It's been awhile since I last blogged, but I've been very good about staying on track with going to the gym and weight. This morning I weighed 166.8 lbs...woohoo!!! My goal was to get to 165 by the end of August, which I didn't make, but what is one pound? I'm getting to the point that losing anything is getting more and more difficult.
I am happy with my progress so far, but would LOVE to get rid of my belly and love handles. It's just not that easy!
I have been begun to think about signing up for a yoga or pilates class to help strength my core and work with on my flexibility. It may take a little bit of convincing of myself to follow-through, because I get so nervous about doing things like this. On of my personal goals that I still to work on is that self confidence. I did buy two journals to start journaling things I'm grateful for and positive things that happened during the day. I'm using one journal to record these, and can't remember what I bought the other one for...LOL! I haven't been very consistent with my journaling though. But I've learned that it takes me some time to make something regular, for example the gym! This is the first time that I've been so consistent about going to the gym.
This entry has been a little confusing I'm sure, but I just wanted to recap things briefly. Overall things are going well....my weight is down and staying that way. Attending the gym on a consistent routine.
Areas I need/could still work on:
1. body mass index...still a little higher than I like
2. journaling...need to do it more
3. sign up for a yoga/pilates class...to work on core strength and flexibility
4. being more social....need to get out there if I plan on meeting someone
5. keeping house/yard clean....need to be more consistent about keeping it clean and organized at all times
I'm sure there is more I'll think of after I close this blog
6. Change my work out routine to focus on specific body parts
(chest, back, legs, shoulders, arms, abs) during a workout. The thought is to work on chest and back, abs at one gym visit and then legs and shoulders, abs at the next visit. Of course cardio would follow each session and then 1 hour cardio every third day. So my gym routine would be: Day 1: arms/legs/abs 30 minutes cardio, Day 2: chest/back/abs 30 minutes cardio, Day 3: 1 hour cardio, Repeat.
As you see 6. was after the last I closed the blog....It was exactly as I thought, as soon as I closed the blog I remembered my goal of scheduling body specific workouts!
