Killer X Training and Shoulder Tweaks

Image
Happy Thursday!

Typically, I start my Tuesdays and Thursdays with a 7 a.m. Killer X Training class at my gym. I'm NOT a morning person at all, so it's always a challenge forcing myself out of bed. Once I've walked to the bus stop and listened to music for my 15-20 minute commute, though, I'm pretty awake. Getting out of my nice, comfy bed is the hardest part!

This morning, we had a pretty upper-body intensive class, which I usually like (gotta get those arms in shape so they look nice in my bridesmaid dress in October!). Today, though, I did something wrong and managed to tweak my shoulder. I'm not really sure what it is, but lifting things (even light things like my coffee mug) makes me grimace a bit.

Getting in Shape and Getting Accountability

I'm always looking for new ways to improve myself, particularly in the fitness realm. So, when I realized just how frequently I've been mentioning my desire to lose a few pounds and get in better shape, I decided it was time to try something new!

As silly as it sounds, there's nothing that makes me get excited about a workout like new athletic apparel. Sometimes, having a super put together outfit for my run is the extra push I need to get out the door. So, in addition to sharing my progress and workouts, I'll be sharing my #WOOTD (my oh-so-creative take on OOTD - Outfit Of The Day - is a workout OOTD).

So, without further ado...day one!
