|Going to lift some weights!!|
When a new year starts I don't usually hit the gym on January 1 but this year I did. I met up with a personal trainer to get a good 30 minute full body workout. I was very sweaty when I got done. After the sweat session I meet up with my girls for a 3 mile run. This is the first time we have all gotten together for a run since the Marshall Marathon. We had a great run and we chit chatted the whole time.
When I got home Jim and I took our measurements. We measured our:
Left Bicep 13in.
Left Thigh 28in.
I'm hoping to see some major changes in the next few months!! Honestly I am really scared of putting my weight on here because It has gone up. But I have to be honest with myself and you to stay accountable. It's been at least a year since it has gone up to the 2's. I'm thankful it's only .6 over. I'm glad I didn't wait any longer to get back on the wagon!! My plan is to eat clean and workout 5-7 days a week. I'm going to really focus on lifting weights this year. I'm at a point where I need to change a lot of things. Running cannot be my only exercise. I'm going to add spin classes, kettle bell class, circuit class, and a lot of weight lifting. Plus I will be getting back in the pool.
Another major change will be my eating. I think that is what is really holding me back. I love sweets!! I eat sweets when I'm happy, sad, angry, mad, bored, which means I eat them all the time! It's going to be tough but I need to be strong to get this weight off!! I use the app myfitnesspal, I love it!! My plan is to track everything with it. All I have to do is scan the bar code of the item and it tracks it for me. It is very easy! I just have to be honest with it and enter everything I eat. It can really work! I am really looking forward to all the changes.
What changes are you planning on making?
Do you love or like sweets?
