WorkoutsThe holidays really threw me for a loop with the whole weight loss thing. Between eating out and all the wine (oh the wine) I got a little lazy for those last two weeks of the year. Since then I’ve been successfully able to work out maybe twice a week. It’s not ideal, but I can’t get to the office gym very easily with so many school delays and closures.
The Husband has also started training for a half marathon this spring. Unfortunately, it also cuts into my ability to work out, but if last year is any indication, seeing his progress will eventually make me more motivated too!
WeightI’m going to be honest here and admit that I’ve gained a few pounds since my last weigh in. It’s not much, and is most likely due to a combination of over-indulging during the holidays and lack of consistent exercise this month. I’ve been working on sticking with my water schedule and I’m confident that the weight gain isn’t permanent.
Non-Scale VictoriesIn many ways, just getting back to the gym this month was a victory. There was one day I truly did not want to work out. But I made myself do it, and it felt great.
Most weekdays I eat a salad for lunch…which is great. This month I’m revamping them tough to include healthier proteins and fats, like baked chicken breast and almond slices.
We haven’t had nearly as many cookies in the house this month…and I’m not missing it too much!
How I FeelA little sluggish. I don’t do well with winters like these. I would rather have tons of snow or a dry cold. As it is, we’re getting a lot of wind and rain. I’m the girl in the office with the space heater on in summer. I would even take a good snowstorm, as long as it was enough to get outside and play with the kids. The ground is just too soggy to go outside right now and it’s killer.
