Fitness Fridays: Back at It

Comments 6 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Unfortunately the fitness room advertised by our hotel in Kansas City was invisible or at least it must have been tucked away in a dungeon somewhere because I couldn’t find it. After a week of BBQ meats, enchiladas, tortillas, and whatever breakfast sandwiches we could find at 11am, I thought I was going to have a rough time at the gym this morning. Luckily, I found my stride pretty quickly and I think I’m almost back on track.

I think some of my momentum came from my new workout gear that I got at Target. A super cute tennis-style skirt (with mini shorts built-in underneath), a new bright blue sports bra and a great Champion top. Before I was pretty much just piecing together an outfit and although that seems like one of the least important things when it comes to physical health – believe it or not it has boosted my confidence a little.

I have found that my heart rate is no longer skyrocketing as soon as I start any cardio program, I’m pushing myself more, and I’m more willing to get out of bed at 5:45 am with minimal nudges and shoves from John.

We’re only about a month in so far but I’m looking forward to further detoxing myself from the culinary events of last week (although they were spectacularly delicious) and continuing on with my training.

Disclosure: In an effort to lead a more healthy lifestyle, John and I have teamed up with Fitness World who will be sponsoring our workouts and nutritional plans for the next 12 months.

    Considering I hardly sleep anymore, I should start a 5:45am workout program too.

    Good for you guys! And that outfit is super cute! If you ever want to train (gym, cycle, etc)let me know. I was a personal trainer in a past life. True story. Plus then I can hang out with you again 🙂

    Absolutely, the skirts can be motivation on the hardest and darkest day to drag yourself there – though I haven’t been inside a gym in ages and didn’t know the skirt made it in there. I love double-spaghetti strap tank tops (from J76) with my skirt to look completely inappropriate and therefore ready to go for coffee and brunch afterwards. 😀
