Smile Welcome to February: Love Yourself into Fitness this Month!

During the month of January; I am happy to report that I lost 1/2 inch off my waist, hips and upper thighs. I "gained" 1 1/2" (muscle) in my upper arms!

Since this worked so well for me for January, a "good thing" bears repeating!

Again, my personal goal is to exercise every day for the entire month of February. Caveat to all: I have been working out (upper body) with a reinjured left shoulder and left elbow)---I needed to follow my own advice, which I did not but I am now! Warm up cold muscles before doing any kind of exercising and when injured R.I.C.E.

Pam

I was hit and miss with my exercise and posting last month. Looking forward to starting fresh in February. I would love to do the 5k in October. It will probably take me the full 9 months to train for it LOL so I better get started now. I am going to shoot for 63 miles on the treadmill.
14 days at 1.5 miles and 14 days at 3 miles. I guess I need to get good at walking before I add the running in. So this month is only about the miles, next month I will up my pace. I think I am at 3 miles an hour, maybe a little faster.

Being "in the black" is not a good thing in this thread!

January was a bust for me...I just could not get into the habit of logging exercise. (There are too many new habits I am trying to acquire at once.) Well...one of my New Year's Resolutions was to make new resolutions every month. So...I'm trying to decide whether I should "resolve" to committing fully to this thread in Feb or just try harder. Anyway, I'm back to try again.

Sat 1 Feb: 10 min FitnessBlender workout
