Fit Friday No.2 (2018)

Here we are already, the last Friday of January. The first month of 2018 has flown by. As promised, it's time for a monthly check-in! The first week of this month totally got away from me. It was freezing here, like highs in the 20s. I know, I know.. that's totally normal for parts of the country, but here in Texas, the 50s are freezing, so 20 with a wind chill of 14 means this girl isn't getting out of bed unless she has to! Week two, Chris got the flu, and frankly, we were just trying to survive! Once that had passed, I got down to business, and the rest of the month flew by!

Number of gym check-ins 
Leaving lots of room for improvement this month. As of today, there have been 7. By the 31st, that number will be 10. Shooting for at least 16 next month!

Pounds lost
(lots of room for improvement here too!)

Goal of the month
Complete a 30 day squat challenge.
I totally failed at this! I did ten days, and then Chris caught the flu. My focus went from me to taking care of him (and trying to not get sick myself) and before I knew it life had been derailed for a full week. I managed to not get sick, and have spent the second half of the month in the gym, and just haven't picked back up the challenge yet. I will, maybe. It's a little hard to do both a daily squat challenge and train legs with heavy weights twice a week. Right now I'm trying to not over do it and burn out or get hurt.

Win of the month
I've gotten in to a great gym routine, that really works for my schedule and my body. I haven't blown off a single scheduled day since starting it. I work out hard four days, and have three days of rest. I might add in more days at some point, but right now this schedule is totally working.

Overall, I feel pretty good about the month. I wish I would have been more productive the first couple of weeks, but I'm glad I didn't dwell on it and let the whole month get away from me. Those four pounds were lost in less than two weeks, and I'm proud of that. I'm going in to February motivated and ready to accomplish as much as I can during the short month!

Did you crush your fitness goals this month!?
