Wednesday Write-Up: Working Out

As my 35th birthday fast approaches, I have been feeling like I want to be a healthier, stronger, and happier Jenny.
I wrote a post a while back about Promises that I was making to myself. One of them was that I wanted to get into a fitness routine.  I finally feel like I have done it, or are doing it… however I am supposed to say it, I am finally doing it! I have been working out regularly for about three months now. This is almost a miracle, I haven’t been this excited about exercising since I was in my very early 20’s. I am so excited!
Before this new found determination (turning 35 is kicking my butt in gear) I had taken long hikes and yoga classes here and there, but while I was visiting California this year I got hardcore. Ok, well hardcore for me. I started jogging 20 minutes a day. For being a person that was definitely NOT a jogger, it was a huge step (no pun intended).

Look at me, all fashionable when I work out. Okay, maybe not...

Now that we are back in Thailand, it can get a bit hot to jog during the day when I am able to get out of the house child free. Lucky for me, we have a neighborhood exercise park that has a stationary bike in the shade! So now I ride the bike for 20 minutes a day 5 days a week, and then do some of the muscle toning machines concentrating on my thighs and triceps. Will I ever get rid of the swinging arms? Hopefully. I can see it in my future. The best part is I get to work out in a gym for FREE! Granted it sometimes feels like I am biking in a sauna, but the extra sweat makes me feel like I worked out extra hard. And I get to work on my tan, I just can’t lose in this situation. Well, except maybe inches and pounds.

So as my birthday approaches, I am not only looking forward to ice-cream cake and presents, I am looking to being a better Jenny for the next 35 plus years.
