My Fitness Journey - Month Four

Once again, I thought I was doing better. I have hit my steps on my FitBit practically every day. I have actually gone to the gym or gone swimmer as an active part of my life. I’m still not getting there every day, but I’m doing better than I used to. The only place that really shows is in my calves. I felt disappointed when I stepped on the scale this morning, but I’m proud of what I have accomplished so far. I fully intend to keep this up.

My fitness win is that I definitely feel like I have more muscles than I used to. The other day, I was driving and I felt my arm while I was resting at a red light. And BOOM, I felt a muscle. That’s certainly not something I ever felt before. I still need to shed some fat to get that muscle to show its face, but I’ll get there. I’ve decided that August will really be a month of movement. I’ll be moving to Cardiff soon, and I need to get into the habit of being active and going to the gym so I can make this a part of my lifestyle.

The area where I really let myself down is the food. I’ve definitely not paid much attention to what I’ve been eating. I’ve also been drinking more beverages (because summer) as well as summer treats like ice cream. I need to get over this. I’m going to get back into tracking my food and making better choices. We’ve been going to a farmer’s market and stocking up on so many amazing summer fruits. I’ve had two peaches today alone. I love that aspect of summer. I’m ready to do this for real!



I really need to get better at taking this pictures. Or maybe I should get someone else to take them. That makes more sense. The next time I'll be doing this post, I'll have roommates!
