I have not been focused on fitness lately. I can just feel its toll on my body, mind, and spirit. I felt uncomfortable on my clothes allllll day yesterday. Talk about a workout motivator. There are about 569874564 other things that needed to be done around my house, but I just had to put them all in the back of my mind and GO WORKOUT.
I pushed myself harder than I have in a long time. Partially because I'm tired of nothing fitting correctly, and partially because I haven't been pushing myself...at ALL.
Immediately after my workout, I felt great. I then saw this photo in my husband's office.
Why yes, that is me. Talk about reaffirming my motivation. No, I will probably never look like this again. Considering this was 5 years ago when I didn't give a flying flip about what I ate, exercise, or healthy eating...I honestly have no clue how I looked like this. None.
What's the point of all this?
It is time for me to refocus. Remember what I love and what I want to blog about.
What does this mean for you-the reader? Expect more workouts and "skinny" dishes. I'm all about home workouts and hope to supply you with some information and skills you can use with me! I have somehow reached 70 GFC followers, and plan to do a fitness themed giveaway at 100 GFC followers OR for New Years...whichever comes first.
In the mean time, I have designed a 12 week fitness plan to get me back on track. But as always, you can workout all you want, but if you can kill healthy living by what you put in your mouth.
Again, my workouts involve a small amount of equipment (yoga ball, free weights, resistance bands), but can all be done at the gym as well. I was blessed to be handed down an elliptical trainer from my fabulous aunt, so you will have to fill in your choice of cardio. JUST MOVE.
The plan consists of 30 minutes of cardio followed by strength training. Once you get the pattern of the first 2 weeks down, you will be set for the total 12 weeks.
Day 1: Cardio + Chest/Triceps
Day 2: Cardio+ Lower Body
Day 3: Cardio+ Abs
Day 4: Cardio+ Shoulders/Biceps/Back
Day 5: Cardio+ Lower Body
Day 6 (optional): Yoga
Day 1: Cardio+ Lower Body
Day 2: Cardio + Chest/Triceps
Day 3: Cardio+ Abs
Day 4:Cardio+ Lower Body
Day 5: Cardio+ Shoulders/Biceps/Back
Day (optional): Yoga
See the pattern? I will post Week 1: Day 1 on Friday (12/2) so you can plan and prepare for Monday!
I invite and encourage you to join me.
