Commit To Fit Update

Hey strangers. I'm finally back from the Thanksgiving long weekend AND our Palm Springs event. PHEW. What a couple weeks it was. I'll be back later this week with an event recap.. it went really well!

But today we are back on the fitness topic. My company started a wellness program last month and my personal trainer friend, Rennay, launched a Commit To Fit challenge this month. So, fitness has been on the mind everywhere I go. Which is good!

However, Thanksgiving in West Virginia, and then a week at our event left little room to work out. And little room to eat healthy, to be honest.

Last week was the first week of the challenge and since I had no time to work out (we literally work from about 7am to 10pm), we decided my goal could be to walk 15,000 steps four times that week. 15k was a random number we came up with and it turns out it was a bit high for my everyday at the event. BUT, I did beat it on our busiest day!

Now that I'm back to the real world, my goal this week is three days in the gym for an hour each. I started off this morning.

I talked before about how I found a way for morning work outs to work for me and it's been great. It's not always easy to be consistent, but honestly, what work out routine is easy?

Also, my department at work start doing walks at 10am and 2pm each day (when we can). There is a trail right by our office so we do 1 mile in the morning and 1 mile in the afternoon.

It's really nice to get a breath of fresh air and get our bodies moving when we are sitting at desks most of the day. And it's been giving our team time to catch up on what each other is doing and collaborate a bit more.. always helpful!

I'm trying to make as much progress before Jan 1 as I can! Now that things have calmed down I have three weeks to really focus! Which includes food. Going to make an effort to be more aware of what I'm eating and make healthier choices as well. 

I want to roll into the new year with momentum and not starting from scratch. Who's with me??
