Fitness Friday week 1

I'm a busy mamma, so working out is the last thing on my to do list. Recently, I've been having the urge to work out and that NEVER happens. So last week I decided that I was going to start working out. I usually go through spurts where I'll work out for a couple of weeks and then stop for a couple of weeks months and then start again. I used to have a friend that we would push each other to go almost every day but she has moved leaving me to go alone, that's why it's so hard to keep going. It's so easy to go when you have others going with you or others motivating you to continue. 

After my first work out last week I thought maybe I should blog about it that way I'd HAVE to continue because if I stopped then my readers would know that I stopped. In reality, most of my readers probably wouldn't even care but in my mind they would. And in my mind they'd think I was lazy, and we don't want that.

I never got to post about my work out last week. I actually didn't post at all last week. I've been slacking. BUT I was reading some of the blogs I follow this morning and came across a link up that Desirae at Going with the flow started about working out/fitness! So I am def. starting this link up and will hopefully continue it so that my work outs will continue.

So this is kind of everywhere but I wanted to share with everyone my first work out and my weigh in.
I want to explain something first: I am not trying to lose a ton of weight, maybe 5-7lbs that is it. I am mostly trying to get fit. I don't think I have any muscles, and if I do, I can't find them. So the goal is either find my muscles or get some.  Anyways here's my work out schedule for last week.
My first work out was on 11/25/2012 & I weighed in at 130 lbs. I took a picture of my body so that I can compare it monthly & when I finally get to my goals. That week I went to the gym around 5:00 AM to get a work out in before work. Because it’s been forever, I only went every other day. My work out consisted of 15 minutes on the treadmill & then I would do machines and then abs and squats after. I alternated my days, so one day I did upper body, the other day I did lower & I always ended all the days with some kind of abs work out. I only did short reps because it’s been forever and I didn’t want to outdo myself.

I don’t really have a diet that I’ve been doing to share. I usually eat somewhat ok but being so busy it’s hard to have a healthy meal plan. I try to stick to a quick breakfast, a salad and yogurt for lunch and then whatever for dinner. Hopefully, I can start a healthy meal plan to share with everyone.

I plan on making these posts a little more organized as to what machines I do and reps, etc. but I’m still all new at this. If you want to start working out or already do and have some tips/advice come join in on the link up!
Sadly, I did not work out at all this week. I actually pulled something in my neck this weekend and it’s still hurting but I hope to be back at working out on Sunday & I will continue to link up, every week. No more excuses.

  1. Funny thing my sister & I just finish talking about this over the phone. I have really bad love handles and I can't seem to let them go! I'm 5'1 and I weight 118 my goal is 110 so 8 pounds to lose. I'm a junkie at food but when it comes to having to do dinner or anything that Demi is gonna eat out of I'm super healthy. So I agree when it comes to working out I hate it! But I plan on working out again.
