Wow, January sure did fly by! I like to look at it as one month closer to Summer!! I booked my summer vacation this past weekend, so the countdown is officially on. Unfortunately, I still have many months before the family heads down to the beach, but it’s fun to daydream.
I am feeling better about my running routine each week. It’s getting a little easier (I am getting stronger) and I actually look forward to it on some days. I’m going to start increasing my mileage slowly on my Sunday runs. Here are my January exercise totals:
Mileage – 43 miles
Body Pump – 4 classes
Yoga – 3 at-home sessions
Walk – 3.5 miles
Another interesting note on the fitness front is that a memory popped up in my memories on Facebook that was from when I first started running more than 3.1 miles! Somedays it’s still hard for me to believe I am a “runner” and I still don’t feel confident calling myself a “runner”. I still feel like a phony for some reason – lol!
Nutrition: Hmmm…I’ll give myself a B- in the nutrition department for the month of January. I did manage to lose 5.5 pounds of my added Christmas weight! I’m not sure how I managed to do that with Gabby living in my house. She LOVES to bake. Her most recent creation was this 4 layer cake. MMmmmmm. Get in my belly!
I’ll also give you a quick summary of my last week and a half (Jan 22 – 31):
Sunday – 3 Treadmill miles at the gym (9:55 pace)
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – 3 Treadmill miles at the gym (9:57 pace)
Wednesday – Body Pump
Thursday – Rest Day
Friday – 3 Treadmill miles at the gym (9:51 pace)
Saturday – Body Pump at the gym
Sunday – 3.5 Treadmill miles at the gym (10:05 pace). Funny story…I had finished catching up on all the Scandal episodes that were available on Netflix on Friday, so I decided to start a new show. I heard that Shameless was a really good show so I started watching it. Definitely not “gym appropriate” – lol!! I ended up turning it off because there was a dude running right beside me and I didn’t want to look like a pervert (I will save this show for watching at my house). I ended up listening to my music, which I rarely do at the gym and I actually really liked it for a change.
Monday – Yoga at home with Makayla (and Flash). He decided to do the “All the way down facing dog”
Tuesday – 3.5 Treadmill miles (9:53 pace)
I’m looking forward to February workouts and upping my mileage! I’ve got a few workouts on the horizon that will be a change from my usual workouts. I’m really excited to share them with you! Stay tuned!
