I feel great!

Did my Sunday morning workout. 40 minutes on the bike, then Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown level 2. My first time doing it and got through the whole thing! It was definitely a challenge, but I feel awesome for having done it.

I still have energy for the afternoon. No nap today!

Thursday weigh-in

Weighed in today at 138! I am 12 pounds down since the beginning of September. My mini goal is to hit 135 this month.
Pounds lost is a quick metric to measure progress, butI realize that as I continue to shed fat and gain muscle the number on the scale will become less important.
My ultimate goal is to eliminate my tummy fat, and to become lean and strong. Dropping clothing sizes, seeing the visual changes in my body, and becoming stronger in my workouts will be the true measure of progress.

It's an exciting journey and I feel confident that I will meet my goals!

Back on track!

After a week of blahs, I'm back on track! Did Fat Burning Ab Attack last night. Weighed in this morning at 139.5! My calorie tracker projects that I will hit my goal of 135 on November 28, the day after Thanksgiving. This amuses me, as the day after Thanksgiving is the worst day of the year to weigh oneself!
Feeling healthy and energetic this morning. I think I got away with just a few days of aches and fatigue instead of the full blown nasty cold so many of my coworkers have. Perhaps the exercise is boosting my immune system?

Did 6 sets of biceps curls this morning!  3 basic and 3 zottman. I'm noticing new muscles!

Had a rough week or so, fitness wise. Last week of the month was period time, and I felt cruddy most of the week. Then I went away for the weekend. Then this week I've been fighting the cold going around work.

My workouts were lighter over the past week. I did not meet my October goal by the 31st. But....I hit it today!
