I am doing seasonal healthy updates this year, last year I post every month for a while there and it just became a lot of the same time after time, so this year I didn’t want to do that. Which is how we got here, me updating you guys once every three months and really keeping track of my own progress. The last time I updated was in June, in case you were curious, and I think a fair amount has changed since the last update.
My workout routine has shifted once again, but I guess that’s to be expected to some degree. At this moment in time, I am working out six days a week and have been for the last three weeks. I run three days a week and workout at home the other three days, originally I ran on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, then on Thursday I worked on my arms, Saturday my middle basically and Monday my legs, however, I have changed Monday to more of a full body thing as I find I don’t really need to focus in on my legs that much with all the running that I have been doing. So, that is my current routine until further notice. And of course, I take days off from time to time because six days is a lot.
As for eating better, I have been working on that and over the past three weeks I have really buckled down and started eating better, it took me way too long to get to the food part but I’m doing better and that’s all that really matters. I’ve cut out most dessert, sometimes I’ll have it but not as often at all, I’ve also started bringing my lunch to work more and eating out a lot less. I’ve been working out and working out, while I’ve noticed changes physically I haven’t noticed any on the scale, but these past few weeks of eating better have made it so it shows on the scale some, which is really nice. I understand numbers don’t matter but it is nice to see some change in my weight.
Along with working out more and eating better I have inadvertently gotten on a really good sleep schedule, where I usually go to be between 9 and 10 and then wake up between 5:30 and 7, just depending on when I went to bed and such. This is a great new habit as getting a great nights sleep is really nice and has really energized me even more. So, at this point, I am basically bouncing off of the walls, except for when I get sleepy, then I just crash.
Another thing is that I have built up a lot of muscle I find, nothing impressive or crazy, but considering I started this journey at the beginning of the year with Jello arms and now I have arm muscles you can actually notice, I’m really happy with that.
So, overall I am really happy at this point in this check in and am excited to keep going and getting into better shape.
And I’ve decided to add a little progress picture, mostly because I can. The left photo was taken some time in March I believe and the right was taken this past Sunday, I can see a fair amount of change, and while I’m not quite where I want to be yet, I am super happy with the progress I am making. The legs especially.
Are you guys currently on a fitness journey as well? And if so, how is it going?
