GL Gets Fit #107 {birthday!!}

Tomorrow will be a new chapter in my life. This book is getting very interesting. #wisdom #affirmations: Hi Loves!  Tomorrow – is today actually.  Yesterday was my birthday.  Today is my second day of being 33.  33?! Why is it typing that for the first few days seems odd?  I’m not old I swear! 🙂

I was looking for a quote for this week’s post and this one seemed fitting.  Last week was an adventure for me.  I took on working out for 5 of 7 days.  I took Sunday and Monday (my birthday) off working out.  However- I did get in at least 20-30 minutes a day of exercise and I’m still holding my own at my 30 day challenge.

I took a step towards getting back in to the exercise habit.  A few years ago I bought a few dvd’s.  They’d been gathering dust.  I figured, now is the time to get back to moving again, even just to dust them off! 🙂  When I started this journey – I was focused on yoga pretty hard core.  However, I felt the desire to try my walking workouts again.  So thats what I did all week.  I think in the near future I’ll work towards integrating yoga back in a day or two a week just to stretch and uncrunch.  This has certainly been a journey.

Since my birthday last year – I’ve lost family members. I’ve gained some weight, I’ve lost some weight (thank god, all staying within a 10 pound range).  I’ve met amazing people, and realized a few things.  Without getting all mushy – lets just stay that I think this week’s quote is pretty spot on.  Yesterday a new year – a new chapter opened in my book.  How will I fill the pages?  How will I feel?  What do I want to accomplish this year?

If I learned anything at all this year – its that we don’t know how much time we have.  Tell your loved ones (friends or family) how important they are to you.  Set a goal to squash.  Plan something to look forward to.  Lastly – know that things always seem to work out in the end.  Ok… confession – I’m still working on that myself.  I’d like to think that everything will come together in the end.

In true GL Gets Fit fashion.  I must say that I gained a pound this week.  But screw it, it was my birthday, I had a wonderful weekend and birthday dinner last night.  Friday I’m going to a concert, and Saturday a wine tasting. Then my birthday week of festivities will come to an end.  Until next year that is.

See you all next week! 🙂
