So it’s time for me to face the music and dance. My Elliana is one and I practically weigh the same as just moments after her birth. Sigh. So how am I fixing this? Well I am attending a super awesome FREE, kick-your-butt exercise class at the Element here in Bismarck. And I am training to WALK the HALF of the Fargo Marathon in May, which means I now have a Y membership. And, now that I am telling all of you, it’s official–no excuses. 🙂
One tool that is helping me in the area of walking is the Nike+ app I downloaded for free on my iphone. It has GPS, so it tracks how far I walk, whether it’s indoors at a track or outdoors. It also puts a status on Facebook for me when I start a workout and allows my friends to “like” or comment. And when they do, I hear cheers and applause, which actually is pretty awesome. This morning I had four different cheers that came through for me that definitely added motivation to keep my pace and not quit early. You can check out the app here.
