Fit for Me 6/52

What I did last week:

Wednesday-15 minute ab workout

Thursday-30 minutes on the treadmill

Saturday-1 hour of BodyPump. I know you all are really excited about hearing about my BodyPump experience. I did alright this week. I know I didn’t make it through all the tracks, but I cannot remember which ones they were.

Sunday-We walked the dogs for about 20 minutes. It was such a beautiful weekend!

Monday-15 minute ab workout

Tuesday-30 minutes on the bike

Impressed by:

Being active everyday despite schedule hiccups. Seriously the people running Tom’s academy need to learn about a calendar and effective communication. They will tell him the morning of that he has to stay until 11 that night. How hard is it to pre-plan so the students know how to plan their outside lives? Apparently really difficult, or they assume they have no outside lives and responsibilities.

Struggled with:

I am having some image issues with the remnants of my baby bump. Sometimes it is hard to remember to give myself grace and know that my “imperfect” body is actually perfect. There are some pants in my closet that I think I just need to accept that my hips wont ever go back into and get rid of them, instead of letting them taunt me every time I go in there contemplating what to wear. I think it is hard too because my weight is back down to my pre-pregnancy weight,  so the fact that things shifted and my pre-pregnancy clothes aren’t comfortable is discouraging. I keep thinking, “Well I lost the weight, this should be fitting! Trying to squeeze my widening hips into these pants is a definite confidence slasher. It’s a frustrating process that I just need to let go and stop focusing on so harshly.

Did I meet my goal from last week?

I did my workouts both Wednesday and Monday! Pats on the back.

What is my goal for next week?

I want to up my mileage on the bike to 6 miles. It has been a while since I have gotten on a bike, so yesterday my legs and tush weren’t so happy.

Fitness Thoughts:

Why are gym radios so loud? The radios at the two gyms I frequent are on so loud that I can’t hear my own music through headphones. Is it just me? I am all for having music for those that don’t have headphones, but seriously it should not be so overwhelming. Does the loud music help others workout, and I am just missing that motivational memo? I guess I just like to choose my own loud pump up jams.

Just a reminder that my hips don’t lie. My size is awesome.

Do you have insecurities about your image? How do you overcome those? What is you favorite workout song?

  1. I am a new Mom and military wife as well, to a beautiful 9 month old, and I feel your itch to get rid of the old clothes! Pre baby weight does not equal pre baby body for me either. Sounds like you are doing a great job, keep at it!!

I would love to hear your thoughts!
