Oh hey, look! That's me! I was showing Nikki my little muscles. ;)
If you have been following this blog of mine for any amount of time I am sure you have heard me flapping my gums about health and fitness. But don't mistake me for a health and fitness nut.
I spent my entire youth and early twenties trying my hardest to GAIN weight. Now that I have finally been able to do that I want to maintain a healthy body. =)
So here I am again, getting back into my routine. I even bought this nifty Polar FT4 gadget to help me along the way. Who doesn't love a new gadget?
I saw all of my FitFluential and Fitness loving friends sporting these, and just knew I had to have one! It is so hard to track your calorie burning when you aren't on a machine. Even when you are on a treadmill, elliptical, or bike... that damn thing always tells me I am dead when I am trying to see what my heart-rate is and I question the accuracy.
My short term goals are:
- Hit the gym 3 times a week consistently from here on out.
- Run a 5K in September.
My long term goals are:
- Ride in the MS150, on a bike... not in a car along side the cyclist. hehe.
- Run a half marathon.
Girls compete with each other. Women empower one another. Remember that.
Girls (and some guys) are catty. End of story. I have watched ladies that I loved because they weren't catty, turn into the cattiest and most passive aggressive bitches I've met. I am in such a happy place in my life right now, I don't have time to deal with any of that. I don't care to either.
So whether it is in your fitness journey, your educational/career path, or love life don't let anyone get you down. Brush them off and keep pushing forward.
