Workout Wednesday - Progress Report #3

It's that time again. Time when I let you know how things are going with my health journey and hopefully inspire you to get one or progress on your own journey. Last week was a crazy week for me so I had to postpone this post until today, but I'm happy to report, progress is being made.

I find it exciting to get up in the morning and start on my walk because I know I'll get amazing ideas and I'll feel energized once I'm done. I've progressed my workout routine gradually in order to let my body catch up then I've pushed forward. It's so nice to feel comfortable doing things at my pace knowing that it all works together and that this is my pace.

So what's been my progress recently?

Exercise: Walking 1.5 miles per day, 70 jumping jacks, 35 crunches, 15 sit ups
Water: 2.5 bottles per day (more than 6 glasses of additional liquids throughout the day)
Vitamins: 1 every day
Goal Measurements
Waist - 28.5 (down from 29 last month) goal - 25
Hips - 37.5 (steady from last month) goal - to remain steady
Weight - 117 (down from 119 last month, within goal range)

As you can see, I am making progress. I'm also being smart and assessing if my goals are working for me and if not I adjust them accordingly. Not to where I don't have to work, but to where I listen to what my body is telling me and go with that. I've got more energy to do more and keep up with my children, so it's going well.

I've decided that my progress prize is going to be these lovely non-practical sandals! This will be the first time I've gone out and purchased a pair of shoes just because I wanted. I'm not a shoe horse by any means, but I find pleasure in these. Besides, my progress treats are about want, not need so I'm thrilled! Can't wait to show you in person!
How have you done on your goals this month? I'd love to hear.

Wahoo!! I'm so happy for you. It sounds great to give yourself the opportunity to really focus on what your body is telling you and not just press on unrealistically- this always leads to quitting a program. And what a treat those lovely shoes will be!!
