Fitness Friday: A Laid Back Approach

I was doing pretty good with Fitness Fridays for about about six weeks, but I totally dropped the ball. The last one was back in August!

In case you’re interested, the other topics I covered were as follows:

I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t worked out all week. Then why bring back the Fitness Friday now, Colleen?

Well, I take that back. I went to Body Pump on Monday morning, but I ducked out early, as a migraine from the previous night hadn’t fully subsided. *Note: Weight lifting does NOT help a head ache.

 The thing is, it’s been great. I’ve slept in until 6:45 (!!) all week, and I haven’t felt one bit of remorse or guilt. Like, none. (If you’ve been reading for a while, you know how huge that is for me.)

Actually, over the past few weeks, my approach to fitness has been pretty laid back. I’ll go to about four classes a week, and on weekend mornings, my workout consists of an hour long walk with Cory and Campbell. Those walks are fantastic, and I truly look forward to them.

Brown’s Island is our favorite #rva :)

I applaud the bloggers who I follow who go balls to the wall all day, every day. I appreciate the lovely ladies who are constantly tweaking their diet to be as clean and paleo/vegan/vegetarian/no carbs as possible. In a way, I feel that they’re better than me. More dedicated, if you will.

Because, let’s be honest: I eat meat, cheese, sugar (real and fake), carbs, and foods that come out of boxes and bags.

aaaaaaaaa

If a fall into the comparison trap, those people make me feel a little bad about myself. How stupid, right?!

But then I remember, that as long as what I’m doing works for me, that’s all that really matters. And that’s the message I want you to remember for yourself, too. :)

Who knows, maybe next week I’ll be tweeting pictures of a treadmill after I crush a 5 mile run (highly unlikely) or maybe I’ll make it to the gym 6 days out of the week (again – unlikely),

aaaaa

but all I know is that I’ll be doing what feels good and right. I’m not forcing or guilting myself into doing anything.

That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it! ;) Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! We’re off to do the final walk through of the house!
