Fitness Journey Update 2017

 Happy Thursday Friends!
I was originally planning on writing and publishing this post three days ago, but life got in the way.
I would usually stress out about not getting a post out when I said I would, but this year I am trying really hard to slow down and just accept that I am a busy mom of three and sometimes I'm going to fall behind.
I got hit with a wicked nasty cold and chose to go to bed early and take care of myself instead of staying up late to write this post.
This year is all about taking care of myself so I can be a better mom and wife.
I shared a post on instagram with you guys a couple of weeks back and since then a lot of you have been asking how my fitness journey is going.
I had so many DMs and emails asking about the BBG program I was doing.
 I was so excited to take you along the journey with me, but unfortunately, I've already fallen off the program. 
This program requires that you dedicate a small amount of  time every single day to the plan and unfortunately this just isn't something I can commit to at this time.
I still think the program is absolutely incredible and hope to try it again when life isn't so busy.
I am still making it a priority to take care of myself and go to the gym at least twice a week as well as making healthier meal choices.
I've learned a few things about myself over the last few weeks.
One
 I am not interested in cutting out comfort foods. 
Yes, I need to cut back but I am not willing to eliminate them completely from my diet. 
Everything in moderation, right?

Two
I LOVE working out and going to the gym. 
It only took me 28 years to get into the routine of going to the gym haha
 but I've noticed that since I started going I'm in a completely different state of mind.
I'm happier, have more energy and I feel stronger.
 I also love the atmosphere of the gym. 
Seeing other people working towards their goals is just SO motivating.

Three
I'm not interested in counting calories.
It's just takes the joy out of eating.
I figure as long as I am putting healthy foods like green veggies, chicken etc. on my plate there is no need to count the calories.


Are you on a Fitness Journey?

  1. I think #3 is so important! As long as you are eating nutritious foods I don't think you should restrict yourself to how much you can eat. I see a lot of people attempt to eat healthy by cutting calories to the extreme and it just isn't sustainable. Good luck with your journey!

  2. I love the everything in moderation motto. I always think that one of the reasons my trying to stay healthy is because I always try to go cold turkey and eliminate some foods I love.

  4. I used to go to the gym regularly until I got pregnant. My baby is 6 months old now. I miss going to the gym! Thanks for the gentle nudge.

  6. I recently began my fitness journey (just stated week 5) going to a Boot Camp. I go 5 days a week on my lunch and it includes meal plans and a personal trainer. The food is all food I regularly eat and no calorie counting just limiting certain foods. And one cheat meal per week that I can eat anything! Way to go Kelsey on your fitness journey!
