Ever since Little Miss was born, I’ve struggled with finding time to work out. It’s not just a lack of time – it’s honestly a lack of effort. I have lost the “wannabe” part of me when it comes to being an athlete.
The ironic part is that I actually weigh less now than I did before I had kids. But that just goes to show that the scale doesn’t always reflect health. I might weight less, but I also have way less strength, way less endurance and overall, way less fitness.
I keep thinking I need to start working out…but it never really materializes. Or it does for a day or two and then…I’m over it.
But a few weeks ago, a lady I know came up to me at a networking dinner and patted my stomach because SHE THOUGHT I WAS PREGNANT.
Talk about a wake up call. Before having kids, I had a pretty strong core. No more. It’s just a bunch of squish now.
So what did I do? After texting my best friends about my recent mortifying experience, I looked up the summer membership at my YMCA. And I signed up.
My membership starts tomorrow and runs through the end of August. I scheduled a gym orientation for tomorrow – I’ll let you know how it goes.
Other than that, I have no idea what I’m going to do. There are some group classes I want to check out, but I really want to do some strength training.
My husband thinks I’ll go for two weeks and then give up. I’m determined to prove him wrong, but I need your help!
Have you followed a strength training plan? Links and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
