What's your first fitness goal?

I'm really looking forward to getting back into working out. After experiencing a miscarriage doctor wanted me to take this pregnancy easy. I'm so grateful to be pregnant and cannot wait to meet LO, but I am ready to jump into fitness.

I've already signed up for a 5k in July. It's more of a fun run to raise money for a children's hospital so I figure there's no pressure to run the race fast. But what I really cannot wait for is to get back into pole dancing and aerial silks. After learning I was pregnant I had to quit my job as a pole dancing (for fitness) instructor and I miss it quite a lot. And for Christmas my DH had bought me my own silks. They are hanging in my house and it has been torture not to be able to use them.

And maybe this is too ambitious (LO will always come first) but I am considering competing in another Bikini Fitness Competition in October... 

Just curious, what are other people's fitness goals or activities that they cannot wait to get back into?

    So my first goal is to get back to my pre

  • My immediate fitness goals include just getting back into running shape - about two months before I got pregnant I fell while running and managed to slip some discs and pull my hamstring.  I want to get healthy enough to get back to trail running, no

  • Oh, and to the OP, I took pole classes for a while for fitness and that KICKED MY BUTT!  Holy buckets, I was sore and bruised all over!  A friend of mine does both pole and ariels, and that is some intense work.  I'm impressed, and bet you

  • Ugh, TB just ate my response.

    Long story short: I can't wait to get back to running!!! Pre-pregnancy, I ran 6 days a week and would always run a spring and fall marathon or half-marathon, and I can't wait to get back to it! Not just back into rac
