Maybe I’ll try this one more time:
Hi, guys. Several years after I started this tumblr, I’m still not where I want to be health-wise. My self-image has improved drastically, but I still have a long way to go. I’ve started, stopped, and restarted my fitness journey more times than I care to count, and while none of those stints got me to my goals, I’d like to think that they all brought me a little bit closer, made me a little bit stronger for the next time around.
I write this with a killer sinus headache while taking a
short break from the first real workout I’ve done in weeks. But I’m going to power through the rest of the workout (only about 20 minutes left!), and it’s going to be my Day 1 of Let’s Try Again. I’m using the Blogilates workouts/workout calendar, eating as clean as I can (while still enjoying home food for the short time that I’m actually home), and generally trying to be better to my body. That means more water, more regular sleep, and regular exercise.
I feel good about this one. Then again, I always feel good when I restart. We’ll see how far this time around takes me.
Drop me a line if you want to pick up the weights again with me!
“Barack and I work out every day,” she [said]. “I usually get to the gym before he does. But he is usually there either in the middle of my workout or right at the end. And we’re watching `SportsCenter’ and we’re catching up. That’s why I know so much about sports … and you start having an opinion about (New York Jets quarterbacks Tim) Tebow and Mark Sanchez.”
If she’s travelling Mobama jumps rope or does calisthenics. “If I don’t have a rope or space, I might do a 30-minute routine that includes a minute of jumping jacks alternating with a minute of push-ups, then some sit-ups. You take a 30-second break and do it again.”
(So if the POTUS and the FLOTUS can find time to work out then so can you!)
I have the Obamas exercising on my blog. Omg
If the president and his lady have the time to workout… dear god I want to hear your excuses :) just 30min of 24 hours people :)
I think it’s perfectly okay to have reasons why you don’t work out, but I think it’s equally important to realize that those reasons are choices and you have control over them.
^ That. It can happen in small increments of small changes, but it’s in your power.
