My sister-in-law has inspired me to do the Insanity workout. My brother did it a long time ago and it worked out awesome for him. I tried doing the Fit Test probably a year or 2 ago and completely failed. BUT today I did it and did I fail? Yes, slightly, but I did finish it. Afterwards I went on a 30 minute walk with Charlie. I hope I can get into a routine and actually complete the Insanity 2 month workout. Month one ends right before we go to Jamaica. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Week One

After blogging last week about getting into shape I had a total failure of a week. For some reason I decided to make both a batch of cookies and brownies...and pizza and well, lots of bad food. Oh and also a fail in the workout department too, besides walking the dog every once in awhile. Soooooo needless to say I have no good update in terms of fitness. My husband told me we are going to start working out together starting tomorrow. We will see how it goes.

Getting Fit for our trip to...


That's right! We are planning a trip to Jamaica for our 2 year anniversary. I know 2 years isn't a "big" or "milestone" but after much discussion we decided that we should just go for it. After our Honeymoon mishaps, I've been striving to convince my husband that we need to go on a more romantic and relaxing vacation. Why now you ask? Well, since we are currently just renting, we have some extra funds saved up and so before we settle in and buy a house (which comes with ongoing expenses and no time for a big vacay) and possibly start a family (did I say that out loud??) we decided it would be the perfect time. So we are headed to Jamaica for 7 days in May!

That means I have 6 weeks to attempt to get in shape. I think I will start compiling all my fitness pins on Pinterest and put together a fitness plan. This is always so difficult for me, but I really want to try to stick with it. And really its not only because of the trip, I've been wanting to get more fit for awhile now (what a surprise) and I think this might be the perfect motivation as a jump start. I'm writing this blog post as a hope to keep myself accountable for working out and eating healthier. Tomorrow is April 1st. Seems like a perfect day to start. Downfall #1...I made a huge batch of cookies this morning. They're oatmeal, does that make them healthy even though they contain 2 cups of sugar?? lol

Wish me luck! :)
