exercise motivation.. just DO IT!

Can you believe it’s MAY already!? Looking through my FIRM photos section I see it’s been quite a while since I updated (since Nov. 2006!) so I have plans to take some new FIRM photos very soon! I am training 5 days a week now with the weekends off. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to this summer! Last year I didn’t swim because I just didn’t feel comfortable, but this summer I plan to get out there and swim with every one else!


I set a mini personal goal to get to a size 14 dress by my wedding anniversary (September 2), I wanted to fit into a pair of 16s by the end of May.. I tried them on about a week ago and they lack a good 2″ at least from meeting. I wish I could lose a little faster but I also know it isn’t healthy and since I am trying to avoid the loose skin factor, I know I should be happy that I am losing at all.


I bought the new Firm Bootcamp: Maximum Calorie Burn w/ Alison.. I can’t even begin to tell you how much that video kicked my butt! It’s really fast paced so its over just as soon as you begin (or at least thats how it felt to me!), and for a girl who never sweats, I was sweating like a man!! I was able to do the advanced jumps and hops, which thrilled me! My knee has NEVER let me do that before!! The newer Firm videos do not use the TransFIRMer, so if you don’t have the system and want to try it, this is a great work out to begin with! I am also noticing I can get deeper in dips and lunges and my form looks much better on the tall box and soon I might be able to swap out for medium weights on the climbs. My lower body isn’t feeling much resistance from the 15lb weights anymore, so I might need to up those soon also.


I hope you all are having as much fun this spring as I am!! Get out there and go for a walk with your loved ones!! We get far too little time to spend with them… take 15mins out of your busy day for some quality time. Its healthy for you and for them!
