Healthier Year

I've got some serious mom baggage just lingering around the waist line!  It makes for outfit shopping rather difficult.  Larger waists usually mean baggier pants #thestruggle.

But we're committed to a healthier year.  In fact, I've got 12-15 weeks (military time is not one I can every truly calculate) until my husband returns, and while he's been spending his down time working on those gains, I've been gaining in the not-so-pleasant areas.  Cue the classic new year mantra - work out.  

Fitness Centers on based aren't only for those that need to be "fit to fight."  They're an awesome resource available to the entire family- and completely FREE!  I remember as a new spouse visiting the first gym on base.  I was terrified and I was so afraid I was doing something wrong, like as if I wasn't supposed to be there, but I put on my big girl pants and started asking the staff questions and next thing I knew, the gym felt like home.  

In Colorado, you can never fully predict the weather, so flexible outfits are a must.  These leggings are thin and super comfortable.  They move with you effortlessly!  I also broke my rule and ran in my new Nike's that I got from Macy's.  They are a youth size, and although I wear an 8.5 in women's, in youth I wear a 7.  They are my favorite athleisure shoe, but they were amazingly comfortable to run in.  I can't forget the lightweight Columbia fleece pull over.  It's light enough to let you move freely, but soft enough to keep the Colorado chill out.  

And... I cannot start a healthy work out regimen, without Spark.  It's my go to for energy and replaces........ coffee.
