Redefining Saturdays

If I were to use one word to describe my typical Saturday morning activities, I’d say “relaxing.” In this case, it is a euphemeism for “sloth-like.” From about 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., you would typically find me reading on the couch or playing on the computer–still in pjs. Today, I want to begin redefining my Saturday mornings. From lying down to getting up and owning the day–making every minute count. This morning, I’ll be taking my two dogs on a long walk (they’re going to love this whole lifestyle change thing–more fun for them!) and heading to the gym. If the weather cooperates, I’ll also be walking a lot at a corn maze tonight.

My goal with this whole process is to do active things that I love so it doesn’t feel like “working out.” Instead, it feels like “having fun.” Walking the dogs, bike riding and swimming are all things that I love and will be great activities to incorporate into my new Saturdays. How about you? What calorie-burning activities do you enjoy? (Keep this at least PG-13 clean, please!)

About Kristen K

My life has always been pretty darn fantastic--except for one thing: my weight. Not too long ago, I tipped the scale at 283 pounds. I'd gain some, lose some and gain some right back, and I was so frustrated. When I saw a notice for a Biggest Loser-style contest in my local paper, I applied on the spot and I felt like I won the lottery when I found out I was one of the five contestants chosen. We worked out four times a week with trainers and followed a clean eating diet, and my life completely transformed. I've lost more than 60 pounds and I'm feeling confidence for the first time in my life. I'm 29 years old with a great husband, a rewarding job, two adorable dogs and fantastic friends. Weight loss continues to be a struggle now that the contest has ended, but this time I know that I can do it and I'm fully committed. This blog has seved as an accountability tool as I journey from a happy, but fat, person to a happy and confident person. And for the first time in my life, I'm no longer putting it off until tomorrow. This time, I'm starting this minute.
