This was my first week back to hitting it hard. And I nailed it! I feel awesome and have dropped a few pounds to show for it. It’s been awhile since I’ve been a consistent gym rat. I figured what better time to get back on track than the New Year. I’ve been in the gym everyday this week. I may take this weekend off. Not sure yet though.
I stuck to cardio. I know that I need strength training. I just wanted to bust out some hardcore sweat sessions to get back into the habit. I’m going to start trying the classes next week. Our new gym here in Virginia is great. We pay only about 10 more dollars a month and get so much more. My favorite part is that the wilds are members too. The kid’s club is not just childcare. They have activities and classes for them.

I have eaten very clean this week. I started tracking with My Fitness Pal again. I love it. It does all the work for me. I love that I can see not just how many calories I’m eating but also the nutritional content of it all. I haven’t even maxed out my calories once this week. Winning!! I’m been very conscious to what I’m putting in my body. And I feel fabulous! Remember when I said I hate getting up in the mornings? Well it’s getting easier and easier now that I’ve reset my body.
I’m really thinking about signing up for the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k. It is a really big race here in Richmond. The thought of running 6.2 miles make me cringe considering I haven’t ran a 5k in 6 months. Go big or go home. I’ll make my decision in the next two weeks. I need to test out my legs and see where they are. The race is at the end of March.
I’m feeling so proud of my first week on my road #getbacktofit. I’m very motivated and determined to make this year my year in fitness. Last year was great but it fell short with how busy we were with the move. I’m also a Pretty Muddy Ambassador again this year. I have not yet had a chance to run this race. By golly I’m running it this year come Hell or high water! Hey Mom – come and run it with me!!
How was your week in fitness? Have you set any fitness goals this year?
