Calories Burned: 18 (Average)
I did a poor job recording my progress this past month. Ugh! Maybe I will get it right this month! (:
Steps: 2,664 (Average)
Work Out Activities:
I did my usual but I was off towards the end of month I did Cardio Barre. I absolutely loved it! It was so much fun! I wish they had more classes available – I don’t want to get up at 8 am on a Sunday!
I got a Gear Fit 2 recently because I love being able to have an accurate account of how many steps I took and how many calories burned. It works perfectly with my Note 3. I love that sucker!
Calories Burned: 472 (AVERAGE)

Work Out Activities:
I have been working out but as many know, it is what you eat not necessarily your work out. I have been pretty good when it comes to working out but I am definitely fighting against myself.
I am in a constant state of wanting and wishing for things. I have a problem! So, to try to curb my impulsive purchases, I am going to share my wishes and wants with you! :)
I used to ride my bike around the beautiful Michigan State campus my first semester. Winter happened, my bike died (it rusted horribly) and I didn’t do ever again. I have wanted to get back on the bike, but I stop myself for some reason. I want to do stuff like this:
I need to be eating like this for the REST of my life! I consumed so much food it was crazy – I did do some activities but not a lot! This is my March Madness! :)
Calories Burned: 322 Calories (Average)
Steps: 4922 (Average)
Work Out Activities:
I pretty much do Zumba ALL THE TIME. Whether it’s the Zumba workout game or an actual class, I am shaking the fat right off (in theory).
I have been walking around a lot more. It does help that I have to walk around to get my laundry and things like that. Convience at times can equal laziness.
I have also been dancing around my apartment like it’s 1999. I have been watching a lot of 80s teen movies (which are literally the best movies EVER) and getting inspiration on the carefree awesome routines!
I am back on track! Man, last month was a bit rough for me both mentally, emotionally, personally, professionally, academically, just basically a mess! However, I have slowly gotten back to my goals and making sure that I am focused! Not to mention, my male bestie asked me to stand in his wedding in November. I will be a groomsman in a dress. This is exciting!!! I have to make sure that I am super FLY! (:
In other related news, I totally did something to the ball of my foot. It’s hard to walk it and in turn, it’s hard work out in it. How do you heal a cut on the ball of your foot when you walk practically EVERYWHERE!
Happy New Year folks! 1st day of 2014!
My Jawbone has been acting up again – I am a little sad about it because it wasn’t too long ago, maybe 4 months ago, that I had to get a new one. I am looking into getting another pedometer, but right now, I am using S Health app on my Note 3. It doesn’t link up to MyFitnessPal, but I am still going to enter and transfer things over.
Happy New Year, World!
I totally forgot to do an update in November! I was doing so well … but I feel that I did even better in December! I was walking a lot more and I remember to put on my Jawbone Up a lot more. I definitely saw results of being more active and out of my chair It was awesome! :)
Calories Burned: 65,555 Calories
Work Out Activities: I did a little bit of a whole lot! Whether it was Cardio Barre, Yoga, or Spin class, I kicked butt and took names!
- 43m of Cardio Barre; 181.0 calories burned
- 1h 4m of Cardio Barre; 26.87 calories burned
Status: With my family having surgeries and having additional responsibilities, I would say that I was walking quite a bit! Towards the end of the month, I exceeding my walking goal of 10,000! I felt really proud of myself. I want to keep that up for January because I notice a difference. A large contributing factor was the fact that I finished another academic semester and I have 2 weeks off. With the time off, I was able to focus on getting in some work outs.
I am incorporated more water into my diet again. I still drink pop because of the holidays (I am allowed a SLIGHT treat every now and again, right?). I keep a water bottle handy and I drink as much water as humanly possible (which is not a lot compared to the average person)..
Overall, I feel like I did a great job this month! I hope to keep it going for the beginning of 2014! :)
It’s not about dieting, it’s about having a healthy lifestyle. That lifestyle is definitely a journey. Check out my other fitness update posts!
