Fityes

I bet you've seen something on IG or FB about Huset Fitness, Jenna's awesome, out of the blue e-crew she started to get in better shape. OK YOU NEED TO JOIN THIS GROUP.

Sorry, calming down now...

Backstory: I've never ever been good at exercise. I hate running, I tend to marathons (of Gran Hotel) before marathons (of running). I got a D in p.e. in junior high... really, I did. And I'm skinny. Naturally, without much effort, skinny. I will count my blessings, yes, but skinny does not equal strong... and skin still stretches and boobs still deflate... and it's happened x 6 (so far). After I had Peter I started having back issues and my posture was just awful and I knew I was running my body into the ground. I spent my entire pregnancy with Joe planning on being serious about getting my body strong after he came. My goal wasn't just baby-weight loss (because the belly is still serious, postpartum chonies and all)- it was mostly strength and flexibility. I want to be able to keep a straight leg when I bend over to pick something up off the ground, I want to be healthy and strong so that my girls want to be healthy and strong, and most importantly, I want to look like Gwyneth when I'm 42 (if at all possible). But also, and probably mostly importantly- I am realizing that habits need to start. If I want to be a healthy, active Gwyneth-like grandmother, I need to be forming those habits now, as best I can.

A few weeks ago I tried to do a Tracy Anderson post-pregnancy workout video  on Youtube but the missionaries showed up and killed that vibe real quick. And then I did the 7 min workout maybe twice but mostly I just wondered and wondered how I could get in a really good habit while I snuck peanut m&m's out of my freezer all day. But then, then Jenna piped up about how she wanted to be serious about getting in shape and would anyone else want to do that to? I'm telling you, I never thought I would need an online fitness support group but I DO. We started this week with 2 simple daily goals for Monday thru Friday- one for fitness, one for diet. There is something about the daily change that makes the goals super attainable (for me). For instance: no sugar one day but this at 12:01 am the next day!!! ((((bad advice, I realize that)))


I haven't felt more excited or more committed about getting strong ever, ever. And on top of that, I now have 90 other women that I'm counting on and are counting on me! Alllllllll this is to say: come join our group.

Here is a peep at our weekly plan...


On Monday's we try to do a short, high intensity workout (like the 7 min workout) 3 times + making sure 3 meals include greens. Tuesday's are sugar free and squat full (50 squats is the goal. I did a set of ten every time I put in a load of laundry and ended up with 80 by the of the day). Wednesday's goals are 64 oz of water and a walk or run. Thursday is eating paleo + a yoga video and Friday is fish and a free weight video... which is basically exactly what it says up there BUT the point is it's easy, it's doable, and I'm totally convinced we will all be Gwyneths at 42 if we do the damn thing. Quote me on it.

  1. Just joined. At 8 weeks postpartum with baby #4, it's time. I'm in the same boat, I just want to be strong again. 4 pregnancies in 5 years took a toll! Good luck, lady!

  2. I'm joining! I also started map my run app which puts pressure on you to run by shaming your sorry buns if you haven't logged a workout in a while.. Nothing beats the pressure of some random app.

  3. Yessssss. Love this. Seems very do-able. I've been wanting to join a fitness group on Facebook, but they all seem to involve really expensive videos/diet plans. I'm like, huh? No.

  4. I realized when I was straining to put the dutch oven with roast into the oven and had to call my husband over to help me…I realized that I HAD to start getting some muscles. So I'm doing free weights, squats and rrhhyjg6tg6r7ghi nihku8krhkkhutikhhjkhhploop889;e98k;o00 (four year old helping me type) and calf raises. I am also *hoping* to walk once a week? Pathetic. Whatever! I'm not on Facebook. I woul[d love the support. I guess I am making my life harder by not being on ol' FB. \\\\\\\ Ok, excessive toddler participation. done. very done._
