Fitness

I want to talk about fitness today. 

2012 was a big year for me fitness-wise. There were some serious health goals that I accomplished (and some that I almost accomplished).

The keyword there: were.

I want to be honest here. Ever since my stress fracture, I have pretty much completely lost it. Some of that has to do with getting out of the routine. The other part has to do with switching jobs. Instead of working M-F 8-5, I'm working 9 hour days with every other Friday off.

And believe me, I am STOKED. But when I'm getting in to work at 7AM instead of 8, it's tougher to get to the gym in the morning.

I could honestly list a long list of excuses for you right now. And they all most of them make sense, but really, that doesn't matter.

I'm not as happy as I was before.

I have less energy.

I just don't feel like myself anymore.

For a solid 9 months of this year, I was feeling so much stronger than I ever have before. I may not have noticed a difference on the scale, but I could feel the difference.

And honestly? The only reason I wasn't seeing a difference on the scale was because of me. Was because of my diet choices.

You can only work off so many feasts of Mexican food, am I right?

I want to get back there. 

Screw waiting for New Years to make resolutions, I want to start now

And I want to do it better than before. Instead of throwing all of my energy into my work out routine, I want to focus some on making better diet choices too. I already cut out meat (still pesky and going strong!), so might as well make it count right? 

After all, subbing carbs and sweets for meat won't do the trick, will it?

So here's to change. 

Did it once. I can do it again.

Girl- I'm right there with you. I want to get back to the point where I felt AND looked good. My diet choices have consisted of a LOT of mexican food lately and that has been majorly cut down on. I'm currently trying to do the Insanity workout- cheers to getting fit!!! :)

This year was a big years for me too fitness wise. In fact I ended up loosing 17 lbs & on a 5' 2'' frame it looks like a lot. I've gotten out of my routine a lot these last few weeks and I hate how I feel. I need to get back up and starting working out again. The biggest thing that helped me diet wise was the app my fitness pal which is a super easy calories and exercise counter.

If I didn't know any better, I'd think I wrote this post myself. Except I didn't suffer a stress fracture, I suffered a vacation. Haha... but seriously. I was doing so well throughout the year and then I just lost my groove. I'm trying to ease back into it but it's harder than I remember it being the first time! However, knowing we've done this before - we can definitely do this again!

And I completely understand what you mean about not feeling as happy and not having as much energy. I really miss all those endorphins!

When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as

relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to

fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s

why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub

tap to add.http://www.plumpinguk.co.uk/bath-taps.html

When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as

Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in

the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a

few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about

spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also,

many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
