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!!
