Solo 😳

My first time going solo in Pilates this morning was..good. I missed having someone to laugh with when we couldn't stretch right tho lol But I made it! 
I really missed goin Tuesday, but Emma needed me. 


I'm really slow starting toward my goal. I'm nervous about this summer. That's when I bombed out last time. And also where we are trying to sell our home & buy another....I have all these What Ifs & I Wonders in my head. I'm ALREADY worrying about the future! Really?! Who does that?!? Me. That's who. And I'm constantly reminding myself to stop. Constantly telling myself that IT WILL ALL BE OK & if things don't work out as I plan them in my mind IT'S OK. 


Right :)

20 min a day...

NBC Nightly News just had a story about walking 20 minutes a day can help keep you healthy. 
I can't run bc of my ankle & knees. I constantly feel like I'm "boring"  or not good enough for not being a runner bc it's what all my FB friends are doing. SOO I feel like I turned on the tv at the right moment & that news story was for me. It's what I needed to hear! 

I did go WALK a mile this morning & we did Pilates again. My muscles were already sore from Tuesday..I just hope I can walk tomorrow. Honestly, I love the sore feeling. Esp in my stomach! I just hope we keep the motivation up & keep going. It can only get better & easier!

The struggle...

It's real. Totally real this morning. 
And yes, this is my first time at the Y THIS YEAR...I could tell you all my excuses about being cold, tired, not enough sleep..blah blah blah....
I'm just honestly lacking motivation. PERIOD. 
Not a good way to start my New Year BUT! On positive side, I have room for improvement! :p


Just finished up my first Pilates class! It was a little hard at moments but if I keep at it, it'll get easier. Thankful for Tish who helped decide what we were getting into this morning. We are def going back Thursday morning!! 
Oh & I even got a mile in before class on the track! 

(Slow start....but at least I started!)

Let's get it started!

Day 1

It was COLD this morning. Plus it's MONDAY...first day back to school after 2 weeks of sleeping in till 8:30-9am. Those extra few hours are PRECIOUS to me. I'll miss them...

So to get my goal going, I've decided to do things differently this time. I do love to walk, but I'm giving myself more options. 
For every 20 minutes of constant activity I'm giving myself a mile. 
So like this morning, (reread first paragraph lol)....
I did do a 20 minute workout I found online. It concentrated on my belly...I'm sore but I like that feeling! I'm ready to fit back into my fav jeans!
