Daily Fitness – Day 1

I have had this blog for several months now and have just played around here and there with it.

Today I decided that I am going to use it to track my goal of doing something good for my body every day.
Something fitness related. If I track it here – I’m accountable.

I’ve been bitching for a long time about being unhappy with how I look.
Lately I’ve been unhappy with how I feel.

There are a couple of pictures floating around our house of me in a bikini. We were at the beach. Cuyler was around 2.5.
I rocked that bikini so hard.
I gotta be honest – I loved being skinny.
Beyond being thin, I was toned.
And tight.
And had TWO kids already.
Currently I am not toned nor tight.

I know I won’t look like that again and I’m ok with that. I had the boys in my twenties. I had Eva in my thirties. A lot changes.  Shifts.
I do need to make some changes and I think as I near my next decade that there is no time like today to start.

I have a gym membership that I barely use. I think I need to do a variety of things so I don’t get bored.

I spotted these stairs in the winter when it was full of tobogganers and thought it would be a good workout. I’ve been wanting to add it in to my regime for awhile and today I did.

I did 10 up, 10 down.
For the “ten up” I alternated between sprinting and moderate walking.
I did one more up and when I got to the top I ran around the school, out to the street and down the road back to where my van was parked. At the time I tried my very best not to vomit beside my van.
Then I stretched, chugged back some water. And went on my way thinkng “Damn, I am out of shape!”

After the kids went to bed I did a bunch of pilates leg exercises while I watched 48 Hours Mystery.
I also did some weights for my arms.

I wonder what I’ll do tomorrow?

    Good for you! I’d recognize those stairs anywhere… My elementary school. We hates sprinting up them when the bell rang to tell us recess was over!
