Two weeks ago, I told you about my fitness story and how even though I lost a lot of weight, I’ve put on about 10 lbs from my lowest and I’d like to get back there.

Even worse than being heavier than I know I could be is knowing just how fit I used to be.

There was that time I ran the Disney Tower of Terror Ten Miler with my cousins


  There was that one time I did the Mudderella with a couple of my then-teammates.



And there was also that time I did a Tough Mudder with my boyfriend.

When Casey and I first started dating, I was doing pushups with a plate on my back. Now I can’t even do as many push ups as I used to. The most frustrating thing, even more than seeing ugly numbers on the scale, is knowing that I’ve lost ability- that I used to be able to do something and now I can’t.

So this is my motivation- I want to be able to do those things again. I want to be able to do the push ups and the almost pull ups! Now with Casey gone, I know that I can channel the time I usually spend on us into writing him cute letters and working out more. If he’s in RTAC and Ranger school for a total of 75 days, think I could do one more push up a day and end up with 75 push ups? Sounds like a goal!

I was emailing Anna, my co-host, earlier this week talking about all the things we both have going on. She just moved, wrote an ebook, and is planning a wedding! I, on the other hand, am moving to a new city, starting a new job, finding a new church, and trying to balance everything else going on.

Life can get busy, and that’s okay. What’s important, though, is to push back!

I want to be able to lift more. I want to be able to push more and pull more. I want to be stronger. I want to be better. And I want to be fit for me. 

Make sure to hop over to my other co-hosts and read about Anna’s motivation and Angie’s motivation too! In two weeks (September 3), we’ll be talking about our current workout routines!
