How was your March? Mine was pretty fantastic!
It started off with my niece being born! Yay! She's my first niece/nephew and my parent's first grandchild so it's all very exciting! My brother and sister-in-law live in Israel (along with the rest of my family) so I won't get to see her until May, but I've seen pictures and have seen her on Skype and she's such a doll! I can't wait to meet her!
As for fitness/nutrition news, March went really well! I stayed on track with my eating (except for a couple of special occasions/dinners with friends) and followed my fitness plan diligently! I burned 10,000 calories this month which is a huge accomplishment for me, and I worked out for over 1000 minutes this month (which is something I haven't done since August)! So really it was a great month!
And with all that work I got to see some results too! I lost a total of 5 lbs this month and finally got under 160lbs, which I haven't been since September!
Now I just have to keep it going! April has started off well. My eating has been a little off track (too many cravings) but today I'm getting back on the wagon! I have about 3 more months until my first dress fitting and I want to look fabulous by then (and hopefully weigh about 145lbs)! I'm still waiting a bit before I try my dress on again, I'm really scared that it won't fit, so I'll give it until the end of April (fingers crossed!).
OH, I almost forgot to mention what a great motivation the Spring 5% challenge has been so far! The Awesome A Team rocks and I'm really happy to get to know all these wonderful new Spriends (coined by BIGBROTHER323)
Here's to a great April!
P.S. I'm loving this Spring weather (well except for the rain today), it's been so nice out and I LOVE that the days are longer!
