Fitty Sense

It's the end of the first month in 2016, and with that, it's time to look back on the progress I've made toward creating a healthier, more fit body. I am not a big fan on getting caught up on the numbers, although you can't argue with them, but there is something to be said for changing habits and staying consistent. This month I picked up my old friends yoga and Pilates, and felt that good ol' feeling I use to get back in the day where I lived in yoga pants. That sense of strength and reverence for the things my body can do, gave me way more motivation than numbers on a scale.....crazy huh.....actually enjoying the process of getting healthy. Believe it or not, it does happen.

I get the urge to go nuts and do 2 a days and live in my workout clothes, but I have to remind myself that this is a marathon not a sprint. I lost 3lbs without really trying, I just made sure not to skip meals, eat well, and get off my ass more than I sit on it. That's about it. Next month I'd like to see more of the gym and get back into lifting, which is where I really see changes in my body. I also need to make Pilates and yoga a bigger part of my routine. I am a fan of full body workouts, and it helps to take a class which commits me to a time and date. So here are my goals for February. In the comments section below share some of your goals and challenges in getting fit. We can do this!

Goals for February

  • 5 Pilates Classes
  • 4 Yoga Classes
  • 6 Gym Workouts ( 30-45 min weight lifting sessions)
  • More Water- 1 gallon a day
  • Meditation 10 min daily
