So, today I am talking about my fitness. Last winter was pretty tough for me, I was a little depressed, and I liked to eat as much crap as I could. There was no way I was leaving the house to work out (even though I needed it) in the awful winter weather. No way. This summer I realized I'd become a little more squishy than ever. I guess eating junk and not working out actually does make a difference. Who knew?
Anyway, I decided it was time to get back in shape! The squishy body was definitely incentive to get back to work, but honestly I made this decision because it just.feels.good. My winter depression was a result of multiple reasons, but a part of it was sitting on my bum all the time. I totally believe that working out is good for the mind, body, and soul!
I still eat all the junk I want, I'm not good with self control. But I make it a point to work out 5 days a week. A fab body surely is a perk of working out (not that I have one,but I wouldn't mind to have one someday ha) but I think the best part of working out is feeling like I have a powerful body. It feels so good to know that if I need to lift a heavy object- I can. Twisting off a water bottle cap is another story, that's what husbands are for :) If I need to run- I can run. You get the point? Women should feel powerful, so I'm not letting this go. I'm going to continue to work out because it feels good, because I like it, and because I'm doing it for me.
Nicole and I meet each morning between 6-6:30 for our run. We have witnessed some of the most beautiful sunrises ever! I'm going to have to start running with my camera to capture some proof! #crazyblogger
Confession: I don't have a twitter, I've never even seen a twitter, but I've always wanted to do that hash tag thing haha!
Want to hear some exciting/crazy news? Nicole and I will be running a 10k next month. I figured if I'm going to kill myself, I may as well be thorough and skip the 5k :) Wish us luck! Because we all know I definitely need it haha!
I'm the complainer in this relationship... obviously.
We had already been doing Jillian Michael's No Trouble Zones dvd (LOVE it) and when I saw 30 Day Shred all over blog land we decided to give it a try. It is SO great! So great that I never have the violent urge to punch Jillian Michael's in the mouth. Sometimes work out videos have that affect on me.. Tony Horton anyone?? Anyway, we definitely recommend both of those work out DVDs to everyone! Try them, you'll be so happy you did!
Running, spin, free weights, work out DVDs, these are all a huge part of my life now. My day, my body, and my attitude are all better because of them. Feeling powerful is much more important to me than feeling skinny, THAT is why I am loving getting back in shape.
