For the past few months I have had three friends inspire me with their fitness goals being made. Boy do they look incredible! Thank you friends for being my motivation!
Well I FINALLY just said to myself "quit whining about it and DO SOMETHING about it. So in April I started my new fitness goals. I found this awesome FREE app on my phone called "my fitness pal". It basically is a food and exercise journal and it is so helpful to record the things I eat and the exercises that I do each day.
I'm not on a diet. I eat what I want and just record my calories, once I hit my daily quota I'm done for the day. I have to admit that most days I really have to try hard to eat enough.
My main fitness goal is not focused on losing weight (surprisingly) It is to tone up my 'soft spots'. I have a pretty awesome weight lifting routine that I do almost every day and after one month I am happy to report that I can see a difference!
Even Chris said that he can tell that I am getting more toned. My pants are fitting better and my 'dimples' are becoming less noticeable.
More importantly I feel better! I love that part! I love the smell of walking into the gym.... it just gets my blood pumping. I love the taste of my protein shakes at the end of a workout. I love feeling the burn of pushing myself in one of my exercise classes. I love feeling sore the next day because that means that I worked hard the day before. I love that I still have another month before swim suit season hits :-). I love that I am healthier!
