Please don’t laugh [too hard] at my Jackass calendar, it was seriously this or the Civil War calendar at the Post Exchange.
I am happy with my choice, and no doubt it gives me a little chuckle every time I look at it and write down my completed workouts.
Socially: This month took a turn toward awesome in the social department. I met a few new Army wives and convinced them to join in some of the yoga and zumba classes at the gym. Yay for new Georgia friends!
Emotionally: Since I was able to see my family at Christmas, the homesickness has subsided quite a bit. And I’m generally feeling like my old self again. I’ve been signing up for free classes (like a resume class), and just trying to get the most out of GA while were here.
Physically: My activity level has not been as intense as other months, but I’ve been making a conscious effort to hit up fitness classes and stay active. Though running has not been the highest priority this month, I’ve still been getting some mileage by walking.
Total Running Mileage: 7 whopping miles!
As you can obviously tell, I took a little running break this past month, but nothing to worry about. I’ve still got the running bug.
Total Walking Mileage: 13 miles [yep, I did more walking than running – ooops!]
Total fitness classes attended at Gym: 18 <— CRAZY?!
- Spin Classes: 3
- Zumba Classes: 6
- Yoga Classes: 7
- Aqua Zumba: 2
- CrossFit: 2
- X-Box Fitness: 1 hour Biggest Loser Game, 1 hour Just Dance
New Class of the month: Aqua Zumba!
Army Activity of the Month: “Take Your Wife To Work Day”
Best Run: My first run of the year! Even though it was only 1 mile, it gave me a new inspiration to keep on running.
What I’m lovin’ this month [guilty pleasure]: Watching all six season’s of ‘How I Met Your Mother’. This show cracks me up!
Book of the month: Catching Fire, book II of The Hunger Games. I’ve started book III, and will be counting down until the movie comes out!
Spin, Yoga, Zumba Across America: I’ve completed 18 classes [1080 miles] which brings to me to about Lincoln, Nebraska on the map. So I’m about half-way “home”!
Fun Night Out: Hockey night with friends!
January Random: In my 11 Randoms post I mentioned how I didn’t learn to french braid until last summer? Well I’ve been working hard this month on perfecting that skill.
What I’m looking forward to: Running this silly Valentine’s day 5k race with my Valentine! ♥
Current Goal: To pick a half marathon to run in this spring. I will be more motivated to run if I’m training for something.
January started off a bit slow for me, but by the halfway mark my motivation had skyrocketed!
In looking back at all the fitness classes I attended in Jan, I’m quite pleased with myself. I’m hoping to switch things up a bit in Feb by adding back in more strength training. It’s obvious I love me some cardio, but I’m not seeing any change in my body with that.
I know February is a short month, but I’m going to make the most of it!
