Fitness Restart: Week One

Hello my dearies,

…Okay. Uh so I missed last week 😅. No point in saying I just forgot to post about it when the truth is I didn’t even go. There are many excuses I could give such as my last two semesters of college are beginning and I have been distracted by that or that my daughter is starting kindergarten after Labor Day or even that I am trying to transition to a different job. BUT, I am only hurting myself because they are just excuses. There are people who are going through hell but still commit to things if they really want change. So with that in mind, I really put my mind to getting out of bed when my alarm goes off and get to the gym. Change will not happen unless I make it. There is one day of workouts that I missed but it is still a step in the right direction.

This week was more focused on cardio. There were two days that had ab and booty workouts but it was not my main focus. The big reason: my running form is not the greatest. In high school, I was on the track team and before we even started tracking times or practicing relays, the coaches made sure we all had the proper running form. And on Monday, as soon as I got off the treadmill, I knew my form needed work. Basically, back to the building blocks.

Alright, so, this coming week, what are my plans? Well, as I sit here typing, I keep looking at my legs and think ‘I need to start toning’. I shall take that as a sign and map out a routine for toning up my lower body as well as continue with cardio. Time to git er’ done! 🏋️‍♀️👍

XOXO, Kelly
