Week 4 Fitness

Well here is another week gone since hitting 2013. I am feeling like I am now in the habit of eating healthy and feeling fit.

But I got hit with a big realization!!

I'm not doing this for anyone, but for myself.

Its fun to show off what you have done and what you accomplished, but I have to take a step back and not let that fuel my healthy lifestyle.

I have never felt better, I have a lot more energy and I'm not feeling like caca after a meal because its not full of butter and grease (the occasional burger never did anyone harm, right:).

It feels good seeing my family eating well and feeling good because of what we are eating and how we are eating.

Eating together as a family is so important. It doesn't always happen, but we try to always sit at the table (starting this year, its never too late).

It helps to have a healthy lifestyle, when everyone is doing it together. Thats why accountability programs like Weight Watchers works. Because you are doing it with someone else.

If you haven't heard it enough, I love My Fitness Pal.

I love encouraging others and seeing their growth and accomplishing so much!

I think my favorite part is that at the end of the day you can see how much protein, vitamin A and C, iron, and calcium you got. I like that because it shows me how I'm eating.

My husband has really been getting excited about eating healthy. The other night he watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, a documentary about the benefits of juicing.

So........ it looks like we are getting a juicer :)


Here is my week in fitness. I have been following the Tone It Up girls on their Love Your Body campaign to Valentines Day and also incorporating some extra runs.

Monday: Wild Child Workout,
Tuesday: 8 mile run with Cupid Cardio for the first 4; Love your Body/Love Your Legs/Love your Abs Workout (2x each)
Wednesday: Cocktail Workout; 5 mile run with Date Night Cardio
Thursday: Morning Yoga with Tara Stiles; Booty workout with Jeanette Jenkins
Friday: (planned) Early Morning Run (2-3 miles), yoga or a walk

How is your week in fitness and health going?



  1. yay! isn't it so fun, that feeling of doing something good for yourself and just feeling better like for real? because of it? i love that. i had a bit of a binge the past few days but am ready to get back to it this week, (with the exception of my birthday of course ;)

  2. I have been putting off getting back into my running (using winter as an excuse) and reading this has really given me a push to get going!
