I know that I can do anything if I put my mind to it. I remember what it felt like when I was active and healthy, and I want to feel like that again!

As you all know already, one of my big resolutions is to get my butt in shape (pun intended). Noel (High Heeled Mama) has started the "Fitness Friday" link-up, and I intend in delivering awesome content about how my fitness lifestyle is going and such.
This week has been a new adjustment to working out. I haven't gone to the gym but I've done so e at-home circuit training.
I have always been active in some way growing up. I have played a gazillion different sports in my life: dance, tee ball, softball, gymnastics, swimming, cheerleading, figure skating, and basketball. I have unfortunately become LESS active the older I have gotten. I lived in NYC and walked everywhere, which was nice, but I didn't really workout during college. I never got into that sort of habit. So, naturally when I graduated, I wasn't very active. Add a toxic relationship to the mix, and I became a bit of a couch potato.
My goal is to no longer be a couch potato. I don't have any lofty goals yet like running a 5k or something. My ultimate goal is just to get healthy and lose weight.
I have had a gym membership for a while, but fell out of practice going. I enjoy kickboxing, spin class, yoga, zumba, and even weight lifting. I look forward to getting back into it.
My goal for this coming week is to get to the gym at least 3 times. Completely doable. I know that I have to push myself and keep my eyes on the prize.
