Fitness Update

Just so you know...I did eat a salad for lunch!!!    Just wanted to update you on my fitness progress.   I have been completing my 30/30/30 challenge by trying to work out 4 days instead of 3 days a week.   I won't lie it isn't easy.   I would love to stay in bed and sleep a little extra but I drag myself out, put on my sweats, sports bra, shirt and tennis shoes.  All my critters and husband is sound asleep and I am in the living room doing the 30 minute run on Wii Fit Plus.     I just jog in place for 30 minutes.  I usually listen to a book while jogging.  It passes the time!

On Wednesday nights and Saturday morning, I try to make it to deep water running at the gym.  I do love this class!!!!  Deep Water Running is where I put on an Aqua belt,  slowly inch myself into the cold water on the 13 foot deep side, and then start running in the water.  It will burn about 600 calories and we go about 2 miles in the pool each time.   I highly recommend water classes if they are available in your area!!!!  

 I did learn the hard way that I must bring a change of clothes and not go home in a wet swimsuit on a cold winter night!   I did this and when I got home....I could never get warm!  I bundled up, drank hot tea and climbed under my electric blanket.  

Weight Challenge:
Not only did I join the year fitness challenge, I also joined a weightloss challenge.   The first weigh-in I was wearing a sweater, turtleneck and jeans. I wore heavy clothes on purpose just so I would have a large starting point!!!!  That sounds terrible I know....however, today I had my first weigh in.  I am not excited about the 2.2 lbs I lost because my clothes weren't as heavy.  I am excited that I gained a 1 lb of muscle!!!!!!  that makes me more excited.   She has this fancy scale that measures all sorts of things....and muscle is one of them!!!  So I will take my one lb of muscle and be excited!!!

Just so you know...I do allow myself a coke or a sweet tea a day.  I just love them so much that I refuse to give them up.  I am documenting it in my Lose it app!!!!

How are you doing on your fitness journey?????   I hope you are making progress!!!

Good luck! I have a scale that measures fat, I think. Or maybe it's BMI. I forgot all about it. I'm trying to get back into the habit of exercising again. It's so hard when it's winter!! I just want to sit under a blanket.
