Looking for support and motivation!

Hi everyone! I’m in between jobs, it’s been pretty dang tough. I have too much time on my hands and been stuck in a rut. I’m trying to work on taking care of my body and mind. Looking for some fitness pals and a supportive community! Current goals are to increase my strength and tone up. What’s your fitness goal(s)?!

    I’ve been here for about 6 weeks. Once I set a calorie goal, it was amazing how much I was overeating!!! I’ve lost 5lbs in the last 6 weeks. I’ve also added 1 extra day of just cardio/week, along with strength training. So far it’s been fairly easy. I’m glad you’re here! I’ll send you a FR!!

    For me I want to build muscle and just stay in shape. Working out/training has been instilled in me for years so it’s just something I do now and have a passion for it. Stay motivated. Eventually it will get easier and become more of a good habit that you enjoy

    Me too...though I have '4 months to lose 20 lbs' goal...close enough. How is your progress? Which marathon are you going to sign up for?
