My goals at the end of May were to;
[*] Exercise five days per week
[*] Work on running a constant 12 minute mile
[*] Lose five pounds/lose an inch off my waist/lower my BMI by a point
[*] Be diligent with my nutrition
I am patting myself on the back twice because I exercise on average five days during the last three months. I visited the gym at least twice and workout at home or at the park the next three days. My fitbit folex is one amazing tool; it has made me aware of my deficiencies when it comes to moving while I'm at work.
In June it was all about running then my knee started bothering me; per doctors orders I was to take a break to allow the soreness to do away. I'm still dealing with the soreness so I run made four times in the last two months. So there goes my goal of becoming a better runner.
When it comes to losing weight my body does not cooperate at all. I have managed to lose
2 pounds in the last three months, which is an average of .67 pounds per month. A lost is a lost but I want more and will continue working for more. I think my weight loss could be combination of me falling off the nutrition wagon and weight training twice per week.
However, due to me steeping up my weight training sessions and and intensity, I have trimmed 1 1/2 inch off my waist, 1/2 inch off my arms, 1/4 off my hips and 1/4 inch off my thighs; so YEAH for me. I did not lose a full point of my BMI but I'm looking and feeling leaner. I had days where I eat foods that weren't conducive to a healthy lifestyle, but I was able to correct and redirect my path.
This healthy lifestyle journey has taught me that putting the work in and not beating myself up when I slack off will get me the results I need. Therefore I will continue to be diligent with my nutrition and my exercise routine, so I can achieve a healthier and sexy me.
My goals in the coming months is to continue to lose weight and trim and shape my body through exercise and proper nutrition.
