FITNESS

(images all found via pinterest)
since having cedar it's been hard to find the time to workout. while i was pregnant i had myself convinced that it would be easy to make the time. & i truly could not wait to start working out again. i'm sad to say i have only gone running twice since having cedar in june. & have only gone rock climbing once since having cedar. these are things i thought i would be able to do a lot more. but you know.. it's pretty hard. i never really thought how time consuming these things are. plus, i have a lot more responsibility now. it's been a little hectic & i obviously have not made working out a priority. 
my sister-in-law teaches a barre fitness class every wednesday night, & i have been wanting to go, so i finally went last night. before going i got tempted not to go. a friend was in town & wanted to meet for dinner & i really wanted to say yes. but then i decided that was the absolute worst reason not to work out... to eat. so i proudly said i couldn't & i went off to barre.
the class was such an intense workout, i really had no clue what i was getting myself into. & there's seriously so little even done at the barre.. it surprised me. but you know what, i really liked it & enjoyed it. i miss the burning feeling my body gets after a good workout, & how accomplished i feel afterwards. i'm so happy i actually stayed committed & went to the class. i'm going to make it a goal to go every week. 
going to the class made me realize how much i do love pushing my body, how i crave the desire & i enjoy a good workout. i feel so good about myself, it sort of gives me a rush. i want to get back to where i was this time last year. i swear i was in my fitness prime. i was stronger than i had been before, we were rock climbing a lot & i had just finished my third 1/2 marathon & signed up for my fourth. i just need to remember the time & dedication that it takes. i know it won't be easy, but i have to keep going, for myself. i don't want to keep wishing i was in better shape, i want to actually be in better shape.

  1. girlll so first of all just thoroughly stalked your blog and your guys are adorable.
    second why is life so crazy. i used to be an extremely active person. i've been meaning to get back into my routine, but its hard. moving, interning, finding jobs and moving again this weekend, life gets crazy. i'm excited to be settled and its my goal to find time to exercise.
    and barre classes, i heard those rock.
