to paraphrase Winnie the Pooh: "Mind over matter makes the bear unfatter" and that seems to be where I'm at right now. Letting my mind guide my body to do what it otherwise might not because I'm so sick of feeling "fluffy" that I just have to do something about it.
To recap, my goals are:
1 - to continue running 3 times a week
**This one's easy because I love my half marathon group and I hate it when I don't make it out for a run with them.
2 - to lose my last five pregnancy pounds
**This one is NOT so easy. I did, however, lose another pound as of Wednesday. That brings me down to four gone as of June 1. Four more to go.
3 - to blog my progress every Saturday
**Aside from being a day late... lalalalala
4 - to drink eight 8 oz glasses of water a day
**It's been kind of hot here. I've been going above and beyond on this one.
5 - to sleep 7 hours a night
**Hit or miss. I usually get 7 but not straight. I've had four or five nights so I'm not complaining.
6 - to add two- days of strength training to my week
**Boot camp on Tuesday & Thursday kicked my butt. I attribute the lose of pounds and inches to this class.
7 - to add one day of yoga/stretching to my week
oops. Maybe this coming week....
I've been running my Mother to blood tests and doc appointments so my mornings are kind of shot. I'm getting lots of cardio and *some* ST but no yoga yet. It'll be my thing to work on this week.
So, yes, this is kind of a weird photo to post and, yes, I was a little weirded out when my son's friend took it BUT it shows that my hard work's paying off. My arms look tighter and my waist is looking trimmer. I feel good about things.
