Workout Recap of the Past Couple Weeks

Well, I obviously took a little fall off the blogging wagon for a couple weeks but I am thrilled to report that I did not fall off the workout wagon! Last week we had Ben's family in from Texas for an extra long weekend and even amidst the prep for that and during their visit I managed to still get the workouts in.

I am still following the Revolt Now Fitness workout program and am still loving it. It is quick, intense and I am beginning to see and feel the results. With every workout, now, it seems as though I can tell I am just a bit stronger and have just a bit more stamina.

The other thing I am enjoying is the Facebook feed. Nichole posted the other day that she had listened to some feedback and would be now recording three different levels of workouts for different fitness levels. I think it is so amazing how much time and effort she is putting in to make these results attainable.

I was thinking about the concept of "getting in shape" the other day. I used to want to be toned and skinny and "look good in a bathing suit," -- I mean, yes I still would like all those things -- but I have realized they aren't at the top of my priority list anymore. I have a much different schedule than I used to have and have very limited time to workout. It is nice to be able to carve out just 40 minutes a day for a workout, feel good afterwards and supplement that with healthy eating. There are so many fads out there that promise certain results in a certain amount of time but when I look back at all the workouts I have enjoyed it really just comes down to this: workout, eat healthy and you will get the results. I realize we all have different body types and some obviously see results sooner than later but to me all I care about right now is feeling good. After these workouts I am left feeling energized and like I have actually accomplished something.

At the end of the day I am trying to be healthy for my family and for myself. I guess if some toned triceps come along the way that would be fine too. ;)

Well said! Being healthy is the most important thing...and if being toned and looking good comes from that, great! Although I sure do with that my abs got a little harder with every bite of broccoli.
