Since I have decided to start riding again, I have also decided that I need to workout in addition to riding to get some strength and muscle tone back. Nick and I have tried running after work but I hate how late that makes our evenings so we've decided that we are going to try working out in our office gym during our lunch hour. There are showers to get cleaned up afterwards so I think that it is going to be successful for us. I'm actually pretty excited about it!
In addition to working out (running 3 days and weights 2 days) in the gym for 5 days a week, I am also going to make an effort to walk on my two 15 minute breaks and take the stairs instead of the elevator (I work on the 4th floor).
I read a lot of blogs about eating healthy and exercising/running and I find them to be very motivating. I really enjoy eating healthy meals with a lot of veggies. So for motivation and maybe to help others want to live a healthier lifestyle, I am going to be sharing our workouts and meals with you all.
This all starts on Monday! I am ready to get back into shape and have healthier eating habits. Of course, my main motivation for all of this is to be a better equestrian!
I'll keep you posted on how its all going!
