January Jump Start: let’s do this!

Today is the day we kick things off! Maybe you are already working out, maybe you just need a little push or maybe today is the day you are starting. Wherever you are, glad you are here. We have some fun things lined up!

If you didn’t see the intro post, it’s here and you can still join us! Everything is free, we just ask for your participation!


I will weigh and measure Friday this week. I try to do that on a day I’m not working out. It’s too hard to weigh and measure at 4:30 in the morning before heading out for a run. You don’t have to do that, but it will help track your progress.

I’ll admit I have not gotten on the scale in over a month. I know that it’s just a number, but that number has gone up and I’m afraid of it.

A few goals of mine this month:

  • Track food in My Fitness Pal
  • Drink my water!
  • Work on my core
  • No fast food for lunch. This has to be taken a week at a time. It’s a hard one for me.
  • Try something new

Our first giveaway starts today! We have 1 pair of Swiftwick pink compression socks to give away, size Medium. I love compression socks and Swiftwick is one of my favorites! I really believe in compression for support during a run or workout and recovery after. They boost blood flow which aids is muscle recovery after a hard workout. I also think the socks help with shin pain, but I haven’t found anything solid on that. The socks are tight, but not uncomfortable. They are moisture wicking, which all your workout clothes should be. If you are working out in cotton t-shirts you should try moisture wicking clothes just once!  They also prevent blisters.

It’s a gym day for me today. I need to get back to working on my bench press. I got side tracked during (the first round of) marathon training.

Did you workout today?

Did you write down your goals?
