It is amazing what happens when I stop planning and start doing. I am telling you ever since I stoppedweighing myself my motivation has kicked into high gear. It all started with a decision to just move.
Sunday: 1 Mile Easy Run: We were at the park taking infield practice like all families do and I decided to go for a run. After all of my past training, I pretty much have my entire neighborhood mapped out in run distances. So I decided to just dust the cobwebs off my legs and run a mile.
Monday: 3 Sets of 25 Squats, Crunches, Reverse Crunches, Bicep Curls, Over The Head Tricep Curls and 1 Minute Reverse Plank right before I jumped in the shower.
Wednesday: Zumba followed by a 1 Mile run: You can read about my Zumba experience here.
Thursday: 2.12 Mile Run: On a whim I decided to put on my shoes and go for a run around the neighborhood. I planned on only doing a mile again but changed my mind once I was out on the road.
Friday: Yoga: I received a text from friend inviting me to go to a yoga class at the gym and I decided what the heck. After all if I survived Zumba I could do yoga. It was all fun and games until the instructor said “Standing Splits!”
Saturday: : 3 Sets of 25 Squats, Crunches, Reverse Crunches, Bicep Curls, Over The Head Tricep Curls and 1 Minute Reverse Plank followed by shaking my groove thang at my cousins Quincenera.
I have no idea how last week impacted my number on the scale because I have yet to weigh myself. What I do know is taking baby steps caused a domino effect. Not only did I move but I found myself eating better, not great but better. Not once did I swing through a drive thru or make a stop for a soda. So my words of encouragement to you is to GET MOVING!
How is your get fit journey going?
