Here's something you probably didn't know about me: I'm tired...all the time. All. The. Time. I used to think I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome...something most doctors still think is a made up thing. It probably is all mental. I force myself to be productive by keeping myself insanely busy and basically driving myself into the ground, but it's not an enjoyable way to live. My diet is pretty normal, so I feel like the best way for me to revitalize myself is to regularly exercise. I live a sedentary lifestyle--I'm either working at my computer or in my car, driving to meetings and events where I only sit or stand. It's time to make some big changes in my life.
It's easy to fall behind and get lazy with fitness when you're doing in private, so I'm making this public so all of you hold me accountable for my progress. I WANT TO CHANGE. I ideally want to rock climb twice a week and run twice a week...we'll see how that goes!
Here's my first rock climbing post. I'm still a beginner but I'm really proud of my progress so far. I'm also extremely afraid of heights so being able to climb that high and jump off the wall onto the mats below was a terrific feat. My workout was made all the easier with A+ gear that kept me as fresh and dry as possible, and a spacious, low-absorbency duffel bag (in sushi-wrapped puppies and kittens print, no less!) that carried my chalk bag, water, and a change of clothes. And now, my readers can get an exclusive 15% discount off a duffel bag of your choice over at Punchdrunk Panda with the code PDPxFC15 (limit 50, expires December 31, 2014).
I'm so stoked to be working out again. It's been four years since I was last in a gym...eeep! What's your favorite way to stay in shape?
What I'm wearing:
Peach Pop sports bra.
Peach Pop cutout crop workout legging.
LaSportiva "Katana" climbing shoes (similar here).
Punchdrunk Panda "Sushiverse" duffel bag.
