I Need To Get Fit! No More Procrastinating!

 

get fit

Yes, I need to get fit.  I have a Duran Duran concert in July and class reunion in August.  More than likely I will be going to the DD concert with my friend Paula.  That means we will probably get backstage and I want to look good for my boys.

This would be my first class reunion.  I haven’t seen most of my classmates (outside of Facebook pics)  since the 80s.  I want to look great.

The first step to get fit is getting out! Now that the weather is finally getting better, I plan on doing more walking and maybe some jogging.  I also have dozens of fitness DVDs that have been collecting dust, because most of my workouts have been online.

Years ago I did a different DVD every day challenge.  It was called 30 Day No Repeat. You can see the first week’s schedule here. I’m going to be doing that again.  I will be doing the exact same schedule.

In my recent post I Didn’t Worry About Gaining Weight During My Vacation, I talked about how much walking we did during our vacation.  I experienced a lot of pain in my legs every day.  Recently I started taking Omega-3s to combat that pain.  I have read that Omega-3s are essential for my heart health, but they are also great for reducing inflammation and joint pain.

One of my favorite fitness gurus PJ Wren also included Omega-3 as one of the best vitamins you can take.  Read her post here.

I’m taking flaxseed oil capsules, eating more fish (more sushi)  and adding flaxseed to my food.  I have less leg pain and I don’t get stiff after sitting for a while.  So, I will be keeping Omega-3s in my diet permanently.

The Groundhog was so wrong

This Weather Is Killing My Fitness Motivation

Can you believe it’s April already!  I know it doesn’t feel like it, but it is spring.  We had 6 inches of snow last week in Toronto.  Yes, I know other parts of North America are dealing with the same thing.  That groundhog was so wrong.  I’m not listening to him anymore.  Can I blame him for my lack of fitness motivation?!

This Weather Is Killing My Fitness Motivation
It’s springtime!

This weather is killing my fitness motivation! It’s hard for me to get motivated when the weather is like this, but before you know it, it will be hot and I’ll be regretting my procrastination.

Last week I started to get back on track with some Yoga.  It felt good to do a little something.  If I want to get more toned, I have to start weight training and cardio.  My favorite form of cardio is walking.  I did a lot of that on my vacation and I wrote about it last week.  The post is here.

I want to get outside more now.  My body is craving it.  I did look at the weather forecast for the next couple of weeks and it looks promising.

Fitness motivation

I’m drinking my protein shakes again.  I made a really delicious one with pears, peaches, strawberries and banana.  The protein powder I used is one of my favorites.  You can read a review of it here.  I also love using cashew milk in my smoothies.  It adds a creaminess to it without a lot of calories.  I reviewed one brand of cashew milk here.

I’m just taking it one day at a time.  I have a couple of events I want to look good for.  The first one is the Duran Duran concert in July.  The second one is my high school reunion in August.

Time’s a wastin’!  Let’s get moving!

Is the “spring” weather getting you down?! How are you staying motivated with your fitness routine?!  Please share in the comments section below!
