It’s the New Year & I’m Checking In!

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?

    So proud of you guys! I love my lunch time workouts – I get the “resident” rate at a high end tennis club that has all the bells and whistles since my work is in the same town – just started taking advantage of group classes and did my first Zumba class yesterday – loved it!

      I don’t know why I’m so terrified of Zumba! HA! It’s an amazing workout, but I feel like I’ll be fumbling the entire way… I “may” do a 2 hour benefit class on Friday. Wish me luck… (yikes!)
