Yes, it’s true! Out of this entire year I have only done 4 independent workouts. And by that I mean workouts outside of my dance workshops and classes at school. I believe this is the least active I have ever been in my entire life. I used to either swim or my jobs required me to be active. When I was coaching swim team I was always walking up and down the pool and moving vigorously to demonstrate technique. When I taught swim lessons I was always swimming up and down the pool with my students and I managed to work in some extra laps. I also always had a gym membership. My bf and I decided this past fall that we were not going to invest in a gym this year to save time and money.
In the fall I was working out consistently because it helped me get through my computer science class. As a result of my lack of exercise, I am at my heaviest weight. I have found new motivation to get healthy after attending my dad’s doctor appointment. I need to take back my life and take better care of myself. No more beating myself down and no more self-sabotage in the form of junk food and sugary snacks.
Thankfully the rest of my life is going well. I love my classes at school and my boyfriend and I are happier than ever. I am challenging myself everyday and am pursuing new interests. I know that becoming a healthier and better version of myself will just make everything even better.
Yesterday I finally got my butt to workout!!!
Workout of the Day: Cardio + Stationary Bike
This workout was way more than a warm-up:
I liked this workout because it was short and sweet and used exercises that I was already familiar with:
I really need to build myself back up again. I was struggling to do leg lifts. Good thing I am Back!!!
Then after all that I rode 40 minutes on the stationary bike and watched “Dance Academy.” It was the end of season 2 so I broke out in tears throughout the show :(.
Word of the Day:
- conducting or conducted inward or toward something (for nerves, the central nervous system; for blood vessels the organ supplied)
I am glad that I got back on track with working out sooner than later. Life gets in the way and it is easy to get off track the main thing is that we Always go back!!!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
