Work out Wednesday: Ship Shapeless

I am linking up with Kenji's Workout Wednesdays with Kenji! 

I have been on a mission this year to reclaim me. After what I would describe as my Job year in 2013 I let myself go...really go. I hadn't ever been "in shape" but I was taking care of myself somewhat and paid attention to getting dressed, hygiene, exercise, etc. I gained a lot of weight last year and struggled to present myself...at all. 

This year I started out by remembering first and foremost that...

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I had to turn back over what is rightfully His. I have been bought with a price, the blood of my Savior and I want, desire, long to bring glory through it. 

Next I needed a plan. It as been slow going...but it is going!  

I started out by completing a 21 day Fix and loved most of it! See my post here. All together I lost 12 pounds on that journey. It was hard but it helped in so many areas! 

My latest attempt is calorie counting. I have given a half hearted attempt these past two weeks but I have tried to kick it into high gear! I have deiced to give it a good 30 day shot like I did the fix and will probably give Whole 30 a chance here soon. 

So, plans for the next month! 

- I am going to give Calorie counting a good 30 day kick! Take it as a competition between the fix and this! Which one is going to win! 
- Workouts have been a mix of fast pace walking and fitness blender workouts. Which, shameless plug...completely WORTH it! 
- DRINKING lots of water! I have really let this slip...

So there's my plan! We will see how it works! 


  1. I'm so glad you linked up! Last year was a tough year for me too. This year is different! We have to trust in the Lord and put Him first and all things will fall into place. We will struggle but in the end we will rise. I loved the 21 day fix when I did it!! I suggest that to everyone! I can't what to hear the updates in the months to come!!

    1. Thank you for making the link up! I am glad to have found it! I loved the fix and what it did for my relationship with food (will address that next week!) but I have found that trying different things really help me to stay focused and not get bored! I'm ridiculous! =)
      Looking forward to keep up with your progress!
