You have to be intentional, at least that’s what I’m telling myself. It all came up through an online meeting I had with my team. Work colleague of mine said she needed someone to workout with; asked if I would be her accountability partner and like the supportive person I am, I accepted. I told her, that I had a few gears I had ordered on Amazon until they’re here we wouldn’t start maybe light stuff.
The items got here yesterday (6/30) well part of my order. A jump rope and a Gallon water bottle. The one with the motivational prompts. I figured if I’m going to do this I needed the push.
I started drinking water later than expected however by the end of the night I made it to the mark 9pm. Didn’t finish. My toddler and mom cheered me on during the course of the day. I figured that’s a pretty good start. I haven’t done as much jumping. I don’t know if I even remember how to use a jump rope. My toddler 🙄 , with the can do attitude “you can do it mommy” 😩just what I needed my own personal cheerleader🥺. I only got three jumps in😆🎉. I will try to get more jumps in today.
Yeah, Dee has started her fitness journey. I don’t know what the heck I’m doing but I figured I’d start somewhere. I have a partner whom I’ll be checking in daily as well as my toddler to keep me on my toes. I haven’t weighed in I really don’t want to feel pressured by it I have an idea of what that number is and will use that as a mental note.
Why now? I’d say why not. Covid gains are obvious and this is something that I’ve started and stopped over the period of lock down. I’m hoping eventually little habits like eating snacks,sweets will stop. I don’t want to go on a full diet cleanse in one go. I want to take it one step at a time until that taste or yearning is gone.
Dee is embarking on a fitness journey. I want to document as much as I can and I’m excited to see results. For now I really want to get to a healthier weight be fit and stick to it. Trying to avoid any ailment that comes with neglecting ones health at least the ones I can avoid.
No pictures yet, they’re coming.
It’s good to check in with you guys I hope you’re all safe.
Until next time,
