Losing A Sense

After my post from earlier this week, I talked with a few people about what kinds of changes I should make. Heard a lot from do more HIIT, to eat fewer calories (=/), do more cardio, and stop weighing in weekly.

Well, the very next day, I sprained my foot, which meant half of the new options got thrown out the window. Now 3 days after the initial sprain and I'm walking *almost* normal. I was able to do an upper body workout yesterday, which felt great, but no impact activities, and certainly NO MORE RUNNING.

Every Friday for about a year and a half now, I've been weighing in first thing in the morning. This is the first time that I'm skipping that weigh in. I'm going to be giving that route a shot. I won't weigh in again until June 14th. They say when you lose one sense, the rest get stronger. I'm going to test that theory out, but I'll be honest... I'M TERRIFIED.

That Explains A Lot...

My two year anniversary came and went, completely unnoticed by me. I wasn't expecting that. Last year I had a grand plan about where I would be when the two year mark rolled around and how there would be a grand celebration because I'd be done! Life had other plans. And by life, I mean me.

Let's Begin Again

A few weeks ago, I realized that I was "different" than I used to be because compliments drive me to push harder instead of making me feel complacent. The compliments make me want to work harder in the garage, sweat longer, walk farther and faster... They push me to be better physically.

But I've let myself slip in the kitchen. Using the excuse "too many social events" as a free pass to indulge too frequently. I don't think I'll ever go back to my old eating habits, but I have definitely been misbehaving.

It's never too late to start over, right? Now that I've got some significant trips on my calendar, it's time to get my ass back in gear!

Finding My Inner Gladiatrix

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it was enough time to produce great results! All of Spartacus themed routines for the month turned me into a leaner, meaner Gladiatrix! I lost 3 inches and showed a 67% improvement on the fit test, specifically on the agility moves.

But the best part? I earned my mark!

Weapons Training - First Video!

In keeping with my Spartacus theme for February, today was the first day I had a bit of "weapons training" thrown into the workout mix. They use all kinds of weapons on the show, and today I decided to start with my machete.

Yes, I have a machete. =)
