This is my first time writing for this blog, but I thought that I would take the time now to put a little bit out there! The program has been really good for me so far, because I have always found it difficult to take time out of my schedule to work out. It has been nice that this is a department sanctioned project so I don't feel as guilty leaving for an hour in the day to go work out. I have already worked out more in the last month than I did in all of 2010!
My overall goal is to lose 30 pounds by my 30th birthday, which is at then end of May, and exactly 101 days away from today. I started this goal in the beginning of January when I signed up for Weight Watchers online with a couple of girlfriends from home. They were already working out together and making it a priority, but I didn't have anybody to push me here. This program is helping out with that, and the Weight Watchers is helping out with the eating. I have lost 7 lbs since January 1.
I hit a little setback last week because I went on vacation to Puerto Rico (I know, I am not complaining, I promise). I did not really watch what I ate and I did not work out... though we took a hike one day, and walked around a lot. I am proud to say that I only gained .6 of a pound, and coming back to my workouts with Andrew was not as sore as I thought that I would've been.
I am excited to increase my heart rate during the cardio workout today, and to increase my weights during the strength training. I have only taken one Sun Devil Fit class so far, but it was a lot of fun, and I hope to MAKE time for more as the semester rolls on.
