‘nother notch in my belt

Yay! When I got dressed today, I had to tighten my belt another notch! When I first started working out, I owned some belts that didn’t really fit me, and I didn’t need any belts cause my clothes weren’t loose. Now I’ve gone from a size 16 to a size 14 (and those are starting to get too big!) and I need to wear belts with all my pants. Next goal: fit into size 12. I have a pair of size 12’s that fit me, but they’re stretchy denim, so that doesn’t count. 🙂 Keep in mind, this has been 2 years in the making, so it feels pretty good to see what kind of results I’ve had. All that sweating pays off.
I’ve been doing pretty good lately about working out more regularly. I even start to crave moving my body if I’ve been inactive for too long. I’ve also stepped up my weight lifting and am doing heavier weights now. I’m finally starting to see some shape coming back to my arms. My arms are my weakest muscles, so I have some work to do to balance them with my more muscular legs. In terms of diet, I’ve started to track how many servings of fruits and veggies I have each day. I’m averaging about 6 a day right now. I’d like to step that up to 8. The local farmer’s market had become my favorite store.
Anyways, has been helping me really keep track and stay motivated. My cousin joined up with me and we tell each other about our workouts and if we ate really badly on any days. If anyone else wants to sign up, I’d love to add you as a contact and have your help keeping me motivated to keep on sweatin’. There are also some pretty helpful forums with decent advice, some from experts, but most from what people have experienced in their own lives. So if you like or need to work out, join and we can keep each other motivated!
