Workout Wednesday

Well guys, I’ve hit a snag in my new routine. I blame vacation. I blame the 3 migraines I had last week. I blame summertime and the fact that I would rather sit on a patio with a drink. I blame being tired from work.

Honestly, I should just blame being lazy. I was doing SO GOOD! Hitting my 3 workouts a week goal, and even getting one or two more in.

But then life got in the way.

I’ve got to find that motivation that I had before we left for vacation. I’ve accomplished one workout this week, and will really try to make it a point to get two more in. Two more tiny workouts to get back to my goal. While we are talking about goals, yours truly has really decided to be on the see food diet. You know, you see it you eat it. All that has done is made my stomach feel yucky and fill my head full of regret. (except for the Taco Villa bean burritos I ate, there is never any regret there).

So, that is my workout update this week. I’m ready to feel good again. I’m ready to feel rested again.

SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!

Well guys, I hope you had a great hump day! Only two more days left this week! We can do this!!!

Workout Wednesday

Well guys, I am on week four of my new fitness life, and I am pleased to announce that it’s going really well!! My goal was to make it to the gym, or do some kind of work out 3 times per week. I figured that if I didn’t try to over commit myself, I would be more likely to stick to it. And guess what, IT WORKED. The first two weeks I hit my goal, and last week I actually made it one extra time.

I am feeling great, and starting to see the slightest bit of difference in my body. Others may not be able to see any difference, but I know it’s there. It makes me want to keep going!

Let me tell you this though, I am really freaking sore. I am doing a lot of weight training, so I’m pretty much sore all over. My husband and I did a core routine on Saturday that I am still feeling 4 days later. I was really, really out of shape. I tried to do burpees on Monday, and literally could only do 3 of them. Baby steps, I’ll get there.

I know I have a ways to go, and I am taking it one day at a time. This is going to sound so strange, and super foreign coming out of my mouth, but I am actually enjoying going to the gym. I found a lot of work out programs online that have helped me know what I am doing at the gym. I follow a few girls on instagram that post workout ideas everyday that are helpful!

So, that’s just a little workout update for today. I am really hoping to stay with it. We are going on a vacation for 10 days at the beginning of July, and I have already found some great at home workouts to keep me going even while we are out of town.

The next step, getting this diet of mine under control. I just really love to eat bad things guys.

Wish me luck!!!

Lake Life

WWWWHHHYYYYY can’t every weekend be a 3 day weekend? Even better….why can’t every week be a 4 day work week?

Sigh…grown up life is hard.

We spent our Memorial Day weekend celebrating with family at our lake house. I will never take for granted how blessed we are to have such an amazing place to retreat to! It’s about 3 and a half hours from where we live, which is the perfect distance for really feeling like we are getting away! We spent 3 days floating, wakeboarding, fishing and eating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So this week I decided it’s time that I made a lifestyle change. I have to get this booty in shape. I spend way to much time in my swimsuit during the summer to not be spending some time at the gym. Plus, it just makes me feel better. So, I am committing to at least 3 workouts a week, and then more than that if we have some extra time!!

If anyone has some workout tips for a girl who is not entirely familiar with the weight room…I’m all ears!

Well, kids…I hope you have a great rest of the week!!
