Hey everyone! Been busy here at FNHM…but seriously, who isn’t?
I keep saying after the holidays things will die down & we can “regroup”, but that never seems to happen as I look at my old school paper planner & see the calendar filling up!
Some Fit N’ Healthy news… My PIC, Kim and I joined Planet Fitness in December! We were so tired of making excuses not to work out during lunch because of the weather…ice, rain, you name it that we discovered a Planet Fitness not far from our job. Being lunch time workouts work out to be best for the both of us we joined.
I’ve been averaging 3 – 4 times a week and eventually would like to throw in a weekend workout, but for now the weekends have me so busy I’m more than happy with the amount of activity I have going on. I’m finding myself alternating c25k and the express workout. It’s a great beginning balance for me right now & helps maximize my time in the gym being it’s a limited lunch time work out. I’ve even been taking advantage of the black card membership by using the hydromassage bed, massage chairs & red light therapy. Why not?!
Yes, you heard me say c25k… Love the program and it’s giving me the running bug I missed. I’ve said many times it’s my therapy because it really is. The endorphin rush is unbeatable. Today I’m doing week 5 day 1. It ups the runs from 5 minutes to 8 minutes. So I’m both excited and nervous. I’m excited for the push, but nervous that I won’t be able to do it. Silly, right? What’s there to be nervous about? It’s not like I’m going to be ridiculed or humiliated. There are times I think of how I used to run an entire 5k without missing a beat. I keep trying to say – this is a new chapter in my life. I’ll get there again, I know I will. I’m already planning for my first 5k. Now if only I can just commit and book the damn thing!
How’s everyone doing with fitness in the new year? Anyone running any fun 5ks?
