First Offical Workout of 2013...

I’m officially starting my fitness plan of 2013. 

I’ve only come up with a few different exercise routines so far, but I have a few more planned to put on paper for myself.  I’ve come to realize that I need a clear precise plan in front of me before I start anything.  If I don’t do this then I seem to always get distracted and not do what I originally wanted.

So for today, this is what I did.  I literally just jogged in a circle in my basement for the “RUN” portions.  I don’t have a treadmill or an elliptical machine or I would have used that.  So, with my piece of paper, my phone with a timer on it, and my Ipad with a playlist, I was set to go… this is what I started with.

ü  10 to 12 PUSHUPS

ü  40 sec RUN

ü  20 SQUATS

ü  40 sec RUN

ü  40 sec PLANKS

This is what I looked like after that… I know scary right!!??

After that I wanted to incorporate a bit of core work with 2lbs dumbbells.  I sort of just did a couple different reps of side bends, arm holds, core twists…

I then did a cool down, and took a shower J

Let me know what some of your favorite after workout routine is?

A few bits….
·         It felt great to be moving again
·         4 years ago, I quit smoking cigarettes, my lungs still hurt from it L
·         My dog followed me thinking I was playing a game while I jogged around my basement
·         I almost threw up twice during this workout... sigh
·         Be sure to have a towel on hand to wipe sweat off your head… I forgot mine
·         An hour after this work out, I feel more energized J

Life Clean Up… 2013

WOW… I’ve just realized how long it’s been since I’ve even thought about my blog!!  It’s been totally neglected and ignored over the last several months!  However, I’m hoping to change that. 

The year of 2013 is going to be the start of my “Life Clean Up…” what is that? You ask…??? 

Well, let me explain.  I am one of the most disorganized people I know and it’s starting to drive me CRAZY!!  On top of that, I’m a perpetual procrastinator!  I can talk myself out of doing anything (like cleaning or exercising), or talk myself into doing something lazy (like taking a nap, or eating just 3 more cookies, or watching YouTube for 6 hours in a row… ugh…)

SO, long story short. I’m making a plan for myself and WILL FORCE myself to stick to it.  I have so many goals for this year, and the years to come.  I want to get healthier, become more organized, be the happier more out going person I used to be.  I’ve been neglecting myself for a few years with many excuses in tow.  (I’m sure at some point I will go into detail about these excuses ;-)

  • The first plan of attack to get my life in order is to organize my house… I’ve been ADDICTED to Pinterest lately.  I’ve been pinning away like crazy! (follow me Spacedoll21) I’m mostly obsessed with the Home Decor and DIY & Crafts categories.  The Home Décor has many ideas for organization and cleaning.  I LOVE IT!  Baskets and binders are going to become my best friends J  I’m in the process of constructing a binder that will help me organize my plans and keep me on track.  Let me know if you would like to see the finished product.

DON’T FRET!!  I‘ll still be posting nail andbeauty posts as well as documenting my journey of “Life Clean UP…” (that is such a stupid name, but it’s the only thing that keeps coming to mind… lol)
