Day 3!

Thursday, January 03, 2013

That's right, I'm making good on my fitness streak goal. The past couple of days I've explored my gym's brand new pool! Swimming has ALWAYS been a passion of mine, so it feels good to get back in to do what I love. It's easier on my joints and it keeps me occupied for 30-45 minutes without the secret, silent wish that somehow the time would fly and my workout would be over (treadmill, I'm looking your direction).

While I was at the gym last night, I decided to sign up for the Y-Fit Challenge. I will be assigned to a team of 5-6 people. Every Wednesday we'll get together for a class (nutrition information, exercise, physical challenges). There will be tracking of food and exercise, accountability, AND I'll meet some cool new people that also frequent my gym. If I lose the most weight I'll win some prizes. I couldn't pass it up. Will definitely be blogging about my experiences.

After tracking my food yesterday, I realized that I went way overboard with sodium. Definitely going to keep my eye on that for the next few days, and make sure that I'm getting PLENTY of water.
