Fit Fridays: What I’m Doing (Move Every Day)



Hitting two of my goals for the year, 1) getting in better than pre baby shape and 2) getting my sexy back, both come with a major need to exercise and eat right. (duh)

I’m working hard on both. Knowing how I am (or at least, how I have been this past year), I had to set up my plans to be:

  1. Excuses proof

  2. Boredom proof

  3. Laziness proof

Therefore I haven’t created a rigid workout routine yet. I’ve only created the rule that I must “move every day.” So far it’s going well.

I’ve got all my bases covered: Cardio, weights, stretching, yoga, at home, at the gym….whatever.

At home I’ve got:

Then I got a gym membership ($20/month!) for classes, the dreadmill tread mill, and heavier weight training.

With my Move Every day goal, everything I do is a win. So on a lazy day, I just did a few sets of pushups and some abs on the ball. Whatever. I still moved. Win. Yesterday aunt flo decided to ruin my life and I felt like crap so I did just 10 mins on the bike, half a dvd and some stretches.

For my nutrition I’ve been influenced a lot by two books I read recently:

Eat to Live – by Dr. Joel Fuhrman

The 4 Hour Body – by Tim Ferriss

Have you read these?

Eat to live has me eating a more veggie based diet again. The food pyramid is:

And the diet is called “Nutritarian”

Cute. But I don’t care what he calls it, other than healthy. I’ve been eating this way for a few weeks (with a few slip ups at Christmas) and find it both easy and filling. I lost a few lbs but still look the same. Feels good to eat this way though.

The 4 hour body was a really interesting book, But I’m a Tim Ferriss stan so I may be biased. The workouts he includes in he book are short on time and (allegedly) big on results so I’m going to work them into my “move every day” lifestyle somehow.

Here is the 4 Hour Body – Slow Carb Diet Cookbook – FREE! (I’m not using this but you may want to)

What are your health and fitness plans? Have you been working out and eating right?

    In this day and age I agree there really are no excuses to get fit! We have a bike in our home too as well as lots of workouts via Roku and You Tube and the usuals (Insanity, P90X, Beach Body, Jeannette Jenkins etc. which somehow DH procured for free). I’m all about keepin it moving!

    • Dani

      Yeah John and I are with your DH. He gets everything online. No point in paying $129 for what you can download for $0.

    After having this little one, I’m really committed to getting back to me. I work out at home with the Wii Fit, Wii Zumba. We have a weight bar, and dumbells. Of course there is you tube as well. I know how I am with promises to self, so I started moving in December.

    O.m.g. my periods are terrible too. You did good to be able to exercise at all . I lose a week out of my life every month.

    • Dani

      I used to lose a week per month too!! I’m getting better at drugging myself up and dealing with it.

    Aunt Flo is THE WORST right?!? I can still do my workouts during my time, but the water weight?!? Ugh! I get an extra 3-4 pounds EVERY TIME she comes! LOL! Good luck on your goals! You can do it !

    Losing weight is really a burden for most of the dieters. So it’s no surprise they use weight loss pills or some people do rigid exercise. It’s okay but you better also try yoga, which will relax your body and mind.
