For those of you who have been following me, for the Gluten Free and Dairy Free recipes and stuff, that is not going anywhere. I am just incorporating my new desire and journey to get fit.
I will be writing about what programs, classes and other forms of exercise that I am doing to work toward achieving my goals.
Right now I am using PiYo from Beachbody, and will be starting the 21 day fix from Beachbody in a couple of weeks. I also love going on walks, and hiking. I am also wanting to get into rock climbing, which I am hoping PiYo and losing weight will help me with.
I am really working on eating healthier, which is something that I struggle with maintaining. Though I am trying to bounce back from having an off day or a bad food day a lot better, and not letting one bad day completely derail the progress I have been making.
I have come to a point in my life where I am fed up with being overweight, and having it get in my way, as well as hindering me from doing what I really love doing, being outdoors. I love being outdoors going hiking and on adventures. Both activities would be so much easier and more enjoyable if I was more fit, and thinner.
I also want to be more flexible and toned, especially since I have an old ankle injury that never healed properly. I had badly sprained my ankle when I was 15 (in my freshmen year of High School), and then I went to marching band practice that same day, and then had marched in a 4.2 mile parade on it within that same week. It has been weak and prone to re-injuring ever since. I have sprained twice more since then. I did have it checked out and x-rayed well after the fact, and there was no evidence of it having been fractured the first time I injured it, so it was concluded that it was a very bad sprain. I am hoping that with PiYo, it will help strengthen my ankle a bit more so it is not as weak as it currently is.
