It’s been a little over a year since I started getting serious about my health and fitness. I’ve been a yo-yo dieter and half-hearted exerciser for as long as I can remember, losing and gaining the same 10 or more pounds year after year. Since I started going to fitness boot camp last year I’ve slowly begun to take my health more seriously, and I now feel more fit than I have in a long time. I’ve gotten a little leaner, a little faster and a lot more toned. I’m still not where I want to be, weight-wise, and I still struggle with bouts of laziness and wanting to eat nothing but ice cream, but I’ve come a long way, baby.
Peak 313–Health and fitness from a Christian perspective
Skinny Taste–One of my favorite sites for healthy, low calorie REAL food (plus the food photography is gorgeous)
100 Days of Real Food--One family’s commitment to eating real, non-processed food as much as possible
Chilly Pad Super Cooling Towel–I got this for my birthday and it is incredible! Keeps me nice and cool during boot camp, especially on these scorching summer mornings.
Spibelt--I like this running belt much better than an armband. It’s small but expands quite nicely to fit my phone and keys, plus it’s lightweight and adjustable so it won’t slip.
That’s just a quick rundown of a few things that I’ve found helpful. What about you–any great books, websites, apps or other resources that have helped you get fit and stay that way?
