Sexy Saturdays

I have decided it is time I recommit myself to the gym! During my pregnancy I let fitness take a back seat to everything else going on in my life. I convinced myself that this was the last time I could partake in eating whatever I wanted without worrying about weight gain. Sadly those bad eating habits have continued long after the birth of my daughter and has now caught up to me. I'm now struggling to get rid of these last few baby pounds. I also noticed my energy level is not as high as it could be. I will be starting a series on my blog called "Sexy Saturdays". This section will be dedicated to fitness. I know people usually share their journey for "Fitness Fridays" but I wanted to share my results at the end of the week.

I plan to share my monthly goals and weekly progress towards those goals. I may even share some recipes. If there is anything in particular you'd like me to share please let me know.

When planning my goals I want to make sure they are realistic. I don't want to overwhelm myself or discourage myself by setting too many goals. Below are my goals for the remainder of March through April.

1. Go to the gym 3 times a week for at least 30 mins.
2. Take stairs at work instead of elevator. The only exception is when I first get to work due to time and how I enter the building.
3. Limit myself to 1 soda a week. I plan to scale back until I'm down to an occasional soda by the end of the year.

What are your fitness goals?


  1. Hey Blutiful Blaq, I will definitely be checking in. I have to get back on track too. My goals are to get back to working out 3 times a week and to cut sodas completely. I was doing great, then started working and hit the vending machines for a soda. Can you share some of the things you're doing at the gym? thanks and I wish you much success!!!~Robin

  2. I wish you the best on your fitness journey, I too have dropped the ball a little on working out, I was always able to eat fairly healthy, it's just the fitness thing I struggle with from time to time.

  3. Great goals chica! I felt the same way about eating whatever I wanted whilst---and post baby. But you got this! Feel free to linkup your Sexy Saturday posts with the Fitness Friday linkup. It totally doesn't matter what day you share your wellness thoughts! We welcome you any day of the week! Ha-ha!
