I haven’t written an entry since FEBRUARY! I know you all believe it because I go through fits and spurts of blogging and doing really well with a set schedule and then just fall away without warning. Well, here I am for the latest spurt of fitness blogging! Little Elfkin is 9 months old now and *so* adventurous. She loves her Mama and Daddy but she also wants to explore any and everything in her little world. She has been helping pull weeds, enjoys the swingset at the park, and has boundless energy. She isn’t quite independently mobile yet, but when she is, you can bet that we’ll be on our toes. She’s my inspiration for getting fit again. She’s been my excuse, but now that she’s gotten so much bigger, I know that I really need to focus on getting stronger so that the day I set her down and never pick her back up again is as far away as possible. Ahem! I’m not crying, you’re crying! Moving on..
I’m going to be following NerdFitness guidelines for mindset, nutrition, and quests, but I have group classes available to me at work too. I went to bootcamp on Monday and only made it through about half the class before getting completely winded, sore, and super-duper sweaty. I said I’d be back on Tuesday for the next group class, but here it’s Friday and I haven’t gotten away from my desk for any amount of time that matters. I’m so *busy* that I just don’t feel like there’s time to go. I got stuck in meetings over the time that the group class was offered, but then I didn’t make up for it after-the-fact either. Instead, I went to a happy hour with my colleagues where I ate chips and drank beer.
I need to revisit the mindset module to document the Big Why in an official format, and I need to figure out what my first challenge is going to encompass. I cannot just hit the ground running and expect to be where I was back in 2012 by next week. 3 words: Not gonna happen. There are changes I can make though, that will make a huge difference in my health and wellness, so I need to explore what changes I can make NOW that will help lead me towards the end-game.
Coming up on Saturday–The Weigh In and the Big Why.
