3 Things To Help Get My Butt In Gear

Get In Shape

Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m not just focusing on my butt, but the whole package. I don’t plan to share my goal, but will say it has nothing to do with weight. For the first time in my adult life, I actually like my body, but it definitely could use a tune up. I hope you enjoy my short and somewhat absurd list of things that will help me get moving.

New Shoes

I’m a firm believer – you can never have too many shoes! I ordered Chacos today so I have the proper attire for outdoor hiking.


I’ve been down this road before, but I’m giving it another shot. There are a few outdoor activities that are a nightmare to do while wearing glasses so I ordered contacts for jogging, chilling in the ocean, boxing, etc.

Athletic Clothing

Items to be purchased or stolen include the following:

  • Long Sleeve, Breathable Jacket – I want to keep my arms covered whenever outdoors.
  • Tight Fitting Jogging Pants – No explanation needed.
  • Sports bra – My boobs aren’t big enough to matter, but I don’t want to offend anyone in my new neighborhood.
  • Bathing Suit – It’s hard to swim laps or get physical in the ocean with my current gear.

With all that being said, I contacted a dear friend and personal trainer who spent the evening with me discussing motivation and goals. I feel confident in my ability to get moving and will use this photo as inspiration…

Just Kidding!

I hope this post motivates you get your butt in gear OR do a little shopping via the DDG Amazon link. I’ll be sure to update you along the journey. I might even scare you with a photo or God forbid – a video.
