*This post today is for Amanda, because I promised her I would link up (finally!! it's been so long) my progress for the 30 miles in 30 days challenge.
This month I really got my act back together with my health and fitness. I had a harsh wake up call in October when I took my personal health assessment at work and literally failed it. No fruits and vegetables, drinking sugary drinks (16oz coffee per day and random sodas), eating chips, processed lunches, you name it, I was doing it. Oh, and many, MANY Target brand appetizers and Applebee's trips. I don't know what happened that I got that way. I noticed my pants were rather snug and after my test results I decided that was it. I have to go back to the gym and just do it. So besides my pants ready to burst off my rear end, my father in law is interested in getting back in shape as well and wants to start running 5ks and 10ks. I said I would do it with him (and Mike) so that has been motivation as well.
So in addition to what you see below, I've also incorporated breakfast, a light lunch and portioned dinners to my "diet" (except its not really a diet). It's so cliche to say but I honestly feel more well-rested and normal. I was so lethargic and didn't want to do anything but watch TV and gorge on shit when I was in my busting button on my pants phase. I'm in a happy place right now, let's hope it stays like this.
November TOTAL: 46.20 miles :)
I pinned the other day the Planksgiving challenge. Too bad I didn't see this in the beginning of November. I'm on day 4, plank for 35 seconds. I should take a picture now of my stomach to see if it shows any progress by the end of the challenge. This will bring me to December 17th which is right in time for me to start relaxing prior to Christmas :)
I feel like I'm really great at pinning all this "at home" / "no equipment" exercises but I rarely follow through with them. I don't know what it is. What is so hard about taking 10 minutes (if that, really) to do these things? But I do plan on keeping up on this one, I struggled yesterday at the gym doing this. Well, I got past 30 seconds but the over achiever in me wanted to do it longer. I lasted 45 seconds, so today should be easy hopefully.
How are you doing with your fitness goals? Do you ever follow through with what you pin on pinterest?
And a little funny for you today:
