I have had this blog for a long time! I haven’t deleted it because I have always kind of intended to return to this project in some shape or form :)
A lot has happened since I last posted here. One thing that has not changed is that Zuzana Light is still my fitness hero :) That is pretty much the only thing that has not changed (haha). Here is a list of things that have changed over the past few years that are directly related to my blog or reasons why I have been absent.
- Zuzana Light left Bodyrock and now has her own site, Zuzkalight.com. It is wonderful and her content is better than ever, but there is now a monthly subscription fee to access her content (I am a paying subscriber and feel it is definitely worth the money). I am over the moon happy for her–unfortunately this means I can no longer re-post her workouts on my site because that would be theft. :(
- I have been working my tail off in school and will be graduating with honors from the University of North Texas with my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology! Where I am limited in my ability to share Zuzka Light’s content, I can make up for with a dramatic increase in my own health and fitness knowledge thanks to my education.
- Anthony and I are getting married in October! YAY! The date is fast approaching :) We have actually been engaged for almost two years now and have had the luxury of time when it came to wedding planning, but now the you-know-what is hitting the fan!
- I am still working close to full time hours and now that school is coming to a close, I will be pursuing my career–potentially as a personal trainer, but definitely something in the health and fitness field!
I think it is safe to say I have been extremely busy! I miss my blog so much and am happy to be returning to it after so long. That being said, I will have to reconstruct it to some degree. Its original purpose was to chronicle my fitness journey and progress through each one of Zuzana Light’s bodyrock workouts. Now that she is no longer with them and her content is paid, I will have to change the theme of the blog a bit. It will still be related to health and fitness (with a little nutrition mixed in perhaps), and I will still post my scores for her workouts and link to the content–I simply will not be able to repost the workout itself.
It is actually convenient that this blog is forced to take a bit of a turn. You see–my intentions have changed as well. I have changed dramatically as a person after so much time has passed! I am still so passionate about fitness, but I would say I have adopted more of a mind-body-spirit approach and have really become interested in yoga. I have also not been nearly as active as I used to be because I have been so busy and have failed to make time for my fitness. Sadly I have put on quite a bit of weight (about 20 lbs heavier than I would like to be) and have been neglecting my nutrition a bit. I have been struggling a bit with self control and binge eating as a result of stress, I suppose. So although I still have some of my strength and endurance from walking all over campus and taking a physical education class here and there, I will be starting from the beginning again. There is no better time to jump aboard a blog about a fitness journey than the very beginning! It will not be easy, and that is why I need this web of support. I suppose there are others out there that are a lot like me that need support too :) Hopefully we can lift each other up and celebrate our success together!
