Weekly Workouts: May 4, 2015

Well hello there! How have you been since we last spoke? It has been far too long since my last blog post but I really needed some time to deal with everything that was going on with my health and to handle a crazy work schedule. For the first time in what feels like forever, I actually feel normal and I think I am ready to start oversharing my life again. When my health issues started back in December, I stopped feeling like myself and I slipped in a mental funk. I focused on trying to “out run” and ignore my health problems. It didn’t seem to work at all and I think I ended up dwelling on everything. It wasn’t until two weeks after my procedure at the beginning of April that I started feeling like me again. Pete suggested that I have been mildly depressed and I am inclined to agree with him. He has been absolutely amazing through this whole ordeal and I am so glad he is by my side.

Now that I getting back to normal, I am ready to get my butt in gear and really work on my health and fitness. First things first … I AM GETTING MARRIED IN LESS THAN 19 MONTHS!!! While I am really excited to be making decisions and planning the details, one thing I am not ready to do is try on dresses. I really want to in better physical shape before I take on that aspect of the planning. Namely, I want to work on my upper body strength so that I can pull off the strapless look without any unwanted flab. I really liked the results that I saw when I followed the LiveFit Trainer program last year so I decided to start following again. I figured out that I can finish the whole program before it is time to start training for next year’s Dopey Challenge.
