Despite recent mental health issues (was recently diagnosed with cyclothymia and was going through a depressive phase), I’ve still continued with my training. I have made some great gains – my arms are 13” (up from 11”) and my thighs are 25-26” (up from 22.5”). Same weight. My traps are looking pretty beastly as well. 🙂 Two more weeks and I have a 1RM test for my lifts!

SpecialSundae:  I signed up for a triathlon! Just a sprint, to see if I don’t die. I’m also doing a 10-miler May 4.

I want to do as much as I possibly can before TTC because lord knows a baby changes everything!  😉

I went from not being able to run for a minute to being able to complete a 5K.  I feel great, am looking better, and am working on upping my speed!  I actually even enjoy running now, weird right?  (I really hated it before.)   Once I’m a little faster, I’m hoping to start training for a 10k.  🙂

 After 9 months of hitting the gym, I finally LOVE working out! I’m addicted! I don’t have any specific accomplishments but I feel much better and have energy for tons of stuff. I have better mental clarity too!

DH and I signed up for our first half marathon and have been training! Friday we ran 9 miles!!! We were never big runners so this is a huge accomplishment for us! Our pace was 9:30 🙂

SpecialSundae:  I did my first 5K last weekend! My cousin and I decided to get healthier together and we started training in January – both of us being non-runners! She ran the whole thing but I stopped and sped walked beside her a few times – but mostly running. I am so proud of myself – I always hated running and just thought it would always be that way – but now I love it!! Our ultimate goal is to compete in the Disney Princess half marathon 🙂 

I have also lost ~15 pounds since January. I have A LOT more I can lose (prob about 30-40 more!) and I know it won’t be done by my wedding (69 days!) but I am hoping to lose about 10 more pounds before then.

Congrats to everyone on their amazing fitness achievements!

I have an injured knee right now (likely multiple torn ligaments), so I can’t do many of my usual activities – playing soccer, running, cycling, and full-body weight training. 

But since I got hurt, I ‘ve managed to work out my upper body using free weights for 1 hr 4 times a week. And though I’m still waiting to hear if I need surgery, I’ve also started re-introducing some daily leg exercises (as approved by my physiotherapist). 

It’s been emotionally and physically difficult to give up my usual routine, but I’m doing what I can to feel healthy while also allowing my knee to heal. I hope I’m back to full strength soon!
