Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Sharing Fitness on Friday...
My husband and I joined the gym this past Fall after finding we had more "time" with our daughter being at college. I've focused on the cardio, typically the tread mill up until this week. With the help of my daughter, I'm learning how to use some of the machines to build more strength and muscle.
Do you belong to a gym, workout at home, or a combination of the two? What works the best for you?
Do you track your daily steps? A friend gifted me the "Fit Bit Zip" last June and this inspired me to focus on achieving the daily 10,000 step goal. I noticed I started to sleep better at night when I reached this goal, especially when I completed this walking outside.
My goal isn't to wear a size 2 but instead to be healthier so I can live longer and hopefully live to be 100 or so. I know the risks associated with obesity and the various health risks triggered by carrying the extra weight. If I want to work until I retire and help raise my grandchildren like my parents did with our daughter, I need to be healthier.
According to the BMI and suggested target weight for my age and height, I need to lose between sixty-three and one-hundred four pounds! Yikes! Personally, this seems like too much weight and fear I'd look sick. My first mini goal is to fit into a size 14 comfortably, with wearing a size 12/14 as the ultimate goal.
I don't know how much weight this is but in order to reach this goal, I know it's time to start weight training alongside with my hour of cardio. I have the "Black Card" at Planet Fitness so I can always bring a friend with me. To have an accountability partner helps keep me focused and on task. What helps to keep you on task?
In order to keep the blog real and honest, I'm sharing my weight and BMI with you. My husband, daughter, and a few friends are my accountability parnters BUT to post this on my blog, OUCH! This motivates me not to roll over when the alarm goes off at 4:15 again. Please don't judge my numbers, one day and one workout at a time...I'm striving for health.
If you haven't checked your weight with a BMI chart, will you take a moment to check? If your number startles you, will you let this motivate you to be healthier? I hope so.
Are you ready to get healthy?
