Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow

I recently started to work out at a local gym. Before this, I've never enjoyed working out or anything even remotely in that spectrum. Ask my PE teachers. ha. My dad is a recent diabetic and diabetes runs on both sides of my family which equals an 80% chance of developing it myself. I'm 24 and while I am skinny, I'm not fit and I needed a change. 

I started with Yoga and Pilates and decided that I wanted something more so my goal for this year is to run a 5k! I plan to run a local race and to also do the Color Run with some friends! 

Seriously?!?! How fun does this look?!?! I'm super excited for this!

While I loved going to Yoga and Pilates classes, my schedule doesn't really allow me to attend them anymore so I've been doing my workout at home. I stumbled across a blogger, Cassey Ho, who has workout videos on YouTube. I used two of her videos for my workout today. She has a super energetic, upbeat personality that makes working out fun!

Here are the two I did today:

Call Me Maybe Squat Challenge

Want You Back Arms

After I did these two workouts I spent a half hour on the elliptical at the gym.

I always feel so good after I work out and I aim to make this a lifestyle. I'm just starting out and I really have to push myself and sometimes want to give up but a lot of times, I look around me and see people who are pushing themselves that really have challenges. Today there was a lady in her 70's who used a walker to get around and she was working out. I've seen so many people that inspire me and make me push beyond wanting to quit!

Have you recently started working out? What are your fitness goals for this year?
