Gals and guys, let it be known that I feel pretty damn good about the progress I’ve made so far in my fitness journey. 71 lbs is nothing to sneeze at. But over the past couple of months, I’ve been thinking a lot about what the last 20-ish pounds means to me. I mean, I know I want to lose it, but I want to take the focus off the pounds and put it more on what my body can do.
See, for me, I think it’s now about what my body can do rather than how many pounds I can lose. I want to put the focus on total fitness and consistently changing the game. One of the worst things that can happen to a gal is boredom. I want to experience what my body is capable of moving forward. I want to challenge myself and see what I can do.
The other thing I’ve realized (and I’ve spoken about in the SexyBack Diaries a while ago) is that I want to get a little foxy sass back in my life. I want to feel very alive in my body again. I want to feel sexy, alluring. In other words, I want a lot more hottie than hot mess in my lifestyle. It’s time to get foxy and fit.
I’m not forsaking my current (and beloved) exercise regimen at all. Just trying some new and fantastic classes and fitness opportunities and, well, with multiple locations around the city and the US, I’ve got plenty of opportunities to explore the possibilities of losing the rest of the weight, training for the New York Marathon (YEP, I’m going to run it in 2013) and to explore my exercise possibilities. I’ll chronicle my journey and exercise diary here on the site so you can follow along every Wednesday, which is now Wellness Wednesdays. So, check back and let’s chat.
Because being completely within a capable, healthy body is a personal goal of mine. And if I find my foxy while I’m in there, that’s even better.
Project #foxyfitness is on, folks. Let the games begin.
