New year, new you? For me it’s more like new year and need to get back to the old me! ;). I’m sharing some fitness confessions in today’s post with a look back on 2020 and where I’m SO ready to be in 2021!
I shared a few 2020 posts last week (Best of Beauty Products, Top Sellers of 2020 and a What I Learned in 2020 more personal post) but today I’m sharing some fitness confessions that I have a feeling I wasn’t alone on. In 2020 it was safe to say that the wine consumption was up and the workout sessions were down. It was a wild year and honestly, through the first quarantine, we were literally drinking just about every night. I don’t know if it was boredom, stress or just a little something to help take the edge off all the anxiety and uncertainty buttttt wine nights were no stranger in 2020.
The second half of the year we kind of got into the swing of things but the wine indulging was still at an all-time high. Combining that with a decrease in workouts and it’s safe to say I tacked on a few lbs. Now the few lbs are not something I’m stressing out about because I definitely don’t have room to complain in the weight department… but I do love working out and eating well overall as it just makes me FEEL so much better. In 2021 I’m ready to get back to meal prepping which always helps me eat cleaner. I also plan on sharing on stories to give you girls some inspo…and to help keep me accountable as well. I would like to say no drinking during the week and saving it for the weekends, but I’m going to “realistically” aim for only drinking only once during the weekdays and save the other indulging for the weekend. 😉 I just love a glass of wine at dinner with the hubby after a long day and feel like with my kiddos only in school for 2.5 hours a day…..sometimes that weekday glass is needed (can I get an amen?! ha).
As for workouts, I am most definitely a gym-going kind of girl. I’ve always loved the people watching and motivated by taking tons of different classes to switch things up. Gyms in SoCal have pretty much been closed for the majority of 2020 and the brief amount of time they were open, I honestly just didn’t feel comfortable going. I’ve never been more grateful for the small space in my garage I transitioned into a home gym as I definitely got my use out of it this year. Also now realizing I don’t think I’ve ever shared a full post on my section of the garage I converted into a workout space. I shared a post on everything I purchased for my home gym but let me know if you girls are interested in a quick tour and I’ll put a quick one together for you.
Now while I do love my home gym, I am so missing all my old workout classes and boot camps. I’ve forced myself to take workout outdoors but am going to do that more of that in 2021! I always feel so much better after I force myself to do them. Some local gyms here have converted outdoor spaces so this year I am going to push myself out of my comfort zone and try some new ones! While I love my home workouts I get bored easily so different classes help keep me motivated. So this is where I’m at and motivated to get to it!
