Feeling so BLAH today. The gym I (rarely) go to has a nurse and every 3 months they take your measurements, calculate your body fat etc. I went this morning and I lost 10 inches and 3 pounds in the last 3 months. I'm very close to my goal weight anyway so it's just fine, except their machine told me all I lost is 3 pounds of muscle. How is that even possible considering that I lost 10 inches and only eating at a small deficit, while lifting 3x a week? Sure it's not 100 pounds weights, but I still fail by 8 reps with the weights I've been using.

I'm totally discouraged. Even telling myself the numbers make no sense... it's a huge let down. I exercise 1-1.5 hour a day. Bleh.

Ok! First time posting in here but here goes.

I'm going to be running in an K9 and human obstacle course thing ( http://badassdash.com/2014/02/10/k-9-obstacles/ ) so it's giving me the inspiration to get back in shape. I'm not totally inactive but I'm way out of shape from this winter and never doing any real structured exercise.

So, started C25K today and it went well! It was timed perfectly, right about when I was hitting my last reserves the buzzer went and I could walk again and was ready to run by the time I needed to.

And I'm on the 30 Day Shred and I seriously love/hate this work out. It's soooo hard and it's only the first level but I really feel like I'm getting a serious workout in. Plus I'm already seeing an improvement in how easily I can follow along with it.

And last, I've done three days now (sped out for recovery time) of hill sprints since along my normal bike path with a dog is a perfect hill to sprint up. That's getting easier too!

So yeah, figured posting this makes it real!

Yesterday I did my core workout using our stability ball. My core is easily the weakest part of me - all fat goes to my belly and I have horrid balance issues. I've been doing core workouts on the ball three times a week since we got the ball about a month ago.

Today was the first day I didn't find keeping balance on the ball super challenging! I was even able to do this exercise, which up until now had been too difficult for me to balance for.

Core stability, yay! I love light bulb days like this.

I am undecided between half or full marathon for October.. I won't be doing any more than a 5k if I don't get my arse in gear before then!

Ran 2 miles this morning before I had to stop because my stomach hates when I run, apparently. Finished with 2 miles walking briskly at a 5% incline.

Really need to lift some weights tomorrow though.

Finally actually started running again, day before yesterday and today. Feels good! Life recently has been keeping me pretty active but it's still nice to get out for a run.

I'm happy to be seeing more muscle definition in my arms recently, I want to work on my shoulders though. I have a few ideas, but any good shoulder workouts people would recommend in particular?

I've been working out 3x/week for 3 weeks. Mon/Wed/Fri. I do Body Pump on Mon/Fri and TRX on Wed. Tomorrow I'm going to miss BodyPump and I feel horrible. Guilty...trying to figure out what I can do to make it up.

On one hand it's sort of annoying.

On the other, yay for being obsessed with working out regularly again

Also, doubled my weight at BodyPump on Friday and was not horribly, painfully sore. Yay
