Get thyself to the gym!

March 5 – Let’s try another fitness week – Dance two times a week; workout two additional times.
March 12 – No “fried” foods (this means, no fast food French fries (although oven fries are good), no potato chips (unless they are “baked”), no fried chicken) AND focus on wedding things (finish escort card design; get thank you notes OUT THE DOOR; final decisions on music; start “must take” photography list)

So, I’m already at a disadvantage for this week. Matt is standing up in a wedding on Saturday and therefore I won’t be able to go to dance on Saturday. So, really this goal is more like “get your butt to the gym” week. Which I’m actually succeeding at! I’ve been to the gym twice so far this week and plan to go Saturday (before the wedding) and probably Sunday as well. I have dance tonight. So, that puts me at two gym workouts (so far), one dance class (tonight), and two potential gym (or home) workouts (Saturday and Sunday). I’ve also taken to doing a little stretching before bed the last few nights. I’m hoping I can keep this up. It feels good, so I should! Plus, there is the added bonus of the fact that when I’m working out regularly I tend to eat better too!

Next week my physical goal is to not feed myself fried foods. The REAL goal next week though is to get some wedding details out of the way!

Also, I should note - I didn’t have any soda last week. I have since had a little soda, but not nearly as much as I WAS drinking before. I’m more into tea these days (caffeine free teas!). :-)

LASTLY, I’d love some suggestions/ideas on goals to try for the coming weeks. Let’s hear them!


  1. If you want to work out but don't have the time, I suggest 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels. It's about 1/2 hour from warm up to cool down. You're doing well at blogging so far and good job meeting your goals.

  2. I'm really enjoying the gym right now, but I've considered doing the 30 Day Shred. My problem is, I'm MUCH more likely to go to the gym or go to a class than I am to do a video at home (as evidence by the TONS of workout DVDs I have and DON'T do). :-)
