Checking in: 100 w/ Sparkpeople, My Red Belt, Yoga, and More
Sunday, January 27, 2013
It's been forever since I wrote a blog here, and I apologize. I hit 100 and then some, but then the holidays happened, so I floated around that one pound before I hit 100 pounds lost with SparkPeople. I'm happy to say yesterday the scale started moving back in the right direction.
December saw a lot of fitness goals hit. I managed the Santa Hustle 5K in under 30 minutes and I successfully tested up to my red belt in karate. I am really enjoying karate and the inner strength it is giving me. I feel calmer and more toned. Plus, I could kick someone's butt if I really needed to.
To help with karate and core strength, I decided to try a yoga class this morning. I really enjoyed it. I'm going to try a few more during this introductory week, and I hope to eventually try hot yoga in a few weeks. Sorry, wallet.
I also agreed to try and run the Disney Princess Half Marathon next February with my cousin. It's a good goal to have and something to work toward. We'll see how training goes. Hopefully my body (and life) won't get in the way.
I'm slowly getting used to this new size, and I am slowly feeling less self conscious when I go shopping for clothes. I'm loving the new me, and I can't wait to see what 2013 has to offer!
One step forward!
