For the Health of It

It's already Thursday?!?    Wow.  This month is flying by.  I have been so happily busy lately.  I swear I couldn't pack much more in my days.  I usually fall into my bed at night a very sleepy but happy girl. 

I mentioned that I was trying some new things in the new year and I wanted to share a little bit about it.  My friend Gillian got me hooked up with this fitness challenge via a local group (on FB).  Basically, we have a group that has a coach and we make our individual fitness/health goals for the 21 day challenge.  Our coach checks in with us and we post different things throughout the process.  And we drink Shakeology one meal a day.  At first I wasn't convinced that I wanted to invest in something like this.  I am not a fad diet kind of girl.  I believe in weight watchers because it is real life and making good choices.  BUT after a little research I decided that I should give this a try.  This shake is packed with vitamins, protein, and all sorts of good stuff.  Oh, and it's delicious.  I have been solidly doing it for a few days and I feel like I have more energy and less cravings to eat junk.  And I've given up the diet coke for almost two weeks now.  The best part for me is that it fits into my WW life. I'm looking forward to my weigh in this week!
And of course getting good physical activity is a part of it too.  So I'm trying new fitness classes and started my 10K training again.  This week I went to my first TRX class and it was awesome.  I'm sore still 3 days later but it's the best kind of sore.  And last night I gave yoga another chance.  I was happy with it and felt great after.  It really helped me stretch and relax my sore muscles.  And I got a good run in the other day.   But my favorite activity this week has been playing volleyball.  I haven't played in a few years and I'm so happy to be back at it.  My team is so fun and all are so nice.  It's been great meeting new people and sharing it with old friends.  We got our shirts yesterday so we took a picture after our game.  We may not have won a game yet, but we sure look like a cute team.  :) 

I'm looking forward to keeping this momentum going and getting to my fitness goals this year!
