So, I haven’t been out running in months. Probably at least 6 months. My ankle was bothering me enough to make me stop. While I stopped running, I haven’t stopped working out. Regular exercise has been a part of my life for years and years.
I’ve been giving my exercise bike a good workout again. I wish I had started a continuous accounting of the miles on it when I got it. There are thousands and thousands of miles on that bike. I love it!
And, weight work is a consistent part of my life as well. Building muscle is so important, especially since I’m not getting any younger, lol.
I’ve been following Chris Freytag from Get Healthy U and Get Healthy U Tv for a while now. A month or so ago, I decided to join Get Healthy U Tv. This is a subscription that gives me access to tons of workouts, meal planning, live workouts, recipes, etc. I love it! She gives a code to join for just $10 for a year, for a premium subscription. But, I joined as a Gold member for $20 for the entire year. This level gives me access to the live workouts. The price will go up, of course, to renew at the end of the year. I love it so much, I’m seriously thinking about continuing when the year is up. But, for now, I’m just enjoying it. My ankle bothers me sometimes, but not as much as when I was running. Maybe, once the weather warms up, I’ll try running again. But, for now, I’m loving this.
This morning, I did a live kettlebell workout. I follow along on my computer as they are doing it live in their studio. It was so much fun, and a really great workout. There are a wide variety of workouts available on the site. And, with my membership, I can download 10 full length videos to have forever. It’s pretty great!
Chris Freytag is a great motivator! I follow her on Facebook and Instagram. On Mondays, at lunchtime, she goes live on Facebook to talk about all kinds of health and fitness related topics. It’s great! You should definitely check it out.
I also got a Fitbit Flex 2 a while back. Christopher and Sarah recommended it. I love this too. It tracks my steps, my sleep, my exercise, my water intake. It motivates me to move even more throughout the day.
I’m feeling pretty good, health wise. I’m maintaining my weight loss from last year, which I love. Still eating a mostly healthy diet. I enjoy treats, but I don’t overdo it. And I’m still drinking a ton of water.
It really does pay to take care of yourself.
