February In Review

Well, well, well.  Here I am again :)

Happy to be back blogging for a second, but not so happy to tell you all about the big gain.

I think my lowest was at 192 when I did the olympic tri in August of 2014.  I've been around 215 for the better part of 6 months now.  I chose to sit on the couch instead of workout.  I chose to eat bad things instead of good.  That simple!  My life is waaaay too busy to make New Year's resolutions (plus, bday is in January!).  Last month, I started being a lot more disciplined in my workouts.  Here's a recap:

NOTES
19 workouts, 17.6 hrs of working out


Not bad!  An average of 4 workouts a week.  I was sick a little bit here and there and just plain tired other times.  I think I was on drugs on Feb 2nd with the treadmill after yoga.  That's a lot!

What did I the scale show me in return?  NO change.

Really?

Yep.

Workouts were good, but my eating was not stellar. At. All.

I tracked my food spending all month and got a little lenient with the ice cream both around one of my bestie's 30th bdays and then again when I had a sore throat.

Moderation is key, but ice cream is the devil.

I just really, really love ice cream.  I did keep some blood orange sorbet around for like a week, but that was mostly because it was so sour that it hurt my taste buds if I had a normal serving.

Plan for March:
-Keep up the good workouts
-For the love of God, eat better
-Crazy schedule = crazy rest (be responsible with my free time)
