The Boyfriend 15lbs... UPDATE!

Pin It
A little over a month ago I started sharing with y'all my eating habits and workout routine.  It's been tough tracking everything I eat, especially when it's days where I snack alot.  I do think it has made me more accountable and I've enjoyed tracking my workout routine.  My meals are not exciting, you've probably noticed that I'll eat the same thing for lunch & dinner for a week in a row - that's what happens when you cook for one.   What I've become most aware of is eating out, I probably eat out at least 4 to 5 times a week (mostly on the weekends).  My goal is to cut back on eating out, for example, tonight I am making homemade pizza and salad instead of going to Fellini's.  Also, for Lent I gave up sweets and fried foods.  Not eating fried food definitely makes me feel better and I don't really miss the sweets.

My gym workout is pretty consistent - spin class on Monday nights, either the elliptical or treadmill Tuesday through Thursday, and then a run outside on Friday.  I would really like to add in a weekend run especially now that the weather is nice!  I'm typically at the gym for an hour a night and average 3 miles on the treadmill or elliptical.

Are you curious what my gym looks like?  It's a 2-story gym with weight training, spin room, fitness room and free weights on the 1st floor and cardio machines on the 2nd.  My go to spot is the 2nd floor - but it's kind of creepy when its busy because you can feel the floor bounce!!
Spin Room
(there's a small area on the 2nd floor with about 10 bikes) 

Treadmills
(at least they face a window, so the views nice!)
 

Ellipticals


I think it is so important to find a gym that you like and one that makes you feel comfortable.   I love going to the gym after work, it's my time to unwind, catch up on some tv or read my book (yes - I read while on the treadmill and elliptical!).

Have y'all enjoyed reading my Weight and Fitness page?  Do you have any questions or suggestions for me?

I haven't necessarily lost any weight, but I do feel much better in my clothes - and really, that's all I care about!
