Well, I survived day 1. Day 2 started at 3:05 this morning. I'm sure I'll be tired later, but it's only a half hour earlier than normal.
3.1 mile run in 29:14
Legs(circuits with shoulder work & cardio in the mix)
Finished with 15 minutes of elliptical
Food yesterday was great. I was actually slightly below my calorie goal, but my macros were on point. Where I am more focused on my macros, I am thrilled with the food yesterday.
The thing I've struggled with the past few weeks are accepting the changes. I've loved seeing the changes in my arms and legs, but my waist line is changing because of my legs/booty changing. My stomach looks like it sticks out further in the front and not as "flat" as it normally is. But that's not the case. It's because my booty is lifting and shaping and my love handles are going down. My stomach hasn't gone down much though. If that even makes sense. It's so hard to describe
Anyways, overall I'm happy, but this new body is taking some getting used to.

I've been so lazy and eating a lot of garbage lately. Birthday week for me is over and it's time to get my shit together. I woke up and weighed this morning. 141.2 When I lost weight and got fit for the first time in my adult life, my starting weight was 142. My lowest weight since has been 121. Seeing the 141.2 wasn't much of of a shock actually. I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. I've been hanging between 130 and 135 for almost 2 years now. This past few weeks all hell has broken loose. I am still working out 3-5 days a week, but not prepping like I should. Today I am back at it. Tracking my food and continuing my workouts. Today's workout: 25 minutes sprint HIIT 40 on, 20 off, 30 on, 30 off Biceps, triceps and some ab work Finished off with 25 minutes on the stepmill Total time 1 hour 40 minutes and 851 calories burned It was a sweaty workout and pretty tough. Food wise I have everything packed and my gallon of water with me at all times. I will be weighing in every Tuesday, but plan to blog daily or every other day. I've found blogging keeps me on track to my goals.

Life is good. Work is good. That's all. Ha! Yeah right, I am a big mouth who loves to talk. So, lets just dive in head first. Back in December one of the besties challenged me and another best to a clean eating challenge. We would eat clean all week and get one cheat a week. It was just the kick in the pants I needed. I made it through with just a couple of small slip ups. I started to see and feel some really good changes happening. My motivation was through the roof. I was working out 6 days a week. I was lifting a lot and doing a little cardio. My weight only changed slightly, but my measurements were going down. So, I was pleased. Then, January 1 happened. I had a dramatic start to the year. I got sick with a pretty rough head cold. I let excuses creep and clean eating took a back seat. Thankfulky, that didn't last long.
This changing body of mine definitely takes some getting used to at times. I do love it though.
Changing my eating habits has definitely improved all aspects of my life. I am more energized. I am happier and more positive. I am seeing great changes.
I plan on being here tomorrow to talk about iifym. I have only been counting macros for 2 days, but so far so good.
