This post won't have foodie photos, but rather sharing my goals for the next few weeks. There has been so much happening, between work and family, I feel like sometimes I have lost a bit of control!

I have been running 3-4 miles consistently, Monday-Friday for the past three weeks. I have lost about 2lbs, and an inch off my waist (yeah!) Though weight loss isn't my goal, it was nice to see. On the other hand... since I am more of a weight lifter (*flex* *fail*) I fear that the 2lbs lost was of muscle. Last night I did some lifting before my cardio for the day, and I have found that my lifts have been affected. I cannot lift the 15lb weights for as many reps as I used to, and it's a bit of a bummer. But that's okay! I just have to focus a little more on weights, and create a healthy balance with my Running. :)

My measurements this month:

Current Weight: 109-110lbs

Chest: 33"
Waist: 24 1/2"
Hips: 35"
Thighs: 18"
Neck: 11"

I notice my abs are showing a bit more defined now, from the running. Also my (muscular thighs D:) legs have slimmed down about 1/2 inch. Again though... it may be muscle loss.

Regardless, I am going to continue my running, and once I become slightly more cut, I will incorporate more weights back into my schedule.

Right now it goes something like this:

40 minute PM Jog/sprint, approx. 4-5 miles (depending on how fast my pace is that day and my energy levels)
Abs every: Mon. Wed. Fri.
Legs: Tues. Thurs. (on these days I take the cardio lightly)

This schedule really works for me, and I find the motivation comes easy as long as I put on my running shoes! :)

I have certain goals I want to reach by the end of the year, both physical and work-wise. Also things I want to do before the year is over!

  • Buy my own car!
  • Work a lot, save a lot
  • Exercise consistently
  • Don't eat too many pumpkin pies (but steal a slice whenever there is one around)
  • Go to New York with the boyfriend and Parents (still up in the air)
  • Visit my grandparents
  • Focus on enrolling into Culinary School
  • Spend Time with Family on the Holidays
So, quite a few little things, then some more important ones.... I am ready for it! ♥
