WIN & WOW Update

Yesterday was Wednesday so here is my Weigh-In (WIN) & Workout Wednesday (WOW) Post.

 The Weigh-In

I’ve been logging into My Fitness Pal for the last 515 days in a row as of TODAY.
As you can see, I’ve lost a total of 37.8 lbs.

I'm now at the maintain the weight but shape up stage.


The Workout


If you follow me on any other social media (Facebook or Instagram & if you don't follow me, you should), you will see any combination of these pictures posted for a daily workout:

Sit-up challenge with a 10 lb. plate.


Treadmill at home (late night or early morning when I can't get to the gym)

Treadmill at the gym (cause sometimes I have extra time while I'm there & sometimes my co-worker & I hit this during our lunch time)

Weights at the gym

Cycle at the gym

Sit-ups with 10 lb. plate

10 lb kettlebell work

And for the month of January, I am doing this challenge

One of the options for dancing with the girls.

Zumba dancing

Some core/ab work

The girls got their own kettlebells & sometimes do it with me.

I said it before & I’ll say it again (& you’ll keep seeing it): Someone once told me to keep my goals in front of me. And as bad as my memory is, it's REALLY hard for me to remember my goals if they're not in front of me.
Personal Goals:
1) Make healthier meal choices when eating out.
2) When indulging in something that's not a healthier choice, practice strict portion control!
3) Eat at least 2 fruits & 2 veggies daily.
4) Drink 72-96 oz of water daily.
 5) Workout 5 days a week.
6) Log EVERYTHING into My Fitness Pal every day.
7) Be comfortable enough with my body to wear a 2-piece for Summer 2014, even if I don't actually buy one.
8) Walk different 5Ks throughout the year.
Wish far:
March 15 Run or Dye
March 29 The Glo Run
April 5 80's Retro Run
May 10 Foam Fest
June 13 Glow in the Park
I'm sure this list will grow!
9) Walk/Jog Half Marathons.
April 26 St. Jude Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville (registration transferred from Memphis Half Marathon cancelled Dec 2013)
December 6 St. Jude Half Marathon in Memphis
10) Stop weighing/measuring everyday....don't be number-driven.
11) Be less self-conscious & more confident with myself. [I think I will always be working on this]
