Soooooo I kind of figured this would happen. Especially with everything going on in the world. Butttttt it’s time for another weekly update!
I feel like I’ve definitely noticed more changes this week overall than I did last week. Not gigantic, momentous changes, but still big for me. For starters, I noticed that I’m starting to see some muscle growth – specifically in my triceps!
. . . Again, nothing huge or super impressive, but ultimately more than I’ve seen before!
I’m also starting to notice that I am really looking forward to working out or having some sort of physical activity on a daily basis – and even get a little bummed out when I don’t. There is a definite difference in my overall attitude during the day when I get a workout in. I mean, I wanted so badly not to skip a workout day that yesterday, when Zach & our friends got the day off from work and we made an impromptu trip to a local beach – I still felt the need to get in a tiny workout XD.
(And there’s the proof)
It’s also become a LOT easier to manage what I eat throughout the day. Even on days that I feel like I’m eating a lot, I’ve been tracking my food and I’m still managing to keep under my calorie count for the day. I DO, however, need to work harder on eating an overall cleaner diet.
So, all in all things are going well. I decided to take a break from working out today due to being in the sun all day yesterday – so I’ll either do both Sunday’s & Monday’s workout tomorrow OR I’ll skip my rest day on Friday and use it to catch up. Either way – I am so proud of where I’ve gotten so far. And that I am taking the opportunity to enjoy the finer and simpler things in life.
As a bonus life update, we enjoyed a well & long-deserved break away from the daily grind and nonstop work schedule. A very chill day at the beach, a stroll through the downtown St. Augustine area, and a stop for some wine & charcuterie at a beautiful little hole-in-the-wall place (I wish I could remember the name) with some lovely live music.
Now . . . time for that weekly measurement update! This time the changes aren’t as evident, but still changes.
