Making Strides (no pun intended!)
Thursday, October 17, 2013
Sometimes I get really sucked into numbers. Tonight would be one of those times, lol. But, than again, those same number show me I AM doing a rocking job. I have worked out five days and tracked everyday for the last seven days. The last three days I have stayed in range!
Now tracking doesn't seem like a big deal but it IS! Tracking feels so tedious. But, I am doing it. Because I know Sparkpeople works and this weight has to GO!
Even more so, I am super proud of how much stronger my body is getting. It is simply amazing how it can get stronger with endurance everyday. I think it was August that I started with lunch workouts which gives me 20 minutes to do my workout. In the beginning, those 20 minutes were challenging. Now, those same 20 minutes are easy and I wish I could just keep going and not have to quit. Just the other day I did 40 minutes on the elliptical. A couple months ago, my calves would tire in like 10 minutes. It's just a great feeling!
Right now, I have two memberships (1 paid, 1 free). The free one ends at the end of December so I am strategizing how I am going to consistently get my workout in. I like the idea of becoming a morning workout gal. But, that seems nearly impossible.
I am considering going for a run on my lunch hour on Wednesdays and Fridays. Than, I'd do a pilates at a gym nearby. It's $7.00/class. I could do that once a week. I would have to leave in work out clothes and honestly, I don't know if my boss knows if I work out during lunch. When I first got hired, I asked about taking a hour to work out and he said I'd have to take PTO. I found a way to make it fit into lunch. It's that important!
Anyhow, there's a small update!
