Back to work. It's been a while since I did a fitness post and I am glad to be back at it. Exercise and sports have always been a part of my life; my parents put me on basketball, track, swimming and softball teams starting when I was 5. I always took it for granted and just did what I had to do without realizing what or how my body was looking and feeling the way it was. Starting about 3 or 4 months ago I decided to do pretty much what this Nike ad says (I know I am corny), "Make your body. Make your life. Make Yourself." I feel like I have finally taken control of my fitness and my body. I decide the shape I want it to be in and how far I want to push myself. Incorporating a lot more weight training and less just plain cardio has definitely made that difference for me. And on top of that, keeping track of every workout in a fitness notebook holds me accountable and also helps me see how much I have accomplished and how far I have come.
Remember, clothes don't look good unless your body looks good!
