Morning Meanderings… Vi-Shape. Hmmm…. Here We Go.
Good morning. What’s up?
Two, three… (when was it?) years ago when I started the Morning Meanderings there was a little bonus to it that hasn’t been around for a while. That “bonus” was I would talk about my work outs, what I was doing to keep fit and where I fell short. It was pretty much a part of the meandering culture…
Many things. Life for one. And about a year ago when we put our dog down I kind of hit a funk throughout most of last winter. I lost my desire to work out and keep up the healthy patterns I had once as part of my life. I didn’t want to do anything. I was content with just going to work and going home and lying low. It has been a real struggle to break these poor habits. Throughout the spring through fall of this year I did a lot of bike rides but hardly any roller blading which I love, and I haven’t been to the gym since June.
Last week while spending time with both of my sons in Florida and Georgia I had a little wake up call. College son does these shakes that his roommate got him hooked on, Vi-Shape. Navy son works out 5 times a week and keeps track of calories using My Fitness pal – which is awesome and easy and free. It was weird being on vacation with two guys who are both watching what they eat.
HELLO….. It’s called vacation…..
Anyhoo…. I have always believed that each of us know our bodies and what feels like the right weight and what does not for us. You can still be small built like myself and not feel you are at a healthy weight. That is where I am at….
and I am ready to fix it.
I mean, I am.
I signed up to do the Vi-Shape (which my son swears by) and my first shipment came in yesterdays UPS delivery. It’s two shakes a day and a healthy dinner. I am going to combine that with using My Fitness Pal again because it really is an eye opener as to how many calories you are eating in a day as well as what kind of calories. I am also going to get my hiney back to the gym.
If you have looked at my friend Reagan’s posts lately at Get Fit 2.0 she can be a real kick in the pants too. I am so proud of her and she has inspired me big time to get my fitness blog back up and running as well.
My goals: Back to feeling good and looking good by my birthday in February.
So there you have it… that’s me – a new beginning that I am excited to jump on. Tomorrow I will let you know how day one has gone and maybe (maybe…) have a post on Kickin’ It, my neglected work out blog.
Tonight book club at my house and the review of Language of Flowers. I think its going to be great!
