Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Wellness from the Inside Out

Wellness from the Inside Out

The age old battle between knowing excersise is good for you and actually wanting to excersise is as old as time. I mean really who doesn't know that excersise, movement is good for you at this point. But who wants to do it all the time? I for one find it had to stay motivated all the time...even though I have been athletic most of my life I was never one to get up extra earlier to run more or lift more weights in the weight room that was never me. But I always enjoyed the challenge of training with my teammates and the feelings of accomplishment after we were done. For the most part those two things kept me going throughout high school and college Vollyball. Afterwards, in the real world without a schedule and teammates I really didn't workout or have a plan. It has taken me a long time to find schedule again. I think it was living in D.C. and being settled their that I WANTED-key word-I wanted to get back into shape. It was slow and painful required me being consistant again and even a trainer-Candance Green I miss you still-to reach my goals.

Now, having lived in L.A. for six years, I am trying to find that schedule again-there has been spit and starts over the years-no real reason I just haven't that WANT. But lately I have been feeling that way, not to fit into a dress, but I WANT to feel strong again. And I have to remind myself that it took me two years to get into shape in D.C. and that was also filled with spits and starts. 

 

So what's the plan?

My plan is to have fun with getting in shape. I think not making my health a race, but a lifelong journey takes the pressure off. That doesn't mean that I don't have goals because I do-my goals aren't tied to a dress size or swimsuit ready for summer thing. It's about mixing it up and having fun but also about challenging myself by trying new things that I haven't tried before. Veritcal Climber anyone? Yes! And it was challenging but fun-I tried the class with two friends-sudo teammates!
