A love/hate relationship for the books – me and fitness.
Don’t get me wrong, I was quite the active child. It’s not like I had grown up a non-exercising child. My parents had me involved in just about any outdoor sport possible. But as I grew up and started making my own fitness decisions, I found that I really, really, really was not motivated to stay in shape. I hated everything about being active.
But there comes a day where you start to feel just a little bit lazy – and that day is around your twelfth Saturday in a row binging on Netflix and Chinese food. And as you can tell, I’ve hit that day. But as someone who had been an extremely active child, I had always overestimated my ability to do anything fitness related. “Oh I’ve run two half marathons, I can go out and run three miles whenever I want, I’m not out of shape.”
Well the truth is, I am out of shape. I am severely out of shape. Honestly. I can’t even run up three flights of stairs without being winded and needing a Gatorade. So what did I do about it? I sat down and made some realistic goals about fitness.
What are my fitness goals? I want to feel better about myself, to start taking better care of my body, and if I lost a little weight in that process I wouldn’t be mad. (But I mean who would?) So to make those things happen, I need y’all’s help! How do you stay motivated? How do you stay on a consistent schedule? How much do your eating habits affect the way you work out?
I’m open to any and all suggestions! Help ya girl get fit and then stay tuned to figure out how exactly I plan on doing it.
