The first month of “A Year of Resolutions” is officially done. I know I already talked about how I want to be healthy and lose weight. I told you all about my struggle, and what I am hoping to achieve.
My friend Courtney and I spent the month eating healthy, working out and comparing notes. There were a few times where we both threw up our hands, but luckily they were on opposite days. When I complained, she was there to help.
And guess what? We both lost over 6% of our body weight. I lost exactly 9 pounds, while Courtney lost 10.5. She won the monthly challenge by 0.5%. I am proud of both of us, and I lost about 4 more pounds than I expected.
I still want to lose another 8 pounds to get to my goal weight, while Courtney only has 1 frikken pound. I think that means I should win the challenge in February :). And like we promised, I will be sending her a healthy gift for her prize.
The best part? I haven’t been starving. I am eating healthier, and feel like I have a lot more energy. That isn’t to say it has been easy, it’s hard to eat past sugar cravings. The most frustrating part is I can’t “see” the results yet. I am hoping that comes soon.
Also, we completed the squat challenge. Our challenge for February is arms! It took me a while to find a good one, some were pretty minimal, while some seemed crazy hard. This one looks like something I can easily do in addition to my normal work-outs.
My February resolution is going to be a bit easier than January, that way I can still focus on being healthy! I will be posting about it later this week. How are your resolutions going?
