So far I’ve been pretty great about following my NewYear’s resolutions which, quite frankly, is a bit shocking, but exciting nevertheless. However, I’ve noticed that I am quite out of shape. I’ve been going to hot yoga three times a week and it is incredibly fun and challenging, and I’ve noticed the difference in my muscle tone, flexibility, and core strength already.
But I come from an extremely athletic background; I played soccer for sixteen years and was a sprinter for as long as I can remember. I even ran track at Boston College, a NCAA Division I program my freshman year. When I quit (for academic reasons, I picked up a second major and a minor) I went cold turkey; it felt great not having to train six days a week year round. Now, I get winded running up my snowy backyard with Tinkerbelle—not exactly a healthy state for my body.
So I’m writing it here because once it is published I have to follow through: I, Kait, will get back into (aerobic) shape by exercising at least twice a week at a minimum. There. Now you all have to hold me to it!
I also went for a quick hike in the woods today, here are a few pictures. It is always fun to play ‘spot the puppy!’

Aw, Tinkerbelle is soo cute and your photography skills are awesome! I just found your blog and wanted to say hello, so: Hello :).
Good luck with your fitness goal! Regarding your athletic past I'm sure you'll be back in shape in no time. Also, I like that you don't want to overdo it – at least two times a week is definitely healthier than every day.
