February results/ March planning

Saturday, March 01, 2014

emoticon I'm down a little more than 5 pounds for the month of February!

My progress this time around isn't as fast as it was last time, but I'm actually fine with that. These changes I'm making are for a lifetime, so there's no rush. I'm savoring the journey and celebrating every ounce that I lose along the way!

That being said, I've noticed that my strength training efforts have really slipped over the last month. I love me some cardio, but I'm not quite as fond of ST for some reason. I know that ST is really important, though, and I'm not just talking about weight loss. It's important to keep our muscles healthy so that we don't lose muscle mass as we age. It's also beneficial for our bones! Plus it boosts metabolism, and seriously- the list goes on. And I know it. So it's time to give my own booty a lil kick and get back to it!


In that spirit, my goal for March is to not only make sure I get a minimum of 180 cardio minutes in each week, but also a minimum of 90 minutes of ST.


Lastly, I just want to thank you, my Spark friends, for all of your encouragement and positive energy. You teach me so much, you make me laugh, and you keep me moving forward. I am so grateful for SP and my wonderful Spark family!

    Awesome job Amy!!!! So proud of you!
Maybe if we combined into one SUPER Amy, we'd be just fine. You can do all the cardio you want and I'll do the ST. lol That's BY FAR my favorite. If it weren't for the fact that I need lung capacity to be able to strength train, cardio would absolutely fall by the wayside. lol

    Awesome job! I like your goal of aiming for a minimum amount of strength training this month. I find it really hard to power through strength training as well! Good luck!
