Finding My Feet

I’m still in flux, trying to find my feet so I’m going to do what I do best: go back to the basics.

My basics:

  • Running
  • Yoga
  • Weight Lifting

Fact: I think strength training in boring.

This is rather unfortunate because strength training has a ton of benefits.

I got out of the habit of doing regular strength training.

I’m not really sure why. I saw results. I felt awesome. Given the funk I’ve been in lately, I’m going to turn to things that I know and love.

My brief hiatus from strength training has given me the kick in the butt I need. I want my guns back!!!

Thank you to Tina for the inspiration to take my strength training into my own hands. Check out her post on how to create strength training plans!

  1. Looks like a GREAT plan! Glad I could help. And think of how fun seeing strength increases is. Let that motivate you. It always gives me the oomph for it. :)

  2. I like your plan, both the weight training plan and your “life” plan. I may just copy-cat your weight training plan cause I’m too lazy to come up with something original. ‘k?
