I want to rewind to when this all started. I’ve always been self conscious since I could ever remember. I was in decent shape when I had my first daughter 7.5 years ago and never really got back to that point until I almost did last fall, but then I started slacking, ALOT! I got so wrapped up in being busy with work, my girls, and some life changes that I stopped taking care of myself, and because of that I gained over 25 pounds. That has been VERY hard for me to swallow because I was on such a good track, but I’ve given up one too many times and I’m super determined now. I want to feel better, fit back into some of my favorite clothes, but most importantly I want to be the healthiest me for my family.
I decided to track my progress for a few reasons:
- To keep myself accountable
- To track my progress
- To hopefully inspire someone in some way
I’ve done the 21 day fix extreme workouts a few times and always had good results with it, so that’s what I’m starting with again. After that, theres a couple of programs I’m going to do, but will talk about that later. 🙂 I had a gym membership, but quickly found with my really busy schedule that didn’t work for me, and that’s ok. Here’s the 21 day fix extreme workout calendar for any of those interested. I don’t workout on the weekends, so I personally typically skip the yoga and pilates.
I don’t want to eventually teach or coach someone. I just want to track my progress, share tips that work for me (and the ones that don’t) and hopefully to inspire someone to work hard toward their goals!
For my first blog post I wanted to share a little more background and also what my intentions are before the tips and recipes come in.
I want anyone reading this to know that your goals have to be realistic and attainable. You also have to completely dedicate yourself in order to reach them but I know you can do it! I hope you are ready to follow my hot mess-ness!
