I Need a Boost

I have come to the realization that I am a super unhealthy person and no longer feel good about what I see in the mirror without clothes on. 

I grew up with people calling me anorexic, I had the fastest metabolism in high school, and I have been an athlete my whole life so I have never had to work at keeping or staying in shape. It just came natural.

After graduating college, and no longer playing volleyball I have slowly but steadily seen the pounds creep on. My muscle is no longer there and now in it's place is a layer of fat. Yuck! 

Today got me thinking:

Why is buying healthy food so dang expensive?
Why does Dr. Pepper taste far more superior than water?
Why can't I turn down cookies or brownies when CT offers to make them?
Why does a gym membership have to be so expensive?
 Why aren't there enough hours in a day to use that membership? 
Why do I HATE running when it's probably one of the best things for you?

As much as I hate to admit it, I no longer am able to put no effort into my health and fitness. I need to be proactive and really start putting effort into my body. We only get one of them, and we need to take care of it and treat it the best way possible.

Like Nike says: Just Do It. 

Since we no longer have our gym membership, I'm going to need to improvise. Thankfully we have some dumbbells at home as well as the p90x videos and pinterest. I have stumbled across some great at home workouts from there. Hopefully those will be enough to get me jump started on this change of lifestyle. 

Check out some workouts I came across via Pinterest:

These are quick workouts that don't need a lot of fancy equipment.
I think I should be able to manage. 

What motivates you? 
What are your favorite at home workouts?


  1. I know exactly how you feel! I used to be an active swimmer some years ago and I was always quite skinny. Now I feel like a couch potato so I've taken swimming back up! Good luck with getting back in shape!

  2. I love this workout:


    The first couple days after I started these I was SO sore! And you can do it while watching TV :)
