I want to be bold. Or at least bolder than I am. So what’s more bold than posting a picture that is extremely mortifying. The first picture is me in January of 2015 when I first started to want to get serious about my fitness and health experience.
However, barely a month in I had a small hiccup. Some pain that I had been having since high school started to get more serious which eventually led to me needing hip surgery (more on that later).
But January of this (2016) I was cleared for all activity and I decided I was not going to let myself take advantage of my abilities anymore. So I started working out 5-6 days a week. I started tracking everything I eat. I started getting excited to work out. I LOVE circuits. Whether they’re timed or consists of set reps, don’t care. They’re all great. This was so freeing to be excited to work out. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t inactive before. I played golf in college for a D1 school so we had cardio and weight training several days a week. So I wasn’t new to the weight room, I just never was thrilled to be there and would have never said I was pushing myself that hard. So the second picture is me recently.
In addition to this, I LOVE cooking. I love food in general. And wine. So I’m not someone who wants to give up everything that I love for this journey. I’ve been finding alternatives for the foods that I love. I’ve been experimenting more with new foods and new cooking techniques. I love wine. I love finding new ones, new tastings, finding new wineries, new food and wine pairing.
So what to expect from me here? A multitude of things: my inspirations, motivations, recipes, workouts, wine recommendations, the list could evolve from there as this is just the beginning.
So thanks for joining me on this adventure!
