For the last few months, I've gotten out of shape and started to put on weight. Most of the weight gain came from not eating balanced meals and working out sporadically.
Two weeks ago, I created and started to follow a pretty good fitness program. The focus of the plan is on getting cardio in 6 times a week and strength training in at least 4 times a week. Of course, a good workout plan should be accompanied by a well-balanced meal plan. For those of you who follow my From Your Kitchen To Mine series, you've seen that I've been choosing to share healthier options for meals. They're healthier but soo tasty!!
Let's talk about motivation. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a super cute dress in the store. I tried it on, and it fit, but it just didn't hang right on my body, but I bought it anyway. I typically don't do that, but I think when I reach the *12 pounds lost* marker, it will look much better. When I got home from the store, I showed Scott the dress and told him I lose 12 pounds, I'm going to put the dress on and he's going to take me on a hot date! He agreed and I'm pretty excited to reach my goal. (He's probably way more excited than I am). The dress in the picture isn't the exact dress I bought, but it looks a lot like it--it's my motivation! After 2 weeks, I'm already down 6, I'm halfway there! 6 down, 6 more to go.
I also told Scott that when I meet my final goal, he has surprise me with something really cool. I'm interested to see what it is, but until then, I'll keep up with my plan. 10 more weeks left and then I'll develop another one.
Do you have any fitness goals? If so, I'd love to hear them!
