Last week I wrote about all of the different exercise programs that I have tried over the years. Do you know though, I still have the question, what does it take to be fit? Personally, I have based my fitness level on how far or fast I can run or how many times I workout per week or, dare I say, the number on the scale. That needs to change. How I feel (I don’t mean an abstract feeling) should be my fitness indicator. I need measure my energy and endurance level (Am I seeing and increase or decrease over time?). I currently do not have a goal. I do not have a level I want to get to. I want to be in that maintenance phase that everyone talks about but no one seems to ever be in.
So I am revising my sentence above. I now have a goal. My goal is to maintain; to find what works for me to feel good and be a lifestyle and not be something I will ever finish. I want to get fit by exploring fitness and trying new things. I want fitness to be a routine but not a single thing. Who is with me?
I am going to be trying various workouts and gyms and letting you know what is great abut them. Not so that I can find the perfect thing but because I like variety. I’d also like to show that they all have value. I do know if you are looking to do a weight lifting competition or a bikini competition there are proven programs that work. This is not what I am writing about. For those of us looking for a healthy lifestyle, so many things are great and work. I’d love for you to follow my journey of healthy living.
