Fitness Kick-Start Check-In ~ Week 1

The Legacy of Home

A friend, Sharon ~ over at The Legacy of Home, has decided to begin a four week fitness program to run the month of December called “Kick Start Fitness” and I have decided to join her and eight other bloggers in this endeavor. We will chart our progress each week and share our accomplishments each Friday.

Well, I didn’t do very good this last week. My main problems = STRESS and LACK OF SLEEP. Which have been my main too problems for the last year. What I *did* do this week was make sure I got up and MOVED every day. I’ve found it helps me AND THE BOYS (aka less stress for mom) if we all take a break and go outside to run around, move, make noise, etc. Even though I seriously dislike cold weather…this will be part of our daily schedule.

The other thing I did was go talk to someone at a local workout place. I wanted to find out how much it would cost per month. We are seriously financially strapped at the moment but I have been trying to find a part-time job so am pondering the possibility once that happens. Guess we’ll see… Until then, I do have my “Walk Away the Pounds” video – my only “issue” with that is we have hardwood floors and it’s not good on my feet / legs, so am contemplating buying a little something soft to step on while doing my workouts.

Basically, although it wasn’t a very good week eating-wise, it was a successful week in that I got up and moved every day and I am working on a plan of action.

Now…off to see what my fellow ladies on the fitness team posted…make sure to check out how they did too!

    Do you have a ymca near you? They offer scholarships for their memberships, so that may be an option.

    I know things have been stressful, and I’m continuing to pray. (((hugs))) Our mantra can be “just keep moving, just keep moving, just keep moving…” Ya know, Dori (from Finding Nemo) style. 😉

    I agree, it is HARD to move when it is cold! Sleep is a big issue for me too.

    Press on!!!

    Sleep is one of my problems also. I need to work on getting to bed earlier.

    A little bit at a time, getting moving is a good step. I have a lot of trouble with getting enough sleep myself and that’s so important. Blessings to you, I know you’ll persevere. ;0)
