Feeling the Burn.

I forgot to share this super exciting news with you all last week!!
I don't know how considering it's all over my
twitter and instagram,
but I'll share anyway.

 Monday, I was talking about
Signing back up for the gym. 
My amazing husband drove me there and
Is paying for me to go!!!!
He knows how important it is for me 
So i am super excited about being able to go to the gym again.
Theres a bunch in the areas I will be in,
It is the perfect situation!!!

Over the course of the week,
I went every day and changed my workouts every day.
I started back up with Couch 2 5K
which has an amazing app and I highly recommend for
those couch potatoes who wanna run like me.
I worked out my legs one day, arms the next, midsection the next.
And then started back with legs.

Couch 2 5K is 3 times a week, every other day. 
When I'm not training for that,
I go onto the elliptical and do a couple miles on that
in the cardio cinema
Yes you heard me right- a cinema.
It is a darkened room (like a theater) with
all cardio equiptment in it. 
They play a movie and you workout.
It is amazing and the best idea ever.
I don't even feel the sweat or like I'm working out.
I do keep one ear bud in because I like the music,
and because Couch 2 5K tells me when to walk/run.
Day 1
Getting back into the gym was slightly nerve racking,
but more exciting than anything.
And the first week I was definitely feeling the burn.
I still am, 
but I kept going.
I love feeling the burn,
it makes me feel like I'm doing something right.
I also can't beileve how out of shape I am.
It was even hard to run for 1 minute,
1 freakin minute!!! 
Day 2- workin out the guns

But this is the start of something great!
I healthier and stronger me.
One that isn't embarassed by my stomach,
arms that keep waving when I stop,
thighs that rub together so much they can start a bonfire.
I'm not giving up...
Didn't think I'd make it, but pushed through.



  1. I love the Couch 2 5K app!! And I'm so excited for you! I can't wait to see your progress!!!
