Still going strong!!

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Whew! I'm SO glad I'm on vacation so I get this awesome opportunity to focus on my health and fitness! Each and everyday I'm getting stronger and increasing my endurance! I get excited to see what numbers I can pull and I'm looking forward to that 1 month weigh in. I'm not weighing in before that because I know my weight can be affected by all kinds of things and I don't want to be like hubby who said this afternoon, "After a week of no soda and going to the gym everyday I've not lost a single pound!" In my opinion, he's not pushing himself as hard as he could and isn't making the best nutrition choices. They're better than they were and he has given up soda where he was easily drinking 4-5 a day, but he could be making better choices. Plus, he doesn't get all this extra time this week like I do to work out and make all of my meals at home...aaahhh vacation! :D We did our first day of strength training at the gym yesterday and it was a bit light, so today we amped it up and did a bit more weights than the program at the gym told us to. I did a few extra machines that weren't on the list, like the one that works your love handles and (of course) the one that works your thighs! That one's KILLER! Anyway, I think I'm doing so well with this program because I surround myself with nothing but motivation and inspiration! I can track all of my progress on the gym's website, my video game on their website and of course I can combine all of that plus my food intake here on spark people! If you're a bit OCD like me and like to micromanage everything I would suggest doing something similar!
