Ok....remember the other day when I said I was human and had a life outside of teaching???? Well, I am really gonna put myself out there and I'm not gonna lie....it's a little scary. WARNING: This post is not at all teaching related, so stop reading now if you looking for that...
I'm linking up with my teaching buddy and one of my fitness motivators Katie at the Queen of the First Grade Jungle for her new Work It Wednesday linky:) I'm so excited about this...it's gonna keep me accountable this summer.
Ok, here goes my heart.....weight....hate that word...weight....it has ALWAYS been an issue for me. Always a struggle, always a problem....if you're one of those "born skinny/small framed/little" people, God bless you...I wasn't. Without going into too many details, just know that weight and I have had a love hate relationship for as long as I can remember....up and down, and up, and back down, and up, and up, and you get the idea. Well last summer Katie was a huge inspiration to me. I was following her on Instagram and her fitness and healthy eating habits lit a fire under me:) I started lifting weights and working out. Loved that and it was the beginning of me finally figuring out (at the age I am:/) how to get a grip on this battle.
Here's one of many transformation pics.
If you follow me on Instagram you have seen/are seeing this journey I am on:) I kind of hit a wall with the weights only and needed to change things up...
This beautiful girl in the picture with me, my daughter, is another inspiration! She has written workouts and encouraged and pushed and listened and coached and continues to do so daily.
So after doing 2 rounds of 21 day fix, PIYO is my latest obsession!!!
This last pic I'm sharing for 2 reasons....one, I have NEVER had white jeans in my life because I never felt like I could pull them off....so I am pretty excited about that:) The other reason is the quote! With the end of the school year crazies, I have slacked off with my eating and workouts. I am finally learning not to beat myself up and just get after it again!
So goals for this summer....
- DRINK MORE WATER DAILY
- Get back on track with my meals ( I do 21 day fix portions because they are easy to track and that works for me)
- I really want to get back into running
- back at DAILY workouts:)
Katie's linky excites me so much because it will keep me focused and on track for this summer! So once again Katie, just like last summer, thank you for the constant inspiration:) Check out her linky and if you're working on your fitness, join us!!!! It's NEVER too late:)
