I have been running for over a year. Things started out pretty slow but I have been running 3 - 3.5 miles consistently for the last 6 months or so. I love to run. Once things thaw out here and I can get out and hit the pavement, I plan to increase that mileage. Right now I run on the treadmill because I am afraid to slip and fall on the all of the ice that has accumulated. The treadmill is alright but I get bored easily.
Other than running, I didn't do a whole lot of other training. A week ago I got some workout plans from efitmama on Instagram. Follow her. She is a hard core! I love her workouts. But oh my goodness gracious have I been sore. It feels great though. She is running a special on her workouts right now. I highly recommend them. I am so excited to see how my body changes from adding in the weight training. Someday I just might be brave enough to share some pictures. :)
Are you trying anything new?

I went MIA and here I am to say I'm sorry. Life got so busy with the holidays on top of life in general. We had such a great time throughout the holidays but I am happy to be back in the swing of things.
I knew going in to the holidays that losing weight would be hard. I definitely wanted to lose but in the back of my head I knew that if I could just maintain, I would be doing pretty good. I am happy to report that not only did I maintain but I have lost. Such a wonderful feeling to see that number go down each week I stepped on the scale. Could I have done better? Of course. But part of my journey to a healthy life is to know that I can have treats in moderation and not deprive myself.
I didn't stop working out through the holidays but my plan right now is to step things up a bit. Yesterday I actually went to the gym twice. I'm not entirely sure why I went early in the day knowing that I would be in town in the evening to bring my son to religion and I always work out while he is at religion. So, I just went twice. And I felt awesome.
A new little fitness center opened in my small town. It is not a gym but a center run by a personal trainer who is offering small classes. I attended the open house yesterday and was excited to sign up for a class. I signed up for a total body workout class that uses the Step 360 PRO. It starts on Monday morning and I can't wait! I will fill you in on how it goes.
Here is a little video about the Step 360 PRO:
