life, I always made time for the gym. Due to all this I have always had strength. Sure, I may not have been the leanest of individuals, but I was a healthy, strong person. More important than losing weight, I want to feel healthy, strong and energetic. I want to be the Energizer Bunny (my nickname after college).
How am I going to get there:
- Balance (family time: my loves, work: productivity)
- Healthy diet (cut the sugar)
- Exercise (combine cardio and strength)
- Happiness (cut the negativity out in life)
- Sunshine (feel the rays on my skin) - I have always been a sun person!
How is this blog going to help me:
I want this blog to hold me accountable with the "How am I going to get there". I also hope to share my experiences. My ups and downs. Show people that this is what life is about...ups and downs. I want to share my exercises, foods, recipes and outdoor adventures. For now...this is good. Baby steps with everything (no pun intended).
What I need to ask of myself: Be patient. If I can only lift 10 lbs of weight, it's OK. I'm starting. I will only get better. Just be patient.
What I ask of you: Sit back, relax and let's learn together!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
