Summer is ending, and I’ll get back into a predictable routine at home. All three kiddos will be in school since my youngest is starting kindergarten. I will have five mornings a week to myself, and I want to manage my time wisely.
My number two goal is to set a realistic workout routine and get my energy back. I know for a fact that working out makes me feel better both physically and emotionally. I speak from experience when four years ago I was diagnosed with post-partum depression. My GP recommended I go see a specialist and this doctor evaluated my depression. The specialist prescribed an anti-depressant, and he clearly said the following: “Taking a pill won’t change your life… completely. The medicine will help you regain your appetite and desire to get out of bed. But is that all that you want? I don’t think so. You need to change your lifestyle and workout five days a week.” “Five days a week???” I said. “Yes, five day’s a week, not one day more, not one day less.”
And that’s when I started to work out seriously for the first time in my life. The rest of the story deserves more time for me to go back to my old journals and read what I wrote during this challenging time in my life. So what is the first step in my plan to starting working out? A cute workout outfit of course ;)
I’ve been “pining” gym clothes here are there, and now I’ve compiled a nice wishlist. Obviously I can’t purchase it all (I wish ;) but it is sure fun to put a few ideas together! Maybe a couple of these items could make my Christmas list. Do you work out on a consistent basis? Or would like to start working out? I’d love to hear from you.
