Get Fit

Most people start off a new year with a lot of resolutions. One of those is typically SOMETHING about getting in shape, losing weight or others on those lines. How many of us actually stick to it though? This blog is hopefully going to help me {and whoever stumbles upon it} stay motivated to GET FIT!

It's not about being thin {in my humble opinion}. It's about being FIT! It's about being able to do things: Waterskiing/Wakeboarding, Hiking, Mountian Biking, Climbing... whatever it is that YOU want to do! It's about taking care of our bodies. It's about living a full and fun life!! I am no expert, but I am on the road to living a happier and healthier life.

Because of how I roll, I will not be throwing out numbers {how much I weigh, how much I want to weigh...} because frankly the number doesn't matter to me {at least that's what I keep telling myself}. I want to feel good and be able to be active with my family. Let me know if you'd like to join me {it's always good to get a lot of different ideas when it comes to working out}!

The biggest hurdle, in my opinion, is getting up off your butt and DOING SOMETHING!!! ANYTHING!! Find what it is that works for you and stick with it! Is it running {outside or on a treadmill}? Yoga? Aerobics Class? Going to the Gym? But do SOMETHING, EVERY day. Park farther away from the store, walk up and down your stairs a few extra times. Play Airplane with your kids!

Here's what my week looks like.

Monday: Run
Wii Fit - Arms
Tuesday: XT
Wii Fit - Core
Wednesday: Run
Wii Fit - Legs
Wii Fit - Arms
Wii Fit - Core
Saturday: XT
Wii Fit - Legs
Sunday: OFF

I typically run for 30 minutes {sometimes that includes my warm up and cool down}. Right now that's on a treadmill but when the snow melts I'll be hitting the pavement. XT {Cross Training} is also for 30 minutes, non impact. I use a Gazelle or stationary bike. Or sometimes I'll use a dance workout video.

I love my Wii Fit. It takes about 30-45 minutes to do a days workout. It includes strength training and yoga. But not everyone has a Wii Fit; so I'll be posting each individual workout later!!

Lets help each other achieve our FITNESS goals! Let me know if you'd like to be a contributor! I welcome your comments. And I'm always looking for fresh and fun workout ideas!
