Reasons to Wilf-Dance

Hey, guess what?  It’s a post where I get to brag about something.  I love posts like that!  Today, I get to strut a little bit with pride because on Saturday I officially finished my first full month of the Blogilates calendar.

Could Wilf be any cuter?  No.  He can't be.

I kind of can't believe it; working out six day a week for a whole month is definitely not something I am used to but hey!  Guess what? I did it!  Cue the adorable Wilf-dancing above.  

What I liked about this month:  
-With the calendar provided on blogilates.com, I wasn't ever bored or wasting time looking for anything on Youtube.
-Sharing struggles and triumphs with the other two taquitos, Jill and Steph and making each other laugh (though not on the day after Ab Day.  Nobody laughs the day after Ab Day).
-I lost 7.5lbs! 

 

What I learned about myself: 
-I am capable of hauling myself out of bed six days a week to workout
-It takes about 28 straight days for my body to get back in the swing of exercise
-I feel better when I'm active
-Four weeks is just enough time to begin to notice subtle changes in the way I look.

So now, I am biding my time waiting for Cassey to post the February calendar so that I can move on to my next challenge: 2-a-days for the first two weeks of the month before I leave for Haiti.***  I figure I'll be spending my 10 days abroad doing a lot of manual labor so my pilates can take a backseat for a minute.  Right?  I'm going to go ahead and say right.

How has the first month of the year treated you all?  Anything you want to brag about?  Share with me in the comments below!

 

 

*** I'll be posting about our upcoming trip to Haiti in the next few days so stay tuned!
