Cultivating my "fit chick" persona

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Okay, I've often said that I am not a sporty person by nature. I danced, did gymnastics and played field hockey as a kid, but I can't really say that it was part of my being like my sister or others I know. However, I'm really going for it: I want to cultivate my inner "fit chick".

So here's where I'm at: I am registered in two weekly courses- a hip hop dance class Tuesday night, and my usual Zumba class on Fridays. In addition, I've started running. I downloaded a "couch to 5K" app for my iPod and I've completed the first 5 runs of the program. To further inspire myself, I've signed up for my first official race- 5k (I know, a whoooole 5k!) and I'm going to rock it. Even if I have to roll/slither/fall over the finish line.

I am hoping that I can keep the momentum going and really give 'er. I have concerns that if I take a day off I'll start to slack and lose my oomph, but I am pretty committed and my poor hubby is trying to take my new-found enthusiasm in stride (not literally of course, as he's even less of a natural "fittie" than I am).

So this is week two...and I'm making it public to encourage me to avoid future humiliation. :)

You may now shower me with encouragement and really...go ahead...

Or you could just share what active things YOU do to keep fit and happy. Your turn!
