Oh, it’s been a whirlwind of a month and I’m thinking that March isn't going to be much different. I was asked to be a part of Revolt and that starts on Monday. However; I had some super great news that came via email which will take up quite a bit of my time come April and run through September. More on that later as I’m not allowed to disclose the information yet. Saturday (tomorrow –eek!) is my first core fitness class. Let’s just say a lot of things are happening on the fitness front and I may have to reprioritize come April.
I made all my food this week on Sunday and have been very diligent with my foods. Turning down cookie offers …. and even chip offers (okay, I might have had one. Because I can eat only one.)! I don’t see a huge difference between last month and this month but once that
diet change in eating behavior really takes hold, I think we’ll see a huge difference. I put out my bikini to remind me that I don’t want to be wearing that thing with a muffin top twelve weeks from now. Yes, another bikini countdown reminder.
This weekend I’ll be running my 5 miler for 5 by 5. I tried to get a few miles in this week so I wasn't running cold. Hmmm….is that even proper running verbiage? I’m not sure. I’m also training for an 8K race. And even though I’m already running 5 miles this one is “live”. You know; with people around me and all. So I’m wondering if I should focus on increasing my speed so they aren't standing around wondering what the heck happened to me OR if I should increase my distance so that five miles doesn't feel that hard. Runners? Can anyone give me a clue? I’ll also start running outside when there is no snow so I can get used to it. But seriously, no snow.
Please ignore the fact that my pants don't fit!
I'm seeing some slight progress. It's hard to tell from the side because for whatever reason I posed this month instead of relaxing. In all honesty I walk around like that all the time. hahaha! Okay, that wasn't honest. Early April Fools.
My weight is down a couple of pounds and my body fat went from 26.9 to 25.4% which is a loss of 1.5%. My goal was 2% but sine I wasn't eating that well until last week, I'm pretty thrilled with this. Now wouldn't it be great if we could just control where that fat came from? Sorry, folks, there's no such thing as spot reduction.
In February I'm loving....
My calves! It was hard as heck to take a picture of them on my own but I think you'll get the gist.
I do not do specific exercises for my calves because they are so muscular without it. When I've tried doing specific exercises for them I look like someone stuck the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man on The Incredible Hulks legs. Not very appealing When I wear heels you can really see the diamond shape to them. Now if only the rest of my body would cooperate!
What are you loving about yourself this month? Can you help me with my running question? Can you believe it's March?!?
