Since starting my newest stage in life, I've realized that some of us really have to work at it to keep in shape. I've started a new job where I pretty much sit on my butt for 40+ hours a week as compared to the constant running/walking of my serving job back home. I just feel like there's not enough hours in the day-- unless I make a change & start focusing on what's important -- & that's keeping myself at a healthy weight.
So here is my account of my exercise endeavors :)

This is really when my serious workout plan started. After my triathlon in June 2010, I really slacked off with working out and then proceeded to bruise my menisucus (TWICE) while playing soccer in August. So after 8 weeks of recouperating from that the plan started!
Weekly Workout: M-W-F 20 min eliptical warmup.. 3 arm exercises (beginning with 5 lbs), dead lifts (beginning with 10 lbs), ab ball crunches with 8 lb weight [REPEAT circuit 3x]
[trying to find a workout I enjoy is not as easy as it sounds]
- Begin Couch to 5k run on October 19th on Tuesdays & Thursdays.
