Holiday Belly Fat Results
As the New Year is just around the corner, I’ve been super busy wrapping up tasks as well as planning
and preparing for all the new events and adventures to come in 2013!
One goal I have made an effort to NOT put off is getting back on track with my workouts and doing better with planning out balanced meals.
After breaking my foot in November (just 3 days before our family holiday vacation to Disney) I was forced to slow it down and take a break from my normal workout routine.
This was awfully difficult for me.
I am a very active person and rely on the strength and energy my FYM workouts provide. Admittedly this was a good lesson for I needed to personally experience what the recovery process was all about in an effort to be a better coach.
While the first 2 weeks started off well as I made more of a focused effort to adjust my meals since my activity level was drastically reduced, the holidays did have an impact on my choices.
My holiday fitness goal was to just Maintain…but I was a bit more lax than I should have been.
Even though I received the clearance from my dr to resume my workouts and ease back into my routine, I’ve only completed 3 full body workouts in the past 2 weeks.
A lack of exercise + a lack of supportive meals = increased belly fat.
My efforts have been focused on getting back on track however I am not waiting until the 1st to do so.
“You will accomplish more if you start now”
This is a motto I now have hanging up on my 2013 planner wall calendar.
Sure I had a great excuse that I could use for a few weeks, but I allowed myself to get too far off track. The scale is not one of my main tools of measuring progress. Instead I use the mirror – photos – performance/strength.
One of the areas I focus on is my belly.
The changes my belly goes through tells me what is working and what is not. There is a saying that goes…your Body Keeps Track of your Choices even when YOU do NOT.
So very true!
As you can see from the photos above – I can pinch a lot more than I could just a months ago along with the loss of definition.
After a holiday season that came with unique ups and downs, I am more than ready to turn things around, to get my body back ~ to feel strong, lean and energized again.
My week has been spent listing out my goals for 2013, giving my organization system a makeover, and outlining the New Year’s Transformation Challenge that starts next week as well as getting back into my workout groove – with the awareness that I must ease in and be consistent.
Starting now (well a few days ago) has been the best decision for when the New Year begins, my habits will already be in place and in motion.
How about YOU?
What have you started NOW in order
to jump start your New Year’s Goals?
