So I'm very excited to announce that we are FINALLY getting a house on base! Yay! It's a little frustrating in regards to timing, because we literally just moved in here a few weeks ago, but.. I don't mind at all! We have to pay a fee to break our lease here, but it's not too bad, and definitely worth it. We're going to be doubling our living space, our puppy with have a yard, and my husband's commute will be about two minutes long! Yay! It's three bedrooms, so we'll have an office, and the other room will be the guest room, and I will probably use it as my home gym a lot of the time as well. I can't describe how excited I am about moving in!
I also wanted to announce that, after we move in and I check out the gym on base, I will be able to work out a lot longer and lot more freely, as Genesis (our puppy) will be able to be outside a lot instead of in the kitchen or his crate, so there will be more fitness updates here, which I'm excited about. My new goal that I've set is to try to lose another 20 pounds by September, when my husband and I are going on a trip. He's doing a Tough Mudder in Maryland with his dad, then we're going to Ocean City for a few days, then off to Ohio for the USAF marathon! Very excited, and definitely something to push me into really kicking it back into gear. I'm doing good with drinking at least 70 oz. of water a day, which seems like a lot to some, but you'd be surprised just how much you need! If you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated, so keep a water bottle with you, and when it's empty, fill it up! Cheaper than buying several throughout the day!
Something I wanted to mention, I've had a few of you share your concerns that what you're doing may not be enough to get the results you want. Here's my perspective on it.
If you don't feel like you're getting results, switch it up. If all you do is jog, add some sprinting in, run up hills, anything to change it up. If you want to try something new, if you're getting bored, go for a swim, or ride a bike! ANYTHING is better than doing nothing! In my opinion, as long as you're really, really trying and working, there's NO SUCH THING as a bad workout! Like everyone's been saying lately, it doesn't matter how slow you're going, you're still lapping everyone on the couch.
I took Genesis for a long walk earlier, and I did pilates, but I'm still feeling energetic, so I'm going back for round two!
Have a beautiful, healthy day!
