PINTEREST PIPE DREAMS - WORKING OUT

Credit: PopSugar
You know, I have many, MANY Pinterest boards (you can see the obsession here in all of its glory) that I pin to every day in hopes that I'll actually make or do those things 'one day' (I'm awesome at dreaming!).  Yet, I've made no plans to get to them - EVER.  I figure 'one day' will magically happen when I'm so inspired and it will automatically incorporate its amazingness with perfect transition into my life and it will all just appear on my newly skinny body, in my enlightened mind, in my beautiful home, with my awesome blog and gorgeous photography with no plan of action or work on my behalf.  Unfortunately, we all know how that's going to turn out - it'd be a Super Sized Pipe Dream.

So I'm going to change that. 

I'm going to do these things. Not all at the same time because well, that's just unrealistic - I have a life and a budget. But I can let's say pick out one or two items a week and complete them. So I want to start with my 'w o r k o u t' board. I'll pick a post or two a week and do them for five days straight and the following week, switch it up. I'm so damn lazy and it's showing all over my body and my mind.  I'm wasting my life.  It's time to make the change!  Every week, I'll post what I did and how I felt about it.  That way I can commit to you all because I don't want to let you down, and you can join along with me if you want.  Because let's face it, we're not getting any younger and our asses (or belly or arms) are not getting any skinnier.  I want to feel good and I'm the only who can do anything about it.


Now, I want to be clear about one thing, I'm not necessarily doing this because I want to be 'skinny', my body shape doesn't really bother me that much despite knowing I'm a bit unhealthy right now (I'm in denial that I'm 'bigger'), but I realize that working out and being fit is imperative to being healthy in both body and spirit. I haven't been feeling so awesome lately, I'm lacking motivation to do anything that I'm not nearly forced into, and I think it has to do with me being so damn lazy and tired, i.e. not working out.  So this is my way to change that.  If I'm not going to make the effort now, it's just going to get more and more difficult as time goes on.  So, the first post that I want to tackle is a full body circuit workout plus with either walking or swimming in the morning.  So, on that note, I'll follow up with you all next week with the results of me trying to at least start this madness!  Wish me luck!

Ok….I'll be waiting for the updates! Good luck!

I just completed the 5min plank in 30 days challenge. Now I am working on the 100 continuous push-ups challenge. Planking is good, if you want to attempt that one. I am trying to continue adding a new exercise to a regular routine until I have about four or five of these exercises.
