Good for you!

And you are getting in some serious exercise each week. You should be proud of what you are accomplishing!

On the eating front, nowhere as good as I'd like.
However, on the exercise front, I've gotten back into the groove of things and am getting in 45-60 min. 5-6x/week.

I plan to take my nutrition to the next level starting in February. I realize that trying to fix the exercise and eating at the same time was too overwhelming.

You are so smart. Just put away that scale for a few months, enjoy the tape measure going down and watch the muscle definition develop!

I have seen the Perfect Push-up and it looks hard! I was so proud of being able to do 15 "girl" pushups, but using that - no way! Keep it up, you are doing great!

I'm chugging along. Maintaining/gaining muscle isn't as easy as I thought it'd be. Well...I didn't think it'd be easy. But I thought that the scale going up wouldn't bother me as much as it does! I'm specifically trying to build muscle, so it's going to go up, but for some reason, it still gets to me! My measurements are going down, but for some reason my brain refuses to accept that. So the hard part, is just getting myself to not care what the scale says. (putting it away would probably help, huh? lol)

I got the perfect push up for Christmas. That's much harder than I thought it would be too! But slowly I've been able to do about a set of 5. One set of five, isn't where I thought I'd be! But one day I'll make it to a full set of 12, and then some day after that two sets! It's just slow going. But slow and steady wins the race!

MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs

5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!

If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!

FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.

Are you keeping up with your goals/challenges/ resolutions? Any great accomplishments? And tough spots you weren't expecting?

I have done well with getting 30 minutes of cardio per day, have kept my steps up there (over 125 miles so far!), and am tracking my food faithfully. The down-side is that I am still not losing weight. Oh well, I AM healthier!
