There comes a point when you realize you’ve let yourself go. I think it was a few weeks ago that we both agreed we really needed to keep working harder on getting into better shape. We have nothing stopping us now, and we both agree that before we even think about kids, we need to be happy with our bodies.
We’ve been really good at taking hikes & walks during the week … J is running again, prepping for another 1/2 marathon this May. One of the coolest apps we’ve been using lately is Run Keeper. We can easily keep track of our walks/hikes/runs, and Run Keeper gives us reports to help keep track of our activities.
Since we’re getting a handle on the whole ‘moving’ thing, our next focus is our diet. Trying to eat all (or most) of our meals at home has been a challenge, but doing a weekly meal plan is really helping. We aren’t focused as much on eating carrots & cucumbers only … Just more on eating at home. Preparing all of our food from whole ingredients, and trying to have some portion control.
Basically, we’re really trying. It’s hard. It’s hard to find the time to exercise. It’s hard to have discipline while making food choices. It’s hard to work hard and feel like you’re not making a difference. It’s hard knowing some people don’t have to try at all. But, with all of that said … it’s worth trying to make a difference in our lives. Plus, who doesn’t want to look better naked?! ;)
