Biweek? {#aHeartFitFriday}

I love these weekly posts.  I love exchanging words of encouragement and hearing about your journeys.  Unfortunately, I don’t have much to say this week.

Nothing’s wrong.  I just need to figure out where to go from here.  I’m no longer trying to lose weight, just trying to improve my fitness level and I need to find a new way to track that.  I need new goals and a new “adventure”.

I really thought the CharityMiles challenge would be that, but it’s not working.

Let me tell you why:

I’m already in a routine of going to the gym which doesn’t depend on the weather.  Yes, I could run outside rain or shine with the stroller rain cover, but there’s also the consideration that I have a double jogger and three days a week, Dylan’s at school during my work-out time.  Who really wants to walk or run with a double jogger and one kid?  I’d spend the whole workout compensating for the empty side and stopping every time the stroller went off the sidewalk into the grass.

I have a gym membership with 2 hours of childcare, awesome group fitness options, a separate yoga studio, sparkling clean facilities, and locker rooms that make you feel like you’re at a spa rather than a gym.  I’m not trying to brag, just sharing some love for Cando in case you live in NJ and are in the market for a new gym.  We’re committed to a membership until the summer (and we’ll probably renew) and I love the convenience.

As for the new adventure:

I have some ideas, but I’m going to explore my options and report back next week.

How about your fitness goals?  Are you enjoying time outside with the spring weather (assuming you don’t live where the snow fell this week)?  Do you have a gym membership and, if so, a favorite group fitness class?

I’m not doing the linkup this week, but it’ll be back next week.

  1. I couldn't link up this week anyway. I have NO idea if I've gained, lost, or maintained this week since I've been spending day and night in the hospital with my husband. He's better, so that's good.

    When we finally make our goals, sometimes it's hard to figure out new ones. But there's always something to strive for. Congrats on your success!
