Today’s post differs a bit from my usual subject material, but is something I thought I would share regardless.
I’ve decided to embark upon a little bit of a personal makeover. It started with the new jeans. And now, (gasp,) I’ve been working out. I’m hell-bent on getting buff for summer and referring to this mission as Operation Beach Bod. I want to be able to wear something tight* and short* come summer.
Oh is it hard. I’ve enlisted the help of a personal trainer as I literally had not lifted weights in over two years. I’ve got balance issues, back problems, and super-tight hamstrings. He’s got me on a strict plan of lifting weights 3 times a week, lots of stretching, and surprisingly – no cardio. Meaning, I am one sore chica.
The thing is… after a week and a half, I already notice a difference. Also, my junk food cravings have totally subsided. I actually craved cottage cheese for breakfast today. True story.
Besides, working out in the AM isn’t all that bad. I’ve had a ton more energy and Equinox is stocked with Kiehl’s – meaning I can slather on copious amounts of Creme de Corps after my shower and not feel guilty.
