As for me, I've actually been doing really well! I didn't make any "resolutions," per se, but I started a fitness challenge with my family to help keep myself on track (3 months of tracking workouts, weight lost, and inches - prizes for the top 3 winners!), and J and I started doing Insanity so we had a built-in workout schedule. So far things have been pretty great. Not losing #s as fast as I'd like, but that's always the case, isn't it? Here's a little glimpse into what I've been up to these last few weeks.
Left: standard salad, standard breakfast (egg white, cheese, english muffin, and cinnamon/splenda english muffin), standard lunch (carrots and celery with spinach dip, apple, turkey sandwich, greek yogurt)
Right: turkey meatloaf and roasted broccoli; black bean enchiladas
Top: many baths with epsom salt soaks have been taken; had to succumb to the treadmill a few times
Bottom: visual motivation at work: stickers for every workout; my lunch bag
Running ninja! Thank God for neck/face warmers!
It has been hella cold here, but I'm sucking it up for the greater good.
Monday: Insanity (cardio power circuit), 3 mile run
Tuesday: Insanity (pure cardio circuit, so hard), 3 mile run
Wednesday: Insanity (plyometric cardio circuit, Hot yoga (75 minute vinyasa)
Thursday: Insanity (recovery day, easy strength/stretching), 3 mile run
Friday (doing tonight): Insanity (cardio power circuit)
Saturday: Insanity (pure cardio circuit), 3 mile run
It seems like a lot, but the runs I've been doing are pretty short/moderate for me, and the Insanity circuits are only 45 minutes total including warm up/cool down/stretching, so they're more like 25-30 minutes of actual circuit training, which means I'm averaging about an hour a day of actual working out. I've lost 2 pounds, which doesn't feel like that much, but I definitely feel a lot stronger and I'm hoping that the next time I measure inches, I'll see some more positive results there. Slow and steady I guess... I'm definitely struggling with being impatient to see results faster though - how do you guys deal with that? I'm trying to just keep my nose to the grindstone, but it's getting tough when I feel like I'm working really hard and not seeing much yet.
How are things going with you? Still motivated, or struggling? Is the cold keeping you indoors, or are you lucky enough to live in a mild climate? And what's on your agenda this weekend? Hope you're having a great Friday so far!
