Fitness Updates

 So late last year, November to be exact, I had my mind made up to get serious about improving my diet and doing more consistent workouts.  I don't want to lose weight but, I want to lose some inches around my waist and gain about 5-7 pounds of lean muscle all over.

I like to incorporate different things into my workout regimen because I get bored so, recently this is what I have been doing:


  • Running a mile every other day
  • Weights 3-4 times a week
  • Pole dancing class 1-2 times a week (I love that I can get my sexy on and get a real workout in at the same time. I've never been so sore in my life!)
  • Last week I started the 30 Day Cardio Challenge. Sign up and read more about it here:  http://www.mrshutupandtrain.com/30daycc/

I'll be honest....I'm not as strict with my diet as I could be but, I have been really trying to give up sweets (less candy, less juice, less icecream...).  I'm eating more raw vegetables and fruits, specifically spinach, mixed salad, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. I don't really eat fried foods so, that hasn't been a big issue.  I plan on really eating much more "clean" as much as possible with a cheat day here and  there thrown in.

I'm starting to see some results but, I have a ways to go before I reach my goals.

January 2013
I weigh a little more now than I did in November (by 2 lbs; I weigh 126/127 now) but, my midsection is looking  a little slimmer so, I'm attributing that increase to more muscle tone (I hope!)  I will keep you updated monthly with my progress!

How are your fitness goals coming along?  What new things are you trying?
