Workout Wednesday

My birthday gift to myself this year, is the tools to get me back in shape. My goal for my 28th year of life was to get in the best shape of my life. That didn't happen. 29th year goal? Get in the best shape of my life!

Last December I signed up for a half marathon that I spent months training for. I didn't stick to the training plan very well, but most weeks I would get about 4 days of activity in. Before I knew it, April was here and so was my race. I had just completed 13.1 miles, albeit some of it was walking, I still accomplished my goal.

Since that race I have become increasingly lazy and unmotivated to put down the wine box glass and lace up my running shoes.

While scrolling through Facebook the other night I noticed an acquaintance who used to live in my old apartment building had an opening for one of his small personal training groups. Oh, most of you probably know who this guy is too. He was on a little show called The Bachelorette and was one of the last men standing during Ali Fedowsky's season. Yup, Kirk.

I messaged him asking some basic questions and he offered to let me come in and try out the group before committing to anything. Tuesday evening I headed over to the gym and completely got my butt kicked.

After the session, I knew this was something that I need to do, so I'm going to start with 10 hours of small personal group, which is usually three people, and see where I need to go from there.

Kirk will help with putting together a menu, if you will, so I can better fuel my body for the changes that are coming. He'll also give me homework to do during the week so I can stay on top of my goals.

Step two in the process of getting in the best shape of my life, is completing Bobbi's Summer Shred - Fall Edition. At nearly a dollar a day and reading the reviews I've read, I knew it was something I couldn't pass up.

The Summer Shred will start September 1 which fits perfectly into my schedule since I only have one wedding on the books so I can be more in control of how I eat and making sure to get my workouts in.

Oh, and if any of you ladies (or gents) out there want to try out an hour session with Kirk, you and I will get a free hour.
