Without sounding like every other typical girl out there - I have to say that I'm definitely not satisfied with my weight/fitness level right now. We've become slackers about going to the gym (and it's seriously two minutes from our house, so that's sad). Without complaining about how enormous I am
My lovely friend Adrienne is getting married in May, and I'm super excited that this is my first time being a bridesmaid. She picked out lovely dresses, and mine is being whipped up somewhere right now. I tried on the store sample - and it fit - just was a little tiny bit snug
I've tried the route of setting a goal of working out x times per week. I always make excuses. And while that still needs to happen, I needed a better way to track what I was doing and become motivated by that. So I've decided to copy what I've seen a lot of people do - track the miles I've ran in 2010 and post it here. But let's be honest - I'm not a runner and I won't be posting miles in double-digit increments. And half of the time I use the elliptical anyway. So I'm calling it "miles moved" instead. Because I've decided moving myself in someway is better than nothing.
[side note: I happened to have gotten some free NikeID shoes through work (yay french benefits haha!) which allow for you to use the Nike+ tool to track your workouts, but it doesn't work with the two types of ipods I already have - classic and shuffle... which is very frustrating!]
I'm late into the year getting started, mainly because I was sick for the first few weeks of the new year :( and I've since been working late at work, and simply didn't have the energy to workout when I get home at 8 (after 1.5 hour commute home) and go to bed at 10 (cue sad violin music). But this week marks my official start - 1.2 miles moved! (please don't mock me...)
I will keep track at the bottom of the blog as the year goes on, and maybe by December I will have reached double digits...
