It’s been a little over 7 weeks since I joined a gym. I went to my my personal trainer for 5 of those 7 weeks and it went surprising well. And by well I mean I didn’t cry, I didn’t fall on my face, and I didn’t decide not to go back! Yay me! I am pretty sure there were days where I wanted to kill Howard (my PT) for making me do push ups…..my arms just constantly hurt. Not ok. But, I definitely learned a lot and have gotten a lot more motivation to work out!
So, I have the motivation to work out. Woo hoo! Unfortunately, that isn’t the only factor in the get healthy plan…you’re kind of supposed to eat healthier too. So, I don’t know if any of y’all have joined a gym recently, but when you do take the plunge they ask you all of these embarrassing questions. How long has it been since you worked out? (Too long…) How much do you weigh? (Eek!!) What are your goals? (To not die?) What are your eating habits? (Cheese, cheese, and more cheese) I realized while answering these questions, that I was embarrassed by more than half of my answers. You try explaining to someone who has arms the size of tree trunks what you eat in the average week. Hmmm…grilled cheese, mac & cheese, pizza, cheesecake….pretty much anything with ANY type of cheese. I mean, that’s a minor over-exaggeration…but I could obviously be eating way better.
So there you have it, I have admitted it. I, like every other woman on this planet, am having trouble making myself eat the things I should. It’s really hard, especially when you’re a foodie! I found this website, circa 2009 or so, called Sparkpeople. I have used it on and off since then and found that when I track my food and exercise I am much more likely to eat better and work out harder. This time I am really going to try to keep it up. It’s time to really get healthy!
Remember this tank top I showed y’all a while back, here? I finally bought it last month, and it is my FAVORITE work out top! How do I look getting my fitness on?
Get The Look:
Pants: Bebe sport (Old, from back in the retail workin’ days…)
Headband: Hobby Lobby
Isn’t it just the cutest top ever? I love. I have a new found need for anything and everything work out related. I have found a new one that I am going to have to buy as soon as my spending freeze is over! Gotta love a good Pitch Perfect reference….
Well anyways, as I sit here eating chocolate pudding (give me credit, it’s from Whole Foods) I ask you: What do you guys do to keep healthy? Have any good recipes for me? Help me, help me, help me!
