Welcome to my blog!!

Welp, here goes.....not sure how I'll do at this but I'll give it a whirl! Hope you enjoy. "Yearning to be Average" has to do with my desire & goal to just be an average size person.

It's a lifestyle change.....or supposed to be anyway!

Just checking in, have been SO sporadic in my workouts lately!  I am down about 10 lbs from the weight I had gained back, with about 10-11 more to go.   I have tried to get some form of exercise most days even if it is just a walk in the neighborhood.  That being said, I still need to get back in my weight routine especially - I can tell such a (negative) difference in how my body feels this year.  I am not toned, more cellulite on my legs and arms, just don't feel as strong.  The past couple weekends I've done a couple runs (4 miles and 3 miles, respectively) so I feel good cardio-wise for the most part but my weight training has suffered.  Oh and I HAVE to stop snacking on Oreos!! 

A lot of this I think is partly due to it being baseball season - I'm up late with games for Isaiah; but also it's just that my routine has changed.  Rob is a night owl and I have not been one for a long time.  So if I am with him, I tend to stay up later which of course, makes me miss the gym in the morning because the odds are, I'm not going to go to the gym on 4 hours of sleep!  haha

I should make it more of a priority though and that is my plan; I can still wear my shorts from last year but I'm a little embarrassed about how my legs look and that bums me out.  I know that will change though with some work and consistency!

One good thing, Rob is buying a house after renting for a couple years following his divorce.  There is a planet fitness within 1.5 miles of the new house - woo-hoo!  That is a good thing for me, assuming down the road within a couple years I may end up there as well.  :)
