STEP 1: Join a gym. Preferably a real expensive one with all the amenities of a resort and a cost that will never be worth the few times you go.
(They don't all have to be expensive. My husband and I go to Vasa Fitness for a reasonable price.)
STEP 2: Weigh and measure yourself to get a starting point. Then cry over ice cream because you really let yourself go.
STEP 3: Create a workout playlist of all your favorite songs. Spend as much time as you can on it, probably during the hour that would be best spent at the gym.
(You can check out my Spotify playlist of workout songs by CLICKING HERE.)
STEP 4: Download all of the fitness and dieting apps and buy all the products so you're well prepared.
(Got to get those Fitbit steps in. Also, the above Gif is from "The IT Crowd" which is on Netflix, go check it out.)
STEP 5: Create a Pinterest board with hundreds of workouts and dieting tips that you'll forget about and never use.
(I'm compulsively on Pinterest every night before bed. You can look at my fitness board by CLICKING HERE.)
STEP 6: Start a new Instagram account for all your #GymSelfies.
(I'm guilty of this for sure and you can view them all on my second Instagram account @kayleeshealthylife)
STEP 7: Share all your weight loss and fitness goals on social media so everyone else can know how good you are.
STEP 8: After a good workout reward yourself with some chocolate. You earned it.
(Can I just be Taylor Swift in a crown? Please?)
STEP 9: Tweet about your workout. If it's not on social media, it didn't happen.
(Shameless Twitter plug, @cowgirl_kaylee)
STEP 10: Repeat the above steps over and over again until your magically fit.
Yes, yes, I'm very funny. But in all honesty, this has been my understanding of health goals. Health and fitness goals are hard. So ridiculously hard. We make goals that seem possible in the beginning, but the work and time we have to put into it can be overwhelming.
Mondays on this blog are now all about health and fitness. This doesn't just include physical health. As someone who has depression and works to raise more awareness about the seriousness of mental health, my Monday health posts will include mental, emotional, and physical. We should always be growing our brains as well as our bodies, and learning to help our emotions work for us instead of against us.
All my life I have wanted to help people and I've decided that now is the time to do something about it. I am not perfect. I have many struggles, insecurities, and make mistakes daily. But I know I'm not alone. We are not alone and if we work together, we are capable of anything. We are a team, the Dancing Cow Team, and together we can help make ourselves and the world better.
Monday health posts are not all set in stone, they may not start immediately, but by the end of the year, they should be a consistent thing. As always, I'm grateful for my amazing blog readers because, without you, this idea would never have happened. I love you all, more than I can express.
