Thank you to the hosts: Stephen Tremp, L. Diane Wolfe, Michael Di Gesu & Alex J. Cavanaugh. They have teamed up for a Blog Hop that focuses on making 2013 a healthier year!
I have always considered myself to be a big fitness buff. Oh yes.
It doesn't mean that its true though. The very few people who know me IRL and are reading this are probably laughing. But let me say this: Just because there is no actual evidence that I've ever been a big fitness junkie doesn't mean I'm not. I mean in my mind I am, and that's that. I constantly think about working out. I constantly think about eating very healthy. And I constantly imagine myself in top notch shape. So I figure.... *I think* THEREFORE *I am*.... just not physically. And if there is no such thing as a honorary fitness buff then there should be.
Since I've had the big blessing of carrying twins, I've had to try my bestest to make it more than just honorary. Am I there yet? Nope. But I try by logging my nutrition, water consumption and workouts on My Fitness Pal daily..er.. when I remember to keep me accountable. I do different types of DVD workouts in combination with taking up jogging at the beginning of this year. My one goal I must meet is to jog at least 12 miles a week. Though, I will be honest and say I failed last week when the little people were sick. And you know what? That's OK. We all have a life to live and realistically speaking its impossible to have the same routine with no deviations now and again. The important thing is to keep going as soon as you have the chance.
I'm quite short so it doesn't take much for me to look unfit-like and that really really sucks. I have to lose about 15 lbs which doesn't sound like a whole lot and easy peasy but the problem is those are the lbs that LOVE me to death and refuse to break up with me. And since I love love I've had a hard time breaking its heart. Eventually, I'll do it though.
Actually, now that I said it on my blog I have to do it, right? Right! Now, let's see what I can actually accomplish.... I'll leave you with a few quotes that motivate me to keep trying:
A year from now you'll wish you would have started today.
