Without regular exercise I wouldn’t be able to fit into my jeans everyday with all of this baking I have going on here. Not only is exercise just good for me, but it’s a tremendous stress reliever and allows me to spend quality time with my family.
Our exercise of choice is always running. It’s not often that I buy fitness clothes, but when I do, I always seem to exercise better. I guess it’s that little voice in my head saying, ‘Oh yeah, you look cute. You go girl!’.
Whatever gets you out there and exercising right?
I know I’ve said it before, but I use a calendar to keep track of my exercising. I use Google Calendar and have a specific calendar (that I choose to be blue if you’re familiar with Google Calendar) just for exercise. I write down exactly what I did for exercise that day (setting it as ‘all day’ instead of a time so it shows up boldy on my calendar). That way, two things happen:
- I can look back and say, ‘Wow, I rock. I did a really good job this week! Look at all of that blue!’.
- Or, I can look at the calendar and say, ‘Yikes, there’s not enough blue. It’s been way too long since I exercised. It’s time to get out there’.
That way, I’m keeping myself on track and that blue calendar motivates me along the way.
Anyway. I know I’m not the skinniest girl in the world and I’ve always gotten down on myself about my body (stupid short waist…my ribs literally sit inside of my hips). But, I feel awesome, especially since having Liam. I’m now down to a lower weight that I was before I had the baby! 😀
I’d love to hear how you stay motivated to exercise!
Speaking of exercise, don’t you want to win this awesome Albion Fit Go Long Crew with thumb holes, like mine? I picked it out because it was my favorite thing in their store.
The shirt is soft and breathable and the thumb holes make me feel cool and are a great touch for those chilly days. And you should see all of the other workout clothing that Albion Fit has. Can I have one of each, please?
