Worked out 20 days in May!!!
MAY 2011 HEALTHY LIFESTYLE HIGHLIGHTS (HLH): Concentrate on the little things; they're the ones that encourage you to keep on moving to achieve your goals.
5/1/2011 - ran 20 consecutive minutes and lifted weights! haven't run 30 consecutive minutes in years! also ate very healthy!
5/2/2011 - 30 day shred after another extremely stressful day and didn't even take a 10 second break! I felt sooo much stronger than last Sunday when I did it last! I didn't breathe as hard as I did last time as well!
5/3/2011 - I feel GREAT today! Last week, I was in pain for 3 days after I did the 30DS, and after doing it yesterday, I don't hurt at all! I'm getting stronger! Also, hopefully I'm not imagining it, but I feel my work pants fitting slightly better. : ) THIRD consecutive workout day!!!
5/4/2011 - Didn't feel the greatest today, but still ate very well and went for a 30 minute walk! I cooked and didn't overindulge while cooking. Typically I would've ate while I cooked, but I was very good. : )
5/5/2011 - Joined a 12 week stress cycling class and found younger people in the class (not what I expected)! Actually woke up at 5am!!! Never thought I could do this a month ago, but April was a GREAT month!
5/6/2011 - went out for a drink and only had a cup of popcorn, though the whole bowl was full and it was delicious popcorn
5/7/2011 - 35 mile bike ride and burned over 1,500 calories, can't complain. : ) only took one break! did this same bike ride last summer, and I was crying because I was in so much pain. I'M STRONG AGAIN!!! :D Burned over 2,000 calories after going out dancing tonight!!! It was SO much fun!!! LOVE girls' night!
5/8/2011 - First time I've seen the 50s since October last year!!!! Feeling great!!!!
5/9/2011 - Stopped eating when I felt full and didn't clean off my plate. It felt very uncomfortable, but confortable at the same time. Weird feeling. I did end up doing the 30 day shred (late night shred at 11)!
5/10/2011 - Rode my bike to work! Beautiful weather out! 60 degrees! Double workout today, ran in the evening! : )
5/11/2011 - Robbyn and I were both late to the Hip Hop Groove at 6am, but we went on a 40 minute walk still! Took as many walking opportunities as I could today! Met my future roomie!!!
5/12/2011 - Went out for a drink again and did pretty well! Stayed under 1,600! : )
5/13/2011 - Worked out at 6:30am even after a night out the night before! If that doesn't scream dedicated, I don't know what does!
5/16/2011 - Found a place to live that I LOVE! Did the 30 day shred!
