A Month of Intensity
Sunday, April 28, 2013
With everything that's been going on in the world and in my own life, it's been a pretty intense month. Sometimes it feels petty and silly to be caring about whether I am down a pound or up 3 pounds...
But I do! I've been frustrated because I feel like I am doing pretty much everything right and still the numbers on the scale keep bouncing between the same two numbers. I guess I'm toning up because I'm back in my favorite jeans....alright, just barely and as long as I take care to hide the muffin top! But I am taking encouragement from that.
At the end of the week I'll go back over my goals from this month and see what needs changing. Maybe I need to do measurements every week rather than once a month. And I know I have not been strength training as much as I wanted to. I just don't enjoy it but I know I need to do more. I wish I had a way to make it easier or a friend to do it with. My regular exercise buddy (for almost 20 years now!) really hates it. We run, walk and do yoga but I cannot get her into the gym for ST. I love yoga too but I know it doesn't replace ST for preventing injury. Hmmm, have to think about this...suggestions are welcome!
Went on a 30 mile bike ride today and it was tiring but felt really good! I've been thinking about riding my bike to work on Fridays so I wanted to be sure I could do it. Well, I did!
Have a great week, Sparkfriends!
