Check in: How Are You Doing? What Are You Doing?

5 Mar


Happy March!  How are we all doing? 

I have been meaning to send you a group email to everyone who signed up for the 12K Challenge but I have not sat down and put the emails in a group yet so maybe that is a tonight project. 😀  I would love to hear your updates… successes, struggles, changes in body, changes in food habits…

My update is:

As I said in an earlier post February was full on things that put me on again and off again.  Thankfully that phase seems to has passed and so far for March I have been fully ON.  I have been to the gym on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.  A little elliptical, some running on the treadmill, and two Group Power classes which always leave me feeling stronger.  I have been lucky, my cousin Cheryl has been going with me frequently and  I usually stay longer than her, but its also nice to hang out with someone at the gym.

This afternoon I will go work out after work alone and I like that too because then I can put in my ear buds and rock away.  I have discovered I burn more calories to music because I am moving faster to a beat, but I stay longer at the gym if I am with someone.  Interesting. 😀

I am curious how you are doing so be sure to touch base here or on our Facebook page or both.  What you are doing to get fit and make positive changes in your life can inspire someone else… when you share your workouts, it may be something I or someone else would like to try too… and it’s always good to shake it up.

I am connecting this post to Joy’s Readers Workout as Joy is a fellow 12K Challenger as well. 😀

    February was on and off for me too. I had a bunch of social engagements, some things that really stressed me out, a deliberate week off, and then an injury. Things are going better so far for March, so I hope to keep that up!

    February was the worst month I’ve had in a very long time. A death in the family and 3 other members in the hospital. Hopefully March will be much better. At least my knee is feeling better, so maybe I’ll finally get to do my Bosu Ball workout dvd.

    I had a down week at the end of February and beginning of March. But the Tuesday 12K workout helped me get back to it!

      Nice!!! I finished my goal today for the month – it was a 6K, I did a 9K on the elliptical today and it felt awesome!!!

    Yeah for fitness! Have you been biking or is it too early still/cold?

    I wish I lived in MN so we could meet for a walk/run/jog. I’m obsessed with finding time for mileage right now. Next week will be so helpful… daylight saving time!!! whoop

      I wish I was biking! We were just dumped on another 8 inches of snow… 😦

    I did well in February but now I need a bit of a push to continue in March – 6km it’s going to be.
