Finding Fitness Fridays.

Aren't you excited? If you're already following me on Instagram or friends with me on Facebook then you know I'm on a journey right now.

I used to post about fitness regularly on my blog. I tried to focus on my positives and these motivating and inspiring images I found on Pinterest. But y'all can see how well that turned out. I pretty much stopped.

But right now? There's no stopping me.

Or I'm trying to ensure that there's nothing stopping me.

So I'm posting after my walk every day.

And I'm chronicling (word?) my meals - or some of them - on Instagram.

See, I've been walking for over a week and that's a big deal for me.

Because I don't usually make it that long. If I'm being honest, I usually talk myself out of these sorts of things somehow. I'm usually the one stopping me. But not this time. This time ... well ... this is my favorite image, and I know I've used it before but have no idea where it originated - so I hate that I'm using it again, but I kind of need to - because it fits here.

So - even if I suck? I'm doing it. And guess what? I'm not really suckky at it. Not truly.

I'm also on Day 4 of the Whole30 program, and I don't plan on quitting any time soon. September is my month. And I'll probably be telling you a little bit about each week on Fridays. It's likely not the most exciting thing you've ever read, but I think you'll still enjoy some of it. At least I hope you will.

I started creating these cute collages on my phone and now do one every day. They kind of inspire me and remind me that I CAN do this and I should keep on moving.

I didn't start right away, because my walking started on August 26th, I think, but this is from the 28th. And the rest of them follow chronologically.

And there you have it. My week (give or take) of workouts. I'll skip sharing my Whole30 meals for right now. Otherwise you'll be tuning out immediately. If you haven't already. Because - I know - it can be a little bit eh to watch someone else work their butt off - or try to. But thanks for sticking with me, I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend!

  1. I love you. You are awesome. I'm going to the airport later today. I should bring you some iced chai. Without all the nasty syrup.

  2. This is great. I'm right there with you. I've let some pounds slip on me and my goal is to exercise and get back down. Best wishes. Leigh

  3. I love you. And no, I don't hate reading about your journey. As someone who also usually talks herself out of things, you're a great reminder that I can (and should, dammit) keep on keeping on. Cuz you're real. I don't need Barbie telling me to get off my booty and do my stretches, nope. Sorry. But you? Laying it all out there? Being 50 shades of honest? Yeah, I can follow along with you and get my booty in gear.
    So you do you and I'll do me and we'll keep each other smiling, k?

  4. Congrats on starting the whole 30. I've been wanting to try it but with all the events I have going on right now, I know it would be impossible to stay on it.
