Observation: What do I notice?
Why a month of Weights?
I have been a long time runner, its a practice and habit that I have grown to love and has served me well for almost 3 years. I rarely miss a day of running, my only requirement is to run for 20 min and then I am off the treadmill and out of the gym.
I created this habit to make sure I was getting some sort of exercise in, and starting my day with movement. Its when my best ideas come and I still love it.
But what I'm noticing is that its not much of a challenge, and I haven't tried to push myself to run further or change up the change much. I also feel like I could I could use a little variety.
I've avoided doing weights in the past because I thought it was boring, wouldn't feel like a workout, or wouldn't give me the same release as running did.
I also felt like insecure and lost in the weight room, I couldn't even begin to think of where to start.
Hypothesis: I'm hoping that I get stronger but also help to incorporate some other things I can add to my workout routine. I hope to feel empowered by learning this skill. I hope also to feel more energized, excited about the process and that it helps influence other areas of health in my life.
Also, I love that I'm doing this with my husband, I think that by having our date of working out together it will strengthen our connection.
Methods: What am I going to do? 28 days of pre determined workouts similar to cross fit. I'll write and post about my experience for accountability on this blog and Instagram stories.
