I shared a post a couple of weeks ago about the weight loss that I have had and the weight loss challenges that I was participating in. With it being the new year, I guess I should write a recap and update of the 2018-2019 year and share it with the bloggieverse.
I did good on my weight loss challenges. I made my 20 pound goal for the Studio G weight loss challenge. Yay! I really enjoyed the classes, but the downside with nearly every class being so squat heavy, my knee did not like that and the last 2 weeks of classes, I was ready to be done with them. But my body liked the workouts and responded well.
My local weight loss challenge, I was really hoping to win, but I got 2nd place. I did not work out at all the weigh in week because my knee was so cranky and swollen, I could not walk. I needed 3 more pounds to lose to win Not a lot of weight so it was a close challenge! I was not expecting anything as a prize because only the first place persons prize was stated. BUT I did win a 6 month gym membership and I will be using it for sure! First place won a year membership, a fitbit, $250 cash, and a night stay at a local hotel.
|My surprise prize in the mail!|
I have taken a 2 week break from dieting and working out, and I probably have put back on all the weight that I lost the last 2 months….
But I will be getting back on the workout wagon. Today is New Years Eve and I am focusing on my water intake. I drank all of my water on the 30th, so I will be hydrated going into the new year. I have some food prepped for January 1st and protein shakes ready. I even got on the treadmill and lifted some weights 12 hours before the new year started.
I paused my workouts in the Transform App to rest my knee up and enjoy the Christmas holiday! I will be restarting my macro counting and workouts on January 1st!

I even got my half marathon training calendar ready. Since I am so good at pushing myself and working out for 3, 4, 5 hours at a time, I need to slow my roll and focus on 3 miles at a time. I found a reasonable looking 12 week half marathon training plan and will be using this for Race to Robie Creek training.
Other then that, I didn’t really do much of what I wanted in 2018. Depression kept me blah for most of 2018. A cranky knee and just being unhappy in my current housing situation just froze me in a rut. I am hoping for some changes to be happening in 2019, and being fit will be a big part of my goals and hopes for the year.
Have a Happy New Year, my bloggie friends. <3
