One Year of Strength Training!

22 Oct

Just a quick hello to say “Happy Anniversary of Healthiness to Me!”  Yeah, what a narcissist. ;) But, but… I’m SO happy!  (And dare I say, shocked?)  I’m happy I’ve been able to keep up this lifestyle for a full year!!   When I started P90X exactly one year ago today I was hoping and praying it would be a long-term change.  I wanted to make some improvements in my health for the better.  And I’m beyond delighted that I’ve stuck with my new habits for a full year.  Here’s to the next year of fitness and healthy eating being a regular part of my life!


Now my fridge looks like this! (Well, when I remember to grocery shop ;))

    You made me realize that I must be celebrating the same anniversary! Don’t remember the exact date but pretty sure it’s the same week as you. I, too, can’t believe where the year has taken me because of that decision to just push play one year ago. Happy Anniversary! :)

      Well Happy Anniversary to you too!! :) I’ve actually had a lot of fun today already just thinking back on it. I’m a huge fan of celebrating – any reason will work. And this is a great reason!! Hope you’re celebrating too!

    Congratulations! You SHOULD be incredibly proud :) I found this post incredibly motivating. I have spent the last 2 years moving toward better health, but so easily slipping back into old habits. This was a nice “fire up” to keep moving forward! And a good reminder strength training has GOT to be at (or near) the top of my list this winter! Thanks for sharing :)

      Thank you so much!! And glad to help be a motivator! It’s actually been a motivator for me too :) Kind of a nice reminder of, oh yeah… there’s a reason I’m doing this! It has certainly helped me get my workouts in this busy week! Also I’m a huge fan of celebrating – so celebrate I shall!

      Haha thank you! It doesn’t always look that way, but that’s the way it is after a chopping party!

    Amazing Kelly! You should be the poster girl for strength training – inspiring others as you go along as well :) !

    • kelly @ racesrepsramblings October 25, 2013 at 8:23 am #

      Aww thanks Lucy! WOOT! Though I must say, it does always surprise me how much I enjoy it now. It’s become my preferred form of working out. Just proof that preferences can change. I NEVER thought I’d say that I like strength training and yoga. Look at me now!

    I just started adding strength back into my life and you motivated me to do a before and after picture!

    • kelly @ racesrepsramblings October 29, 2013 at 11:13 am #

      Happy to help motivate!! And YES definitely do the before/after picture. I remember HATING taking the first one, but now I’m so happy I did!!
