Happy last day of September! The weather has been really nice and a bit cool. However, it is supposed to go back up to 85 this week so I hope I don't get sick again!! I reached my 1,500 fitness goal minutes for the month! I am so happy. I didn't think I would be able to do it because I was sick at the beginning of the month. Since I made it, I would like to reach the same for next month! I am still doing kickboxing twice a week and pilates once a week. I have 8 more pilates classes left. I did two Tower classes. I want to try a newbies Spin & Barre class. It should be different & I hear spin is hard!
I have a 5K race with two friends on 10/26. I haven't been training as much as I would like to! I at least want to go out a few times before the race. I have been doing a lot of cardio, but running feels so different! Hopefully the race will be easier for me since I have been doing a lot more exercise on a regular basis, but I still need to jog to get my feet and legs used for the race!
It has been a few months since I did a season Spark challenge. I signed up for the 5% Fall Challenge. Hopefully it will help me lose some weight. Maybe I will even reach my weight loss goal by the end of it. I don't know when the challenge starts, but I am excited about it!
Review of September:
I have been having healthier snacks which is good. I still have the random craving for popcorn or tortilla chips though. I give in sometimes, but not as often! My weight is still fluctuating like crazy, but I am trying not to get discouraged about it. I have been better with eating breakfast around the same time every day. This has helped me be less grumpy! I try to eat before I get hungry. I notice I get headaches and feel cranky when I don't eat! I didn't get to see a few friends I wanted to this month, so I am planning a few get-togethers next month. If they can't make it, I am still going to do something fun without them!
