How am I looking now?
What has changed?
I am still counting calories and I really think upping my caloric intake has helped me drop a pound. Considering this last mont included a two week vacation AND Christmas I take that as a win! I also downloaded an App to my iPhone that helps me track my water intake. The cool thing is is that it factors in both exercise AND breastfeeding. According to it I need about 13 glasses of water per day. All I have to do is tap the screen when I drink a glass and it records it. By the end of the day I can see how much I am lacking and make up for it! LOVE IT!
I am still getting to the gym 5-6 days per week. I took a little time off over the holidays but still managed to squeeze in a couple of runs and some CrossFit with Chris. I start team teaching BodyFlow in a week also. I am mixing up steady state cardio, weights, CrossFit, HITT, and yoga. I am so excited to finally see some progress being made I am also starting to train for my 2nd half marathon!

Do each exercise for one minute. Repeat circuit three times. My stats ended up being these:
Box Jumps: 57
I think I am getting on track now. I would like to lose 1-1.5 pounds per month. I think that is both a realistic and healthy goal. I have also really cleaned up my diet and want to continue to incorporate as many whole foods and fruits/veggies as I can into each meal.
Overall I am feeling a lot more confident this month which feels great. My “fat” jeans are zipping a little easier too! I am proud of myself for continuing to push myself and not let myself fall into a lazy mindset. I want to be healthy and happy so I can be the best I can be for these special people …
