Something in the Air

There's something about June. Maybe it's that official start of summer panic that swimsuits are soon to be revealed. Maybe it's that it's finally nice enough to get out and start playing again. Maybe it's all of the sunshine and seratonin.

Whatever the reason, I seem to have a pattern of getting back in to a groove of working out every June. Forget January and New Year's Resolutions.

Craig has joined me on a quest to eat healthier by tracking what we eat using myfooddiary.com. I used this site effectively a few years ago and lost a bunch of weight. I'm hoping it will work for me again.

Now that my back has healed from my little spill, I'm back to working out, too. On Monday, I started a Boot Camp that meets 3 days a week for 4 weeks. I'm sore today, but know that it's the 'good' kind of sore. The sore where I find muscles that I had forgotten existed in my netherregions.

I had stagnated in my post-baby weight loss about 2-3 months ago.
Aside: Yes, Truman is now 5 months old...how did THAT happen?!
This week, I discovered that I'm down 5 pounds and only have 10 more to lose to reach my pre-baby weight. The ultimate goal is to lose 40 more pounds after that, but having another baby may interfere with achieving that goal in the short term.

All this to say that June is generally a good month for me and my motivation. Let's see if we can make it stick through the summer and beyond!

Congrats on all the motivation Catrina and doing all that you are....I don't think you need to lose another 40lbs because you always look so great in all your pictures - but if you want to do that - GO for it. And kudos on the boot camp. I would probably fall over and die after 1 day! Awesome goals...Everyone has a different month to start...different motivations! LOVE what your doing.
