How am I doing? An update on my goals

In an earlier post I outlined some goals that I am working towards in order to keep me motivated on my journey towards a healthy and happier life. Here's an update of how I am doing so far:

-Exercise 4-5 times a week.

Check! Between cardio boxing, Pump class and running I am kicking butt on this one (I have the sore muscles to prove it!)

-Look back on my daily meals and know that I am getting plenty of vegetables, protein and fibre.

Check! I have been loading up on lots of good eats like steamed veggies, skinless chicken breast, whole grain bread, oatmeal and yogurt

-Get more calcium and vitamin D

Umm...sort of check. I have been taking a supplement for both but have forgotten more days then I'd like to admit too

-5K in 30 minutes or less by year end and 10K by spring

In progress....

-Call myself a runner

Check! My last post is proof of that particular declaration

So far I am feeling pretty good about the goals I have set out. I definitely haven't been perfect but I didn't expect to be. This is life, my life, and if I am being realistic I know that its not going to be flawless. But what it can be is pretty darn great and baby, I am on my way!!

PS Those dreaded 5lbs from my second post...4 of them are G-O-N-E!! Whooo hooo!
