I'm at the gym...

So.... since I have been on break, I have had some daily routines. Such as... sleeping in until 9:30 (or later), lunch dates with the hubs or friends, shopping until I drop, or going to the gym. The holidays are a time where I tend to put on weight. Let's face it, it's not hard to do with all the holiday drinking, eating, and wanting something sweet after a meal which becomes a hard habit to break after the holidays end. So, I really needed to get back the feel of needing a workout to be in my daily schedule. So, I did a 10 day challenge with my dear friend Baylee. We made a promise to each other to workout together for 10 days straight. No drinking and watching what we eat. 10 days later...WE DID IT! We were total gym rats. We started every workout with a warm-up on a cardio machine for about 35 mins and then doing some free weights and plyos! I didn't really see a drop in the numbers on the scale (about 3-4 lbs) but I felt it in my clothes. I could see a change in the shape of my arms and legs and yes the belly! I want to keep this up once school starts again. I will keep you posted on how that works out.  Until next time....

Keep up the GREAT HARD work! You are so determined and motivated when you get into something so do what you said and don't let that fade when you get back to school... Remember how good you feel and that great energy you get after working out! I am here for you (and now going to listen to my own advice and go to a kick my ass yoga class)! Love you and so proud of you!!!
