New Year, New You

Today my Wii Fit welcomed me back after a 362 day break between workouts. Needless to say, I have gotten a little out of shape over the last year. While I haven’t gained (or lost) any weight, I definitely have gotten a little fluffier.

During my workout today I noticed a couple things I did not like. During a short run I noticed my bum was jiggling up and down which was very uncomfortable haha. The second thing that bothered me was how the lunges I did nearly killed me. After doing 20 lunges per leg I had to sit down and catch my breath. After taking a short break, they were still sore and didn’t want to stand much longer. They were a little shaky and my entire body was exhausted while my mind wanted me to keep going.

So I made some fitness goals for this new year. I want to make my butt stop jumping when I jump, I want to strengthen my lower body so I can do longer work outs, I want to strengthen my back muscles because it’s been sore lately and I’ve been doing a lot more sitting now that I can’t walk to work, and finally I would like to tone my stomach because it’s a little more flabby than I prefer.

Don’t get me wrong, I feel like I still look in shape and you wouldn’t call me unfit by any means. But I want to make my body stronger so it continues to treat me good.

Do you have any fitness goals for the new year? How long do you think I can keep up my exercise routine? Obviously my track record is not great haha.

  1. It’s great that you are committed to improving your fitness. I have found it can make a huge difference, even just doing some basic exercises to help build mussel. It made me feel stronger both physically and mentally. 🙂

  2. I have only worked out three times this year so far but that is so much progress for someone like me! Keep it up, hopefully it will get easier for the both of us.

    Those are some pretty concrete goals. Mine are less specific, haha. I’d just like to be able to lose a couple pounds in a healthy manner and get more fit in general. I hate walking up three flights of stairs and feeling out of breath!

  3. Yeah, you are probably right. The cashier might have forgotten. Anyway, it got fixed now. 🙂 The wonders of social media.

    I am hoping to get more active this year. Maybe weekly yoga and jogging for me this year even though I haven’t resumed jogging yet.
