My personal fitness journey has been quite the ride. It hasn’t always been easy for me to keep consistent but I have never given up.
I have trained at a Muay Thai gym in Atlanta, GA, walked a half marathon in Jamaica and have recently walked the Out of the Darkness 5k walk. In between, I have had personal trainers both online and off, participated in an online bootcamp and even have a fitness challenge here on my blog every year.
Plus we remodeled our garage into a home gym! That was one of the best investments we have made. I used to have to drive over 30 min. each way to get to a gym so it’s much better now. We do miss our spin classes however we did add 2 spin bikes to our home gym (along with a treadmill & elliptical and other fun things) so we hold our own spin classes.
I truly had to step out of my comfort zone when it came to training at the Muay Thai gym but I love boxing so much that I knew I needed to do it. And when it came to the half marathon, my initial goal was to run it but some breathing issues put a halt on that so I made it my mission to walk the entire thing. It was the hardest thing I have ever done but with the support of the most awesome hubby in the world, we finished it together.
He could have completed it in a much shorter time but he stuck with me the entire race and cheered me on. It was very emotional but I did it and it was an amazing feeling.
I have a long way to go but I still love to workout. I also want to get more active outdoors when I can so bikes are on our wish list.
I have a few big goals I would like to accomplish:
- Lose 100+ pounds
- Go roller skating and rollerblading
- Participate in more races (walking)
What are some of your big fitness goals?
FitFluential LLC compensated me for this Campaign. All opinions are my own.
Great goals to have. I’m sure you can do it. I like the look of your home gym. Having a blog like this is a great way to keep you motivated and accountable. The Under Armour What’s Beautiful looks a great resource too. Good luck!
Thanks Ron! We do love our home gym, best investment ever.
Great goals, Angie! It’s such a great campaign- so inspiring to see women go after their dreams, and set our own at the same time. Having the guts to go after a big goal makes any woman beautiful!
Thanks for your support Laura! I agree, great campaign and awesome company makes it even better.
I am with you – I’m doing my first walking half marathon this weekend. I have a reconstructed knee and fused toe joint, both from years of soccer, so cannot run. But that’s not going to stop me from this new challenge. I think you might consider becoming an indoor cycling instructor – you obviously love it, you are inspiring, you’d get paid and you would definitely lose the weight you mention. I’ll bet people would come to your class and LOVE it. Heck, you could get your teaching cert, then buy more bikes & teach in your garage – liability insurance would be a must. You go!
You go girl! I cannot wait to hear how your walking half goes. Stay hydrated!
I have thought about the cycling certificate in the past and might look into it further however I am swamped with client work at home so not sure if I have free days to do classes. But you never know, I have thrown the idea around quite a bit.
NOW if our garage was bigger, getting my cert and buying more bikes plus insurance would work nicely!
