A casual Friday look. See? I still get dressed up in a blouse and heels. It’s hard for me to be casual. Haha.
And I’m just going to go ahead and put this out there now. I’ve talked about working out before. Now, I don’t run (I HATE it with a passion) but I weight lift via a Group Power. I’ve been at it for almost a year and am amazed at how toned my arms, legs and back have gotten. My pants are getting tight around my thighs but I haven’t gained ANY weight, which means I’m shaping up and rounding out. Whoo hoo. I’m really excited about that, but I’m afraid it means buying new pants eventually. Now, while I get the eyerolls from people who are like, WHY are you working out, you’re already tiny? I just tell them, I’m not working out to lose weight, I want to look strong, not just little. It’s completely different. So the one thing that I wasn’t doing when I started last year was to change my diet. The biggest part of toning up your body. I’ve made that resolution this year. Baby steps, right? Last year, it was to work out, which I’ve never done for more than two weeks. I’ve been at it for almost a year. *pats self on back* This year, I’m changing my diet. What helps is that I have a fabulous supportive husband who understands my goals – looks great himself – and is willing to help me. Love him so much! We’ve been eating better together and he gives the best advice about eating right. And if he doesn’t know, he does all the research for me. 🙂
Here are my inspiration images via Pinterest that are going to keep me focused on my goal.
I hesitated putting this goal of mine on here because it makes it even MORE real for me, but I’m going to hold myself accountable. Plus, my blog has done some amazing things for me. Like they say, if you want it to happen, write it down. But in this day and age, we blog about it. 🙂
