Adventures of In-Between...

Hello and Happy Spring!

So... I know it's been a while. It's good to be back sparking!

I am at a funny place. Really, an in-between state.

I have actually gained weight - but I am not at all surprised or dismayed.

I still have plenty of extra "cushioning" - but I've also noticed something else:

Muscle definition. My shoulders have gained the most muscle and that "broad" look actually makes the rest of me look more in proportion.

What I am working on next is regulating my food intake.

Of course, the 7-pound gain probably had something to do with family in town last week and eating three meals out in a row. Ugh!

I cannot believe that I once ate restaurant food (Pizza Hut, Denny's, Red Robin, etc.) twice a day, EVERY day for over a year-and-a-half!!

Naturally, eating normally again will take care of some of that. But, it's funny; When you start altering, quite literally, what your body is made up of (more muscle and less fat) the eating gets a little wonky and out of whack for a while.

So, I am back on SparkPeople and I'll monitor my calories a little more carefully while I continue my weight training.

I love the way my body looks and feels and I know that very soon, I will be able to run, climb, hike and do everyday tasks much more easily and with greater enjoyment!

Blessings to you all!
